"Sweet Tornado" brings Margo Jones to life.
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Sweet Tornado" is an invaluable documentary not just because of its creative virtues -- namely, combining archival footage with scenes re-created from actual letters and transcriptions. The film also virtually resurrected the persona of Margo Jones, the highly-charged producer/director who might otherwise have slipped into obscurity (did anyone know, for instance, that she was the first to stage "Inherit the Wind" in Dallas, of all places, where instead of railroading her out of town sanctimoniously, she was wildly embraced). Obviously, her contributions to the emergency of Tennessee Williams are more well-known and certainly salutary. So Kay Cattarulla and her crew have pulled off a very impressive and important work.
