The escalation of conflict is joyously contrived (Finlayson reduces The Boys' car to spare parts, and they do the same to his house), and the pay-off - in which the entire cast is reduced to tears! - is no less satisfactory.

Comments Same print used so we wonder why the Kinowelt is cropped? The music is the same on both editions. We have made screen captures with print damage, but notice there is very few and most of them is only on a single frame - the film is generally in a great condition.
