Window Into The Past
24 November 2016 | by shortstop-09516See all my reviews

How harsh some of the reviews are for this little movie! This little movie wasn't trying to hurt anyone nor was it trying to be "art" or "groundbreaking" or any of the other things that critics both amateur and professional are so found of babbling about. It was meant as entertainment. And guess what? It entertains! It's a wonderful window into girl's schools of the 1930's, made with gusto, given some Hollywood drama, given some Hollywood shine, and sent out into the world to entertain. It has committed no crime. It has not asked to be compared to the greatest movies of all time. Then why do so? Should a father compare his daughter to the Queen of England? Of course not! It would be cruel and pointless. And so too with this movie.
