A man’s life is retold just after his funeral. Beginning as a track walker, Tom Garner rose through all sorts of railroad jobs to head the company. In the meantime he lost touch with his family. When he saw what was happening it was already too late. –IMDb
Kind of like CITIZEN KANE if CITIZEN KANE kind of sucked. Fascinating Juvenilia from Preston Sturges mirrors KANE's narrative structure kinda-sorta-well-not-really, but fascinating doesn't equal good, since it's rather literal minded and rather maudlin, and Tracy, who was generally electric in this period of his career, appears a little overwhelmed.
