Fictionalized biography of George Gershwin and his fight to bring serious music to Broadway.

DirIrving Rapper CastRobert Alda , Joan Leslie , Alexis Smith .
141 min, , CC
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Irving Rapper. Robert Alda, Joan Leslie, Alexis Smith, Oscar Levant, Charles Coburn, Julie Bishop, Albert Basserman, Morris Carnovsky, Herbert Rudley, Rosemary DeCamp, Paul Whiteman, Hazel Scott. Hollywood biography of George Gershwin is largely pulp fiction, but comes off better than most other composer biopics, capturing Gershwin's enthusiasm for his work, and some of his inner conflicts. Highlight is virtually complete performance of title work.

D: Henry King. Tyrone Power, Maureen O'Hara, Laird Cregar, Thomas Mitchell, George Sanders, Anthony Quinn, George Zucco. Power is at his dashing best in this lively swashbuckler from the Rafael Sabatini novel about rival pirate gangs in the Caribbean. Sanders seems to be having fun cast against type as a scurrilous brigand. Enhanced by Alfred Newman's music and Leon Shamroy's Oscar-winning Technicolor cinematography.

Consistently clever, amusing little film with knave Quillan earning boxer Armstrong's eternal gratitude by (inadvertently) saving him from a going-over by gangster Harolde. That comes in handy when Quillan falls in love with the mobster's moll. Armstrong is very funny as the prizefighter who's always groping for big words, which are supplied by his perky girlfriend Rogers.

D: Howard Hawks. Joan Crawford, Gary Cooper, Robert Young, Franchot Tone, Roscoe Karns. Stilted William Faulkner story of WW1 romance and heroism; despite star- studded cast, not much. Faulkner co-wrote the screenplay. Torpedo attack scenes were directed by Richard Rosson.

D: Frank Borzage. Helen Hayes, Gary Cooper, Adolphe Menjou, Mary Philips, Jack LaRue, Blanche Frederici.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edward Dmytryk. Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift, Eva Marie Saint, Lee Marvin, Nigel Patrick, Rod Taylor, Agnes Moorehead, Walter Abel. Humongous MGM attempt to outdo GWTW, with Taylor as spoiled Civil War-era belle who discovers marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be. Solid acting and memorable Johnny Green score help compensate for rambling, over-long script; Clift was disfigured in near-fatal car accident during production, and his performance understandably suffers for it. Reissued on video in 1999 with 15m. additional footage from "Roadshow Version.'' MGM Camera 65.
