..Over the Hill 1931..
26 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is the only movie my dad would always speak about. For him it had an important message. I purchased this movie from 'Loving the Classics'. If you purchase with their lower price shipping it will take about 17 days to receive the DVD. They are an Internet Movie store that sells old movies.

I'm writing this to alert IMDb member EGALITARI as to where he can purchase this movie that he gave such a great review for. I enjoyed it as well. I got it's message.

My understanding is that the 1931 version is the 3rd remake of this movie. I would think that the previous two may be silent versions. Does anyone know what years they were made and if they are available for sale and from whom?
