Valley Of Decision, The (1945) Howl

Impoverished daughter takes a job working for the owners of the steel mill that controls the town and whom father blames for his employment injury. Money is money, a job is an opportunity. Following Greer Garson bumbling and excelling at her job was cute, funny and "I'm proud of her." When the giant Peck acknowledges her, the passion begins and the charisma rockets. The closer the maid gets to her new family the farther away she gets from hers. I expected the romance to be histrionic but it was pensive and borrowed from real life. Unfortunately, love is constantly interrupted by employment strikes, demands, shutdowns and the threat of violence. Jessica Tandy was delicious as the runner-up who pecks at the competition 'til the bitter end. The surprises were eventful, the director kept pushing it and the conclusion is what it needed. 24-Oct-2020

Nobody Lives Forever (1946) Woof

Gangster serving time in the army is released into a scam that involves sucker punching a widow for her money. The gangsters are divided by type but united by greed. The old timer that you can trust but has run out of gimmicks, the roughneck always by your side until the tide changes, there are tramp gangsters whose limitations and penchant for violence grants them misery, the stud with athletic edges that make the girls swoon is unmatched and most wanted and the moles destruct what the competition makes worthwhile. Garfield is thug sophistication, smarts with an aggressive charm and a daddy with a heart of gold that's going to generate much trouble. It isn't art but its tipping its hat to it. Faye Emerson scratches louder than Geraldine Fitzgerald's screams and "Mr. Gladys Kravitz" was funny. 11-Oct-2020

Winter Meeting (1948) Arf

Hulkean war hero has a hard time relinquishing his power to serve God but Bette's there to help. There are reflective moments on mental health when the characters spill and expound. Bette gives the character her established perfection and James Davis is the right giant to pound the rigidity out of her but it defined without comprehensive deduction. 09-Dec-2019

Picture of Dorian Gray, The (1941) Arf

George Sanders spends the first act posing as if the film centered around him and philosophizing harshly on life matters. Angela Lansbury's Sibyl Vane is miscast and depleted of sensuality. Hurd Hatfield is agamous and ambiguous with no hunt for the debaucheries the writers keep mentioning he's into. The portrait and the narration had the only life the film required. 03-Nov-2019

Take Me Out To The Ball Game (1949) Arf

The music is basic, the costumes adorn and the script pushes feminine empowerment forward. The film would supply very little if it weren't for the entertainment value of its three pro athletes (Sinatra, Williams and Kelly.) 02-May-2019

Bachelor And The Bobby Soxer, The (1947) Woof

It asks what to do when a teen crushes on daddy squish but it never answers it. It entertains with ideas and Temple, Loy and esp. Grant keep us marveling. 05-Apr-2019

Feminine Touch, The (1941) Arf

Sex war rom com served by master wits (Don Ameche, Rosalind Russell, Van Heflin and Kay Francis.) Ameche and Rosalind defy lack of chemistry but Heflin and Francis uplift the back end. The logic stipulates that men classify a woman's worth by the amount of selected howlers sniffing at her door. All the woman wants is for her man to grow a pair and punch the howlers sniffing at her door. 06-Feb-2019

Holiday Affair (1949) Howl

A sober Christmas treatise made with no fuss.

It was a forward example.

The Christmas gift was an alpha. 25-Dec-2018

In This Our Life (1942) Woof

Respect for its black performers is admirable. The film is sudsy, gutsy and wild. Dennis Morgan emits vapors, Olivia perfects saccharine and even though there is too much evil in Bette, she still stands tall. 14-Jun-2018

Johnny Eager (1941) Howl

Robert Taylor plays a hood hellbent on street cred by subjugating his past and flaunting his fortitude. Lana is an unappreciated diamond whose badboy fangirl status welcomes tragedy and Van Heflin is a dulcet toned philosopher lackey who farts predictions of everyone with words so striking they agitate the heart.

It's gangster mature that celebrates the completion of man when he embraces his soul.

Taylor hunts and kills for the egg, Lana boils and serves the egg and Heflin eats it. 20-Dec-2017

Stormy Weather (1943) Woof

It skimps on storyline and it thins in characterization. What is showcased is neglected and diverse talent that tornadoes toward climactic showstoppers invigorated by Lena and stormed by Bill Robinson and Cab Calloway.

If it had been filmed in color it would have been candied joy. 14-Nov-2017

Little Foxes, The (1941) Howl

Atmospheric, rigorous and contentious. Bette is shatterproof porcelain doll perfection, commandeering the self-destructive avarice of southern family dysfunction. It becomes art when Wyler treats us to a camera hold on Ms. Davis as her husband struggles and she ponders without a blink. Brava.

Ethnicity is represented as it existed in history and the limitations of its time. You have to understand that even though they are not the story, they have a voice because real black actors put a soul to it and they opened the doors for the equality we lost. I'd rather appreciate their contribution than erase them from history. 29-Aug-2017

Deception (1946) Woof

Musician love triangle in which a lover was allowed to choke a woman for fibbing whilst the other drove her to madness. What's left for Bette to do is to unleash, connive and lacerate to secure love and subsist. There are origin whiffs of Bette's signature beats and enunciations and as much as the men in her life warrant it, we deserve her more. 07-Jun-2017
