Patric Knowles and son John Drew Barrymore lead a rebellion against the British in Quebec
20 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Quebec" is a Hollywoodized version of the Lower Canada Rebellion or Patriots' War. This means that it's actually a simplified movie story, fictional in nearly all respects, that uses the historical rebellion as a setting. As a fictional story, it is nothing special. It is of interest mainly to fans of Hollywood-type adventure yarns or those who enjoy seeing old Paramount movies in technicolor and seeing the old stars go through their paces.

In the story, Corinne Calvet is the mother of Barrymore by Knowles, but she's married to the cruel British commander of the Quebec fort set on a high bluff. Barrymore doesn't know she's his mom. The story shows the battles and the attempts of the much weaker Canadian assembly of commoners to overcome the entrenched British military presence. The story also focuses on the Barrymore-Calvet relationship and on a bit of romance of Barrymore with Barbara Rush.

It's done fairly well without a big budget. It holds one's attention. Some of the night battle scenes are quite dark and hard to make out. Knowles, an accomplished player, carries his part. Barrymore displays naiveté of his character and then leadership qualities. Calvet speaks in English with her heavy French accent; she's a reliable player.
