« The Detective Hero (by Larry Epstein) | Main | Get the Hell Into Dodge [by Jerry Williams] »

October 09, 2010


Frederic March is under-appreciated as an actor these days, I think. In "Inherit the Wind," he was amazing. Compare a picture of him from the movie and a picture of William Jennings Bryan. He was great as an exuberant, overwhelming, and big-hearted Robert Browning in "The Barretts of Wimpole Street;" scary as hell in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." And quite wonderful in "Best Years," especially in how the brutality his character has seen and perhaps participated in runs just under the surface and torments him as he tries to readjust to civilian life. I'd watch a Frederic March movie any day.
