Bright Leaf (1950)
- James Higgins
This is not among my favorite classics. I love all the stars, Gary Cooper does a good job, but Lauren Bacall is an odd choice, she just doesn't fit with the early 1900's time period. Patricia neal does well also, and Jack Carson has one of his better roles from that time period. The costumes are lavish and inpressive, the art direction and score are both good, but I just found it overlong and a bit slow moving. There were times I was bored.
What a great movie with Gary Cooper,Patrica Neal and Lauren Bacall. Very surprised this has not been shown on Turner Classic. Same for Saratoga Trunk.
Still waiting for the DVD
I have been a fan of this film since I first saw it years ago on AMC late one night. Since then I have managed to get my hands on a 16mm print for projection, but I would prefer a good clean sharp DVD to add to my collection. Sure wish someone would hurry up and make this happen.
Wish I had it on DVD

I don't know why this great old movie isn't available...
Gary Cooper is not a good guy.
- Dick Tibbetts
It isn't often that you see Gary Cooper as a bad guy but in this film, he is superb. He returns to the town that ruined him and his family to seek revenge on those now in power. Two women, are seeking his affection, so it seems, from opposite sides of the tracks. He obtains money and the know how to start manufacturing cigarettes, a no-no in this part of tobacco country. What ensues is the crux of the film. This is a MUST SEE.
