FILM OF THE WEEK
Otto Preminger’s IN HARMS WAR. I know this is a John Wayne picture, and what am I doing watching one of those? Well… it’s an solid movie, and the anamorphic camerawork is outstanding.
It covers from curiously interesting social commentary for film from 1960; such male sexual entitlement/borderline sexual assault, female empowerment in the dating ritual, and other class-based political commentary.
Kirk Douglas plays an unexpected role, too; which only he’d have the balls to play considering he was still a big star at the time.
