I CLAIM this is a bear of a film.
The lightings and atmosphere
are truly artistic, tho handling
and direction excellent; the cost,
without exception, fitted their re
Bpectlve roles perfectly, keeping this
human and real all the way, and the

all the time you were watching It.
The excellent combination of all tho

don't come often and my hat is off

put over. Wld.
