While there's no such thing as a timeless '30s Oscarbait literary adaptation, this comes pleasantly within spitting distance of that mark.

Charles Laughton in the part of Javert gave it as much character merely because the character as written was eminent, giving a balance to the whole story.

It isn't a bad example of the Hollywood prestige picture -- there is, at least, some liveliness in the performances.

The 1935 film is a powerful version, centering on the antagonism between Valjean and Javert - though the filmmakers had to jettison much of Victor Hugo's pages to set up this dynamic.
