poignant evocative nostalgia
2 May 2001 | by (yardley pa) – See all my reviews

In a time when the world was young and we were happy immortals and the good guys/bad guys demarcation was clearly drawn , there was an unearthly charm to the world. The portrayals by Joan Bennett, Frederick March, Joan Blondell and Ralph Bellamy charm and beguile the soul. The music of Chopin adds a touch of class and elegance.
