Aro Recommended People Will Talk


USA 1951, 105 minutes
Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Drama, Comedy


Aroview: Enjoyable and sophisticated allegory, disguised as a standard Hollywood romantic comedy, in which a humanitarian doctor (Grant) must contend with the moral hypocrisy of the Academic and American Ways.

Befriending various social outcasts and finally marrying a young pregnant woman, Grant attracts unwelcome suspicions and must skillfully tiptoe his way through a minefield of social perils. Sharply written (from the play by Curt Goetz), this is certainly up to the high standard of the dir.'s previous classic, ALL ABOUT EVE.
