Brief Synopsis – A teenager in the early 1930’s dreams of going to Hollywood and when she gets there, she quickly finds out it isn’t as she had expected.

My Take on it – This movie is one of Robert Redford’s first roles, but it still was prior to his big successes.

Natalie Wood is suppose to be s 15 year old teenager here, but she doesn’t seem to quite fit in the role.

I must admit that this movie was extremely boring for me and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t manage to quite figure out if they are trying to justify or deify how things worked back then.

I’m sure there are those of you who perhaps liked and understood this better than I did, so feel free to try and explain it if you want. 🙂

Bottom Line – Very boring movie that isn’t quite sure as to what it is wants to say. Redford and Wood are good together, but neither is perfect here.

Rating – Razzie Worthy

  1. I can not stand this film. I’ve tried to sit through the whole thing and it is exactly as you’ve said: b-o-r-i-n-g. Neither Wood nor Redford are charismatic enough to carry the movie, in my opinion. They should have made Christopher Plummer the main character and built the script around him. For pete sake.
