“A couple has lived happily together for 50 years. They lose their home to a bank. Their five grown children are sincerely sorry to hear this, but what can they do with them? It is decided that mother and father will stay with two different children, ‘for now.’ Their last night in their home is the last time they will sleep together in the same bed… It is remarkable that a film this true and unrelenting was made by Hollywood in 1937.”
– Roger Ebert

“Has three qualities rarely encountered in the cinema: humanity, honesty, and warmth.”
– Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times
