The Late George Apley (1947)
Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Apley is a handsomely produced film with an atmosphere faithful to Boston of the early 1900s.
Taken from John P. Marquand's novel, the film is a gentle satire of veddy uppah-class Bostonians and the familial and personal demands put upon them as they strive to maintain their social status.
is superb as the patriarch whose outward stuffiness hides the compassion
and caring beneath the facade.
Colman with Vanessa Brown and Mildred Natwick
