Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
A much underrated if not great film, Naughty Marietta features some particulary amusing supporting work by Harold Huber and Edward Brophy.
| Original Score: 4/4
Nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, this is the first of eight but not the best teaming of Eddie Nelson and Jeannette MacDonald.
| Original Score: B-
The comedy being insufficient to sustain this much footage, with no especially exciting action, provides serious handicaps.
Pictorially handsome in the lavish Metro style, the work tells its story in spirited, romantic episodes which catch your fancy quite independently of the songs and the music.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The first MacDonald-Eddy vehicle, enormously popular in its day so somebody must have been able to stand this simpering duo.
It's acceptable, I suppose, but it's nothing to cheer about.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The score includes the parodist's favorite, "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life," and other numbers too annoying to mention.
