Absorbing story from Katherine Anne Porter...
13 April 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I saw NOON WINE when it originally aired in 1966 and haven't seen it since, so my memory of it has dulled over the years.

But I do recall that I was not as impressed overall by the bleak story as some of the viewers seem to indicate--nor was I pleased with the screen version of Katherine Anne Porter's SHIP OF FOOLS which in no way lived up to the novel.

I do recall that JASON ROBARDS, JR. seemed to have the principal role which, of course, was given the most footage whereas OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND, THEODORE BIKEL and PER OSCARSSON had more peripheral roles as the unfortunate people caught up in the tragedy. Olivia, as a farmer's wife, had another one of her less glamorous roles, just two years after appearing as Cousin Miriam in HUSH...HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE, and it was the sort of role that required her to appear more like she did in THE PROUD REBEL.

Other than that, while it may have appealed to fans of the Katherine Anne Porter short story, it was a bit heavy-handed to qualify as entertainment for the masses although the acting was good. Too bad it is not available for viewing by the general public today, but it was no masterpiece.
