Critic Review - TV Guide's Movie Guide

A nicely told, occasionally highly emotional story, but the main purpose of the film seems to be to give writer-director Elia Kazan an excuse to pat himself on the back.

"pat himself on the back"...wow, you obviously did not see this movie. His uncle (NOT KAZAN HIMSELF) giving himself to bring his family to America as a "shoeshine boy" so they are relieved of religious persecution. Yeah, he definitely "pat himself on the back". Pretty ignorant analysis.
