Screen Test of Time, Ep. 69: The Good Earth
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!

1937 is not off to a good start with The Good Earth. A cast led by Paul Muni and Luise Rainer, white actors in yellow face hair and makeup, portraying rural Chinese peasants at the turn of the 20th century, this may be the most infuriating movie Suzan and David have seen so far.
Year Eligible: 1937 (Nominated)
