Any good?


Is this movie any good?

reply

I think it's very good. I'm pretty sure I have it taped from the last time it was on TCM. Of course, whether someone likes a movie or not depends on the person but I think this is one of Elizabeth Taylor's best ones.

I thought the opening scene in the bookstore didnt make any sense. A strange woman walks into the bookstore and knows everything about some rich guy from Ceylon? Goofy.

It fell mostly flat in my opinion. I have nothing against Elephant Walk on a technical level but certain plot points did not work out. The supposive mutal attraction between Ruth and Dick seemed one sided on Dick's part and the climax were the Elephants destroy the house came across as a feeble attempt to make them look bad when under the circumstances their actions were not surprising.

Nope.
Seems in small English towns everyone knows everyone else. A stranger in town would have everyone's curiosity buzzing.
Maybe not so much now. People have become less sociable.
