great cornfest
5 August 2004 | by theehtSee all my reviews

Someone mentioned that Harvey was an unexplained vogue, but I shake my head in disbelief at all the unexplaiend vogues of the last 20 years, such as Demi MOre, Madonna, Meg Ryan, Julia roberts, Eddy Murphy,Tom Cruise,and on and on how celebrity has fallen! What do you people see in these uncharismatic nothings? Anyhow, Harvey is quite good as a drifer who takes up with Jane Fonda, in rare early great form as a very bad girl who turns out good. Capucine and Babs Stanwyick have the roles of their careers.The ending actually brought a tear to my eye. This great trashy movie has actually gotten better with age. Try to check it out and decide for yourself.
