Beau Geste Reviews
After about 30 minutes of sitting out our punishments on the couch, we were given the chance to get up.
We refused. We were transfixed and wanted too finish watching.
My brother was about 8 and I was about 6 at the time.
That says A LOT for the brilliance of this movie in that it was able to capture the attention of two little pouty kids who'd just bruised the tar out of each other. BRILLIANT!!
Also, this movie made me cry because it was the first time (if not the only time), my favorite movie star dies in a movie.
Plot is OK, direction is OK. Acting is good, especially from Gary Cooper. Ray Millland wrecks another movie with his accent (Dial M for Murder was the other one where he irritated me).
