Wrath for Roth's Sake

Wrath for Roth's Sake

After having seen the film "I'll Cry Tomorrow". I am inclined to wonder if your reviewer actually did see it. If he really thinks that it concentrates on showing the evils of bad habits and the organisations devoted to their cure: that it has no real human conflict; that the dialogue is depressingly mediocre and that Susan Hayward just revels in it. I advise him to follow the advice of one the characters in the film, and "Go out and live". He then may have some qualification for criticising the manner in which life is represented in films.

He should get his facts correct too. The man who died was not Miss Roth's husband.—F.I.

[Our reviewer when asked to comment replied that the implications of F.L.'s final sentence have made him determined to see the film if it ever comes back.—Ed.]
