A sight for sore eyes
6 November 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw the movie 'Parrish' was when it was released in theaters back in the early sixties. I have never forgotten it. The score by Max Steiner is wonderful. Seeing screen legend Claudette Colbert on screen again after coming out of retirement was a sight for sore eyes. Parrish's three girl-friends: Diane McBain, Connie Stevens and Sharon Hugueny are all stunning. America's finest character actor, Karl Malden, is his usual marvelous self. Once again director/writer Delmer Daves gives his audience two hours of fine entertainment. Finally, the supporting cast is filled with familiar faces who have become famous and it's fun identifying them.
