Mostly of historic interest...but not bad
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Short in which Bert (Lynne Overman) brings his boss (Berton Churchill) home to dinner. It seems there's a big promotion that's going to happen in the company and Bert hopes he gets it. His wife (Sylvia Sidney) wants it too.

Interesting short showing how bad it really was during the Depression. It's made quite clear that the couple barely has enough to eat (Sidney says she had to go from door to door begging for food) so you're rooting for them. Sidney was unknown when this was made but she's great. Churchill is good as the boss. Overman was a little TOO whiny for me.

No great shakes and more historically important than a good drama but worth seeing if it's on. TCM shows this between movies occasionally.
