Up to now I have only seen about half an hour of it (blu ray) but
that has been enough to tell me that it is going to be great.
The image is very good the sound is fine. The acting is terrific.
This is some unusual film. A film to be cherished for that and other reasons.
The soundtrack by elmer Bernstein has echoes of his Magnificent 7 score
and that can only be a good thing.
Okay it may not follow the book precisely That idea used to be a problem
for me. Now I am just interested to see how a book is adapted.
This is a FILM and must be judged as a film.
Debut of Tina Louise and she is a very good actor as well as everything else!
I am positive this film is going to match up to the opening.
I am looking forward to the rest of it immensely. Cannot wait in fact.
Finished watching the film now and my enthusiasm is
undiminished. This film has all he virtues of its fifties origins.
It is loaded with depths of human drama and humanity.
No psychopaths here. Just men and women with human
weaknesses and desires. The sexual elements seem all the
stronger for being portrayed with that fifties restraint.
Comedy, drama and sex they are all here in abundance.
And most satisfying of all, a resolution that is also typically
fifties- style. A film to be watched again!...and again.
The black & white film, which came out in 1958, has a slightly different storyline than the book; the ending is entirely different. An awful lot of the racy bits and dialogue are excluded completely, though the gals do plenty of smouldering, pouting and teasing.
Nevertheless, the acting is first class from all the cast and the storyline is fine, even if they are a bit of a strange bunch in terms of their affections toward each other. The star for me is Robert Ryan who puts in a sterling performance of Ty Ty Walden
The film is still well worth a watch and is quite witty in places as well. Pluto Swint (Buddy Hackett) is the comic figure and he does a fine job. The three women in the plot are all real good looking gals; you can see why Ty Ty is so proud of um.
The film is an `OK' for me whilst the book packed a punch - I very much preferred the book, but I wouldn't put anyone off spending a couple of hours watching this film as it's harmless and enjoyable enough, if nowhere near a classic.
All the characters in this movie are cardboard caricatures of stereotypical Southern hicks. With the exception of Griselda, played by Tina Louise, they are all mentally subnormal and almost everything they do and think makes no sense at all.
The one redeeming element of this dismal failure is Tina Louise's playing of the sexy Griselda. Her performance, combining eroticism with dignity, is most surprising partly because it was her first screen role and partly because God's Little Acre was directed by Anthony Mann who showed repeatedly throughout his career that he was a poor director of women.
This DVD from Cornerstone is a low quality product. The film is presented in the wrong aspect ratio and the picture quality is only slightly better than VHS.
This Cornerstone DVD can be recommended only to people who admire Tina Louise.
