Critic Reviews for White Banners

All Critics (2)

Exemplifies its own themes of honest diligence and warm-hearted communalism, making it much more memorable than some grander, fussier productions of the same period.

Good acting goes a long way in covering up many of the film's plot holes.

Audience Reviews for White Banners


Hokey old drama elevated by the exceptionally strong lead performance of Fay Bainter who even manages to outshine Claude Rains.
