Anthony Adverse Reviews
It had great locations good acting talent but it just didn't work & midway the film got really slow & dragged heavily.
The physicality's of this film are great, ie great costume design & cinematography but as I well know it takes a lot more than that.
Olivia DeHavilland is a sensation though in a sense the films only saving grace....
(1936) Anthony Adverse
A little arbitruary but well made DRAMA and ADVENTURE film about during the times of swashbuckling starring the two- time Oscar winner Frederich March. An AVENTURE and DRAMA film about sacrifice, nobility and honor. This film has more drama than physical action.
Great and one of the most realistic (real life )in terms of a black and white film I had ever seen.
3.5 out of 4
