CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Sidney Franklin. Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontanne, Roland Young, ZaSu Pitts, Maude Eburne, Herman Bing. The Lunts' only starring film is charming tour de force from Molnar's comedy of jealous husband testing his wife's fidelity. Remade as THE CHOCOLATE SOLDIER and LILY IN LOVE.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Dorothy Arzner. Joan Crawford, Franchot Tone, Robert Young, Billie Burke, Reginald Owen, Lynne Carver, George Zucco, Dickie Moore. Lowly Crawford is thrust into society on the whim of a count and becomes the romantic object of aristocrat-playboy Young and soulful peasant Tone. Glossy soaper based on a play by Ferenc Molnar.

A jealous husband tests his opera-singer wife's fidelity by pretending to be another man.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Roy Del Ruth. Nelson Eddy, Rise Stevens, Nigel Bruce, Florence Bates, Dorothy Gilmore, Nydia Westman. Not the Oscar Straus operetta, but rather a remake of Molnar's THE GUARDSMAN. Eddy and Stevens are husband-wife opera stars; to test her fidelity, he disguises himself as a Cossack and woos her. Much too talky and not enough music; remade as LILY IN LOVE.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Richard Thorpe. William Powell, Myrna Loy, Florence Rice, John Beal, Jessie Ralph, Edgar Kennedy, Sidney Toler, Mary Gordon, Donald Meek. Loy's orchestration of her sister's wedding is upset by the presence of free-spirited bohemian Powell. The stars are the whole show in this disappointing adaptation of Ferenc Molnar's play Great Love.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Vidor. Grace Kelly, Alec Guinness, Louis Jourdan, Agnes Moorehead, Jessie Royce Landis, Brian Aherne, Leo G. Carroll, Estelle Winwood. Mild Molnar comedy of manners has attractive cast but not much sparkle. Jourdan good as Kelly's suitor, but she's promised to prince Guinness. Filmed before in 1925 and (as ONE ROMANTIC NIGHT) in 1930. CinemaScope.

Carousel (1956)

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Henry King. Gordon MacRae, Shirley Jones, Cameron Mitchell, Barbara Ruick, Claramae Turner, Robert Rounseville, Gene Lockhart. Excellent filmization of Rodgers & Hammerstein's memorable adaptation of Ferenc Molnar's Liliom, with MacRae as rowdy carousel barker Billy Bigelow, who tries to change for the better when he falls in love with Jones. Excitement of wide- screen location filming will be minimized on TV, but moving characters, timeless songs remain. Script by Phoebe and Henry Ephron. Filmed before as LILIOM in 1930 and 1934. CinemaScope 55.

A rigid police detective accidentally uncovers his wife's illegal past.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wyler. Kirk Douglas, Eleanor Parker, Horace McMahon, William Bendix, Lee Grant, Craig Hill, Cathy O'Donnell, Bert Freed, George Macready, Joseph Wiseman, Gladys George, Frank Faylen, Luis van Rooten, Warner Anderson, Michael Strong, Gerald Mohr. Sidney Kingsley's once-forceful play about life at a N.Y.C. police precinct has lost much of its punch, but is still a fine film. Well cast, with Douglas a bitter detective, Parker his ignored wife, and Bendix, in one of his best roles, a sympathetic colleague. McMahon (the shrewd precinct head), Wiseman (an hysterical thief), Grant (unforgettable as a frightened shoplifter), and Strong (another thief) recreate their Broadway roles. This was Grant's first film--and also her last--before being blacklisted. Screenplay by Philip Yordan and Robert Wyler (the director's brother).
