There are dinosaurs among us...
12 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film because of Ronald Colman, an excellent actor in my humble opinion. But within the first twenty minutes or so I became overwhelmed by a feeling of incredulity that people such as those on the screen actually existed. Glum, self-satisfied, living in the past, calcified, incapable of novel thought, etc, etc... And then I remembered why I sat to watch the film and I must say Colman did not disappoint. He was as usual thoroughly enjoyable. So on that level the film succeeds. But it also succeeded in reminding me that such as the Apleys exist among us today. True, they are more modern in their speech and dress but no different in their attitudes and prejudices. If for no other reason it is worth seeing as a social commentary and a reminder that there are dinosaurs among us!
