Cavalcade (1933)

index“There should never be any good reason for neglecting someone that you love.” – Jane Marryot

Number of Times Seen – 1  (18 Jun 2013)

Brief Synopsis – The chronicled story of the Marryot family and their neighbors the Bridges from 1899 thru 1933 in England.

My Take on it – I am in shock that this movie won Best picture since it is so bad.  I didn’t much care for the characters that much and the acting was too over the top (granted it’s 1933 acting).  I suppose that the other nominees were even worse if this movie was able to win, and I highly doubt that I will ever see any of the other nominees so I will keep assuming that this turkey was the best of the crop.

The ONLY think nice I can say about this movie was that it seems to be the precursor for epic movies that span many years of its characters. Many great movies since follow that idea and this at least gave us a glimpse into what the future of movies had in store.

Winner of 3 of 4 Oscars (Picture, Director and Art Direction). It lost Best Actress

Bottom Line – Terrible movie. The worst Best picture Ive seen so far

Rating – Razzie Worthy
