Screen Test of Time, Ep. 66: Dodsworth
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!

A film that tries to justify a husband’s neglectful, sometimes abusive treatment of his wife basically because she wants to go on a vacation he promised her over 20 years ago, Dodsworth is a misogynistic polemic masquerading as the unholy marriage of a grand tour narrative and the slow, agonizing story of a couple’s divorce.
Year Eligible: 1936 (Nominated)
