Absorbing Light Drama By The Golden Gate
17 April 2001 | by (Forestville, Ca) – See all my reviews

STRANDED would be more aptly named THE GOLDEN GATE. There is some fascinating footage of the actual construction of the bridge and it adds to the excitement as the drama unfolds. George Brent is solid as the foreman on the construction job -- trying to keep his men in line and up against gangsters who want pay-off for "protection". George meets Kay Francis who plays with her usual self-assurance and grace as a Traveler's Aid worker.

Francis' role focuses on a compassionate look at the assimilation of foreign brides, assisting "lost" elders and children at the train depot. Her role also shows an understanding for the problems of unwed mothers. Francis' has a natural knack for making it all plausible -- she believes in her work and her role and is wonderful to watch. The surprise ending is a real switch from the usual 1930-60's fare as far as male-female roles are concerned.

Lots of great character actors show up: Ann Shoemaker, Robert Barrett, Frankie Darro, Henry O'Neil, Barton MacLane. Borgaze's direction and Delmer Daves pen add some nice comic touches keeping the drama light.
