An Unusual Melodrama - Christmas Holiday review by Cato

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2018

Based on a story by Somerset Maugham, this taut thriller has the benefit of Deanna Durbin playing a very serious part for a change, together with Gene Kelly who likewise plays very straight (but still uses those eyes) as a very naughty boy. Gail Sondergaard also fits into the story very ably as the mother of Kelly, and altogether this film, directed by Robert Siodmak, almost reaches the blackest of film noir. Very recommended.
