Father Noah’s Ark

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 6, 2015

Mrs. Ham, Shem and Japheth, eh? There’s a nice saw mill joke. Mrs. Noah is the shrewish character that prevailed in the medieval mystery play tradition. Rain and sea effects are nice, as is the colour. Also, the sort-of Negro music is quite interesting. An accident? A gesture toward diversity? An accident?
