Typical 30's vehicle with Wallace Beery
8 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a well made, well done production with Wallace Beery with an all too familiar storyline that he was routinely doing in his career at this time. He was a drifter coming back to town and checking in on his family and slowly trying to ingratiate back into their lives by turning back on his demons by being a more positive person. His ex-wife was Janet Beecher but there was no chemistry between them, which made it easier to believe they did not like each other but hard to imagine that he would want to get back together to make their 'family' whole again. There was an all too familiar storyline in trying to impress his son and win back his love and respect (of course, many plot twists try to prevent and hinder them from reconciling). It still is an interesting watch if you have not seen and request TCM if you can for them to view.
