Lots of layers
- el debbo
Much more forthright than The Animal Kingdom, which I found tremulous. This has an excellent script if you dig in and listen, with loads of dry wit. Jack Carson really shines in his supporting role (I would love to have such a friend) as does Reggie Gardner...ever so dissipated. Sheridan and Morgan have some very intelligent lines...I expect to find more layers on my second viewing. It was so refreshing to find a vintage movie that acknowledges a deep and abiding friendship between man and woman, even if love doesn't work out, they miss their kindred-spirit companionship. Very glad I found this hidden gem.
A poor remake of the stellar 1932 film Animal Kingdom (starring Ann Harding and Leslie Howard) based on the play by Philip Barry. (Barry also wrote the play Philadelphia Story as a vehicle for Katherine Hepburn.) The studio kept the names of the original charactors, but clumsily updated the script placing the story at the beginning of WWII. Striping away the brave, intellegent, complex inner lives and motivations of these people as they acknowledge that they are in fact "all members of the animal kingdom," the screenwrites reduce the charactors and plot with a glib formulaic superficiality. To see the story as it was written, find the DVD of the great pre-code film "Animal Kingdom".

Regret that i fell asleep and missed the denouement. Difficult to discern the motives of the characters (e.g., why Cecelia is considered a gold digger) without seeing the synopsis. As I think about that comment, I feel that perhaps people familiar with this comedy format would pick it up right away. Still, I did follow the action despite having trouble telling the female leads apart (e.g., they are both beautiful and both had these unusual hair styles with very long hair braided up on top of their heads). Choosing between Alexis Smith and Ann Sheridan is a problem we all (men) should face. Although a little confusing, this movie was engaging and fun.
one more tomorrow

Largely forgettable melodrama featuring cardboard characters and an utterly predictable ending. Visually forgettable as well, with cheesy sets and uninspired cinematography. About the only worthwhile parts are some good comic banter between Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson and the interesting time capsule feel of 1946, that weird year between the end of WW2 and the start of the Cold War, when you could write for a "liberal" (i.e. left leaning) magazine without your patriotism being called into question. A year or two later such "liberal" writers were being hauled before HUAC. Give it a C.
Absolutely the Greatest Movie !!!!!!!
