Edge of Darkness (1943)
An Epic War Movie of Timeless Quality.
Powerful, dramatic, and rousing, this 1940's war propaganda movie is of the same stock as The Whits Cliffs of Cover and Blockade, only with a different approach. Set in the backdrop of Norway, the movie focuses its energies on the proletariat and their struggles against the Nazis. Errol Flynn stars in a role that is more dual leadership than his previous sole leadership roles. Ann Sheridan takes the female part in a role that was not commonly depicted in the -40's: a strong woman. Although slightly biased (as were the majority of films conceived in this time period), the movie is moving and evocative. Not Errol's strongest role, this movie, after viewing hundreds of 30's and 40's movies, is one of the best ones in terms of its message, objective, and acting.
