Audience Reviews for Jim Thorpe---All American

  • Aug 30, 2020
    Another well directed picture by Michael Curtiz. The film's major failing, though, is its miss-telling of several aspects of Thorpe''s life. Nonetheless, its intent is myth building and Burt Lancaster's performance makes this picture a success.

    burt lancaster's socially conscious in this making-it-despite-all-the-lousy-breaks (and people)-against-yah pass of time that's as politically correct as the time it was made. thank goodness this society's improved it's relationship with native americans nowadays, yessir!
