Ignore The Lead
24 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Intermittently hilarious comedy-drama from Tay Garnett about straight-arrow William Boyd dealing with his recently-paroled father, Ernest Torrence. Torrence is so good that whenever anyone else needs to speak, they have to send him offstage. The supporting cast (especially Clyde Cook) is excellent, but Boyd is a droning stiff. Some great camerawork from Arthur Miller -- no, not that Arthur Miller -- who seems to not have heard that you can't move a camera about in early sound films.
