Life Begins at 40

untitled2Life Begins at 40 is a 1935 black & white George Marshall comedy starring Will Rogers, Rochelle Hudson, Richard Cromwell and Jane Darwell where a newsman bests a hard-nosed banker and clears a youth framed for bank robbery. This movie, along with other Will Rogers vehicles were generally set in small-town America, where residents all know each other, and picnics, hog-callings, and hayrides are the order of the day. The bucolic settings evoke nostalgia for an idealized time or place that never really existed. Kinda’ like the falsely sentimental olden days when America used to be great!
