LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Wyler. Charlton Heston, Jack Hawkins, Stephen Boyd, Haya Harareet, Hugh Griffith, Martha Scott, Sam Jaffe, Cathy O'Donnell, Finlay Currie. Epic-scale rendering of Gen. Lew Wallace's "tale of the Christ." Heston and Boyd are well matched as the proud Jew Ben-Hur and his boyhood friend Messala, whose blind allegiance to Rome turns him into a bitter enemy. Poky at times, but redeemed by the strength of its convictions. Some of the special effects show their age, though the galley-slave sequence and climactic chariot race (directed by Andrew Marton and staged by the legendary stunt expert Yakima Canutt) are still great. Won a record 11 Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actor (Heston), Supporting Actor (Griffith), Cinematography (Robert L. Surtees), Music Score (Miklos Rozsa), Art Direction, Film Editing, Sound, Costume Design, and Special Effects. MGM Camera 65.

50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION. Thrill anew to the visual splendor, thundering action and towering drama of this record-setting winner of 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Charlton... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: W. S. Van Dyke II. Norma Shearer, Tyrone Power, John Barrymore, Robert Morley, Gladys George, Anita Louise, Joseph Schildkraut. Opulent MGM production of life of 18th-century French queen lacks pace but has good acting, with great performance by Morley as Louis XVI. Shearer captures essence of title role as costumer retells her life from Austrian princess to doomed queen of crumbling empire.

Her eyes shine as brightly as the diamonds at her slender throat and the countless candles that turn the Palace of Versailles into a light-drenched fantasy world. She is Marie... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Michael Anderson. David Niven, Cantinflas, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Newton, Buster Keaton, Jose Greco, John Gielgud, Robert Morley, Marlene Dietrich, all-star cast. Oscar-winning favorite has lost much of its charm over the years, but even so, Mike Todd's version of the Jules Verne tale offers plenty of entertainment, and more than 40 cameo appearances offer plenty of star-gazing for buffs. Great Victor Young score was also an Oscar winner, as was the screenplay (James Poe, John Farrow, S. J. Perelman), cinematography (Lionel Lindon) and editing (Gene Ruggiero, Paul Weatherwax). Remade as a 1989 TV miniseries, and in 2004. Todd-AO.

Phileas Fogg bet his fellow club members that he can circle the globe in eighty days. That may not be impressive today, but in 1872, it was nearly impossible. Accompanied by his... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Norman Taurog. Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Gil Stratton, Robert E. Strickland, "Rags'' Ragland, June Allyson, Nancy Walker, Guy Kibbee, Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra. Rooney sent to small Southwestern school to forget girls, but meets Garland and that's that. Great Gershwin score includes "I Got Rhythm,'' "Embraceable You,'' "But Not for Me.'' Busby Berkeley (the original director) staged the finale. Filmed before in 1932; remade as WHEN THE BOYS MEET THE GIRLS.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Henry King. Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Don Ameche, Ethel Merman, Jack Haley, Jean Hersholt, Helen Westley, John Carradine. Corny but entertaining musical chronicling the professional and romantic ups and downs of hot-headed aristocrat bandleader Power, nice-guy pianist-composer Ameche, and tough-but-vulnerable singer Faye (in one of her best performances). Sparked by Irving Berlin songs "Blue Skies," "Easter Parade," title tune.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Charles Walters. Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Celeste Holm, John Lund, Louis Calhern, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Blackmer. Fluffy remake of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is enjoyable, but has lost all the bite of the original. Kelly is about to marry Lund when ex-hubby Crosby arrives, along with reporters Sinatra and Holm. Cole Porter songs include "True Love,'' "Did You Evah?,'' "You're Sensational,'' plus Bing and Satchmo's "Now You Has Jazz.'' Grace Kelly's last acting role. VistaVision.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: H. C. Potter. Fred Astaire, Paulette Goddard, Artie Shaw and his Orchestra, Charles Butterworth, Burgess Meredith. Routine musical comedy with Astaire and Meredith as musicians who want to join Shaw's band; they both have designs on Goddard. Not enough music and hardly any dancing, but what's there is fun. Fred and Paulette dance to "(I Ain't Hep to That Step but I'll) Dig It.''

Originally released in 1940. Directed by Frank Cavett, H.C. Potter. Starring Burgess Meredith, Charles Butterworth, Fred Astaire. more
