      Robert R This was a very sweet movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/16/23 Full Review David K This might be a tough one to track down. I saw it during TCM's WB100 event in April. It's one of the entries originating from Teddington Studios, an operation set up in England by Warner Brothers to ensure they met a quota imposed on the domestic film industry wherein 20% of the programming had to come from Britain. As to the film, it's a story about a wealthy older Jewish man who has built a top flight department store business from scratch. He's slowly being edged out of the business by his sons. So, he decides to hit the road and walk throughout England. That's where the movie gets the most interesting. The situations he finds himself in and the people he meets are the heart of the story's message. If you can catch it, and you have an interest in 1930's British cinema or Warner Brothers, you'll enjoy it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
