D: Robert Wise. Jean Simmons, Paul Douglas, Anthony Franciosa, Joan Blondell, Neile Adams, ZaSu Pitts, J. Carrol Naish. Forced, frantic comedy of prim teacher Simmons working as secretary to gangster Douglas, who runs a nightclub; Franciosa is the young associate who romances her. CinemaScope.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Lloyd Bacon. Robert Mitchum, Jean Simmons, Arthur Hunnicutt, Edgar Buchanan, Wallace Ford, Raymond Walburn, Pinky Tomlin. Silly fluff about wealthy, misguided young Simmons, who shows up in Progress, Arkansas, with a scheme to shower its citizens with free money; Mitchum is out of his element as the town doctor. A real dud.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roy Rowland. Jean Simmons, Victor Mature, Mary Jo Tarola, Monica Lewis, Jane Darwell, Dabbs Greer, Olive Carey. Bland romantic drama, mostly told in flashback, chronicling relationship between struggling playwright Mature (who is sorely miscast) and model Simmons.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Otto Preminger. Robert Mitchum, Jean Simmons, Herbert Marshall, Mona Freeman, Leon Ames, Barbara O'Neil, Jim Backus. Ambulance driver Mitchum has the misfortune to meet, and become involved with, scheming young Simmons. Slow, predictable Angel From Texas, An (1940) 69m. **1/2 D: Ray Enright. Eddie Albert, Wayne Morris, Rosemary Lane, Jane Wyman, Ronald Reagan, Ruth Terry, John Litel. Stage producers Morris and Reagan con innocent Albert into backing their show. Pleasant farce, nicely acted by the stars of BROTHER RAT. Based on George S. Kaufman's The Butter and Egg Man, filmed many times under different titles.

Otto Preminger, who showed how to mix a beautiful woman with murder in the landmark Laura, directs this tale of a passion gone haywire. Frank's a regular guy with a steady girl and a... more

Atmospheric drama set during 1889 Paris Exposition with English woman searching for brother who's mysteriously vanished. Worth a look for fans of the offbeat.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, Vivian Blaine, Stubby Kaye, B. S. Pully, Veda Ann Borg, Sheldon Leonard, Regis Toomey. Lavish Hollywoodization of classic Broadway musical based on Damon Runyon's colorful characters with Blaine, Kaye, Pully, and Johnny Silver reprising their stage performances and Brando making a not-bad musical debut as gambler Sky Masterson. Tuneful Frank Loesser score includes "Fugue for Tinhorns,'' "If I Were a Bell,'' "Luck Be a Lady,'' Blaine's memorable "Adelaide's Lament,'' and Stubby's showstopping "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat.'' CinemaScope.

D: George Sidney. Jean Simmons, Stewart Granger, Charles Laughton, Deborah Kerr, Cecil Kellaway, Leo G. Carroll, Kay Walsh. Splashy costumer with Simmons as Elizabeth I, Laughton repeating role of Henry VIII. Fine cast does quite well in historical setting.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Stanley Kubrick. Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Tony Curtis, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, John Gavin, Nina Foch, Herbert Lom, John Ireland, Charles McGraw, Woody Strode, Joanna Barnes. Epic-scale saga with Douglas as a rebellious slave who leads a crusade for freedom against the forces of the Roman Empire. Over-length (particularly in fully restored version released in 1991) and some dramatic weaknesses are offset by Alex North's magnificent score, staggering battle scenes, and the delicious performances of Olivier, Laughton, and especially Ustinov, who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his scene-stealing work. Oscars also went to Art Direction, Costume Design, and Russell Metty's Cinematography. Screenplay by Dalton Trumbo from the Howard Fast novel. Cut for 1967 reissue. In restored print, Anthony Hopkins dubbed Olivier's voice for notorious bathing scene with Curtis. Super Technirama 70.
