For decades, Dodsworth has been one of William Wyler's underappreciated films, despite Walter Huston's Oscar-winning performance and the familiarity of the material; it began as a Sinclair Lewis novel and had a life as a Broadway play as well. However - underappreciated no longer!
Dodsworth will be shown at the New York Film Festival tonight, Thursday, October 10, in a "gorgeous" (NYFF's word) restoration screening. Sara Fishko extols the film's many virtues in this Fishko Files. (Originally produced in 2002, revised in 2017).
