Screen Test of Time, Ep. 71: A Star is Born
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 original A Star is Born (and only other Best Picture nominee besides the Lady Gaga one), is a good movie with the bones of a great movie, and the first nominee entirely in color! Screen Test of Time favorites Frederic March, Janet Gaynor, and Alfred Anjou turn in excellent performances… just not necessarily in the same film. All the same, it’s still, unquestionably, a movie… which isn’t always the case here at SToT.
Year Eligible: 1937 (nominated)
