Movie Reviews

What a joke!
G. Van Der Grinten | 09/23/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Apart from "the snows of kilimanjaro" with other major stars -and better actors- Susan Hayward and Gregory Peck, what a terrible choice of movies for this Ava Gardner box....Even if I do not regard her as a very good actress ,she was a beauty and she made better movies....."
Public domain Gardner

"For a "signature collection" this is very weak indeed.

Ava Gardner in "Ghosts on the Loose" is a minor back-up for the East Side Kids (Bowery Boys). Ava co-stars in "Whistle Stop," an OK film (as far as George Raft vehicles go), and the best of this small lot, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," has been in the public domain seemingly forever. Even here, Gardner plays third fiddle.

GHOSTS ON THE LOOSE-- One of the many hour-length comedies being churned out in the 1940s by MONOGRAM studios. A low-budget mild fright flick featuring Bela Lugosi, the requisite haunted house, and oh yes, Ava G.

SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO-- As a writer lays dying, he thinks about his life. Based on several Ernest Hemingway stories. Even the author didn't like this film.

WHISTLE STOP-- Mary returns to her home town, reigniting bad feelings in the little lover's triangle she had once been the hypotenuse of.

The MAUREEN O'HARA COLLECTION is a similar package from St. Clair.
