Critic Reviews for Forbidden

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The vitriol and hurt coursing through this prickly, scandalous pre-code melodrama from 1932 may wrong-foot those who had director Frank Capra pegged as head cheerleader for good ol' American democracy and cheery, affirmative humanist values.

This is sadly disappointing stuff from such masters of their craft.

Radio Times

Well before the end the whole thing collapses into rip-roaring melodrama.

Overblown meller that Missy Stanwyck makes worth watching, as she always did.
