Lots To Like: It Should Be On A DVD
20 September 2005 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Nob Hill (1945) was one of three films released in 1945 that featured Peggy Ann Garner, one of the best - if not the best - child actors ever to grace the screen.

George Raft shares the spotlight with Garner but deservedly gets top billing. He was a big name at the time and the story centers around his character a bit more than Garner's. Also featured are two very pretty women: Vivian Blaine and Joan Bennett. Too bad Blaine didn't appear in many films. She would have been well-known.

The biggest "too bad," however, is that this movie has never been available on VHS or DVD. It should get the DVD treatment if for no other reason that the gorgeous Technicolor. This is one of the prettiest classic films ever, believe me!

If you enjoyed Miss Garner in her famous role as "Francie" in "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn," you'll like her here, too. She's even more likable and sweeter in this film, start-to-finish, and does a pretty fair job with an Irish accent.

Actually, everybody in this sugary-sweet film is likable, even tough--guy Raft. Blaine supplies the song-and-dance routines and handles them well. There are almost a handful of them so some consider this a musical. I thought it was more of a drama. The story has a good mix of drama, romance, music and comedy. Since it's a Raft film, there are even a few punches thrown.

The color and the nice feel-good people and storyline are what make this film worth watching......and owning, if someone would please put this on DVD!
