Coming out in 1942 you'd rarely expect a film that focused on such dark themes as mental disorders, suicide, murder, and more. Not only that but Kings Row also has a nontraditional narrative structure. The story is about a handful of young people who grow up in a small town at the turn of the last century. It shows how, even in the most quaint of locales, there can be a lot of dark things going on behind closed doors. I struggled at times with the roaming plot because I'm more comfortable with a story that follows a single protagonist, but this film makes it clear that there is not an individual who is the main character in the film. I found I was most interested in the story of Drake, played by Ronald Reagan. His struggle later in the film, after an accident threatens to ruin him, is emotional and touches on some really interesting differences between modern times and how life was back then. Speaking of that contrast, Parris is the other lead character (played by Robert Cummings) and his story shows how the world behaved before psychiatry became a regular field of study. Parris is kind of the glue that holds all the disparate stories together, and he has his own tragedy that serves as an inciting incident which was quite traumatic.The early scenes are one of the areas that I struggled with. It did a great job of establishing the characters before the big events started to occur in their lives, but I had difficulty liking some of them because the child actors were not great. There performances weren't a big detriment to my appreciation of the film, because they did enough to display the personalities of the characters, I just wish the line delivery wasn't so flat from some of them. I did not have this problem with any of the adult actors. There was some real talent in the cast of this film and most of the acting increased my rating. Another interesting aspect of the film is the deft way that Kings Row utilized innuendo in order to imply certain things they could not say or show. Modern cinema seems to struggle at times with the idea of restraint because they can and will do whatever they please. But thanks to the code for films in the 40s, they were forced to use subtle visual cues and carefully scripted dialogue to get an idea across. This was never more evident to me than in Kings Row where lots of extremely dark things occur, but they are heavily restricted in how they can convey that information to the audience. This made it a meticulously crafted film, and one that I am glad I have watched. It might have contained some moments that were a bit too saccharine and idyllic, but it took chances almost from start to finish. I might not rush to watch Kings Row again, but I can recommend it to fans of classic film, because this is a winner.

The main reason this film should be viewed is for the insight into a bigone era of moviemaking. It is an adaptation of a popular novel by Vincente Blasco Ibanez, and features an introduction by Orson Welles (the Kino edition).
