Very Romantic Great Production
I always look forward to this movie. It is so pretty and pleasurable. I can't believe Maltin only give it 2 1/2 stars. Love it.
Claude Rains was just perfect!
I fell in love with Claude Rains all over again after seeing this movie for the first time last week. Thank you, TCM for showing this gem. The tension mounted perfectly and enough drama to hold your attention. I flip flopped, just like she did in trying to decide who to choose. Perfect ending, perfectly paced. In today's hollywood, there would have been special effects and all kinds of stuff, but in this beautiful classic, there were expressions, embraces,and the perfect words. The day it comes out on DVD will be a happy day in my book!
Very enjoyable film
Was surprised this was written by H.G. Wells. Never knew he did this kind of work. Love Claude Rains. Glad to see it end the way it did.
I saw this movie this morning and it was just awesome!!! The acting was great and belivable. I think we can all say that somewhere in our lives we have had to follow our head over our heart. Being deeply in love with someone does not necessarily mean that they are the one for you. Please put this on DVD. Loved it. Was late for work looking at it. LOL!!
What profound questions!
- Leary Blaine
Yes, yes, the acting and directing are wonderful. (I especially love all the subtleties that are entirely missing from today's pictures.) What inspires me, however, are two things: First, oh, the questions this movie asks us to consider! Just who, exactly, is our ideal mate? Is the romantic love that makes us all crazy the same kind that produces successful, long-term relationships? Second, the character of Mary is a personality type we seldom see: one who is the opposite of "calculating" or conniving. Poor Mary can't figure out whether to follow her heart or her head, so she struggles with both. It's coming back 'round in Sept, and I plan to watch it again!
A must-see for Claude Rains fans
This was the first time I'd seen this film since I was in college, and it confirmed my memory of Claude Rains' performance, in my opinion the best work he ever put on film. His character has a distinct and very complicated inner life under his polished businessman's veneer. It's also a good, sophisticated piece of filmmaking and well played by Trevor Howard and Ann Todd. Here's my vote for home video!
The movie The Passionate Friends
- vicki long
This is a must see if you have not seen this older movie. It is really great. Trevor Howard and Claude Rains wonderful actors. I love the snow scene where they go up into the mountains to have a picnic and they ride the ski lift!!!! Wonderful hope it will come out on video!
