  • a classic Borzage

    A true work of genius. I own the novel from which this film is based and it follows it word for word.The camera work, the music and the cast are all first rate.I finally understand why Gail Russell has become such an icon.She is astonishingly beautiful and her performance in this is so real and touching.A tragedy we lost her at such a young age. MOONRISE needs a dvd release. It was on Video at one time but that was too long ago. This film needs to reach a wide audience. I heard from a friend that it is a staple at the London National Film Theatre.

  • This movie was a howler.

    I thought this movie was a howler. All through the movie I kept up this running commentary, laughing to myself. How can this woman get involved with this guy? Then, she falls for him in one kiss, no explanation. Who needs this loser? If he said Gillie one more time I was going to kill somebody. I bet the name Gillie appears in that script a thousand times. I don't fault the actors, just the stupid script. Every time they kept going back to the "wise old darkie" I started laughing. It was such a profoundly stereotypical part. Even though he was a "wise old educated darkie" it was still the same part. When the dogs started after Dane I kept thinking: You go girl get him for kicking you. I just had no sympathy for the main character at all. I forgot Barrymore was even in the movie before she appeared in that one scene.

  • Six minutes for Ethel Barrymore

    • Jarrod McDonald
    • 2/4/10

    I'm an Ethel Barrymore fan, so I was a little disheartened that she only appears at the end of the film with about six minutes of screen time. Nonetheless, the story is well told, and Dane Clark does a marvelous job as Barrymore's fugitive grandson. But I think this story would've been better had it been about a young black man whose father had been lynched years earlier. If remade today, then the story could very easily apply to migrant Mexican laborers who are often denied justice due to illegal status and community suspicion.

  • A Great Borzage classic with superb cast.

    One of Gail Russell's finest hours. Her performances got better and better and she became more beautiful in the late 40's
