What did you rate 'Life Begins at Forty' (1935)?


Will Rogers is a small-town newspaper publisher who tangles with a local banker (George Barbier) when he hires the young man (Richard Cromwell) who went to jail three years before for robbing the bank. Rogers sets out to prove the boy was innocent.

This leisurely, very charming comedy has a good cast that includes Jane Darwell, Slim Summerville and Sterling Holloway.

I rated it a 7. What did you rate this comedy? And what do you think of it?

I rated it a 7, too. I can see why people loved Will Rogers as a film actor, he was a natural, and he never had a bad scene or overacted, and the supporting players are all great. It's just a nice small town story, the kind I wish they still made.
