Few novelists film as disastrously as John O'Hara; From the Terrace has everything that makes for overblown filming: every giant cliche you can think of.
January 30, 2016
Satisfying in many regards, this handsome soaper is nevertheless undermined by a script (by Ernest Lehman, no less) that doesn't flow as much as stumble forward.

Middling soap opera.

Just as disappointing as the other John O'Hara novel made into a movie that year, Butterfield 8 with Liz Taylor, but without that film's melodramatic juice, though Paul Newman is well cast as the ambitious, upwardly mobile man in moral crisis.

From The Terrace builds up to one big cliche.

Robson's film is still highly watchable, with Paul and Joanne pretending their marriage is on the rocks, and all sorts of machinations in the boardroom and the bedroom.
May 9, 2005
This is a handsome picture, well-performed and emotionally intriguing as it describes the rise of a young business man and the corrosive dead-lock of his loveless marriage.

July 1, 2003
An epic winker that uses, in its best moment, a rocking dinghy as a euphemism.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
A tolerable (if interminable) piece of mediocrity from 1960.
