3 things about William Beaudine’s THE OLD FASHIONED WAY

The Old Fashioned Way [1934]

1. “Every cloud has a silver lining, and every plate of vegetable soup has vegetables.”
2. When he hugs his daughter goodbye, he holds the embrace for a moment longer than necessary. A flicker of recognition on both of their faces. You begin to see why W.C. Fields was such a huge star in the 30’s, combining crankiness, irreverence and sentiment in a heady brew.
3. “She’s all dressed up like a well-kept grave.”
