Memories
22 December 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Back in the days before VCR's I set my alarm clock to 3:00 Am to watch this film. If you were a film buff back then you had no choice, the TV told you when to watch something. I was a big Clark Gable fan and this was a pretty obscure film that I was keen on seeing.

My grandmother wandered in and sat down with me to watch. She not only knew the film immediately but remembered every moment in the film like she had just seen it. She remembered what she wore and what she had for lunch that day in 1934. This movie was like a time machine for her. She cried at the end like a little girl.

I lost my grandmother not long after that and this memory has stayed with me for 30 years.

I haven't seen the film since but I remember it being a very old fashioned melodrama. It will never get to DVD I suppose.
