USA 1963

 

  Taken away from Cassavetes by not very nice producer Kramer for some Hollywood-style re-editing, this is nevertheless clearly the work of one of cinema's greatest talents. Garland is the new teacher in a school for mentally handicapped children, who is touched by one child (Ritchey) in particular, and gets in trouble with the school's headmaster (Lancaster). Unusually for a Hollywood film, all the disabled children (apart from Ritchey) are actors with real disabilities. Occasionally bordering on the sentimental (never the problem of Cassavetes' independent work) this film nevertheless boasts fine performances and a magic touch by one of cinema's greatest humanists.

Comments:

This can be purchased in the Boxset with Cassavetes "Love Streams" but not individually at this time. Both discs in the set have player generated French subtitles that are not forced on many standard players (my computer DVD player for example) or are easily removed with many DVD duplication software programs (try DVDShrink).

This non-anamorphic image is very good - sharp, adhering to the 1.66 original aspect ratio, bright with good shadow detail.

As this is only a few extra Euros as opposed to buying Love Streams alone that is how we strongly recommend.
