Finally, a classic not suffering from overexposure
This is a better film than some of those dressed in the musty threads of old politics seem likely to concede any time soon. Sweeping aside the calculus of smugness and old-left/ old-right factionalism for a second, one would in honesty have to admit All My Sons is as tightly wound as the better films of the day. --As intense as Notorious or Out of the Past, as absorbing as Sorry Wrong Number or The Spiral Staircase, this film can hold its head high in pretty fast company. If I was to recommend 2 Edward G. Robinson performances, I would probably nominate his work in this film, and Scarlet Street. Likewise, this film and Come Back Little Sheba contain some of Burt Lancaster's best work. See it. Ten stars.
