The second screen version of this durable weeper. Although it lacks the charming goofiness of the 1934 version -- provided by W.C. Fields and Zasu Pitts -- it tells the story with enough flourishes to keep you wondering how everyone is going to get out alive and in some semblance of happiness. Watch for a very young May McAvoy in a supporting role.
