"Are You Afraid" (Poem) Make Way For Tomorrow Leo Robin (W)

A tender scene from Leo McCarey‘s Make Way for Tomorrow, a 1937 film about an elderly couple who are forced to separate when they lose their house and none of their five children will take both parents, there is a memorable poem written by Leo Robin — "Are You Afraid." The director McCarey believed that it was his finest film and when he accepted his Academy Award for Best Director for The Awful Truth which was released the same year, he said "Thanks, but you gave it to me for the wrong picture."
