D: Robert Milton. Ann Harding, Laurence Olivier, Irving Pichel, ZaSu Pitts, Juliette Compton, Irene Purcell, Don Alvarado, Florence Lake, Edgar Kennedy, Ethel Griffies. Acting uplifts cliched tale of Harding marrying charming but egocentric Olivier, a struggling writer. Film debut of child actress Bonita Granville.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Robert Z. Leonard. Greer Garson, Laurence Olivier, Edna May Oliver, Edmund Gwenn, Mary Boland, Maureen O'Sullivan, Karen Morley, Melville Cooper, E. E. Clive, Ann Rutherford, Marsha Hunt. Outstanding adaptation of Jane Austen's novel about five husband-hunting sisters in 19th- century England. Excellent cast, fine period flavor in classic comedy of manners; Aldous Huxley was one of the screenwriters. Cedric Gibbons and Paul Groesse's art direction deservedly earned an Oscar.

Excellent screen adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 novel about a provincial family's struggles to marry off five daughters in 19th century England. Academy Award Nominations: Best... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Laurence Olivier. Marilyn Monroe, Laurence Olivier, Sybil Thorndike, Jeremy Spenser, Richard Wattis. Thoughtful but slow-moving comedy of saucy American showgirl Monroe being romanced by Prince Regent of Carpathia (Olivier) during the 1911 coronation of George V. Filmed in England, with delightful performances by Monroe and Olivier. Script by Terence Rattigan from his play The Sleeping Prince.

Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier whip up a romantic souffle as lovers, contending politics, petty jealousies and palace intrigues in war-shadowed Europe. Year: 1957 Director:... more

Olivier and Leigh--both breathtakingly beautiful--enact ill-fated historical romance of Lord Admiral Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton in American- made film intended to spur pro-British feelings. P.S.: It was Winston Churchill's favorite movie. Aka LADY HAMILTON.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Tony Richardson. Laurence Olivier, Brenda De Banzie, Roger Livesey, Joan Plowright, Daniel Massey, Alan Bates, Shirley Anne Field, Albert Finney, Thora Hird. Seedy vaudevillian (Olivier, recreating his stage role) ruins everyone's life and won't catch on. Film captures flavor of chintzy seaside resort, complementing Olivier's brilliance as egotistical song-and-dance man. Coscripted by John Osborne, from his play. Film debuts of Bates and Finney. Olivier and Plowright married the following year. Remade as a 1975 TVM starring Jack Lemmon.

Superb Western saga of Wayne's relentless search for niece (Wood) kidnapped by Indians, spanning many years. Color, scenery, photography all splendid, with moving, insightful Frank Nugent script to match (based on Alan LeMay's novel). And who could ever forget that final shot? Remade and imitated many times since (CARAVANS, WINTERHAWK, GRAYEAGLE, etc.).

Almost complete rewrite of the 1940 Broadway show based on John O'Hara's short stories, but entertaining just the same, with a great Rodgers and Hart score including "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered'' (with sanitized lyrics), "The Lady Is a Tramp.''

Lavish musical remake of AH, WILDERNESS! with Rooney (who played the younger brother in 1935) as the young man coming of age. Extremely good- looking film, with exquisite use of Technicolor, but dramatically unexceptional--and not nearly as good as the earlier film. This version was made in 1946.

D: Jack Arnold. John Agar, Mara Corday, Leo G. Carroll, Nestor Paiva, Ross Elliott, Eddie Parker.

One of the best giant-insect films, with fast pacing, convincing special effects, and interesting subplot detailing formula's effect on humans. That's Clint Eastwood as the jet squadron leader in final sequence.

Enjoyable Corman cheapie about cosmetics magnate Cabot, fearful of aging, using royal jelly from wasps to become young and beautiful. She also periodically turns into a wasp-monster that must kill. Minor camp classic; an unauthorized semi-remake, EVIL SPAWN, was made for video in 1987. Remade for TV in 1996.

D: Edgar Selwyn. Diana Wynyard, Lewis Stone, Phillips Holmes, May Robson, Ruth Selwyn, Robert Young, Hedda Hopper. Top-notch drama in which nurse Wynyard falls for ill-fated flyer Young during WW1 and becomes pregnant; the scenario eventually jumps ahead to 1940, with the world on the brink of a new Great War. This powder keg of a film is fascinating on many levels, particularly as it looks into the "future'' and uncannily depicts the world at war and the mainstream popularity of television.

