| Here's a movie to pluck from obscurity. See it twice.
Splendid fare! Delicious dialogue! Pay no heed to comments from twerps with attention deficit disorder, this is a fine and engrossing story, a story for grownups and definitely not a victim of old-fashioned techniques. The only thing "old-fashioned" about this movie is the wealth of interesting, true to life characters down to the last bit player. Helen Hayes is a joy and Lucile Watson perfection, as usual. Brian Aherne as the golden boy is looking tall and handsome, his Scottish accent so unforced that I was surprised to realize it was indeed Brian Aherne. This movie, playing in another room of the house, pulled me in and sat me down. I knew it must have been adapted from a stage play, but couldn't guess the playwright. Ah, Mr. Barrie, thank you for this entertaining, feminist movie -- feminist in the true, classic (non Feminazi) sense of the word.
