Source verse novelist C.J. Dennis is the only member of cast and crew to work on both 'The Sentimental Bloke' (1919) and its first major remake 'The Sentimental Bloke' (1932). Dennis appeared in an acting role as himself in the 1919 film and then later was screenwriter on the 1932 version. See more »
The Sentimental Bloke, to myself, is difficult to understand in terms of the inter titles. However, I can easily follow the movie and know what it want to communicate with audiences. In this movie, I can feel great sense of love. By this I mean I can see between somethings I would like to call 'Good' and 'Evil' sides of the Bloke fighting during the movie. The Bloke uses 'love,' as I already mentioned, as a weapon of the 'Good' to fight his 'Evil.' For example, when he met Doreen he decided to be a good husband and it appears again when he had a baby. As I can feel from this movie, the power of love no matter who you love, it is a great weapon to fight everything and to overcome any problems you may face.
