Screen Test of Time, Ep. 29: State Fair

Screen Test of Time is a podcast where Suzan Eraslan and David Daw set out to watch every movie ever nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, in order, from the first awards season to, eventually, the present day. Each week, they watch and review a different movie, and when they've watched everything nominated in a particular year, they tell you whether the Oscar went to the right one!

In this week's episode, David posits the conspiracy theory that State Fair, remade half a dozen times in various media, is funded by the shadowy State Fair Lobby... but is his assertion as wild as it seems? Suzan believes the sole reason for this movie being made was because the camera operators figured out how to put a camera on a roller coaster. Janet Gaynor returns to the Screen Test of Time for the first time since the premier episode!
