Im Grunde ist Llins' Debt eine Anthologie dreier Kurznovellen, plus gelegentlicher short-story-Abschweifungen, im Erzhlstil auch ganz und gar literarisch gehalten: Es gibt nahezu keinen gesprochenen Dialog, dafr einen omniprsenten Offkommentar eines Erzhlers mit m?igem Durchblick. Die metaphysische Apotheose bleibt schlussendlich eher aus, alles verliert sich im Vagen, ein Epos ber das Verlorengehen. "The road will take you away."

Cody C (gb) wrote: Feels like an absurdly high budget episode of Tales From The Crypt. And the songs don't really go with it. There's some stuff that's great to look at for sure, but it's just not a good movie. Maybe if the leads had had more chemistry and their banter had been more interesting this coulda been something.

The story revolves around Harpo for a change, but Groucho and Chico have good roles as well. This movie is really funny, I liked it, and if you like the Marx Brothers you should see this one. I don't know why some people don't like it, I suppose it wasn't what they expected, but I thought it was a lot of fun.

Claudia is lovely but totally unbelievable as Duke's daughter speaking with her natural Italian accent while supposedly being raise by him, he of course talks like John Wayne. Not a terrible film but diffuse and without a strong point of view, that may be because the film was begun by Frank Capra and finished by Henry Hathaway so there was no clear vision as to the shape the film was suppose to offer.
