WILD IS THE WIND IS AN OH,WOW MOVIE!!!
- GERRY WHITEHEAD
I first saw "Wild Is The Wind"back in the mid-70's on KCOP T.V.,Channel 13 from Los Angeles.I can't but help but agree with the other people that have written reviews for this movie.Superb acting by the entire cast(ANTHONY QUINN,ANNA MAGNANI,DOLORES HART,ANTHONY FRANSISCO,ETC.!!!)I too wish T.C.M.would release this movie on DVD.Also,if T.C.M.ever decided to have the movie shown nationally on the BIG screen,I would be the FIRST in line to see it on the sliver screen too,it's THAT GOOD of a movie!!!!The drama tears your heart out(Quinn marries Maganani,the sister of his dead wife,and brings her back from Italy to live on a cattle ranch in Nevada.)The movie(being in black-and-white)has a sort of "film noir"feel to it,even though it was filmed in the late (instead of early)50's.Even a little nostalgic,for those of us who grew up in the 1950's(dig those station wagons in this movie)!And,of course,I've always loved the Johnny Mathis theme of this movie,which was also a Top 40 hit in early 1958.As that other reviewer said,the acting is SO good in this movie,you don't feel like the actors in this movie are acting,but LIVING out their lives!I can't say enough good things about this classic movie!Please,T.C.M.schedule this movie soon,and PLEASE,PLEASE,release "Wild Is The Wind "on DVD REAL SOON!

Maltin as usual is the turgid one. Wildly underrated, Anna Magnaniis the force of nature that you cannot take your eyes off of. She'sjust fabulous in ANY movie. Anthony Quinn is good, but Ms. Magnaniis worth the price of admission! Maybe not George Cukor's best, butin his hands, it's well done. Loved it!
Wild Is The Wind
I watched this movie as a teenager and fell in love with it.
simply the best

I first saw this movie as a girl. I have a copy on DVD which is not as clear as I would like. It was probably transferred from VHS. I love everything about this film. The music is hypnotic! The raw emotions depicted are the stuff of true life. The choice of actors were #1 and at the top of their game. I love, love , love this film. I hope this film will be released on DVD very soon.
Glad I have a tape
Leonard Maltin is a cretin. The spoiled reviewers have lost the ability to see the soul expressed in films like Wild is the Wind. I am glad I taped it on old VHS when it was shown several years ago.
Wild is the Wind
One cannot simply watch Wild is the Wind. We are drawn into the lives of each character. We become those characters and when it's reached its conclusion we take awhile in shedding those characters. Wild is the Wind is that engrossing and is one film we can truly call unforgettable; not only the magnificent portrayals of the cast, which is beyond description, but the entire story from beginning to end is unlike any other I've ever viewed in its true to life depiction of lifes harshness as well as sweetness. I've been trying to locate a copy of this film for many years and wish someone would release it to the public again. It's still a part of me.
I saw this movie with my Mother when I was a girl. We used to watch movies together on Fridays when she got home from work. I would love to see this movie again. I remember it was excellent.

- Irene Laboy
Caught this great classic a few days ago and loved it. I first saw this movie when I was a young girl and loved it then. A movie I have never forgotton, because it was so true to life, wonderful actors (Mangiani, Quinn and Franciosa) and great scenes. Please keep showing it and would love to see it availible in DVD. Thanks TCM for providing the chance to see this wonderful classic.
- tony baksa
I was truly amazed at this rarely shown and for me, never seen film. I, of course, was familiar with the haunting title song. Aside from some of the most engaging acting you will ever see, this movie has some amazing - there's that word again - but its true, it has amazing nature footage with horses and sheep that just doesn't look rehearsed. I might say that about the actors. I don't mean they are under rehearsed. They, like the animals, are as natural as real life. In fact, I would sum up by saying, watching this movie is like watching real people live their lives.

Acting at it's very best. Highly emotional, story true to life, required excellent acting to make this a believable story.
Wild Is The Wind
I've always loved this movie -- including the hauntingly beautiful title song. There's some passionate performances in this film -- outstanding actors!However, it's usually aired too late at night or very early morning for Pacific time residents. I would love to see this film more often and during prime time for the west coast viewers. Also, will you ever be adding this title to your home video library?Keep up the good work -- I love, love, love your station, and thank you for keeping these films alive!

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YEARS TO SEE THIS MOVIE AGAIN. TCM BROADCAST IT ON MARCH 9, 2008 AND I JUST HAPPENED TO CATCH THE VERY END OF IT.HOW VERY DISAPPOINTED I WAS TO HAVE MISSED IT!! I HOPE YOU WILL RUN THIS GREAT MOVIE AGAIN SOON, PREFERABLY IN PRIME TIME DURING YOUR 8PM EST SLOT.

I'm only 40, but my mom has told me about this movie. She loves Anna Magnani and Anthony Quinn. She has a great admiration for supporting actors such as Joseph Calleia and Lili Valenty.. I saw it again just this morning on TCM..WOW!!! My mom was right. This is a very dramatic and very REAL movie drama. They just don't make them like that anymore! Please put this movie on DVD!! You can't shelve this one, I want everyyone to see how great movies and great actors really are. Our children, grandchildren and their own, need to see quality movies. Don't close the door on this one, please put it on DVD.Thank you.
My favorite romantic old movie
- Maria Rich
I have always loved and admired Anna Magnani. She was a magnificent actress. She is wonderful in everything she has done. Of course, Anthony Quinn and Tony Franciosa were as gorgeous as can be. I really want this movie on DVD so I can watch it anytime I want to see a good drama. I remember seeing this movie when I was only 15 years old on television. I was mezmerized by it...by Johnny Mathis singing the theme song...Everything about it.Please put it out on DVD!!! This is a truly great movie, worthy of a place in cinema history. So many of our children and grandchildren won't get the chance to see truly good and quality movies unless they are on DVD. There are too many wonderful actors in this movie, including the supporting roles.Please don't let this film be forgotten!
Great cast Great acting
- Ada Brauweiler
They don't make movies like they used to Real Drama in this one. You have to be Italian to enjoy this and the song and music tops it all. Hope you can retrieve this one. Thank you Ada Brauweiler
