LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Vincent Sherman. John Garfield, Anne Shirley, Claude Rains, Lee Patrick, George Tobias, Roscoe Karns, Dennie Moore, Elisabeth Risdon. N.Y.C.-based story of poor, hardworking Shirley, her dreamer-boyfriend Garfield, and what happens when they marry. Rains steals film as Shirley's sacrificing father. Based on Maxwell Anderson play previously filmed in 1929 and (as MAYBE IT'S LOVE) in 1935.

John Garfield, Anne Shirley, Claude Rains. An adaptation of the original stage hit, this film follows a young couple, pushed into marriage, watching their childlike fantasies fall... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank Capra. Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward Arnold, Walter Brennan, Spring Byington, James Gleason, Gene Lockhart. Overlong but interesting social commentary, with naive Cooper hired to spearhead national goodwill drive benefitting corrupt politician Arnold. Wordy idealism can't bury good characterizations; usual Capra touches exulting populism. Virtually all existing prints (from reissue) run 123m. Also shown in computer-colored version.

A female newspaper reporter writes a final column, a phony story of a man who plans to jump off of City Hall on Christmas Eve, as a protest of the mistreatment of the common people... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Boleslawski. Chester Morris, Lewis Stone, Walter Brennan, Irene Hervey, Willard Robertson, Sidney Toler. Little-seen and underrated version of Peter B. Kyne's story (filmed twice before) about three bad guys who adopt a foundling in the desert. Beautifully shot and warmly acted. Retitled MIRACLE IN THE SAND.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Irving Rapper. Fredric March, Alexis Smith, Donald Crisp, Alan Hale, C Aubrey Smith, John Carradine, Percy Kilbride. This Hollywoodized story of Samuel Clemens' colorful life may not be great biography, but it's consistently entertaining--despite some biopic cliches. March is fine in title role. Filmed in 1942.

He was a riverboat pilot, reporter, penniless prospector, Civil War dropout, would-be entrepreneur, loving family man, world traveler, pomposity buster and raconteur. It turns out... more

D: Russell Rouse. Glenn Ford, Jeanne Crain, Broderick Crawford, Russ Tamblyn. Sincere Western with a moral. Ford is a peace-loving storekeeper trying to live down renown as gunslinger, but there's always someone waiting to challenge him. Tamblyn has an impressive solo dance feature. Also shown in computer-colored version.

Gunman George and his wife Dora are trying to live a peaceful life. But George's gunslinging ways are legendary - and attract the attention of other gunmen who feel up for a... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Mark Sandrich. Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds, Virginia Dale, Walter Abel, Louise Beavers. Entertaining musical built on paper-thin plot about a romantic triangle, and the establishment of a country inn that's open only on holidays. That's the cue for a raft of Irving Berlin holiday songs (there's even one for George Washington's birthday!) including the timeless Oscar-winner "White Christmas.'' Good fun, and snappier than partial remake WHITE CHRISTMAS. Bing's original Rhythm Boys partner, Harry Barris, plays the orchestra leader.

Two retiring show people star up a New England country inn with the unique and, one would think, self-defeating idea of being open only on national holidays; however, in this... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Keighley. Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan, Monty Woolley, Billie Burke, Jimmy Durante, Richard Travis, Grant Mitchell, Mary Wickes, Elizabeth Fraser, Reginald Gardiner. Acerbic radio commentator Woolley (recreating his Broadway role) is forced to stay with Burke's Midwestern family for the winter, driving them crazy with assorted wacky friends passing through. Delightful adaptation of George S. KaufmanMoss Hart play. Scripted by the Epstein brothers. Also shown in computer-colored version.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Leo McCarey. Charles Laughton, Mary Boland, Charlie Ruggles, ZaSu Pitts, Roland Young, Leila Hyams. Laughton is marvelous as butler won in poker game by uncouth but amiable westerner Ruggles and socially ambitious wife Boland; ZaSu is spinster he falls in love with. A completely winning movie. Harry Leon Wilson's story was filmed before in 1918 and 1923, then remade as FANCY PANTS.

Nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award(r), Ruggles of Red Gap stars Charles Laughton as a stuffy British butler, Marmaduke Ruggles, who is traded in a poker game from an English... more
