TH's picture has been made from a
novel written by the son of a Methodist clergyman in America and tells of the hardships and poverty with which he and his wife had to contend. It is not everybody's picture and calls for patience and adaptation to the more than slow tempo of redric March, who plays the central figure. What inspiration the picture has comes from Martha Scott, but she is not served with much in the way of lines and humour is practically non-existent.
Hollywood often falls down on religious themes. This time they have erred on the side of pedestrianism and have lost a golden opportunity to put
across the live " side of the early Methodists.
