King Vidor United States, 1952

Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

It's interesting how King Vidor who made beautiful silent films and highly respectable and unashamedly emotional dramas in the thirties and forties ended up creating the entertainingly feverish kitschfests "Beyond the Forest," "The Fountainhead," "Duel In The Sun" and "Ruby Gentry." Even with ridiculous scripts, he gives you something to watch. Also, from the evidence of his silent comedies, he had a sense of humor.
