LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edwin L. Marin. Chester Morris, Sally Eilers, Scotty Beckett, Henry Travers, C. Henry Gordon, Dorothy Peterson. Morris and Eilers are chased by plane, car, and on foot while helping a little boy escape his nasty custody-claiming relatives and delivering him to his mother in Mexico. Briskly paced but routine B movie with too much comic-romantic banter.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: John Ford. John Wayne, Jeffrey Hunter, Vera Miles, Ward Bond, Natalie Wood, John Qualen, Harry Carey, Jr., Olive Carey, Antonio Moreno, Henry Brandon, Hank Worden, Ken Curtis, Lana Wood, Dorothy Jordan, Pat Wayne. Superb Western saga of Wayne's relentless search for niece (Wood) kidnapped by Indians, spanning many years. Color, scenery, photography all splendid, with moving, insightful Frank Nugent script to match (based on Alan LeMay's novel). And who could ever forget that final shot? Remade and imitated many times since (CARAVANS, WINTERHAWK, GRAYEAGLE, etc.).

Working together for the 12th time, John Wayne and director John Ford forged THE SEARCHERS into a landmark Western offering an indelible image of the frontier and the men and women... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank Tuttle. Edmond O'Brien, Brian Donlevy, Natalie Wood, Raymond Burr, Richard Anderson. Why is mysterious, psychotic Burr spying on Wood and her boyfriend? And what happens after he kidnaps her? Overwrought drama, but fascinating as a time capsule of its era, and then prevalent attitudes toward cops and victims. Burr is quite good.

A cop's daughter is abducted by a love-starved psychotic in this dark suspense-thriller from the director of This Gun for Hire and starring Edmond O'Brien, Natalie Wood and Raymond... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Wellman. Barbara Stanwyck, Ben Lyon, Joan Blondell, Clark Gable, Charlotte Merriam, Charles Winninger. Excellent, hard-bitten tale of nurse (Stanwyck) who can't ignore strange goings-on in home where she works. Blondell adds zingy support; one of Gable's most impressive early appearances. Still potent today.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Patrick Jackson. Ann Sothern, Zachary Scott, Gigi Perreau, Nancy Davis (Reagan), Kristine Miller, John McIntire, Barbara Billingsley. Clever noir-ish melodrama with young Perreau traumatized when she thinks she sees her beloved father (Scott) murder her adulterous stepmother. Davis has one of her best roles as a psychiatrist.

Susan Starrling (Gigi Perreau) sees something no child should ever see: her stepmother's murder. Traumatized and withdrawn, she cannot help her imprisoned father (Zachary Scott),... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Charles Laughton. Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, Evelyn Varden, Peter Graves, James Gleason, Billy Chapin, Sally Jane Bruce. Atmospheric allegory of innocence, evil, and hypocrisy, with psychotic religious fanatic Mitchum chasing homeless children for money stolen by their father. Mitchum is marvelously menacing, matched by Gish as wise matron who takes in the kids. Starkly directed by Laughton; his only film behind the camera. Screenplay credited to James Agee, from the Davis Grubb novel. Remade as a TVM in 1991 with Richard Chamberlain.

The Night of the Hunter - incredibly, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed - is truly a standalone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Wyler. Bette Davis, Herbert Marshall, Teresa Wright, Richard Carlson, Patricia Collinge, Dan Duryea, Charles Dingle. Outstanding filmization of Lillian Hellman's play of greed and corruption within a crumbling Southern family on the financial outs, headed by majestic Davis as ruthless Regina. Collinge, Duryea, Dingle, Carl Benton Reid, and John Marriott all recreate their Broadway roles, with Collinge, Duryea, Reid, and Teresa Wright making their film debuts. Scripted by Hellman. Prequel: ANOTHER PART OF THE FOREST.

D: Herman Shumlin. Bette Davis, Paul Lukas, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Lucile Watson, Beulah Bondi, George Coulouris, Donald Woods, Henry Daniell. Fine filmization of Lillian Hellman's timely WW2 play of German Lukas and wife Davis pursued and harried by Nazi agents in Washington. Lukas gives the performance of his career, which won him an Oscar; Bette somewhat overshadowed. Script by Dashiell Hammett.
