Audience Reviews for This Above All


Stolid soaper miscasts Ty as an English deserter, he exerts zero effort to seem British, and saddles Joan Fontaine with a lot of flag waving speeches which stop the film dead in it's tracks. Professionally made with a good supporting cast but uninvolving.

Well produced story of a conscientious objector (Tyrone Power) and his romance with the wealthy Joan Fontaine. Excellent Academy Award winning art direction and also nominated for cinematoghraphy, editing and sound.Great story, but I found it dragged a little in parts. Joan Fontaine is lovely, Tyrone Power is pretty good, he was never regarded as a great actor, because he isn't, but he isn't bad either.
