Don´t do booze!
A good old classic. As in the early days, a moral story on what happens to a man if he starts to drink and gamble. Yes! Drinking and gambling are bad for you! 🙂 Anyways, I enjoyed watching it, since it so well reflects one of the popular themes of cinema of the early days: the moral story. This movie also reminds you of, how it was like in those days, especially what it was like to be poor. Movies of this era are always worth seeing
