Picture is studded with many brilliantly human and dramatic sequences.

Sweetened with a happy ending, it's still an effective piece of work, thanks to Donat's typically sturdy performance and Vidor's powerful direction.

With the exception of compromised ending, King Vidor's film is a good version of Cronin's novel, well acted by Robert Donat as the doctor and the the rest of the cast, including Rosalind Russell and Rex Harrison.

Though it has Vidor's favorite theme of personal rebirth and his enduring country/city dichotomy, it lacks his usual fire.
