The Deep Blue Sea

“Anatole Litvak isn’t exactly the most exciting film director of the studio era, he’s a man happier to simply point-and-shoot and does filmed versions of plays, but he always managed to get great work out of his actors. James Cagney showed range in City for Conquest, Olivia de Havilland was fabulous in The Snake Pit and Ingrid Bergman had a comeback with Anastasia. Following this logical through line, The Deep Blue Sea is beautifully acted but awkwardly filmed.

Here is a story that seemed like a great choice for a hauntingly filmed black-and-white character study, but is filmed in CinemaScope and bright Technicolor. Much of the intimacy is gone, which harms the film’s overall impact. As does the Production Code’s enforced censorship which dulls much of the erotic longing” read more
