Dodsworth

William Wyler's 1936 rendition of Sinclair Lewis's story of innocents abroad, with Walter Huston and Ruth Chatterton as a staid American businessman and his impressionable wife, resisting the seductions of Europe with varying degrees of success. By far the most sensitive, restrained, and effective piece of direction Wyler ever turned in, the film achieves a measure of greatness through the dignity and depth of Huston's superb interpretation of the plainspoken Yankee.
