Charming
21 July 2001 | by (Johnstown, Pa) – See all my reviews

Another charming and enjoyable Marion Davies film. She plays Patricia/Patrick O'Day from Ireland. Davies is excellent and plays the role with the humor and self awareness that the role calls for considering the material she had to work with.

Harrison Ford also does a good job playing against his feelings towards the character of Davies/Pat O'Day. What makes this film interesting is how they play on the border of same sex love.

It's very well made and directed. Hearst never went half way on any picture of hers and this is no exception.
