Woman's World 1954

In Woman’s World each of three women (Lauren Bacall, June Allyson, and Arlene Dahl) uses a different facet of feminine wiles and graces to help their husbands when an auto executive searching for a general manager makes his decision based on his impression of their wives. The right man gets the job despite being with the wrong woman. Interesting glimpse at social roles of the mid-’50s, with smart direction by Jean Negulesco.

Desert Rats, The (TCF 1953, Richard Burton, James Mason)

Published

By

The Desert Rats Richard Burton

In The Desert Rats British commando captain Richard Burton takes charge of a hopelessly outnumbered but stubbornly defiant Australian division in their heroic stand against Field Marshal Rommel in North Africa. Their new leader wastes no time in alienating his men, but the Australians prove themselves both plucky and amusing. Another sweeping evocation of the North Africa campaign (an undeniably photogenic setting), with James Mason’s Rommel once again lurking over the next dune.

Following The Desert Fox (1951), Fox Studios quickly assembled The Desert Rats to capitalize on the success of the earlier film. It made almost as much money as The Desert Fox, largely due to the re-appearance of James Mason as Rommel.
