Theatre of the overly dramatic

I like old movies, and try to appreciate them compared to their own times, but this one was hard to watch. Ronald Colman plays an actor who begins to take on the personality of his role, unfortunately his latest role is Othello. You know where this movie is going from the first few minutes and then it is painfully long too it's conclusion. It all seems overacted and melodramatic, which is fine ... read more

Anthony John is an actor whose life is strongly influenced by the characters he plays. When he's playing comedy, he's the most enjoyable person in the world, but when he's playing drama, it's terrible to be around him. That's the reason why his wife Brita divorced him; although she still loves him and works with him, she couldn't stand living with him anymore. So when Anthony accepts to play Othello, he devotes himself entirely to the part, but it soon overwhelms him and with each day his mind gets filled more and more with Othello's murderous jealousy.

"21.2. Shakespearea vetävä näyttelijä vetää metodinäyttelynsä niin yli, että hän alkaa muuttua murhanhimoiseksi mustasukkaiseksi tappajaksi. Järjen menettäminen kuvastetaan elokuvassa lähinnä siten, että päähenkilö alkaa sönkätä pirtelökeihästä kesken arkisten rutiiniensa. Sanomassa voisi olla jotain tarttumapintaa, mutta Wanha Hollywood pilaa kaiken. Aikakautensa elokuville tyypillisesti 60-vuotiaan miehen ja hieman yli kaksikymppisen naisen suhteessa ei ole mitään omi"
