Critics reviews

The banker, the gangster and the crowd, a forceful tale for the New Deal just around the corner, capitalism’s kinetic pulse as well as its shadowy desperation. Hitchcock has a concurrent dilemma in The Skin Game and Wyler takes note for The Best Years of Our Lives, Capra makes his own adjustments in It’s a Wonderful Life.
