      The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) The earthly purgatory of a drug addict (sensitively portrayed by Frank Sinatra) adds up to a strong and shocking movie, although the bitter ending of Nelson Algren's novel has been sugared for the screen. - Maclean's Magazine

      Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) A prehistoric man shaped fish falls in love with screaming Julia Adams in an Amazon backwater, but his courtship is a failure. So is the movie. - Maclean's Magazine

      Cyrano de Bergerac (1950) The magnificent acting of José Ferrer and the clarion rhetoric of Edmond Rostand's semi-classic drama are not quite enough to conceal the central weaknesses of the story. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) Although a good deal less penetrating in its close-up of "the real Hollywood" than it pretends to be, this is a smooth and enjoyable comedy-drama. - Maclean's Magazine

      St. Louis Blues (1958) A disappointing screen biography of the late W. C. Handy, the father of the blues, with a thin and bloodless story and not even a generous amount of music by way of compensation. - Maclean's Magazine

      Untamed Frontier (1952) Nice color photography and a honey of a stampede are assets to be weighed against a garrulous script and several wooden characters in this cow-country drama. - Maclean's Magazine

      Winchester '73 (1950) A good western. - Maclean's Magazine

      Born Yesterday (1950) An excellent comedy, equally gratifying to the funnybone and the intelligence of an adult audience. - Maclean's Magazine

      Flower Drum Song (1961) Like most of the Rodgers-and-Hammerstcin musicals, this one probably is headed for success at the movie box-office, but in honest warmth and melodic appeal it compares weakly with its predecessors. - Maclean's Magazine

      Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (1951) Ava Gardner never looked lovelier, and two hours and three minutes never seemed longer, than in this pretentious semi-mystic romance. - Maclean's Magazine

      Giant (1956) Edna Ferber's sprawling yarn about life in Texas has its share of corn, and so has the film, but master director George Stevens has put it all together with vitality and insight. - Maclean's Magazine

      Gigi (1958) The excellent cast also includes Maurice Chevalier and Isabel Jeans. The songs are pleasant, although nobody in the film ever quite gets around to singing them in full voice. - Maclean's Magazine

      Paths of Glory (1957) Customers impatient of anything but escapist entertainment on the screen may be harshly jolted by this bleak and powerful antimilitarism drama. For less narrow viewers, it s a picture that should not be missed. - Maclean's Magazine

      The High and the Mighty (1954) There is plenty of tension toward the finish of this widely-read tale...but most of the characters are banal "types," what they say is often uncomfortably corny... - Maclean's Magazine

      The Golden Coach (1953) Italy's high-voltage actress Anna Magnani and French director Jean Renoir join forces in a confused but lively and enjoyable farce-fantasy. The fanciful plot defies synopsis here. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Student Prince (1954) The prince's tenor voice actually belongs to the invisible Mario Lanza. His top notes sound a bit strained now, but the schmaltzy old songs are still hummable. - Maclean's Magazine

      Merry Andrew (1958) The new Danny Kaye comedy isn't the best he has ever done but it's a genial and funny show. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Seven Hills of Rome (1958) I don't happen to enjoy Mario Lanza's brand of hammy, self-infatuated vocalism, and his acting is much worse than his singing. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Girl He Left Behind (1956) There are a few quite funny moments in this American army comedy. Most of it, though, is embarrassingly coy and contrived. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Greatest Show on Earth (1952) Director Cecil B. deMille, an all-star cast, and the world's biggest circus . . . and the result, to me at least, is mainly a great crashing bore in spite of a few exhilarating moments. - Maclean's Magazine

      The People Against O'Hara (1951) It's a bit lumbering in pace, but decent and unpretentious, and some of the minor roles are unusually well-acted. - Maclean's Magazine

      Detective Story (1951) Sidney Kingsley's hard-hitting Broadway drama about life in a big-town police station has been expertly filmed by William Wyler. The result is muscular entertainment for adults. - Maclean's Magazine

      A Hill in Korea (1956) With a gratifying minimum of both ultra-heroics and matey service humor, this British war drama absorbingly recreates the minuteby-minute ordeal of a small patrol trapped by the enemy in Korea. The non-celebrity cast does its work with unassuming skill. - Maclean's Magazine

      The Benny Goodman Story (1955) Dull in the drama department, this hi-fi tribute to America's King of Swing is nonetheless recommended for jazz enthusiasts. TV's Steve Allen impersonates BG. - Maclean's Magazine
