John Lund deserves more than 1 star, surely
- Jene Byrnes
I enjoyed John Lund in "No Man of Her Own" with Barbara Stanwyck. While reviews of this film were tepid, I found it a solid melodrama: not as fantastic a situation as other convoluted plots of the era, and Stanwyck always gives a hard dose of realism, grit, and empathy to her roles. The pencil line playing John Lund's mustache was the most unconvincing part in the film, but Lund himself managed to generate some believable heat with Stanwyck. The scene where he dumps a body for her and, returning to the car, clinches Stanwyck in the back seat had me -oh my! Is he another Joseph Cotton? Does he have the range of Raines? No, but Lund seems a fine, working actor. Here, he is pretty enough for the romance, and manly enough for the ass kicking portions of the program. So, Mr Lund, please accept my 3 stars for "No Man of Her Own".
John Lund's First Film
- Wesley Satterfield
He appeared in the town as a much anticipated celebrity and became the love interest of the heroine. I was convinced that their unexpected love was mutual and genuine, and it's rather surprising that "back then" an affair resulting in pregnancy could be presented. Then we learn that he dies, only to return 25 years later as his son. Perhaps the film is corny and far fetched, but boy is it moving. In a subsequent century where the "affair" would be choreographed in lurid color it is a pleasure to look back on kinder gentler times when feeling mattered. John Lund was excellent in his first film. Or so I believe.
