This is a favorite of mine. Bogey can be menacing when called for. The Leslie Howard character is one I can't forget. His fatalism is quite poignant. Here's a man living in a cold, soulless age - the 1930s - of machines who realizes he's swimming against the tide. The portrayal is timeless, and you can see that character updated to the times we live in now.
The cold, soulless age - the 1930s! This is why I mentioned that the film (play), could be remade in many other eras. E.g. Hippies felt that the 60s and 70s was a cold, soulless age and where trying to get back to nature and work with nature instead of trying to dominate it.
The play would also be relevant to our current soulless age of social media and how nature is 'winning' in so many areas; failing dams, climate change, pollution etc.,.,
