LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank McDonald. Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Winifred Shaw, Craig Reynolds, Addison Richards, Charlotte Winters, Jane Wyman. First of nine Torchy Blane films sets the pace and tone for the rest, with Farrell and MacLane amusing as the acerbic reporter and her irascible cop boyfriend working together on a murder case.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank McDonald. Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Gordon Oliver, Hugh O'Connell, Marcia Ralston, Tom Kennedy, Harry Davenport. Episode two in the Torchy Blane reporter series, serving mainly as a showcase for the wisecracking charms of Farrell as she takes to the air in pursuit of killers.

D: Frank McDonald. Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Anne Nagel, Tom Kennedy, George E Stone, Natalie Moorhead, William Hopper. One of the better Torchy Blane entries, with sardonic crime reporter Farrell interrupting her wedding to cantankerous cop MacLane in order to probe the murder of a publicity-seeking actor.

D: Ray McCarey. Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Tom Kennedy, John Miljan, Frank Shannon, Joe Cunningham, Irving Bacon. Torchy digs up some dirt on corrupt politicians and you can guess the rest from the title. Pretty good series entry with some very snappy dialogue.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Curtis Bernhardt. Joan Crawford, Van Heflin, Raymond Massey, Geraldine Brooks, Stanley Ridges. Crawford gives fine performance in intelligent study of woman whose subtle mental problems lead to ruin. Heflin and Massey are the men in her life; Brooks, as Massey's daughter, is radiant in her film debut.

Directed by Curtis Bernhardt. Starring Joan Crawford, Griff Barnett, Geraldine Brooks. more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Leo McCarey. Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Richard Denning, Neva Patterson, Cathleen Nesbitt, Robert Q Lewis, Charles Watts, Fortunio Bonanova. Middling remake of McCarey's LOVE AFFAIR. Bubbling shipboard comedy in first half, overshadowed by draggy soap-opera cliches and unnecessary musical numbers in N.Y.C. finale. Vic Damone croons title tune on soundtrack. Film was to turn up decades later as a major plot device in 1993 hit SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE. Remade again as LOVE AFFAIR in 1994. CinemaScope.

Leo McCarey's lighthearted romance combines with tragedy to tell the tale of two lovers who long to be together but are engaged to others. Director Leo McCarey Star Cary Grant,... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: David Lean. Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard, Stanley Holloway, Cyril Raymond, Joyce Carey. Two ordinary strangers, both married, meet at a train station and find themselves drawn into a short but poignant romance. Intense and unforgettable, underscored by perfect use of Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto. Adapted by Noel Coward from his one-act play "Still Life" (from Tonight at Eight-thirty); screenplay by director Lean and Ronald Neame. A truly wonderful film. Remade as a TV movie in 1974 with Richard Burton and Sophia Loren.

After a chance meeting on a train platform, a married doctor (Trevor Howard) and a suburban housewife (Celia Johnson) begin a muted but passionate, and ultimately doomed, love... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Jean Negulesco. Joan Crawford, John Garfield, Oscar Levant, J. Carrol Naish, Craig Stevens, Tom D'Andrea, Peggy Knudsen, Paul Cavanagh. Ambitious violinist Garfield gets involved with wealthy, unstable patroness Crawford. No cardboard soap opera this; superb performances, handsome production, hilarious support from Levant, and a knockout finale. Perhaps Crawford's finest hour. Young Robert Blake plays Garfield as a child, and that's Isaac Stern's violin on the soundtrack. Filmed before in 1920.
