Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine ...so crammed with sentimental rubbish that it would make an author of birthday greeting cards blush with inferiority. Apr 21, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine The whole family can go to The Last Gentleman and come away greatly edified, convinced of the rewarels of goodness and the awfulness of greed. Jul 23, 2019 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair The picture has one really hilarious and unexpected bit of farce [which] stands as a great relief to the rest of the film, which is pretty much a stock affair.
