Charles Laughton, Bela Lugosi, Richard Arlen, Kathleen Burke, Stanley Fields, Leila Hyams.
One of ultimate horror films ever made as mad scientist gone bonkers making half beast half human monstrosities on a remote island. Then an unexpected visitor turns things upside down. Tons of atomosphere and Laughton is sinister as it gets. Kathleen Burke, in one of her few roles, is an eyeful as the Panther Woman. Lugosi's makeup is something to see as man beast. A must-see classic horror film. Remade as THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU in 1977 and 1996.
Bizarre and Fascinating film.
A lady trapeze artist violates the code of the side show when she plots to murder her midget husband. Director :Tod Browning. Stars: Wallace Ford, Olga Baclanova, Leila Hyams, Harry Earles, Roscoe Ates, Johnny Eck, Daisy and Violet Hilton, Prince Randian, Zip and Pip, Schlitze.
Freaks is an outstanding pre-code film. Setting is a traveling sideshow and the camaraderie of its unusual performers, goaded to vengeance by cruel trapeze star "Olga Baclanova". Good acting and direction . The question is who are the real "freaks" the persons with the deformities or those who may look normal or handsome but are "freakish" in their inner thoughts and behavior to others. Great film recommend it highly . Not a film for the squemish.
A Journey pf Discovery . Very entertaining, should not be missed
This is a tenderhearted yet still brutal film about a film director's study of the "Human condition". His quest for knowledge about how the "other side" lives takes him on a journey that he will not soon forget. His search to understand how to "reach" his movie audience takes him through some very bizzare twists and turns in the events which unfold. He is finally enlightened to the realization that the way to truly "touch" people is a way he previously had disdained, as he simply did not understand it, yet sometimes the things that make life worth living are frequently the most simple things in life. A touching blend of drama tinged with comedic misadventures. Very entertaining, should not be missed.
Invitation was a success
Always believing she had a happy marriage, a young wife's trust in her husband is shaken when she discovers that her father had paid him to marry her.
Van Johnson and Dorothy Maguire made the perfect movie, in that the smoothness of each other was almost perfect, one would not ever know, Van was being paid. The ending was a surprise!I could watch this movie again and again. It was heart-warming.
A big, colorful, entertaining movie that could only have been made in the 1950s.
I don't really believe some of the reviews that suggest this film had some sort of covert political agenda. It's just a good story but what makes it outstanding is the talent of Gary Cooper and Dorothy McGuire. They are wonderful together. He is so understated in his acting and so appealing and she is so powerful, so strong. Neither ever made a bad movie and a number of their performances are exceptional (Cooper in Sergeant York and McGuire in A Tree Grows On Brooklyn, as examples). Their chemistry in this film is endearing. McGuire's handling of the Confederate raiders (including swinging a broom at one to protect Samantha, the family goose) and Copper's honorable treatment of the Confederate soldier are wonderful. The plot is excellent and it captures the tragedy of a nation, a state and a community divided by brutal civil war. This movie must be considered as an "essential".
