  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Bank Holiday

    Interesting movie where drama, melodrama and comedy meet. If Margaret Lockwood is clearly above the rest of the cast, by her presence and her beauty, one could also say that the supporting roles, at least a dozen of them, are stellar. They are not extras, everyone of them got smart dialogues. They had great scriptwriters then. In the 30's. Recommended.