Biography of Frank "Spig'' Wead, pioneer WW1 aviator who later turned to screenwriting (including AIR MAIL and THEY WERE EXPENDABLE for Ford) after an accident; first half is slapstick comedy, with no sense of period detail, then abruptly changes to drama for balance of film. Very mixed bag; film buffs will have fun watching Bond play "John Dodge,'' spoofing director Ford.

D: Arnold Laven. Paul Newman, Wendell Corey, Walter Pidgeon, Edmond O'Brien, Anne Francis, Lee Marvin, Cloris Leachman. Newman is pensively convincing as Korean War veteran--brainwashed as a POW--now on trial for treason, with Pidgeon as his overbearing father and Francis his friend. Slick production adapted from Rod Serling teleplay. Robert Blake, Dean Jones, and Rod Taylor have small roles.

Wounded and weakened in Korean prison camps, GIs descend from the plane that returned them to U.S. soil. It is a time of tearful family reunions. A time of uncertainty about how to... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Mervyn LeRoy. Andy Griffith, Myron McCormick, Nick Adams, Murray Hamilton, Don Knotts. Funny military comedy based on Ira Levin's Broadway play (which got its start as a 1955 U.S. Steel Hour TV play). Griffith and McCormick repeat roles as hayseed inducted into service and his harried sergeant. Griffith's best comedy, with good support from Adams, and, in a small role as a noncommissioned officer, Knotts. Script by John Lee Mahin. Followed years later by a TV series.

Will Stockdale (Andy Griffith) is a garrulous, innocent hillbilly serving in the Air Force. Crotchety Sergeant King (Myron McCormick) takes an instant dislike to Will and determines... more

D: John Ford, Mervyn LeRoy. Henry Fonda, James Cagney, William Powell, Jack Lemmon, Betsy Palmer, Ward Bond, Nick Adams, Philip Carey, Harry Carey, Jr., Ken Curtis, Martin Milner, Jack Pennick, Perry Lopez, Pat Wayne. Superb comedy-drama with Fonda recreating his favorite stage role as restless officer on WW2 cargo ship who yearns for combat action but has to contend with an irascible and eccentric captain (Cagney) instead. Fonda, Cagney, Powell (in his last screen appearance) as a philosophical doctor, and Lemmon (in an Oscar-winning performance) as the irrepressible Ensign Pulver, are all terrific. Thomas Heggen and Joshua Logan's Broadway hit was adapted for film by Logan and Frank Nugent. LeRoy replaced Ford as director sometime during production... but it certainly doesn't show. Sequel: ENSIGN PULVER. CinemaScope.

The crew of a World War II cargo ship comes to rely on the genial Mister Roberts to mediate the tantrums of an unqualified captain. Director John Ford, Mervyn LeRoy Star Henry Fonda,... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Fred Newmeyer, Gordon Douglas. George "Spanky'' McFarland, Billie "Buckwheat'' Thomas, Carl "Alfalfa'' Switzer, Phillips Holmes, Ralph Morgan, Irving Pichel, Rosina Lawrence, Louise Beavers. Sluggish Civil War story, balancing kiddie antics against an adult romance, was intended to showcase three Our Gang stars in a feature-film format; it's easy to see why there wasn't an encore. Buckwheat's role as a slave in search of a master may displease contemporary audiences.

The Our Gang comedies accounted for more films than any other series, totaling 221 between 1922 and 1944. But just one of those outings provided big roles for America's favorite... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Jules Dassin. Conrad Veidt, Anne Ayars, Dorothy Tree, Frank Reicher, Sidney Blackmer, Martin Kosleck, Marc Lawrence, William Tannen. Veidt plays twin brothers: one a peaceful American; the other a Nazi official. When the latter blackmails the former into spying, the good Veidt kills the bad Veidt and impersonates him. Slow-moving, rather arid tale that could have been much better. Dassin's first feature; good photography by Harry Neanderthal Man, The (1953) 78m. *1/2 D: E. A. Dupont. Robert Shayne, Richard Crane, Doris Merrick, Joy Terry. Shayne turns a tiger into a sabertooth and himself into a murderous caveman in this below- par '50s entry. Colorless and cheap; director Dupont was a long way from his German classic VARIETY.

D: Alfred Hitchcock. Robert Cummings, Priscilla Lane, Norman Lloyd, Otto Kruger, Alan Baxter, Alma Kruger, Dorothy Peterson, Vaughan Glaser. Extremely offbeat wartime Hitchcock yarn about a munitions worker who's falsely accused of sabotage and forced to take it on the lam. Full of quirky touches, unusual supporting characters, and some outstanding set pieces, including famous Statue of Liberty finale... though actual story resolution is unfortunately abrupt. Screenplay by Peter Viertel, Joan Harrison, and Dorothy Parker.
