  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Boss

    Nous sommes en 1919; démobilisé de la Grande Guerre, Matt Brady revient à Saint-Louis, où son frère Tim dirige efficacement la cité, grâce à sa maîtrise du système politique. Il se saoule à mort et se marie avec une inconnue croisée dans la rue, après que sa promise Elsie l'ait éconduit. MOYEN MAIS INTERESSANT. www.cinefiches.com
