robert ryan has one of his best roles here and it's entertaining in a debauched southern gothic way but it's way too long

Sorry to say it, but this one was really bad. There are way too many sub plots that aren't well developed to begin with, and when we only get to follow each character for a short period of time, it becomes even less captivating. Sleeping pill.

Heavy and intense, but very well acted. Certainly not a cheery film. Well photographed. The score is quite good, Steamy with dialogue the same. Good southern atmosphere. It is hard to believe how controversial it was in it's time.

I worked my way back here finally. I've seen a mess of stuff in the last few months. Highlights include one of the British "Carry On" comedy series, "Carry On Dick", "Zoot Suit" the Latino musical which turned out to be killer stuff, "Juggernaut", a forgotten offshoot from the Disaster Movie era about bombs on an ocean liner that was excellent, the tricky Hitchcock thriller, "Rope" and last night a big pleasant surprise, "God's Little Acre".
All I knew about this movie was that it was one of those old "crazy hillbilly" stories but this one was first class all the way. Anthony Mann was the director, Elmer Bernstein did the score (and foreshadowed both his "Hallelujah Trail" and "Walk On The Wild Side" work) and Robert Ryan acted his ass off as the patriarch of the family. The supporting cast was a who's who of future TV stars, Tina Louise, Jack Lord, Vic Morrow, Buddy Hackett and Michael Landon as an albino (!). Even Aldo Ray showed up and gave a good performance.
