  • a forgotten beauty.

    A shame that by far the most beautiful and talented actress of the 30s should have been given a series of dull parts in dull movies.No wonder she turned her back on the screen for the stage. She would have made a good Scarlet in Gone With the Wind,for which she was in the running,but her age probably counted against her(then 30).But if you compare her best photos in her prime( around 1935) with the of the likes of Lamarr ,Leigh and her other contempories there really isn't a contest as to who was the 'fairest of them all'.

    I've seen her in The Shop Around the Corner, and tonight in Three Comrades. She didn't need a forceful character to capture your attention, unlike so many other Hollywood actresses; and that's not simply a reference to her beauty. Her performances should be more widely known.

  • Too young and too few

    Marvelous actress. In an era of fine actresses she had it all: looks, a sense of comic timing, dramatic presence, and an ability to work with her co-stars in ensemble films. She is at her best in Mortal Storm and The Shop Around the corner. Too bad she was not in more films and that her personal life was sad and troubled. But she left us several fine films.

    A remarkable actress from the golden age of motion pictures. Margaret Sullavan was extremely talented and she had that unforgettable voice that was perfect for those ethereal roles that she was cast in. She epitomized charm and was one of Alfred Hitchcock's favorite actresses.

    I inadvertently gave Sullavan low ratings rather than the "10" ratings in my haste to submit a review of this formidable talent. My error.

    If anyone has seen LITTLE MAN, WHAT NOW?, then it is ultimately apparent that Sullavan was an actress of consummate range. Like many film buff friends, I, too, fell for her voice when I first encountered her films. Since then, I have come to be in awe of the manner in which she could radiate a complete character through the most subtle use of vocal coloration, eye movements, head tilting. But my words fall short of the style that Sullavan commanded. She must be experienced in the films that she graced. Warner Brothers marketing personnel: why is at least THREE COMRADES not on DVD?? THE SHINING HOUR would be a "safe" DVD release since Joan Crawford is also in the film.
