One of the great movies…Wyler is a true, underrated genius

8 years ago


The ending is so satisfying. All three lead actors (including the father) did so superbly you cant help but be impressed.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film. As a guy I'm a bit ashamed to admit I was almost as smitten with Morris as Catherine was. Clift played his role perfectly and that's what much of the story was reliant on.

I disagree with a previous poster who suggested de Havilland ill-fit for the part. In the pantheon of leading ladies of the forties, she was (and I don't mean to sound mean) arguably as homely as any. But perhaps that just speaks to the level of all actresses at the time. Anyway, if you thought she was miscast, imagine Jessica Chastain in the role, which she will be assuming on Broadway quite soon.

Regardless, I recommend!!!
