Two Stars Caught In A Programmer
12 April 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

John Garfield, the quintessential New Yorker, as an Oklahoma oil driller? Beautiful Frances Farmer with close-cropped hair in denims and checks? What in the world was anyone thinking of? The supporting cast is good. Farmer is OK and Garfield is good. When they're together, they actually resemble each other physically. Maybe my imagination and maybe it was their similarly good bone structure.

Probably they knew each other from the Group Theater but great drama this sure is not.

Garfield died tragically young. Farmer's career, as has been well documented, was cut very short by her mother's intervention and her horrifying lobotomy.

What a shame that one of the very few Farmer movies still shown and one of maybe ten or 15 with Garfield has to be something so dull and routine as this.
