An Outstanding Poignant Drama
25 February 2005 | by none-85See all my reviews

I just watched the film after not seeing it for more than 40 years. The screenplay, the acting, the B&W cinematography are excellent. All of the actors- lead and supporting are excellent, especially Raf Vallone and Carol Lawrence.

The only negative is not the film, but the quality of the VHS tape. Perhaps I shouldn't complain, since the video is listed as unavailable. I bought the tape, listed as new, from Movies Unlimited through Amazon. It presents the film in total, but there is bad static in certain places and the picture could have been sharper. Nevertheless, it is very worthwhile to buy.
