Critic Reviews for The Mark

All Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Best-known for Stuart Whitman Oscar-nominated turn, this b/w film concerns a man who, after serving time in prison for molesting a girl, starts a new life with the aid of a kind psychiatrist (Rod Steiger) and a sensitive woman (Maria Schell).

    November 5, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The Mark is a well-made and well-acted film that suffers from a bloated length, dreary pacing and essentially unpleasant subject matter.

    Good work by Whitman in a difficult role.

    This is quite the tale with a level of sophistication that was only starting to emerge during the sixties. The topics are taboo and the acting required to pull something like this off are significant. I think Stuart Whitman does it well.

    How could this movie be bad, its got Rod Steiger in it, after all he was born in the same town as I and the same Day, just not the same year, thank God. Movie show's how people really think about you no matter what you have gone through. Stereo Type. Its in Black & White and Ole School but a hell of a film. My opion this should be part of the Criterion Collection.
