I watched "Lady for a Day" today. Frank Capra was for a generation in the 30s and 40s what Steven Spielberg was for a generation in the mid-70s to mid-90s: The Best. Two men who had the human touch like no other directors, and were second to none at their craft. "Lady for a Day" is the rare film that is genuinely enjoyable. A big city fairy tale, it gives us what we want, but with just enough realism, like all the great Capra "corn." I loved the many great one-liners, like when the butler ends a conversation with "I promise not to be depressed." The whole scene, and the butler's delivery, are perfect. How the "judge" sets up a game of billiards with the Count is done very well, too. I can also appreciate why Warren was labeled the king of pre-code (movies). I enjoyed him in "Skyscraper Souls" and he made many other movies in Hollywood's Golden Era. Odd that he has been forgotten.
Lady for a Day is a winner!
This stunning Frank Capra film is a gem that should be shown on Mother's Day! May Robson as Apple Annie, a mother who goes all out for her daughter's happiness, is a sheer delight. The film is a tearjerker mixed with much humor. Can we please see a Capra 'feel good' film like this about a mother's heartache along with great joy instead of Mildred Pierce just for a change?
Lady for a Day
I love this movie! My heart goes out to the character Apple Annie. Just when she thought she had nothing...she realized she had people who really cared which meant more than anything in the world. People overlooked class ranking to help Apple Annie which was was an important factor in society during the time period. May Robson's portrayal of Apple Annie is magnificent and so real. Her performace outshines Bette Davis' role as the same character in "A Pocket Full of Miracles." This movie is a must see. Make some popcorn and cozy on your couch for a night of nastalgia.
Three Cheers for Apples!!!
God Bless all of the "Apple" ladies, everywhere! That goes for this and the one which followed starring Bette Davis. A heart warming movie of the highest caliber! An atypical rags to riches story. The "riches" in this tale can be found, though not in monetary worth, deep down in the recesses of the human heart. Riches, which can't be acquired but must be earned, as is the case with honest and lasting friendship. Frank Capra, an American icon in the film industry, the paradigm of directorial excellence. This is one GREAT FILM, don't miss it!
Lady For A Day
Robson stars, thanks to Runyon, Capra-Riskin and the great Warren William.
