Mr. Cohen Takes a Walk (1935)

Department store owner Jake Cohen (Paul Graetz), frustrated with a world run by financial projections and number crunching, comes into conflict with his sons who help manage the family business. After the death of his wife, he takes off on a walking tour of rural England to get back in touch with the values on which he had founded his career. This gentle film is a superb example of “quota quickies” – movies made in the UK to fulfill British exhibition quotas – and is presented as part of our WB100 celebration.
