Two womanizers fall for a woman determined to keep her virginity.

DirOtto Preminger CastWilliam Holden , David Niven , Maggie McNamara .
99 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Otto Preminger. William Holden, David Niven, Maggie McNamara, Tom Tully, Dawn Addams, Gregory Ratoff. Once-saucy sex comedy about a young woman who flaunts her virginity now seems tame, too much a filmed stage play, with most innuendoes lacking punch. Adapted by F. Hugh Herbert from his stage hit. Hardy Kruger (who has a small part here) played the lead in a German-language version that Preminger filmed simultaneously.

The Japanese Army forces World War II POWs to build a strategic bridge in Burma.

DirDavid Lean CastWilliam Holden , Alec Guinness , Jack Hawkins .
C- 161 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: David Lean. William Holden, Alec Guinness, Jack Hawkins, Sessue Hayakawa, Geoffrey Horne, James Donald, Andre Morell, Ann Sears. British soldiers in Japanese prison camp build a bridge as a morale exercise--under single-minded leadership of British colonel Guinness--as Holden and Hawkins plot to destroy it. Psychological battle of wills combined with high-powered action sequences make this a blockbuster. Seven Oscars include Picture, Director, Actor (Guinness), Cinematography (Jack Hildyard), Editing (Peter Taylor), Scoring (Malcolm Arnold--who used the famous WWI whistling tune "Colonel Bogey March"), and Screenplay (by Carl Foreman and Michael Wilson, based on Pierre Boulle's novel). The writers were blacklisted, so Boulle--who spoke no English--was credited with the script! Filmed in Ceylon. CinemaScope.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Alan Crosland. Al Jolson, May McAvoy, Warner Oland, Eugenie Besserer, Otto Lederer, William Demarest, Roscoe Karns. Legendary first talkie is actually silent with several sound musical and talking sequences. Story of Cantor Oland's son (Jolson) going into show business is creaky, but this movie milestone should be seen once. Songs: "My Mammy,'' "Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye,'' "Blue Skies,'' etc. Look fast for Myrna Loy as a chorus girl. Remade twice (so far!).
