Audience Reviews for The Story of Alexander Graham Bell

  • Apr 18, 2015
    Don Ameche does his best to get us to give a damn about his efforts to create the first version of perhaps the most omnipresent bit of technology in the world today, but he is hogtied by the insistence of the powers that were to focus on Loretta Young as the love interest. Fonda's part is not worth mentioning as his assistant, Watson. Only Charles Coburn manages to escape the prerequisite confines of this bio-schlockfest.
