23 ½ HOURS LEAVE (Theatrical Release USA 1937)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

23 ½ Hours Leave
—nice trip back in time—has a well-done storyline that sweetly shows: life flows about the same through the generations. The story is a remake of a 1919 short film of the same name. It’s fun, cute, and a good, easy-on-the-mind movie. The singing is phenomenal and well-appreciated.
