Unimaginative Version of Weepy Story
25 July 2002 | by borschSee all my reviews

Unimaginative filming of an already sentiment-steeped story. The actors are poorly directed indeed--they use exaggerated, cliched expressions and gestures that would have been out of place in the worst silent melodrama--and the production values are strictly Poverty Row (tho this film was in fact made by a major studio, RKO). The 1959 version with David Ladd is the version of choice.
