Screen Test of Time, Ep. 68: Three Smart Girls
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 1936 nominees wrap up this week with Three Smart Girls, a sort of musical that’s basically a proto-Parent Trap… but are there three smart girls in it? There are three daughters of indeterminate age, true, but are they girls? And if so, why are we supposed to be rooting for two of them to date clearly adult men? Our hosts also wrap up their assessment of the 1936 Academy’s choice— spoiler, David and Suzan are not impressed.
Year Eligible: 1936 (Nominated)
