Norman Shearer, Fredric March and Charles Laughton are all great in this love story of a daughter trying to marry against her fathers wishes. Charles Laughton is especially good as the father who wants to hold onto all his children. Watch three of the screens best actors and actress at work. This is a beautiful film!
