Description
A heartwarming look at family and friendship, The Human Comedy is the poignant story of high school student Homer Macauley (Mickey Rooney) and the lives he touches while delivering telegrams throughout his small California town during the troubling years of World War II. Based on an original screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright William Saroyan (which he would later adapt into a bestselling novel), the movie received four Oscar® nominations Best Picture, Director, Actor (Rooney) and B&W Cinematography and won for Best Story. Reportedly the favorite film of MGM studio Chief Louis B. Mayer, The Human Comedy is both moving and timeless, a masterful celebration of the American way of life.

        Comments about this product:

        Mickey Rooney makes this picture work. There are numerous plots but Mickey makes the strongest impression. This reminds one of Our Town except in World War II era. It's a bit like Andy Hardy without the over-the-top Andy energy. Here he's calmer but just as lovable. Faye Bainter is perfect as mother and Frank Morgan as the aging telegraph operator. Jack Jenkins nearly steals the show from Mickey as the most natural five year old on screen.
