Tom, Dick and Harry Reviews
There was no problem for the character of Ginger Rogers. Ginger was playing a small town girl ready for a husband, although not sure of what she wanted in that husband that would sustain her future. In the dreams of our leading lady, Ginger is tossed and turned in her bed about what the future might hold for her if the man (Tom/Dick/Harry) was THE man. Ginger plays confused, lovestruck, and naive so well that it was hard for me to predict who she's pick when the movie was over.
The problem I faced was deciding if Ginger could have been really in love with Harry or any other man she might meet. Sure, the bells rang when the two kissed. Sure, she found him enjoyable when he introduced her to a world she had yet to imagine. But so did Dick. Dick was very agreeable with his rich lifestyle Ginger could only dream of. And as for Tom- she knew him the longest. Tom's habits, skills, pet peeves, and past, she probably knew them all. so can it be said that Ginger made the best choice for her husband? I'll let you know when I kiss my love and hear bells.
The foremost merit of [b]A Girl in Every Port[/b] is that it has Groucho starring. No other Marxes though. It's not a bad film, but not a memorable one either. Some good lines here and there.
[b]Tom, Dick and Harry[/b] has Ginger Rogers. She's engaged to all three. It also has general funniness and good dream sequences. She's very adorable.
[b]A Streetcar Named Desire[/b] has just about everything.
Very close to perfection comes also Luchino Visconti's adaptation of a Dostoevsky short story [b]White Nights[/b]. A gorgeous, hypnotic, intelligent and involving lovestory. The very only reason I don't give it a 10 is to make A Streetcar...look like the winner of this bunch.
[i]Upgrade: I'm pumpin' it up to 10. I feel I'm not giving enough 10s.[/i]
