LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Norman Taurog. Judy Garland, Van Heflin, Fay Bainter, Richard Carlson, Spring Byington, Marta Eggerth, Marilyn Maxwell, Ray McDonald, Leonid Kinskey, Connie Gilchrist, Bob Crosby, Tommy Dorsey. Well, there she is, and there lies the script. Stale story of determined girl getting big chance on Broadway only comes alive when Judy sings. From a Booth Tarkington novel.

Presenting Judy Garland! Whether swinging a hot number with Bob Crosby's orchestra or emoting a hilariously hammy version of Lady MacBeth's sleepwalking scene, Judy is a delight as a... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Lloyd Corrigan. Edna May Oliver, James Gleason, Lola Lane, Chick Chandler, George Meeker, Dorothy Libaire, Morgan Wallace, Leo (G.) Carroll. After a murder takes place on a seaplane ride to Catalina Island, Hildegarde Withers (who happened to be on the plane) gets Inspector Oscar Piper to come there and solve the crime. Entertaining entry in the Withers series, cowritten by Robert Benchley and actually filmed on the picturesque island.

D: Don Hartman. Robert Mitchum, Janet Leigh, Wendell Corey, Gordon Gebert, Griff Barnett, Esther Dale, Henry O'Neill, Henry (Harry) Morgan. Well-done Christmastime story of war widow Leigh, with a young son, who's courted by nice-guy Corey. Fate intervenes when she meets articulate, kindly rolling stone Mitchum. Remade in 1997.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Delmer Daves. James Stewart, Jeff Chandler, Debra Paget, Will Geer, Jay Silverheels. Authentic study of 1870s Apache Chief Cochise (Chandler) and ex-Army man (Stewart) trying to seek accord between feuding Indians and settlers. Flavorful and effective; good action sequences. Screenplay, credited to Michael Blankfort, was actually written by Albert Maltz, then a blacklistee. Chandler played Cochise again in THE BATTLE AT APACHE PASS. Later a TV series.

James Stewart, Jeff Chandler. An ex-soldier, who has already seen enough death and destruction, visits the notorious Apache leader Cochise to propose a truce. Not only does he... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Raoul Walsh. Aldo Ray, Cliff Robertson, Raymond Massey, William Campbell, Richard Jaeckel, James Best, Joey Bishop, L. Q. Jones, Robert Gist, Lili St. Cyr, Barbara Nichols. Norman Mailer's intensive novel about WW2 soldiers in the Pacific gets superficial but rugged filmization. Ray is the tough sergeant, Robertson the rich-kid lieutenant, Bishop the comic Jew, Jones the hick, Gist the loner, etc. RKO-Scope/WarnerScope.

D: William Witney. Roy Rogers, Penny Edwards, Gordon Jones, Jack Holt, Emory Parnell, Clifton Young, Carol Nugent, Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage. Roy's final Trucolor Western has him rounding up a host of Western guest stars--Rex Allen, Allan "Rocky'' Lane, Monte Hale, Tom Tyler, William Farnum, Ray "Crash'' Corrigan, Kermit Maynard, Tom Keene--to help thwart Christmas tree rustlers. Delightful; the perfect Christmas Western.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: John Ford. John Wayne, Pedro Armendariz, Harry Carey, Jr., Ward Bond, Mae Marsh, Jane Darwell, Ben Johnson, Mildred Natwick. Sturdy, sentimental, sometimes beautiful rendition of Peter B. Kyne's oft-filmed saga of three bandits who "adopt'' a baby born in the desert. Final scene doesn't ring true, but Ford makes up for it in balance of film. Dedicated to the director's first star, Harry Carey, Sr. Remade for TV as THE GODCHILD.

D: David Bradley. George Murphy, Nancy Davis (Reagan), Billy Gray, Kurt Kasznar, Lewis Stone. A lonely boy tries to prove reclusive neighbor Kasznar killed his dog. Good use of California orchard locations, well-judged direction, and John Alton's moody photography result in a fine little B that deserves to be better known.
