Description du produit
Muchos hombres y mujeres se vieron reflejados en esta impactante historia de esperanzas y sueños en la época de la postguerra, basada en el best seller de Sloan Wilson.
Gregory Peck encabeza el reparto como un dedicado padre de familia que renuncia a un trabajo trivial para entrar en el prometedor mundo de la publicidad. La presión en el trabajo aumenta al tiempo que lo hacen los problemas con su mujer (Jennifer Jones) y el exitoso joven ejecutivo debe decidir, tal como lo hizo su jefe (Fredric March), qué es más importante en la vida: la familia o el éxito..--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

His role is a businessman complacently working in a small firm in New York. He earns $7,000 a year at a time when that was considered good money, but not enough to grow on. Through a recommendation from a friend on the train, he accepts an interview for an AD agency with the potential of earning more money. His wife, played by Jennifer Jones (herself a great actress), pushes Greg Peck to earn more money so they can move to a better neighborhood. Despite having two children, a beautiful home, and a stable income, they are not happy. She tells him, "I can't stand living in this home!" I'm left to wonder why considering how nice it is. Greg's character is plagued with memories of his experiences in WWII. In Italy he had an affair with a local woman. In the Pacific he loses his close friend in combat. Both have extreme influences on his character as he tries to understand how to keep his family happy and together.
At the same time, his work in the AD agency is taking off. The president likes Greg, and we see hints how Greg may remind the president of the agency, played by the great Fredric March. We also learn about other characters in the film that play a significant role in the film. Fredric March is clearly the successful AD-man and head of a powerful agency. But his personal life is a wreck. His wife kicked him out of their home long ago, and their daughter refuses to go to college and is planning on marrying a much older man as a way of getting away from them both. It is heart-wrenching when we see Fredric March try and reason with his daughter and wife. He even explodes on Greg's character about what he sacrificed to get where he is.
In the end, Greg Peck must choose between his family and work-life. Although this film was made in 1956, it still rings true today by focusing on the important things that make a family strong and happy.
My father designed and produced aircraft during WW II so was not involved in combat other than seeing that our men had the best possible in the shortest length of time but I believe this movie could have explained my friend's fathers quite a bit, - my closest friend's father never talked about the war and repeatedly stated that he really didn't do anything, until he and I found a box of photographs (does an adult really think they can hide anything from a child?) his father had hidden away. He didn't really do anything except go from one island to another with a flamethrower on his back, burning out Japanese soldiers who refused to surrender, filling caves up with burning liquids, removing the bodies and moving on to the next cave or dug out. Island after Island across the Pacific. He couldn't talk about it and didn't want to remember it, then back to a shirt and tie and managing a production line for United Can Corp.
After 'nam I understood "If you don't know I can't explain it to you - and if you know I don't need to explain it to you, either way I'm not talking about it."
Good movie - also recommend either edition of "Razor's Edge" for PTSD understanding (I prefer Bill Murray's vice Tyrone Power's but that's because Murray reminds me of me).
Gregory Peck has some great scenes, many in which he doesn't seem to do much. The look on his face on the train when the man in the coat in front of him triggers a repulsive memory from the war is worth pages of dialogue. The uncomprehending shock from when he accidentally kills his best friend is a real tearjerker. I don't know what other American actor at this time could be so effective.
The plot was a surprise to me, I really had no idea this was such an engaging story. The title implies a dull, plodding story, and I have to admit little prior knowledge about this movie except its one of those I'd always heard about. This has got to be one of the best movies out of the Fifties and that is saying a lot. There is poignancy, humor (the kids always glued to the TV and oblivious to the real drama around them), and above all, a slice of life that is absorbing and realistic. This is definitely an overlooked gem needing full DVD glory. Have the popcorn ready, once you start it, you won't want to get off the couch.
