Movie Reviews

Pleasant movie,poor print.

"The movie itself is by no means a classic - similar comic confections were served up far more enticingly by the likes of Garson Kanin,Wesley Ruggles and Ernst Lubitsch - but Niven and Young are effective enough,and the idea at the heart of the movie is strong enough to survive the mediocre script.The print,however,is dreadful -it is like watching the movie through the bottom of a glass- and,as the video is recorded in EP mode (why?),your VCR may well struggle with its tracking for the 110 minutes of the entertainment.Why this is labelled as a "Collector's Edition" is a mystery:avoid this edition,go for the other one and watch a slight but amiable comedy."

"Lighthearted, predictable, but entirely enjoyabe. Zazu Pitts is the glue that holds a good deal of the premise together. This is a film that epitomizes the productions of it's time."

"This review is for the movie and not the format--there was not a place to review on the DVD page. Viewers have complained about the quality of the VHS, but aside from that the whole flim was shot in what I call "soft glow" a vaseline on the lens type effect and it does add a mysterious dream-like quality that is at times beautiful.
David Niven plays an ACE magician that enchants audiences. His Houdini-like stunts seem impossible. Loretta Young's character is his capable assistant and they have much on-stage chemistry for the audience to behold. They are very complementary to each other's needs so they get married--today, I suppose we would call that co-dependency. They have a circle of friends that include such fine character actors as Broderick Crawford, Eve Arden and Zasu Pitts filling the scenes with gay banter. Niven trys to push the limit on each new stunt, the most outlandish being his trick of jumping out of an airplane while his hands are too confined by a straightjacket and handcuffs to pull the rip cord on his chute until the very last moment. Each time he makes it back safely, nail-biting, hand-wringing Loretta makes him promise it will be the last time he does the stunt. He is addicted to pushing the limit and can't stop. Finally she walks out on him, unwilling to go through the torture any longer, and marries Broderick Crawford on the rebound. He is safe and boring. Niven almost dies when his chute, with him attached, lands in a lake. He is pulled out right before he drowns. He has tried to get Loretta back even to the point of getting into fisticuffs with Crawford, and she runs to his side as he is injured on the dock. She leaves Crawford when Niven realizes that his scrape with death was what he needed to finally make him want to settle down in a picturesque country home with Loretta and give up magic for good. What is great about this movie is valiant attempts at magical special effects for the time in which it was made: hypnotic trances, double vision, aerial photography from the plane, mysterious tricks of the eye (camera). At times cheesey, at times not--always entertaining to the viewer. They also did a good job training the magician's bunnies to fall in love with each other at the end of the movie."
Poor film, poor print

""Eternally Yours" is a weak romantic comedy notable only for the rapport of leads David Niven, as a magician, and Loretta Young, as his neglected wife. With Walter Wanger producing, Tay Garnett directing and a sterling supporting cast, the film promises much much more than it delivers. It is tedious and predictable.

The print is dreadful. The picture is murky at times, the soundtrack woolly and there are endless splices when the continuity jumps. Don't waste your money."
