My Brother Jonathan

Harold French (1947)

A Certificate


Our Score
Time has not been kind to the films featuring husband and wife Michael Denison and Dulcie Gray. Yet Denison's clipped tones and stiff acting style and Gray's mousey loyalty turned this into a respectable hit 50 years ago. Based on the bestseller by Francis Brett Young, it follows the fortunes of Black Country doctor Denison, whose ambitions to become a surgeon are thwarted by family ties. Harold French directs steadily, but without the feel for small-town life that dozens of Hollywood journeymen could have rustled up. Polished but emotionally sterile.


A small-town doctor who never fulfilled his dream of becoming a great surgeon looks back on his life. Drama, starring Michael Denison and Dulcie Gray.
