Movie Reviews (1901-50) (50 movies items)

" The rich oil family with problems of alcohol, free sex and a death down some long, winding stairs makes this essential soap opera drama and a film someone must clearly have seen before they made "Dallas". Not sure one can say any characters are that bright though but the drama is surely fastpaced and with an actual (almost) ending for all characters which is more than most long-running soaps ever get."

"Douglas Sirk is one of the most divisive directors of Hollywood's Golden Age and it is easy to understand both sides of the debate. While many applaud him for his full-blooded, passionate but subversive approach to melodrama, others condemn it as trashy proto-Soap garbage. It is easy, especially in 1956's pulpy family saga 'Written on the Wind', to see the seeds of 'Dallas' and 'Dynasty' being sown but just as those series held the attention of millions with sensationalist plots filtered through"
