    Classic comedy, one of my favorites. Runs circles around the surprisingly lame remake by the previously infallible Coen bros. 9 years 7 months ago

    Here's the thing: it should be viewed from the point of view of the plot and structure, whereupon it transforms into a masterpiece of character acting - which leads to its understated central theme or idea, namely how character judgements are formed. To get a better idea of this theme, look at the way such character judgements about the central figure of the "little old lady" are formed and developed.

    Ideally, therefore, if your are new to this film, you should see it twice before making up your own mind.
