Description
Leo McCarey's Make Way For Tomorrow is one of the great unsung Hollywood masterpieces, an enormously moving Depression-era depiction of the frustrations of family, aging, and the generation gap. Victor Moore and Beulah Bondi headline a cast of incomparable character actors, starring as an elderly couple who must move in with their grown children after the bank takes their home, yet end up separated and subject to their offspring's selfish whims. An inspiration for Ozu's Tokyo Story, Make Way For Tomorrow is among American cinema's purest tearjerkers, all the way to its unflinching ending, which McCarey refused to change despite studio pressure.

    Comments about this product:

    Absolutely wonderful movie. In my opinion the subject matter is as timely today as when the movie was made in 1937. The acting is superb. Yes, it's a tearjerker, but that's because the story just "tells it like it is" rather than having a trite "happy ending."

      I am an admirer of Leo McCarey's movies. All of them. Superb acting by Beulah Bondi. She's fabulous.

            This movie will pull you into the drama as it unfolds. The picture is thought-provoking as well as timeless in its regard to dealing with the elderly as well as the gap between the generations! Do not miss this emotion stirring picture. A classic tear-jerker.

              Comments about this product:

              I saw this movie several years ago and it has never left my heart. I have never seen such a moving portrayal of how it feels to be separated from those you love by those you love. The struggles this family faces I have seen in my own family and others. The way the actors and the director gives us a view into the tender lives of aging parents everywhere was outstanding. Every one should see it. It changed my perspective on my parents and grandparents.

                  Before telling a family member the release date of this film, I briefly told her the story of this couple and their family. Upon hearing that
                  the release date was 1937 and not 2010, she was
                  astounded. This movie is timeless and proves that only things around us change...but that the
                  human spirit goes on and on.
