Mature. Intelligent. Romantic.

A literate, engaging drama about a middle-aged married couple (played by Walter Huston and Ruth Chatterton) looking to start over on a trip through Europe. The two struggle, however, when the wife is pursued by handsome suitors and the husband grows bored without a job to do. Well-written and romantic classic. Huston is completely natural and note-perfect in the title role. His late-season romance with Mary Astor is one of my film favorites. Director Wyler was famous for his excruciating attention to detail, and it shows through in every scene.
