about no room at the inn
30 January 2006 | by arezendes-1See all my reviews

since i was a little boy , i have heard about this film , i have never seen this film , i wanted to say , that as a child in england in the late 1940's my mother said that this was her all time favorite movie,so i am sure that it has some merit! since i have never seen this film i really do not have the right to comment on it. it seems to me that this film has left a very tangible impression on my mother. so in conclusion i would say that this is a film was well worth seeing! ever though i have never seen it. i am no film critic , i would say give it a try ! you may find that it is a wonderful link to another era in cinema.thank you.
