A Fun Movie Worth Putting Up With
I love these movies.
As advertised, this is a very typical ‘Old House’ movie. Not stagey at all, with a cast of maybe 18 characters, it does get to the edge of goofy in some scenes. With that many characters, few stand out. My favorite was the obvious choice of the Italian barber.
The print was clearly worn out. Not many shades of grey, missing small chunks of film, and poor audio.
