James Dunn as Johnny Nolan gives the outstanding performance of his career. He is the dreamer, the guy whom all the world loved and who loved all the world, the fellow who counted among his treasures light-hearted laughter, an appreciation of life and the beauty of everyday living and real friend but who, in the eyes of the realist, was a failure because he failed to provide materially for hin family as if material things ever could replace the gift that wa Johnny Nolan's, the gift for la iik liter, imagination and his dreams for tomorrow ever brightening his days and the days of those with whom he came In contact. Joan Blondell, after a long recess from the films, comes back in glory for as Aunt Cissy she gives one of the finest characterizations of her career. With a heart as big as the world, Aunt Cissy goes through life never losing her .sense of humor, her coquetry, her love for everybody and everything she meets. Calling r3 fn fl 5 THRILLING DAYS!

Aunt Cissy is a woman through and through and Joan Blondell w-as well cast in that role. Peggy Ann Gardner and Ted Donaldson, as Francie and Neeley Nolan, born and reared in the teeming poverty of the slum section of Brooklyn, do remarkably well in their roles. It is rather difficult to imagine a girl as young as Francie possessing' all those dreams however, the Francie in the book was just that, an imaginative, sensitive little girl and the film Francie is just that. I'eggy Ann fiarrinrr fits the part (the takes in the picture and, as in the book, somehow the picture is I'rancle's with all the other characters also in the cast. Ted Donaldson deserves a chuckle as his slightly protruding front teeth, his freckled face and unruly hair are very real and not the least make-believe.
