The Spirit Of St. Louis Review


Very Good
Charles Lindbergh and Jimmy Stewart -- "Americana" doesn't have a better definition than these two larger-than-life characters. The film is a straightforward tale of the making of Lucky Lindy, focusing on his 1927 Trans-Atlantic flight from New York to Paris, 33 1/2 harrowing hours that inaugurated the era of flight. Billy Wilder's movie isn't particularly daring in its telling, but as a piece of American -- and world -- history, The Spirit of St. Louis is something everyone should see.

Save The Tiger Review


Excellent
Jack Lemmon won the Best Actor Oscar for his harrowing portrayal of Harry Stoner, who at first seems your average self-loathing businessman, but soon enough proves to have a batallion of skeletons in his closet. Harry's clothing business, it seems, isn't doing so well -- and in fact, he's so deep in debt he's ready to burn down the factory for the insurance money. Meanwhile, as the film plays out over a little over a day in Harry's life, he nearly breaks down on stage as WWII flashbacks nearly put a quick end to his latest line of fashions, a hooker just about kills one of his business associates, and Harry's world nearly falls apart. Lemmon is undoubtedly the centerpiece here, keeping up with an overdone story and ultimately redeeming the film admirably.
