Extremely dated no matter how you look at it: cinematography, acting, script. A museum piece, showing what a Oscar-winning blockbuster (best grossing film of its year) looked like in 1933.

Again, not as bad as it is portrayed

Yeah, I found this on VHS through the library. The flick really doesn't have much going for it -- its idea of drama is having the characters cry a lot while random historical events fly by in the background.

I struggled through 30 minutes before I gave up and put on They Live instead. Best decision of the night.

public domain is currently set to before 1923. they're has been a hold for a few years now... In 2019 it will move to before 1924. 2020 to before 1925.

This is just my opinion, northwest8, but the Great Depression and WWI are pretty huge moments in American history, in any century (well, in any of the four centuries in which the United States existed). Sure, there are other huge moments (WWII and specifically Pearl Harbour are arguably a lot bigger), but diminishing the relevance of first third of the century is a very short-sighted thing to do.

That war montage sure was a thing of beauty.

Duke of Omnium summed this up perfectly.

Not nearly as bad as some people believe. Great movie for it's time!! I wasn't bored. That being said, this was a movie the would have been wonderful as a 4 hour epic. The characters would have been fleshed out more. You can also see a lot of "Upstairs, Downstairs" in it. I'm willing to bet Jean Marsh (creator of Upstairs, Downstairs) was influenced by this film.

It's terrible. Saw it on VHS years ago. Fox Movie Channel shows it a lot.

It was released on VHS, and you can still buy copies of it online (though for much more than it's worth, in my opinion.) Fortunately I didn't have to pay anything for it since my local library has it.

Surely this film must almost be in public domain if it isn't already?

How have people seen this? It's never played on TV and is not available on video as far as I can tell.
