Movies directed by George Cukor

Little Women

Little Women (1933)   3/53/53/53/53/5

115 mins     Drama, Family, Romance      

The 1933 version of "Little Women" is in fact the fourth version I have watched and in some ways you could say that I have watched them back to front having first watched the 1994 version, then the 1978 TV mini-series which w...

Sylvia Scarlett

Sylvia Scarlett (1935)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

When "Sylvia Scarlett" was released way back in 1935 it was the first of 4 movies which Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made together but was more notable for being a flop. The public didn't get and to be honest I can see wh...

Holiday

Holiday (1938)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

It's quite sad that it takes a movie over 70 years old to put a smile on my face and keep it there from start to finish but that is the case of "Holiday" or "Free to Live" as it is also known. More remarkably is that "Holiday...

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz (1939)   5/55/55/55/55/5

101 mins     Adventure , Family, Fantasy, Musical      

Usually when a movie has had several directors it spells out disaster, a jumbled mismatch of styles and ideas but then "The Wizard of Oz" is the exception to the rule as despite working its way through various directors and a...

The Philadelphia Story

The Philadelphia Story (1940)   5/55/55/55/55/5

112 mins     Comedy, Romance      

What can you say about a movie which regularly features in the top half of almost every important top 100 movie list other than it is great. "The Philadelphia Story" is without a doubt a brilliant movie a 5 out of 5 which des...

Keeper of the Flame

Keeper of the Flame (1942)   3/53/53/53/53/5

100 mins     Drama      

For me the best Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn movies were those where they played warring partners, where the chemistry and wicked banter would fly between them and off of the screen. As such I just didn't enjoy "Keeper...

A Double Life

A Double Life (1947)   4/54/54/54/54/5

104 mins     Crime, Drama      

During my time as a movie reviewer I have occasionally mentioned that an actor hasn't just performed a role but he has become the role, delivering every aspect of the character as if it was part of him. That is the basis of "...

Adam

Adam's Rib (1949)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn made an impressive 9 movies together and out of those 9 "Adam's Rib" is one of the best. With Tracy and Hepburn paired up as a married couple who find themselves on different sides of the c...

Pat and Mike

Pat and Mike (1952)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Maybe because Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn were so good together, with such great chemistry and made everything seem so natural and easy that I find "Pat and Mike" a little to easy going. That doesn't mean that it isn'...

Bhowani Junction

Bhowani Junction (1956)   3/53/53/53/53/5

110 mins     Drama      

I know I have mentioned this before but I will say it again as history lessons at school bored me senseless and I am pretty sure that Britain's departure from India back in the 1940s was not even covered. Now that makes watch...

Lust for Life

Lust for Life (1956)   4/54/54/54/54/5

122 mins     Biography, Drama      

As a child my movie experiences were dominated by whatever was being shown on TV and as such certain movies such as "Star Wars", "Superman", "The Sound of Music" and "The Great Escape" dominated them thanks to their frequent ...

Let

Let's Make Love (1960)   3/53/53/53/53/5

119 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

Technically "Let's Make Love" was Marilyn Monroe's penultimate movie, filming of "Something's Got to Give" was never completed, and whilst she delivers a fun and occasionally memorable performance "Let's Make Love" is not an ...

The Corn Is Green

The Corn Is Green (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

93 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

"The Corn Is Green" is based on the biographical play by Emlyn Williams and over the years the central role of Miss Moffat has been played on stage by Ethel Barrymore and in an earlier movie by Bette Davis. Because of that th...
