100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Of Leo McCarey's stunning 1937 drama 'Make Way for Tomorrow', Orson Welles famously said "It would make a stone cry." Welles' enthusiasm for the film was reflected years down the line by Yasujiro Ozu when 'Make Way for Tomorrow' became the inspiration for his highly-acclaimed film 'Tokyo Story', a regular fixture in Sight and Sound's top 10 of all time polls.

"FROM PAGE TO SCREEN Beulah Bondi Barkley and Lucy Cooper are an elderly couple with five grown children. Their children are a bit self-centered and preoccupied with their own lives. Luckily, their romance has never wavered, and as long as they have each other, they have someone to depend on. Unfortunately the Great Depression hits them hard, and they lose their home to foreclosure. None of their children are willing to take in both of them, so they must separate temporarily. This separation grow"
