Mogambo

1 year ago at Apr 12 15:07
Two decades after he originated the role in Red Dust, Clark Gable reprised it in the loose remake Mogambo. But a funny thing happened on the way to Mogambo, Gable was no longer the prime, alpha-male radiating star that he once was, and his presence is outshone and out-acted by the two female leads, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly.

It’s not just that Gable looks a little too old to bel... read more

"26.1. Clark Gablen tähdittämä seikkailuelokuva muistuttaa hyvin paljon lapsuudensuosikkiani Hataria. Safariseikkailu on jees, ja kolmiodraaman lopetus, jossa Clark Gable vetää kännit ja aukoo naamaansa naiselle niin kauan, että tämä lähtee itkien pois on erinomaista vaihtelua sille, että jonkun on kuoltava koska ynynynynyn. John Fordin ohjauksek"

Mogambo

“Two decades after he originated the role in Red Dust, Clark Gable reprised it in the loose remake Mogambo. But a funny thing happened on the way to Mogambo, Gable was no longer the prime, alpha-male radiating star that he once was, and his presence is outshone and out-acted by the two female leads, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly.

It’s not just that Gable looks a little too old to believably play this role and inspire the erotic yearnings for the youthful Kelly and street-wise Gardner, but most of the magic in Red Dust was the palpable chemistry between Gable, Jean Harlow and Mary Astor. Red Dust featured a commentary on class and power being a part of sexual attraction – Gable’s rubber plantation runner idealizes the owner’s wife for being a real lady and seeing their affair” read more

"13.9.2009, TV Tykkäsin alkuperäisleffaa (eli Red Dustia vuodelta -32) enemmän, ehkäpä osittain ihanien afrikkalaisten sademetsämaisemien takia, tarina kun ei ole kauheasti siitä muuttunut vaikka alkuperäinen esittääkin asiansa hieman ytimekkäämmin. Näyttelyä kehtaisin väittää täs hieman paremmaksi ja plussaa myös noiden alkuperäisheimojen ruudulletuomisesta, se antaa mukavasti lisäväriä kokonaisuuteen."
