It is hard to tell what kind of tone the movie was going for. One reason this was possible is that, with numerous films being made, not every one needed to be a big hit. The music was a character all of its own! Walter Huston and Thomas Mitchell - both superb actors whom I otherwise adore, are waaaaay too old for their characters. The main adjustments in American film-making originated from the film sector itself, with the elevation of the studio heating system.
