Different from actual facts
11 February 2017 | by csweeneykSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this film myself but I've just come across a comment on it by my father, after seeing it in 1938:

I did not enjoy it as much as I might have had I not been studying the actual facts and happenings of that particular year (1921). After what I had read and pondered so much to retain in my memory I could hardly even endure to look at the picture at all, it was so different from what was in my mind. The human touch in it was the only thing that appealed to me, otherwise the picture was empty. Probably I would have thought it a great picture had I not read so much about that particular period, recently.
