They sure don't make movies like that any more.

I saw the movie about 1950. It wasn't unusual then to return older movies to theaters from time to time.

It is worth a look for those who can enjoy a 1935 movie.

I consider it one of the most interesting straight movies made by the studio system. You wondered if the production team was stoned.

By straight I mean no tricks such as flashbacks, distorting lenses, dreams, or supernatural stuff. Linear plot, mania and ego all the way.
