    Never Let Me Go is a decent film. It is about an American reporter who is stationed in post-war Moscow and marries a ballet dancer. Clark Gable and Gene Tierney give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Delmer Daves did an alright job directing. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and romance.

    Sappy propagandist film. Aging Gable seems unlikely match for lovely Tierney. Bernard Miles is good in support.

    Never Let Me Go (1953) This cold war love story was written by British crime novelist, Andrew Garve. Philip Sutherland (Clark Gable) is an American news writer for British news anchor, Steve Quillian (Kenneth More). It's the end of the war and Phillip's narration explains how the early wartime alliance of nations is slowly moving towards distrust in Joe Stalin's USSR. Philip has been madly in love with a Russian ballerina, Marya Lamarkina (Gene Tierney) and she in him. Although they both know that this whole affair is doomed from the start, they get married anyway. They meet another couple, British Christopher Wellington St. John Denny (Richard Haydn) and Svetlana Mikhailovna (Anna Valentina) in a similar situation. Now they need to find a way to be together. Philip thought that he would simply stay in the USSR, but the government deports him, denies his Visa, and refuses to let Marya leave with him. Now Philip and Christopher, using Joe Brooks (Bernard Miles) who has a boat, must sneak back into Russia and smuggle Marya and Svetlana out of the USSR.

    Belita turned to the screen after her Olympic success as a skater / dancer who was a household name in the 40's and 50's. Sadly the films were poorly made and although she was quite famous at the time, her career dimmed and today she is now mostly forgotten.
