Under-rated for its' time
15 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously, this a 'feel good' film, but that is typical of the 50's when everyone was good, honest and Ike was president.

Margaret O'Brien and Walter Brennan carry this film. I thought Margaret was just as good an actress as in her childhood roles. She is just as pretty as Natalie Wood and I have never figured out why she wasn't cast in more adult roles. Was she adverse to playing femme fa tales? Did she lack the figure of a Janet Leigh or Elizabeth Taylor (note: O'Brien had small breasts and large thighs, calves). Was she flat in acting roles that required an adult theme? Or, was she just sick of acting? The film is not of the quality of 'National Velvet' but pretty good family fare. Personally, I think Margaret O'Brien would have been a superstar had she been born twenty years later.

I thought Margaret was 13 in 'Little Women' made in 1948 and released in 1949, but, if she was 19 in 1956 she would have been 11 in 'Little Women.' Many lay critics have told me she was 13 in 'Little Women,' Janet Leigh was 17, Elizabeth Taylor was 16 and June Alyson was 34.

Margaret O'Brien was very attractive in 'Glory,' and I would rank her with Natalie Wood and Janet Leigh in looks and acting ability. Taylor? NOT! Someone, please tell me why Margaret O'Brien didn't have an adult career at the level of the others mentioned in my review
