Film Preview – Bognor Regis Observer – Saturday, 16 October 1948

PAVILION, SELSEY. To Charles Coburn "THE GREEN YEARS "—an adaptation of A. J. Cronin's novel read by millions the world over—coming on Monday for three days, gives that veteran actor the finest role of his long and illustrious career as the irascible, irreverent Grandpa Gow, who keeps his hard-shelled Presbyterian family and an entire Scotch community in an almost constant state of shock with his "antisocial antics." The story is that of a poor Irish lad and his efforts to obtain an education and carry on his beliefs in spite of handicaps—and Grandpa has an important hand in the boy's destiny. For the remaining three days, entertainment is provided by a screenplay based on the life and music of Jerome Kern, entitled "TILL THE CLOUDS ROLL BY." Heading the long list of front rank stars who portray the many characters whose paths cross Kern's tuneful road to success are June Allyson, Judy Garland, Kathryn Grayson, Van Johnson, Tony Martin, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, and Robert Walker as Jerome Kern.
