None of the characters were likable, but the tragic story is well-executed by the talented director and Sanders and Darnell give fine performances.

Audience Reviews for Summer Storm

Early american Sirk film is a little slow but still interesting version of Chekov's The Shooting Party. His signature stylistic elements are not wholly in evidence yet although he uses shadows effectively and he gets excellent work from his cast particularly Edward Everett Horton playing a more complex part then usual. Linda Darnell is also most impressive in the first of the bad girl roles in which she excelled, she is almost supernaturally beautiful.
