Why and When?
- Lizabeth B Weber
Why doesn't TCM have The Member of the Wedding in its repertoire? I buy so many TCM and Movies Unlimited DVDs. I have a whole library of greats except this one. I love this movie. When will TCM or Movies Unlimited sell this film? It is classic. I can't even find a place online to watch it without paying or downloading an app. I don't want to download, I want to see it online or buy it.
Ethel Waters Blew. Me. Away.
AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, THE MOVIE MADE NO SENSE. AND I DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY IT ENDED...
"My 2 cents"
- Julianne Stark
I've seen "Member of the Wedding" before and I loved it. Watching it again today, I really love the uncontainable and raw energy portrayed so well by Julie Harris' in the role as Frankie. And Ms. Waters performance has so much passion and a strength that shines through. Emotional, real, and just a fabulous film! I wonder if someone has or will do this on broadway again, and what actors could fill their shoes? Food for thought. Thank you TCM for being here for us to see all the wonderful films of the past.
The Member of the Wedding
- Ann jasper
One of the most memorable films I have ever seen, and that was about fifty years ago. Now I want to buy it on DVD for each of my five children and 12 grandchildren, as well as friends. Please someone, make this possible. Put it on DVD
Member of the Wedding -- early version
This is one of the best things ever put on film -- why oh why is this not available to buy on dvd????!!!!
Loved this movie! Read the book,and the film is very faithful to it. It express all the emotions a young teenage girl goes through at !3yrs old (amazing that Julie Harris was 25 at the time!) Ethel Waters shines,and Brandon De Wilde breaks your heart...A cinematic treasure!!
I think this is one of the great films of all times, not only in the acting and the interplay between the characters, but for its insightful script and its depiction of societal issues of that period that were far more complex than is often depicted. PLEASE air this film again soon.
A Member of Something Great
- Jarrod McDonald
I've seen the first part of this film so many times, but I never made it to the end of it till today. I'm glad I finally took the time and had the patience to sit through it. The actors are wonderful in it. The story is fairly basic, and it reflects the time in which it was made. But the themes (coming of age, loneliness, the fragility of life) are timeless. I especially love how the story has a neat, but not-so-tidy, resolution. We know these three spent an important portion of their lives together, but we also know it's over and they will never know each other again, except in memories. It's very poignant and gives the viewer plenty to ponder.
This film mesmerized me. The performances of both Ms. Harris and Ms. Waters are so intense I felt I was in the room with them. This film gives us an intimate look into the minds of a young girl and her black housekeeper, both of whom live in turmoil and suffer greatly from loneliness. Who, even in this day and age, can't relate to that? Excellent film.
on dvd a plus

this movie on dvd is important --- i see this movie along the same lines as to kill a mockingbird ,, a true learning experience ....
I would love to see this movie on the list of requests for DVD!
- Barry Phillips
An excellent play realized fully on the screen, with almost embarrassingly naked performances by Ms. Waters, Mr. de Wilde and startlingly so from Ms. Harris.
