In this movie, Colman picks up a little dog, stares into his eyes, and says "I love you." The fur practically melts right off the dog.
This is a shameless old-fashioned love story - but the kind Rudyard Kipling wrote - a strictly for men love story - the women are all heartless or useless, and all that a man really needs to justify his existence is a war, a dog, a horse, a rifle, and his faithful army buddies - but you can forgive all that tripe because of Colman's persuasive persona and performance, Ida Lupino's brave, unsympathetic portrayal, and the trite story that will get to you and leave tears in your eyes, no matter what you believe.
If Colman picked me up and spoke to me the way he spoke to that little dog......
