Tom Jones (1963)


tj“Heroes, whatever high ideas we may have of them, are mortal and not divine. We are all as God made us, and many of us much worse.” – Narrator

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Jun 2013)

Brief Synopsis – A bastard born in the 1700’s England follows a woman he falls in love with all the way to London, getting into lots of trouble along the way.

My Take on it – I had never seen this movie before and doubt I will ever see it again. This is one of the worst Best Picture winners in my opinion.

I didn’t care much for any of the characters or what would happen to them thru the course of the movie.

Winner of 4 Oscars (out of 10 nominations) Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay and Music. It lost Best actor, Best Supporting actor, 3 Best supporting actress noms, and Best Art Direction.

Still think that The Great Escape (1963) was the best picture released in ’63.

Bottom Line – Boring movie. Cant understand how it won Best picture. Stay away

Rating – Razzie Worthy
