  • A great unexpected performance.

    Gig Young received an oscar for his role as the tragic-sadistic mc, showman of the dance marathon. He most often played the good natured, wise cracking guy - as in many a Doris Day film. His performance here was like his own life at the time: an alcoholic has been. A must see movie for all Gig fans.

  • Depression Realism

    I first saw this movie when I was only 8 years old and it was the first film I ever saw that lingered with me for days later. I hesitate to call it "Entertainment" because it accurately portrays a dance marathon during the depression and how far the different characters will go to win. Most are driven by poverty or desperate circumstances and quitting is not an option. It shows how something "pretty" on the surface (ie. dance marathon) can actually be very horrible underneath the casual view. A must see at least once. I believe it is Jane Fonda's best performance and that says a lot. I hope to see it on TCM soon. Especially because it also demonstrates the talents of Sydney Pollack. A classic of the gritty realism of life and ranks up there with "the Grapes of Wrath" for depicting a historical time and place.
