Green Dolphin street is a very wonderful movie. Many people would probably not sit through the whole thing because it is old, it's in black and white, etc. However, if you actually take the time to watch it you will find that it is a wonderful story and it delivers powerful life lessons. Lana Turner plays Marrianne beautifully, she gives a convincing portrayal of a stubborn, slightly pushy, but kind and caring girl. Donna Reed plays her younger sister, Marguerite, a sweeter, gentler girl. The reason I love the story so much is because of the girls' strength and determination throughout all the twists and turns that are thrown at them. Neither of them ever gives up hope, each of the characters works through every problem he or she comes across and never forgets the importance of love and commitment. The story is poignant and beautiful, it makes me cry.
