Screen Test of Time, Ep. 31: Cavalcade

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!

The winner for 1932/1933, Cavalcade is like a season and a half of television that they've just slammed into a hundred and fifty minutes... or the first three seasons of Downton Abbey, with basically the same plot. The sinking of the Titanic? Check. World War I? Check. The Roaring 20s? Check. Well developed characters that we care about? Uh... Romanticism of the British class system? Check. Suzan has just returned from a trip to Thailand is super punchy with jet lag. David's just punchy as usual.
