last couple minutes got cut off, but i could have missed the last 30 minutes and still told you what happened. this one is all about the writing, which is why remaking it is a bad idea – they just don’t write the way they used to. do they dumb it down for today’s audiences or are they just dumb themselves? i don’t know. at any rate, this is a classic in its own way and not an entirely bad film, but it’s old-fashioned and not really my bag. if i were a girl i’m sure i’d appreciate this more. crawford was a standout.
