Description: Make Way for Tomorrow, by Leo McCarey, is one of the great unsung Hollywood masterpieces, an enormously moving Depression-era depiction of the frustrations of family, aging, and the generation gap. Beulah Bondi and Victor Moore 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 Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story, this is among American cinema’s purest tearjerkers, all the way to its unflinching ending, which McCarey refused to change despite ... (more)

"18.1. Pankki vie iäkkään pariskunnan talon, joten on aika muuttaa lasten luokse. Kuten arvata saattaa, ovat lapset aivan innoissaan vanhempien pilatessa sosiaalisen elämän ja arkiset askareet. Raadollisella tavalla vanhuuden taakan näyttävä elokuva kuitenkin tuo katsojan eteen useita eri tapoja tarkastella ikäihmisiä ja sitä, miten koemme heidän arvonsa maailmassa. Työelämässä ja jokapäiväisessä arjessa homma ei vain yksinkertaisesti toimi, mutta hetkellisesti pitkää parisu"

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. McCarey himself was immensely proud of 'Make Way for Tomorrow' and when he won the Oscar for Best Director for screwball comedy 'The Awful"

"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"
