Not the Classic Verson
10 July 2005 | by (San Jose) – See all my reviews

TianshingI may be confusing this 1974 made for television version with the superb 1945 original directed by Elia Kazan.

That's just a hunch on my part. I doubt that AMC would be showing the remake, rather than the original, so many times.

In any case, I recommend that anyone who has an interest in this remake should also toggle over to check out the Kazan-directed movie.

It won several Oscars, and is justly considered one of the greatest American films of its period.

It was also Kazan's feature-film debut, and showed his prodigious talent right from the very start.
