Reunion in France (1942)

** (out of 4)

Bland and rather boring film from MGM has Joan Crawford playing Parisian Michele de la Becque who doesn't realize that the man (Philip Dorn) she loves has connection to the Nazi party. When an American pilot (John Wayne) asks for her to hide him, she does so even though it puts her own life in danger. REUNION IN France was just one of dozens of films that were made during WWII by Hollywood to try and support the war and of course send off various messages. Many of these messages would be considered propaganda today but it's important to remember what was going on in the country when this was released. With that said, no matter what was going on at the time, that doesn't make up for the fact that this is a pretty bland and forgettable film. The biggest problem is actually the thing you'd expect to be the best and that's the cast. There are so many problems with the lead including the fact that Crawford is playing a woman from France yet she keeps her American accent. From interviews later in her life it's clear that she was embarrassed by this performance and it's easy to see why. Then we've got Wayne who is so out of touch with his character you can't help but wonder how his career managed to go on and he became a legend. Yes, he's pretty bad here but what's worst are the two of them together. The chemistry between the stars is absolutely zero and their entire romance isn't a bit believable. The supporting cast does somewhat better with Reginald Owen, Albert Bassermann, Henry Daniell and John Carradine all doing fine work. Look fast for a young Ava Gardner. REUNION IN France is a curiosity at best due to the fact that you've got two legends together in one film but the thing just doesn't work.
