      A Story of True Frienship

        Comments about this product:

        This movie details beautifully something our culture has lost, namely, the self-sacrficial love of true friendsip. It also chronicles a period in time when people forgot God and when those who had much forgot their duty to the less fortunate. Both ended up in a disaster from which history never really recovered. However, in the kindness and charity of Ronald Coleman's character we see the antidote to both tragedies. This is an authentic "feel good" movie.

        I prefer OLD movies to new ones!! Have ordered many old movies from TCM and never tire of them. (I am very discriminating and never watch R rated films.) My grandchildren can enjoy all my movies with me as they are wholesome and really great! I have a wonderful collection.

          I am very discriminating but still enjoy a large collection of CLASSIC films from TCM. Love old movies that are not scary or vulgar or take God's name in vain, so I can watch them with my grandchildren ages five to seven. I am giving them many movies for Christmas.

              Ronald Colman always plays a good hearted character. Even when he's a drunk he does what's right and is a good guy.
              One of many great movies my Dad and I can sit and watch together. Very heartwarming.

                An all-time classic that is also the finest example of that famous Ronald Colman "velvet voice" and one of his best performances. He was a wonderful actor.
