A gloriously, heart-rendingly beautiful, stirring picture of a generation in British family life.

It's rife with fey, unintentional camp like the scene in which a newlywed couple pledge eternal love on the deck of an ocean liner -- only to move away and reveal a life preserver labeled Titanic.

Almost certain to be near the top of the list for 1933.

This is the first big film out of the Fox studio since Sheehan's return there and this is a big picture from and on every angle.

Nary a tear-jerking trick is missed (our family loses one son to the Titanic, the other to World War I), and the strangulation is compounded by the staginess since the film.

If nothing else, this reveals something about the lingering power of World War I on the national and international psyches during the era.
