George never trusted Potter. Potters theft would not upset George as much as his uncle’s negligence. If you see again you will see that George was really really angry with his uncle who was the one who let George down. He actually let George down first by being so irresponsible he wasn’t next in line to run business. If he wasn’t negligent and irresponsible George would have been able to leave.
I’ve probably seem it 40 or 50 times.
Yes, you are right. In fact that is why I can’t really watch the movie. I want to leap into the screen and strangle his uncle. And Potter too. It’s just too rage inducing to me.
And yet when George went crawling to Potter begging him to lend him the $8,000 to cover the loss, and Potter asked him what happened to the money, George said that he (not the uncle) had lost the money.
Potters theft would not upset George as much as his uncleâs negligence.
Hmmm...George didn’t know Potter stole the money...if he had known, you can bet he’d take it out on Potter’s hide, and not Uncle Billy’s...
