T-Meter Title | Year
60% Pinky (1949) This is a disappointing, false picture which has good scenes in it. The good scenes will make you feel good but the bad scenes will make you feel very, very bad, indeed. - California Eagle EDIT

71% House of Strangers (1949) Strangers is not a true reflection of Italian Americans. It insults Italians in much the same way that [Lost Boundaries] insults the Negro people. - California Eagle EDIT

60% In the Good Old Summertime (1949) Judy sings beautifully. She's one of Hollywood's more progressive people -- and her intelligence shows on the screen. - California Eagle EDIT

97% White Heat (1949) What a sad story that Cagney, a man of intelligence and taste, could not succeed making pictures of artistry and had to come back to Warners and make this tripe. - California Eagle EDIT

97% Children of Paradise (Les Enfants du Paradis) (1946) Don't skip this one if you can. I saw it in Paris and it remains one of the most memorable pictures I've seen. - California Eagle EDIT

No Score Yet Come to the Stable (1949) The sad life of a Negro in Hollywood comes clear here. Dooley Wilson, who scored one of the screen's most sensational debuts in Humphrey Bogart's Casablanca, is here reduced to a lowly chauffeur... [his] fine talent is unseen and unheard. - California Eagle EDIT

No Score Yet Roughshod (1949) Here's a Western with all the trimmings and the usual ending, but it's too boring. - California Eagle EDIT

No Score Yet The Woman on Pier 13 (I Married a Communist) (1949) Only the gullible are going to fall for this one. - California Eagle EDIT

100% Intruder in the Dust (1949) Intruder in the Dust is a dynamic move, one of the most sincere ever to be mode in Hollywood. - California Eagle EDIT

98% Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette) (The Bicycle Thief) (1949) If there ever was a picture whose impact left one realizing that men who are tortured are the same in any country -- this is the movie. - California Eagle EDIT
