Critic Reviews for All My Sons
Robinson gives a realistic performance of the man who is willing to sacrifice the lives of the boys for his own profit. It is one that will be long remembered by theatre goers. All the parts are well played, under Irving Reis' superb direction.
A semi-effective transfer to the screen of Arthur Miller's famous play, though Burt Lancaster is miscast.
Audience Reviews for All My Sons
Betrays its stage origins, especially at the end, but still a gripping drama with excellent performances all around.
The Great Burt Lancaster and the great Edward Robinson together in a movie written by Arthur Miller, what else do you really need to know. The film started off a little slow, but once it got going it had me hooked and wanting to see where this story would go. One of my favorite monlouges is by Edward G. in Double Indemnity, and he gives another great one in this as well. You give this guy 10 pages to read its almost guarentee he will knock it out the park. Its like giving the ball to Bird at the end of the game, you know the outcome, but you get excited waiting for it.
The son of a small town business man discovers that his loving, devoted father may have sold defective aircraft parts to the U.S. military during WWII. A nice vehicle for showcasing the talents of both Burt Lancaster (the son) and Edward G. Robinson (the father). This post-war morality tale deals with the impact that our decisions and choices have on others. A good film but not one that's exceptionally memorable.
