    Kirk Douglas' performance...is so strong and inspiring it's a shame there isn't a better movie around it.

    A treacly, ham-fisted, German-American co-production about family ties that should only have been released in the circle of Hell reserved for movie critics.

    See this movie for Douglas and Bacall, ignore the dialogue and just bask in their star chemistry, still strong after all these years.
