Anthony Hopkins tells the story of working with Katherine Hepburn on A LION IN WINTER, how she said "Don't speak the line, just say it." In this largely uninteresting second feature -- or third feature, we see evidence that advice is good advice. Almost everyone speaks their lines portentously, in an effort to give them weight and importance. Only third-billed Anthony Quinn just says his lines, as if they had just occurred to him, and he is present in the moment and much more intelligent in presentation than everyone else. He steals the show from first-billed Joan Perry and eponymous, second-billed Roger Pryor.
I cannot recommend this movie particularly, but if you feel a need to see it, you'll enjoy it for Quinn.
