Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler:Cassandra and Thomas lock their father up and refuse to let him out until he has started a new book.]] This is treated as pure slapstick. Several decades later, Creator/StephenKing would use the same concept [[Literature/{{Misery}} but played for horror instead]].

* ValuesDissonance: While Mortmain's behaviour towards his children is mainly harmless, if pretty cold and distant, some of his actions (such as getting mad at Cassandra and pushing her into a wall) definitely don't go over as well today as they would have in the 1930s.

** On a lighter note, the Mortmain girls treat Simon as an oddity because he is a young man with a beard, and he is described as [[SheCleansUpNicely becoming markedly more handsome when he shaves it off]]. This can come off as silly in an era where beards have become a lot more fashionable even among young men.

** I can't tell if it was a ValuesDissonance or just TrueArtIsAngsty that his behavior was tolerated for the most part, even encouraged because apparently he needed to have a nasty temper in order to write.
