| Good movie
I stumbled across this movie yesterday on WGN. I really enjoyed watching it. I collect old toys and knew a little bit about the AC Gilbert company. Movie takes place from about 1910ish to Xmas 1918. Alexander was very good in the role--only yelled once in the film. The props were mostly right on. The Dictaphone machine used was incorrect--an authentic Dictaphone from the time didn't use a horn to speak into. Plus they were electric by this time. Also the cylinders are longer than the one used. I also noticed a fan in the factory that was made well after WWI. Another critic noticed AC jr was born in 1919. Otherwise, props were appropriate for the time period. Film moved nicely from beginning of the business through the end. I thought the young FDR was done well. I'd recommend the film both as a Xmas tradition and a history lesson about AC Gilbert. If you ever owned an American Flyer trainset, chemistry set or Erector set, you've been in touched by AC Gilber.
