Movie Reviews

John Cobb | Austin, TX | 02/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Natalie Wood was in her prime, she was at the top of the biz, stunningly beautiful, sharp, but accessible. And no one played the all-american stud better than Jim Garner.Call it a bedroom farce if you like but Cash McCall combines a lot of wheeling and dealing with a good old fashioned boy-meets-girl to make a very pleasing movie.At first glance, McCall (Garner) is part playboy, part ruthless businessman, but we know better; that his heart of gold belongs only to Lory Austen (Wood), a woman he met last Summer, and he's thought of nothing but her since.Standard fare, well done with attractive stars, that alone puts it in the upper 20% as far as I'm concerned. Enjoy it."
One of My All Time Favorites

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Sitting in Washinton D.C. a week after the worst terrorist attacks in US history, this was the movie I wanted to see. Perhaps because it was a simpler time back then -- in my life and in the movie -- or because I have so many fond memories of Miss Wood, or maybe because I just needed a good cry.The story is bittersweet, but there is a happy ending. The businessmen have hearts, and the mid-century architecture (McCall's penthouse) and Miss Wood's wardrobe are just superb.Pretty Woman can't hold a candle to this one."
This classic should be reissued in DVD!
William LaPlant | Mt. Vernon, VA USA | 05/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film, currently only available in VHS, has become a classic on which other classics are based! As has been pointed out by others, the plot of "Pretty Woman" (ASIN 6305696071) borrows heavily from this earlier film. Natalie Wood shines as much in her role in this film as the poor little rich girl as Julia Roberts does in hers in the other as the lady of the evening with the heart of gold. Both convince the heroes (played respectively by James Garner and Richard Gere) that its better to build up the companies they buy than to tare them apart. Thus both are an affirmation of what can be best about capitalism."
A Wonderful Classic
Rick D. Barszcz | bristol, ct United States | 04/10/2002

"What is it about 1959? They made some great films including "The Miracle" my personal favorite of ALL times.But take a nice simple story, add some toe-tapping music, mix in brillant actors like Garner and Wood and you have the makings of a wonderful, memorialbe, teary-eyed classic film that will give you a smile on your face.The unfortunate thing is the likes of this will never be duplicated. Hollywood of today has lost all sense of real entertainment. BUY this one folks,,,,you won't be sorry. I just wish it would come out in DVD."
