5.0 out of 5 stars Simply A Classic Movie 2 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
I have the DVD of this the imported korean version.I bet there is a better copy out there but this is good and the sound is perfect aswell.
Made in 1940 it is still as brilliant now as it was upon its realease.Vivien Leigh in her firt role since Gone With The Wind plays Mara a young ballet dancer who meets Captain Roy Cronin (Robert Taylor)in an air raid warning on Waterloo Bridge in World War 1.They fall in love instantly and agree to marry one day before he has to go back to fight in France.They dont get married as Captain Cronin is called back into action.Months go by and Mara reads that Cronin is dead in a newspaper.After loseing everything she turns prostitute though not said once in the movie you just know that she has.In a chance meeting Capain Cronin returns and finds Mara.They agree to go to live with his mother Scotland but a terrible thing happens (i wont spoil it for the people who havent seen it yet.
Idont think this film has even seen the day of light since its realese nominated for 2 Academy Awards.It has a massvie following in China but has never got a dvd realease in uk or america there is a very rare and hard to get old of copy by a russian company.Overal this is one of my fav movies of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great romantic tragedies 1 Oct 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I have never understood why this film is so rarely acclaimed; it's a powerful tearjerker and the acting from Leigh and Taylor is brilliantly understated, with Leigh turning in a performance quite the contrary of her overblown, though equally superb, Scarlett O'Hara the previous year. The theme of Leigh as a prostitute is toned down from the book, though it is insinuated, but this is not to the detriment of the film, as it fits in with the understated performances. I would place this amongst the 10 greatest movies ever made.

By Andrea Bowhill VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
Waterloo Bridge (Made 1940) is set during World War I, it stars Vivien Leigh as Myra, who's profession at that time was a young ballerina in London, while looking for cover from another air raid she meets a soldier Roy Cronin (Robert Taylor) who's very carefree but also a romantic and is simply swept away by Myra's beauty. He sets about sweeping Myra off her feet gradually she realizes she in love for the first time ever. Myra is thrown out of her ballet company after it was discovered she was out after curfew, Roy then hears news he is soon to be called to the front line, wishing to be together Roy wastes no time in asking his uncle the Duke (C. Aubrey Smith) for her hand in marriage, unfortunately because of red tape during that time they are unable to wed. Roy goes to war but at a later date news reports back of his death, Myra is left in despair.

Myra attempts to ask for her old job back as a ballet dancer but is point blank refused to add to problems her friend Kitty (Virginia Field) is also fired for her outburst in support. Together they are left to make ends meet, Kitty finds work and helps Myra out at first but then Myra discovers Kitty is selling herself to pay the bills. Out of work, Myra eventually turns to the oldest profession to help out. By a haunted twist of fate the reports of Roy death were false he returns to Myra who sharply sets about to hide her past, but for how long can her secret remain hidden.

Directed by Mervyn LeRoy based on a play by Robert E. Sherwood screen play callaboration by S.N.Behrman, Hans Rameau and George Froeschel. The photography work on this film is beautifully done by Joseph Ruttenberg. It's also equalled with an incredible musical score created by Herbert Stothart (The Wizard of OZ is amongst his more famous film scores).

Format:DVD
Well you may not have heard of this film, but you will certainly know of Vivien Leigh, from (Gone with the wind).Set during the 2nd world war in London, a brief chance meeting with Robert Taylor son of very wealthy parents who have a home and land not similar to the Queen Anyway its Love at first sight, a proposal of marrage....Vivien L is a Dancer (Ballet that is)..........She is Sacked due to meetings with the love of her life, she falls on some very hard times with her best girlfriend also a Ballet dancer...They get into something unacceptable in those days. Vivien reads the paper while Robert Taylor is away she thinks he is dead killed in action. Her entire world falls apart she's in a complete daze. much Later he returns from the wars. he then explains it was an error. Do you think its plain sailing from here on...No Way. Vivien meets R.T parents Riddled with guilt and concience that drives her crazy, that only a person with honour and integrity would relate to...Not many people these days have real respect for each other, times have changed....But the ending WOW....BUY THIS....DVD...its brilliant...Also buy her other film ANNA KARENNINA...SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL...AND THE SWEETEST SMILE..David Grant

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic
They don't make 'em like this anymore.
But it drags its feet at times and, I think, the ending is disappointing. Great performance from Vivien Leigh. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A rare gem
Waterloo Bridge is one of those films that is rarely given an outing on TV and seems to be virtually unknown to many people, even those who are fans of the lead actors. Read more
