The Heiress

4 years, 8 months ago at Feb 23 7:36
Olivia de Havilland is always at her greatest when her blushing complexion, innocent eyes and sweetness can be used to create tension with the characters that she portrays. When she can use our inherent bias towards idealizing her to portray insanity (The Snake Pit), bitter strength and intelligence (Gone With the Wind), or, even, cold-blooded murderess (Hush, Hush Sweet Charolette) she creates a ... read more

It seemed unfair that the richly beautiful Olivia De Havilland played someone she was entirely not: that of an unattractive, old-maid-bound heiress. There wasn't even anyone to compare her to in the movie. No Elizabeth Taylor or Hedy Lamarr to challange the affection of dashing Montgomery Clift.

Of course, this is an acting movie. One that garnered her an acting award. And that final ... read more

Description: In 1840's New York Catherine lives with her father, Dr. Sloper. Her mother died some years before, and Dr. Sloper still idolizers her, and never misses an opportunity to compare her daughter to her -- a comparison the daughter can never win. When Morris Townsend, a handsome but penniless young man, comes along, and woos and wins his d ... (more)

" "The Heiress" is undoubtedly good period movie with astonishing performance by Olivia de Havilland, but it wasn't enjoyable for me. During the most of the movie I was annoyed by the relationships (and personas) and ultimately it left me embittered and depressed. The ending came sort of sudden so it's a bit unsatisfying for me (while many others find it brilliant). However, my love for period movies and appreciation for good acting ensures it a high rating.

"The climax of William Wyler's film is one of the most compelling and powerful ever made. Oscar-winning Olivia de Havilland in the lead role plays the 1850s era plain-looking, shy, mid-twenties heiress daughter Catherine Sloper who lives in her wealthy, tyrannically abusive father's (Ralph Richardson) elegant, lavishly-furnished mansion at 16 Washington Square. Fortune-hunting, charming, penniless suitor Morris Townsend (Montgomery Clift) courts and exploits the desperate, love-starved needs of t"

"23.5. Melkoisen upea elokuva nuoresta naisesta, jota koko kaupungin ylimystö ylenkatsoo, koska tämä on ujo ja kaikkien mielestä hyvin tylsän näköinen (siis Olivia de Havilland, tylsän näköinen, ???, ????????). Paikalle tulee kuitenkin Montgomery Cliftin esittämä adonis, jolla ei ole rahaa, mutta joka vakuuttelee kuolematonta rakkauttaan ensimmäistä kertaa elämässään huomiota saavalle Havillandille. Tytön isäpappa ei tietenkään luota hurmuriin, vaan tekee kaikkensa estä"
