Over time, this movie holds up very well.
I have been watching this movie off and on since it came out. I never tire of it. Somehow, it never becomes dated. Even the costumes, with one or two exceptions, are timeless. Alec Guinness, as Gully Jimson, is a delightful character that we can root for even when he is totally wrong. The impact of this movie was so great on me that when I see a large blank space on a wall I think of Gully Jimson and wish to see a picture painted on it.
