A Movie With Bette Davis And Nazis Should Be Way Better
Before I started watching "Watch On The Rhine" I was thinking I hadn't seen it before, but then the opening scene looked familiar, and I realized I had seen it before only I had slept through most of it. Last night I was more determined to make it through the film, so whenever I felt myself nodding off I got up and jogged around the room. I got a good work out in. Movies adapted from plays frighten me because there is a strong chance that the performances and the dialog will not have been liberated from the stage on their way to the screen. I thought "Watch On The Rhine" suffered from a poor adaptation. It rarely felt like a movie to me. Much of the dialog and scenes went on way too long (and no I'm not judging this on the pacing of current movies). The actors entered and exited scenes like they were in a play. Most importantly I think the ending could have been stronger. I think it should have been revealed that Bodo was really Hermann Gohring in disguise.
