Editorial Reviews

A man's life is retold just after his funeral. Beginning as a track walker, Tom Garner rose through all sorts of railroad jobs to head the company. In the meantime, he lost touch with his family. When he saw what was happening, it was already too late. Shown in 4:3 full frame presentation.

Format: DVD
This is a relatively short film of 1 1/4 hours that has the feel of a pre-code Warner Brothers crime film - it moves quickly and crams into it, a lot of incidents that highlight a railroad tycoons rise and fall with the film openning with his funeral and highlighting the revulsion his family, friends and co-workers feel for him - even in death !! So the question is why do they despise him and how did he get to the point where all his worldly success doesn't keep him from committing suicide ? Spencer Tracy plays Tom Garner a man who comes up from nothing by a singleminded ruthlessness to achieve wealth and influence and how in his hell bent quest for power he loses everyone and everything he loves. This movie is perhaps best known as one of Preston Sturges earliest screen writers credits and as a precursor of Orson Welles 1941 classic "Citizen Kane". Sturges screenplay {9 years before Kane} utilizes in it's basic storyline of the rise and fall of a "larger than life" tycoon, a flashback narrative structure in which a voice over narrator reveals Garner's mindset at the end of his life and how past incidents, influences and hubris brought Tom from poverty to success, disaster then death. Did Welles and his screen writer Herman Mankerwitz take a "long hard look" at Sturges screenplay as a prototype for "Citizen Kane? Spencer Tracy is excellent and he is so young, slim and fit - only 33 years old with eyes flashing, teeth bared as he delivers his dialouge with verve and bite - he is simply marvelous.Read more ›

The screenplay that put Sturges on Hollywood's map, and that was the unspoken blueprint for Citizen Kane. This is an incomplete cut of an almost lost film, but the flashes of genius radiate.
