Lumbering adaptation has a great supporting cast and a variable performance by March in the lead. Holds your interest since there is always some new potential calamity just over the horizon but it goes on far too long.

Not a great movie, but most of the story is pretty interesting, and some of the scenes are really exciting. What I hated about this movie was how long it was, and slow too. Overall pretty good, but it could be better.

A very difficult film to track down but it is totally worth finding. An adventure as only one of the older cinema classics could deliver.

I absolutely DESPISE the plot, theme and conclusion of this film based on the book. A talented cast and beautiful costumes can only do so much.

Generally forgettable movie for which follows the adventures of the title character (Fredric March), who gets involved with many characters during both his childhood and as an adult. He hops from job to during a ten-year period and eventually fall in love a head cook's wife (Olivia de Havilland). Most people would regard this as one of the worst movies to be nominated for Best Picture. It is not very memorable, but it has nice costumes and peculiar characters that bring it along through its 139 minute running time. Other than that, however, not much else in the offering. Even Claude Rains is not that great. Again, I say it for this movie as well, mediocre at best.

(1936) Anthony Adverse

A little arbitruary but well made DRAMA and ADVENTURE film about during the times of swashbuckling starring the two- time Oscar winner Frederich March. An AVENTURE and DRAMA film about sacrifice, nobility and honor. This film has more drama than physical action.

Great and one of the most realistic (real life )in terms of a black and white film I had ever seen.

3.5 out of 4
