Bucket List Update
Academy Award Nominated Movies
1942 The Talk of the Town
starring: Cary Grant and Jean Arthur
plot – Grant is accused of arson and hides out in a cottage. Arthur is the owner of the cottage and catches Grant, but keeps his secret. The new tenant arrives early and Grant pretends to be the gardener. A good story.
I liked this story, and Grant and Arthur are wonderful in their roles. It is predictable, but I liked it anyway.
1943 Madame Curie
starring: Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Van Johnson, and Margaret O’Brien
plot – The story of the joined lives of two brilliant scientists: Marie and Pierre Curie, and how they discovered a new element, radium. The pair earned the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics.
I learned so much from this movie. Garson and Pidgeon were outstanding as the amazing scientists. The movie showed the ways they struggled to find radium and prove it existed to the scientific world.
1946 The Razor’s Edge
starring: Tyrone Power, Gene Tierney, John Payne, Anne Baxter, and Clifton Webb.
plot – This is the story of wealth, greed, jealousy, and a person who longs to understand where he fits in the world.
This was a great movie! I find this movie to be one that really makes you evaluate the choices people make in their lives, and how they have to deal and live with the consequences of their actions.
1940 Sergeant York
starring: Gary Cooper, Joan Leslie, and Walter Brennan
plot – A Tennessee mountain man named York initially is a conscientious objector to fighting in WWI, but has to go anyway. After deep thought, he fights for his country and is a hero. This is a true story.
I loved this movie! Cooper is amazing as this American hero. I remember my Dad talking about this movie when I was a kid. He loved a good war movie.
