The Man in the Sky

Pure entertainment
It is unforgivable that a film should be made in black and white, that is devoid of CGI and populated by first class actors who can do more that the strutting, posing and mumbling so evident in today's films. OK. I know this was made in 1957 but for 80 or so engrossing minutes I was captivated by the dialogue driven story. Jack Hawkins and the delectable Elizabeth Sellers remind us what is missing in today's popcorn extravaganzas where virtually the same story is recycled, action replaces dialogue and the 'STARS' just stand there trying to look either menacing or provocative. Actors need not apply.

Highly recommended film that reminds us what we are missing.
