The Sea Chse
I bought this film because it featured Tab Hunter, whose career I was exploring. Produced in 1955, it was primetime for everyone in the cast with John Wayne and Lana Turner heading the bill.
The film never garnered any awards for several good reasons. One was the direction. Slow-moving and patronizingly emotional, other films in 1955 left this one in a long shadow. At 117 minutes long, it was an endurance test from almost the very beginning.
Another important reason for the film's artistic malaise is the absense of cohesiveness among the cast. The film lacked a necessary spark to keep an audience attentive over a long story.
Lana Turner began with an uncertain purpose to the film, but quickly turned-out to be the glue. A dated performance, she none-the-less served as the unifying force that gave a certain raison d'etra to the delivery of lines between characters. John Wayne seemed lost, and struggling to add subtance.
There's not a lot of reason to own this film. for most people, it will take up too much shelf space. As a study in career progressions of castmembers, it takes on greater meaning as a way of appreciating their finer achievements.
