The result is a cinema treat.
Adapted from an old Shaw play, circa 1905, it still carries the lightning thrusts of Shavian caustic satire at any and all levels.
There is plenty to relish, notably Newton and Morley hamming it up (as, respectively, the rumbustious Bill Walker and the overbearing tycoon), and Deborah Kerr in her debut; but it does tend to just sit there.
To call it a manifest triumph would be arrant stinginess with words.
Though a bit slow to start and overlong (GBS added 18 minutes to the screenplay), this is still an enthusiastic and intelligent rendering of the wonderful Shavian wit and sense of the ridiculous.
[A] superb screen adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's morality study about the Salvation Army and armaments manufacture.
A bit theatrical in places, which is not surprising when you consider its provenance but it suffers for it.
Pascal's screen version of Bernard Shaw's 1905 satire about socialism and capitalism is too theatrical, but the dialogue is witty and the performances by Rex Harrison and Wendy Hiller superb.
Good intro to corporate social responsibility.
... preserves the social debate and witty dialogue of the play and succeeds on the personality brought to the screen by a top-notch cast.
Uma fascinante discussão sobre moralidade, religião (no sentido de redenção pessoal) e sacrifícios ideológicos em prol de princípios maiores.
Splendid translation of Shaw's play.
