[Highly rated reviewer]IF THEY GAVE OSCARS IN 1946 (DID THEY ?) THIS WOULD SURLEY HAVE WON AN OSCAR BIT SLOW TO START AND A PREDICTABLE ENDING BUT WHAT ACTING.. JEAN KENT ...A REVELATION ..

THE GYPSY GIRL (JEAN KENT) IS IN LOVE WITH HIM ... AND IT ALL GOES ON AND ON DIAMOND NECKLACES. WONDERFUL CHASES (ON HORSEBACK ). AND EVERYTHING FALLS INTO PLACE HENCHMEN (ROBERT HELPMAN) WONDERFULLY OUTRAGEOUS ACTING ...(WOULD THEY DARE ACT LIKE THIS TODAY )..

A favourite actor!By a customer from Cardiff, Wales , 01 Jun 2012When I was younger I used to look forward to any film which had Stewart Granger in. I thought he was really 'it' Being a pensioner now, I look back at these films and it brings back so many memories and I am so glad that the films are being made available by Tesco DVD. The films were clean and no nasty swearwords either.
Captain BoycottBy a customer from Suffolk , 03 Feb 2011I have now seen this film twice, once in 1947 when it first came out and again two nights ago. My first viewing was in my home city of Liverpool which was dubbed the 'capital of Ireland'. I had two Irish grandparents who emigrated to England in 1878, just prior to the setting of the film.
It had a profound effect on me in 1947 (I was fifteen years old) and seemed just as powerful at my recent viewing. I had remembered whole scenes and was sometimes anticipating them. The historic detail is excellent in the film and the acting by a large and mostly Irish cast was first class. Stewart Granger's similated brogue held up well with the range of Abbey Theatre stalwarts who surorunded him. This is in contrast to the accents attempted today by othewise fine actors.
The laurels must however go to Mervyn Johns as the scheming land agent who pulled Boycott's strings and Noel Purcell as the revolutionary though cowardly headmaster who was pulling who was pulling the tenants towards violence.
The black and white images of the film were so strong and startling that I could not imagine it being betterin colour.
Stewart Granger Collection - CaravanBy Diddynan (1 review) from Lancashire , 22 Sep 2010We really enjoyed this film. What a man! What women! A reminder of days when films were great without the need for explicit sex, violence or swearing!! Yes we knew how it would end - but a charming film to make you relax. A feel-good story with a good ending. Why do films today need sex, violence and swearing? A TRULY GOOD FILM needs none of those!! A film I would highly recommend. Good viewing everyone.
Not in 'LOVE' with this 'STORY'...By a customer from Wimborne , 01 May 2010As a Stewart Granger fan, I so wanted to see this movie but... am now wishing that I hadn't bothered. A love story set around the rugged cornish coastline, with a wonderful storyline & soundtrack, in fact a movie just waiting for a touch of 21st century Hollywood magic. But sadly, this version is ruined by the cardboard sets, tired script & poor acting. A very typical 1940's black & white movie.
Fail, Caesar!By a customer from London , 25 Jan 2009With Claude Rains and Vivien Leigh taking the leads in this George Bernard Shaw play, and a supporting cast made up of Flora Robson, Stewart Granger and Frances L 'Did I do right, Pip?' Sullivan from Great Expectations, it would be a crazy film buff who didn't make this a priority viewing, right? Er - wrong.
The whole thing feels very stagey and the direction never gains any momentum. It's hard to believe it comes from the same era as Casablanca or Great Expectations, it just feels so twee, almost like a secondary school play. I like Rains but prefer him in his sly, side-on roles rather than benign and heroic. Vivien Leigh is a pouty, annoying Cleopatra, very much like Jean Simmons as young Estella (okay, that was a year after). All you wish for her is that Caeser would put her on the receiving end of a dozen rough Roman soldiers.
Otherwise this is all fodder for the Carry On and Monty Python brigade. There's even a young Robert Morley lisping the name of Caeser, and an old dodderer who is a dead ringer for the geezer who helps hide the People's Front of Judea in Life of Brian. Look out for John 'We're doooomed!' Laurie as a centurian at two minutes past the first hour. Looking old even then.
Things do pick up a bit towards the end, with ruminations on power and mortality, but until then it seemed a bit shallow. All in all, a slog.
