EL CUARTO MANDAMIENTO (1942)

5 years, 12 months ago at Nov 23 13:31
The Magnificent Ambersons es el título original de esta película, nada que ver con el rídiculo "El cuarto mandamiento" español.

Sin ser la mejor película de su director, bajo mi punto de vista sí es comparable -e incluso superior- a su más prestigiosa Ciudadano Kane.

Según el propio Welles, su personal historia de la decadencia de una aristocrática ... read more

The young, handsome, but somewhat wild Eugene Morgan wants to marry Isabel Amberson, daughter of a rich upper-class family, but she instead marries dull and steady Wilbur Minafer. Their only child, George, grows up a spoiled brat. Years later, Eugene comes back, now a mature widower and a successful automobile maker. After Wilbur dies, Eugene again asks Isabel to marry him, and she is receptive. But George resents the attentions paid to his mother, and he and his aunt Fanny try to sabotage the romance.
Release date: 10 July 1942

" Even if the movie was cut down and almost destroyed by a crazy film-producer with no creative mind this is a fantastic drama with excellent acting and memorable imagery. That this Orson Welles movie is another of his many forgotten gems that get overshadowed by not being "Citizen Kane" is also disappointing since it is a masterpiece even if the ending was changed by the studio.

"Orson Welles displays a refined touch in this 1942 costume drama about a nineteenth-century family's struggles with the changing times."

"LIFE SUPPORT Agnes Moorehead One of the most arresting aspects of 1942’s The Magnificent Ambersons is the creative dance between supporting actress Agnes Moorehead and the film’s director Orson Welles. Welles sets up Moorehead’s Aunt Fanny character visually by costuming her in heavy, buttoned-up funereal black gowns, placing her in shadow, in the background of dark hallways, or revealing her—from a low angle—eavesdropping above a stairwell. In introductory scenes, she is marginalized"
