Carbine Williams Reviews

    Curiously forgotten by the masses, CARBINE WILLIAMS boasts an interesting story and one of Stewart's best performances. This is ripe for rediscovery.

    Carbine Williams is a disappointing film. It is about the man who invented the M-1 carbine rifle, a gun that changed the ways in which wars were fought. James Stewart and Jean Hagen give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Richard Thorpe did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

    Any movie James Stewart is in becomes a Classic, this is no defferant. A perfect grouping of actors replaying the life of Marsh Williams as he becomes one of Americas most important gun designers in history, Family friendly, this is another movie I watch several times a year, it never gets old. James Stewart in my opinon is one of the best actors of all time. A must see movie

    A fine story of redemption after a man is unjustly convicted and then earns his warden's respect to where he is trusted to build and patent a new gun in jail. Not much to this one, but it was alright.

    Dramatization of the life of David Marshall Williams, who invented the M1 Carbine rifle used extensively during WWII while he was in prison for killing a federal agent (a sheriff deputy in real-life) who came across his still (it was an ambush by Williams and his still workers in real-life). James Stewart plays Williams, and although he was too old for the role, he reportedly actively pursued the role because the film reflected his conservative political views (the film has an anti-federal government message via the prohibition story). Overall, the film is far from a classic, but Steward lends credibility and class to a mildly diverting story.

    Caught some parts of this on TV. Pretty cool film, especially how it was based on the story of the M1 Carbine's creation. Jimmy Stewart gives a solid acting performance here, as usual.
