Re: Decent Films
What’s your expert opinion (and quick ratings) on the following movies?
- My Fair Lady
- Mary Poppins
- The Great Mouse Detective
- Gunga Din
- The Lady Vanishes (old Hitchcock one, not the ’79 remake!)
Much as I love both Audrey Hepburn and Julie Andrews, I’m afraid I’m not a big fan of My Fair Lady or Mary Poppins. Both are gorgeous to look at — the films, I mean — and I can understand why people love them, but they don’t work for me. It’s possible and even likely that I will write reviews of both of them in the months to come.
I have only hazy memories of The Great Mouse Detective and The Lady Vanishes, but they’re positive hazy memories. Gunga Din, alas, I have never seen.
