Masterful Schildkraut performance in domestic drama.

It has been almost thirty years since I saw an archive print of this but Rudolph Schildkraut's performance (father to Joseph) still remains with me as an outstanding one and far deserving of an Oscar nomination that first year of the Academy. This is a film about immigrants settling into the land of opportunity - the USA - patriotic, yes and at times quite touching. Still, it's Schildkraut that carries the film - a great performance.
