THE STORY: The Apleys and their in-laws furnish delightful and incisive comedy and drama against which we see George’s two children, a young man and a young woman, each of whom strives heroically to break away from the shackles of family and tradition: Eleanor manages to do so and makes a satisfactory life for herself, while John, who falls in love with a young woman who had the bad taste not even to be born in Boston, is crushed by his father and all his father stands for.
Based on Mr. Marquand’s novel. A delightful play of character and situation centering upon the epic figure of George Apley, the personification of old Boston tradition.
