" Director: Elia Kazan His 17th Movie. My 11th movie watched from the director. Kazan's earlier film, even if already his 17th, shows good directing control and ability to make a long, wordy book, into a digestible movie. The characters come to life effectively and the production as a whole is impressive for its time. Only issue I had was with strange or awkward editing decisions; but I know with the form and cost that was more of a common issue in the 30s. Added to Lists: Dickens at the "
