Review – If this is not the best movie of all time, it certainly comes close to that level. Everything is first-rate: The story, cast, direction, dialogue, sets, music, and other values. Classic, quotable, and influential, this is an absolute masterpiece that only a true hater of old movies would dislike. A film everyone should see at least once.
