Movie Reviews

Steve McQueen as a singer!
Jack Purcell | Placitas, NM USA | 05/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is one I'd put up beside The Last Picture Show, A Small Town In Texas and a number of other portrayals of small town life in the US circa 1950s. The difference lies with the Remick/McQueen combo, the harmony, the tension and the incredible intensity of Steve McQueen at his absolute best. The McQueen character here is a small-town young man from a lousy homelife, grown up, gone to prison for a brief time, poor and trying to make something of his life with his young wife, Lee Remick and their pre-school daughter, Margaret Rose. McQueen's past plays heavily against him; his hangups, pride, independence and general hard-headedness lead him into troubles with the entire town and the law enforcement community while the endearing Remick and Margaret Rose watch in tender helpless desolation.This movie belongs on the best-seller list with all the other oldies. It's a better one than most."
Lee Remick upstages Steve McQueen
Thomas Kelly Perkins | Austin, TX | 10/26/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very accurate portrait of not quite aquiring the American Dream. An often overlooked gem, this film deals with misplaced passions and how they can affect the people you love. I have to give Lee Remick the award for this one. The long-suffering wife of an ex-con (McQueen), she portrays the quentissential southern lady who is trying to be optimistic, in spite of the hand that life has dealt her. I went to school in Houston with the girl who played their daughter (Kimberly Block) and I remember when she was absent in Kindergarten to make this film. Steve does a marvelous job in making us both feel sorry for the character and being quite repulsed at his antics. But kudos have to go to Lee Remick on this one. God bless you both!"
Remick is the heart and soul of this film
Jack Purcell | 08/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Horton Foote's spare and sad drama is given deep heart and soul by the performance of Lee Remick. While Steve McQueen gives the film brawn and brashness, Remick illustrates the wonderful, small moments that make Foote's work so memorable. Remick's scenes with her young daughter -- as she shyly recalls meeting her husband at a dance and later as they suffer through the storms of McQueen's demons -- are touching, warm and finely drawn. And Remick, in her scenes with McQueen, shows the quiet strength that is so captivating in Foote's heroines. And director Mulligan is wise enough to give her talents full resonance. For the memorable combination of Lee Remick and Horton Foote, do not miss this movie."

"this movie really hit me hard when I saw it for the first time. (hit me even harder when I saw it the second time) the black and white gives this film the full efect of a dark drama. Very sad but marvelous story, well done acting, and very beautiful scenery. There are some very touching scenes in this picture, as well as some really depressing ones. Lee Remick did a marvelous job on this picture. The little girl was very good too. And last but DEFINITLY not least... Steve McQueen. I have to say, he was the most gorgeous man ever!! he looked absolutly stunning throughout this whole movie. He did amazing playing the drifting musician with a terrible past. You can really feel his emotions coming off the screen. This is one of the deepest and most depressing movie I have ever seen and this is a must!!!!"
