  • Daughters Courageous (1939)

    Although this is often looked upon as a sequel to Four Daughters, it is not. Four Daughters was an unexpected success for Warner Brothers but they had a problem. It was the film that made John Garfield a household name, and he was killed off in that movie. So Warners, anxious to capitalize of the success of that film and John Garfield, they took the same cast and just made another movie and changing the characters names. It was worth it, because the cast is terrific, especially Garfield. The basic story is Nancy Masters (Fay Bainter) is planning to marry Samuel Sloane (Donald Crisp). Suddenly, the man she married twenty years before and who abandoned her 5 years later, (a terrific Claude Rains) has returned. He had been proclaimed dead by the courts. The story focuses on Nancy and her four daughters, (The Lane sisters: Priscilla, Rosemary and Lola, as well as Gale Page) reaction to the situation. Great support from May Robson, the score is wonderful and the production is top notch. Good story that is sensitively done.

  • Better than Four Daughters

    The reworking of the more-popular Four Daughters plot results in a superior film: in Daughter's Courageous, Claude Rains gets to be John Garfield's "partner in crime" which results in twice the fun. The Lane SIsters and a great ensemble cast with Micheal Curtiz directing --- PUT THIS ONE ON DVD PLEASE; I WILL BUY IT!

  • PUT MORE OF OLD MOVIES ON DVD!!!

    It's nice that TCM has its "voting" system to see which movies should be put on DVD, but how can people vote on movies they've not seen?? Not only "Daughter's Courageous" but so many more should be put on DVD immediately! Such as "Farmer's Daughter", "White Banners", "Dulcy", "Anthony Adverse", "Bachelor Mother", Rachel & the Stranger", and many more! It is so frustrating not to be able to have these old movies on DVD when there are so many awful ones already on DVD. I wonder how THEY got on DVD? No one voted for them! I hope that TCM will pressure these movie companies to release many more of these great old movies on DVD!

  • Claude Rains.... sigh!

    Claude Rains is so adorable in this film. What an actor!

  • Good old movie

    It has been many years since I saw this movie, but I still remember being affected by the charismatic Garfield and the lovely and sprightly Priscilla Lane. The movie works because it fiollows Hollywood logic, non-practical common sense. Everyone and everything is heightened, escpecially Garfield whose is a heroic loser (would never accept his behavior on a day-to-day basis but can accept it all on screen). Good fun.

  • I Heart John Garfield!

    I loved this movie, the acting is so good.Raines, Bainter, the Lane sisters, and Lynn, evern Robeson, all did wonderful jobs. Should be on DVD all this movies should be. Today's movies stink to high heaven.
