Movie Reviews

Sins of the Children
Sonia M. Lipscomb | Glen Rock, NJ | 01/20/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A definite departure from the standard Robert Montgomery roles...a must see for his fans....truly...a view from his 'other' side...."
An endearing Film

"When I first saw this film, the muffled soundtrack in the beginning caused me to wonder if I would be able to get through it. Either my ear became attuned to it or the soundtrack improved as the film continued. My suggestion is to stick it out in the beginning, because this film has a sweet, moving story to tell. It's not original, but there is an endearing quality, the tone of which is set by Louis Mann as the father. Basically a stage actor, I believe he only appeared in this one film, as sadly he died in 1931. Because of his accent, I thought the film took place in Europe, but the viewer soon realizes it's small town U.S.A. in a now romanticized era long passed. Robert Montgomery is excellent in his role as a spoiled but likeable scion of a wealthy family. Leila Hyams plays one of the grown daughters of Mann's family and was one of the most beautiful actresses of her day. Elliot Nugent is very good in his role as another of the grown children. I have added this as one of the must-see Christmas films in my collection. It's a long forgotten film that really should be seen if you enjoy old classic movies and can appreciate black and white films."
