One point that need not be labored is where in "Cass Timberlane," which came yesterday to the Music Hall, Sinclair Lewis is left off and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer begins. For Mr. Lewis' story of the billing and phooeying of a middle-aged, Midwest judge with his young and provokingly restless helpmate was so obviously and methodically designed for motion picture translation that it couldn't be very much abused. And it hasn't been. Omitting details, Metro has made the film as slick and as pat and as implausible as Mr. Lewis' yarn. Most evident token of conformance to the pulpy original is the presence of Lana Turner as the itchy, spoiled, immature wife. Miss Turner has a notable capacity to drive men to distraction if not to worse, and her recognized class in that department has been popularly established on the screen. So it fits precisely into the pattern of Mr. Lewis' plot that Judge Timberlane's eyes should pop wide open when Miss Turner first swims into his judicial ken. It is well within the bounds of glamorous reason that she should hook the poor bachelor like a fish and that she should lead him a merry chase of fretting and suspecting after they are wed. And it is likewise romantically consistent that she should be a fundamentally true and worthy wife and that, after she has had her little folly with a young rascal, the wise and loving judge should take her back. Metro has even done much better than did Mr. Lewis by his beauty-parlor tale in casting the magnificent Spencer Tracy as the aging but still romantic judge. No one, save maybe Walter Pidgeon, would be more flattering to the role—and it is notable that a glimpse of Mr. Pidgeon is permitted in one cocktail party scene. For Mr. Tracy has that comforting ability to seem strongly independent and offhand while being enslaved beyond question by Miss Turner's irresistible cosmetic charms. Plainly he towers superbly over Mr. Lewis' drab and droopy judge. And although there are hints in his performance that he loathes the sappy things he has to do, such as read Millay poetry to Miss Turner and speak some of Donald Ogden Stewart's coy lines, he plays the role patiently, soundly, like a good little Metro man. To be sure, there are large-scale omissions of the many and biting details of social stagnation and frustration in a Midwest city that were in the book. And the highly tailored performances of such people as Zachary Scott, who plays the snake that lures Miss Turner, and Albert Dekker, Mary Astor and John Litel as Bourbons of Grand Republic merely tint a tenebrous atmosphere. But what, after all, is the difference in a film which obviously intends just to please a conditioned fancy for a shiny-paper romance—and does?

A Season of Splendor: The Court of Mrs. Astor in Gilded Age New York
Journey through the splendor and the excesses of the Gilded Age
"Every aspect of life in the Gilded Age took on deeper, transcendent meaning intended to prove the greatness of America: residences beautified their surroundings; works of art uplifted and were shared with the public; clothing exhibited evidence of breeding; jewelry testified to cultured taste and wealth; dinners demonstrated sophisticated palates; and balls rivaled those of European courts in their refinement. The message was unmistakable: the United States had arrived culturally, and Caroline Astor and her circle were intent on leading the nation to unimagined heights of glory."
—From A Season of Splendor
Take a dazzling journey through the Gilded Age, the period from roughly the 1870s to 1914, when bluebloods from older, established families met the nouveau riche headlong—railway barons, steel magnates, and Wall Street speculators—and forged an uneasy and glittering new society in New York City. The best of the best were Caroline Astor's 400 families, and she shaped and ruled this high society with steel.
A Season of Splendor is a panoramic sweep across this sumptuous landscape, presenting the families, the wealth, the balls, the clothing, and the mansions in vivid detail—as well as the shocking end of the era with the sinking of the Titanic.
