Perused "howdymax's" comments about how the ending was pat. I watched the last 35 minutes of the film (I hope to watch it in its entirety)and the times and the era this film was made, sensibilities and behaviors were quite different and taking that into account, I would have to totally disagree with "howdymax" and the opinion that was made. Don't know how old "howdymax" is or what era he/she was brought up in, including, the times, e.g., 40s, 50s, 70s? And what ethnic/nationality he/she is from. This is quite an older film, "howdymax" was probably not born and so his/her view and an upbringing years after this film was made must be taken into account.
