Screen Test of Time, Ep. 86: Boys Town
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!

Spencer Tracy and Mickey Rooney don’t have the greatest track record here on Screen Test of Time, and they co-star in Boys Town, a biopic about a priest who started a literal incorporated town for homeless boys cum bad-kid-goes-good fairytale. Will our hosts hate it, or will Tracy and Rooney defy their record?
