Don'r Remake This Film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adam's Rib [DVD]  (DVD)
Hepburn and Tracey give the performance of their lives. The film maybe stagey and come accross as rather theatrical, but that's what makes it. Both the actors give this film a pace and energy which is very difficult to reproduce on film, it's as though they are giving a live performace and this is what makes it so immediate and, shall I say, so modern. Marvellous film, one of my top ten favourites.
Also worthy of note is the photography - a well-lit crystal clear clarity pervades the whole film. The location shots are beautifully executed and realised. Stunning camerawork throughout the film.
If there is a remake of this film, I shall freak; it is a 'Wonder' of Hollywood; no one wants to rebuild the Pyramids of Egypt, The Acropolis...Why remake a wonder, it stands alone, it stands the test of time. Hollywood did this with 'Father of the Bride', the remake was a nightmare of contrived humour and schmalz.
This film such be put on general release in cinemas.
I guess I have said it all, really.
