Audience Reviews for Of Human Hearts


The acting is good but the sentiment is laid on a little thick.

Super Reviewer


Of Human Hearts (1938) -- [5.5] -- Torn on this one. Love Walter Huston, Jimmy Stewart, Charles Coburn, and beautiful riverside setting. But don't care much for the "Father Knows Best," Forrest Gumpiness of the thematic resolution. John Carradine makes a cameo appearance under pretty convincing makeup as Abraham Lincoln -- the scene's dumb, but the makeup's good.
