I love it. Tough, intelligent, funny, but not too harsh on fat Henry. Vivid support roles (Lanchaster is excellent negotiaiting his marriage), everybody is dignified in the last moment, and that includes Henry, of course. Wonderful scenes in the sweatty kitchen, as a prelude for the best Laughton monologues.
