Audience Reviews for The Red Danube

I happened to catch this movie on late one night and I've been hooked every since. The cast is all perfect together. I really love Walter Pidgeon's role and how his character seems to evolve through the movie. The movie takes some interesting and unexpected twists and turns throughout. I highly recommend this one looking for a new classic favorite!!
