LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Norman Taurog. Van Johnson, June Allyson, Butch Jenkins, Hume Cronyn, Una Merkel, Arlene Dahl, Richard Derr. Silly, predictable farce in which irresponsible children's book author Johnson pretends to be Jenkins' widowed father in order to keep illustrator Allyson from exposing his shenanigans.

D: Robert Z. Leonard. Esther Williams, Van Johnson, John Lund, Paula Raymond, Clinton Sundberg, Connie Haines, Mel Torme, Amanda Blake. Williams vehicle has her going to Sun Valley to assist her lovesick roommate, attracting bandleader Johnson. Guest stars Lena Horne, Eleanor Powell (in her last film), and Red Skelton pep up formula production.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Robert Z. Leonard. Judy Garland, Van Johnson, S. Z. "Cuddles'' Sakall, Spring Byington, Clinton Sundberg, Buster Keaton. Musical remake of THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, with Garland and Johnson the pen pals who fall in love. Not up to most MGM Garland vehicles, but pleasant. Judy's daughter Liza Minnelli appears in the finale.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roy Rowland. Van Johnson, Arlene Dahl, Gloria DeHaven, Tom Drake, Leon Ames, John McIntire, Donald Woods, Norman Lloyd, Jerome Cowan. Bland, talky film noir in which hard-boiled L.A. cop Johnson sets out to solve the murder of his ex-partner, who might have been on the take.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Wellman. Van Johnson, John Hodiak, Ricardo Montalban, George Murphy, Marshall Thompson, Denise Darcel, Don Taylor, Richard Jaeckel, James Whitmore, James Arness, Scotty Beckett. Star-studded replay of Battle of the Bulge: division of American troops, their problems and reactions to war. Robert Pirosh's slick script, which was awarded an Oscar, lacks genuine insight into the characters; Paul C. Vogel also earned a statuette for his cinematography. Also shown in computer-colored version.

Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban and George Murphy star in this remarkable war film, nominated for six Oscars(R) (including Best Picture) about courageous American G.I.s caught up in... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Thorpe. Van Johnson, June Allyson, Gloria DeHaven, Jose Iturbi, Jimmy Durante, Lena Horne, Donald Meek, Virginia O'Brien, Gracie Allen, Harry James and Xavier Cugat orchestras. Singing sisters Allyson and DeHaven operate a canteen for GIs, and become romantically linked with sailor-with-a-secret Johnson. Breezy entertainment, with many fine musical numbers (from Gracie Allen playing the piano to Lena Horne singing "Paper Doll''). Watch for Ava Gardner as a dancing showgirl and in the dream sequence.

A romance where one sister falls in love with a World War II sailor but the sailor finds himself in love with the other sister instead. more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Roy Rowland. Van Johnson, Thomas Mitchell, Janet Leigh, Marshall Thompson, Selena Royle, Charles Dingle, Dean Stockwell, Guy Kibbee, Jim Davis. Heartfelt post-Civil War tale, set in a Missouri farm community whose residents are still fighting the war. Farmer Mitchell casts suspicious eye on charming stranger Johnson, who is courting his daughter (Leigh, in her film debut). Fascinating, humanist script by soon-to-be-blacklisted Lester Cole (based on a story by MacKinlay Kantor).

D: Gottfried Reinhardt. Van Johnson, Dorothy McGuire, Louis Calhern, Ray Collins, Ruth Roman.

Memorable theme by Bronislau Kaper (which was originally used in A LIFE OF HER OWN).

When six of Roland Levy's friends accept an invitation to dine on his private island they know it will be an extraordinary evening. more
