Production line romance shows its star out of character.
25 September 2002 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

SHORE LEAVE fall in the gap between Barthlemess as the Tol'able teenager and him as the anguished middle aged lead in the Warners thirties dramas. It's odd to find him playing a thick, aggressive Cagney type

The film is a machine made romance, too artificial and implausible to involve more than curiosity. The handling is competent and the appealing Miss Mackaill is winning, if too self possessed, as the never been kissed dress maker. More sea faring material and less of painted backdrop Nantucket would have helped.
