The idealization of the American dream is a little overbearing but the film does a good job of portraying the human drama. Kazan keeps it interesting for nearly three hours by letting the viewer feel the lead's sense of ambition mixed with desperation and the hope that carries him through it.

Elia Kazan's story of his uncle's epic journey from Turkey to Ellis Island. The trail is frought with hardship and treachery and terrible lessons. It's an excellent film all around, from Haskell Wexler's superb cinematography to the pacing (although quite long, it flows along smoothly) to the performances. I can't really think of any significant problems with it, except that it lacks a certain something to make it special. Still, a very fine piece of work, quite watchable and worthwhile.
