Great movies of yesteryears
3 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a 66 year old man, I saw this movie in the early to mid fifties and thought it was great...I would like to see it again. I thought the acting was great and have always thought that Linda Darnell was a pretty and good actress. Being a retired professional photographer I still enjoy the lighting of the good old "greats" in black and white. The movie photographers of yesteryear were artist of their times. The great 3 dimensional look due to the highlights and shadows were magnificent. A remake of this type of movie would be great with some of the good actors of today. Andy Garcia would fit the part since he is such a great actor and nice looking. Along this type of movie would be "It Happened Tomorrow" and I Married a Witch with Fredric March and Veronica Lake.
