Peripheral viewpoint....WARNING potential spoiler.. The side characters of this film are interesting. Specifically his family's reaction, and more importantly the Night watchman and the Bathroom attendant who replaces him.It was a nice touch having the night watchman be his companion at dinner, rather than his wife or daughter. Just desserts I think. And the attendant he gives dignity and human contact to is also a good touch.A classic that epitomizes those who are born good, and when fortune smiles at them shares such bounty with those who might otherwise never know such kindness.
