4.0 étoiles sur 5 Melodrama done well...even if it is just melodrama 1 avril 2015
Par Robert Hayes - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
Based on a controversial (at the time, at least) novel, PEYTON PLACE is a story about the lives and secrets of people who live in a small New England town. Also having seen a few melodramas recently, including both versions of IMITATION OF LIFE, I've noticed what does and doesn't work about these films, at least for me. Whereas IMITATION OF LIFE goes for a more sappy dramatic angle, PEYTON PLACE is more tawdry and salacious (by 50's standards), and therefore a little more interesting. The characters in this film were also better written and the performances were more restrained, so that the drama was a little more believable. The only major issues with the film are that it begins to lose steam about two hours in and concludes in a rather stuffy, dramatically inert fashion. However, it does pretty much everything else quite well. The performances were all excellent and the various plot threads were all deftly handled and given due attention, as well as being interconnected enough to drive the story without seeming episodic. And even though the score was a little overblown at times, it fit the material well. The cinematography was also great to look at, and there were some beautiful on-location shots. Overall, while it was a little overstuffed and a little too long, PEYTON PLACE is a good example of how to make melodrama compelling without resorting to least common denominator emotions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Part one of Peyton Place 26 février 2017

I saw this movie on Amazon the first time ( with Prime membership) I fell in love with it. It's set in the a time that for me wished folks still acted like this today. The way the ladies dressed, the school kids showed respect, old fashioned as you would call it today. It's such a good movie, after you watch this one you should also watch the second part too. You won't be disappointed if you like older movies.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not demanding, but always enjoyable 29 juin 2013

It is extremely difficult, at this remove in time, to realize the tornado of controversy that followed publication of Grace Metalious' novel _Peyton Place_ in the mid-1950s. I wasn't allowed to read it, since I was only ten years old at the time. (Typically, my mother left her copy laying around and I managed to sneak a few peeks, though I couldn't understand what I read, and I knew better than to ask for any explanations.) Hollywood treatment was inevitable, and to the astonishment of a great many people, for once a book got a fairly straightforward translation to film. It pretty much had to be handled honestly; like Rhett's "I don't give a damn" in _Gone With The Wind_, practically everybody in the country knew what happened in the book, and sanitizing it to any great degree would have made the film a travesty. This was probably the first time child molestation and abortion were openly portrayed in a US film. Possibly this couldn't have been done were it not that the novel itself allowed the film to conform to the Hayes Code by having the child molester get what he had coming to him, and that the doctor who performs the abortion has to face the possibility that once he admits to his actions, he may never again be allowed to practice medicine. (That question is, however, left open in both the novel and the film.)

For all the story's sordid violence, this is a beautiful film. Maybe that was intentional, precisely to offset the often unpleasant subject matter. The Maine countryside is exquisitely photographed and the Technicolor has survived the transfer to DVD perfectly. (You will see that in almost every outdoor scene, the streets are soaking wet; this was done in a great many color films from the '50s because the saturated color processing of the day made it necessary to cut down glare from the pavement.) The DVD sound quality is excellent. Sets are well suited to the pre-WWII and WWII era in which the film is set. Unfortunately Miss Turner's costumes are not, and nor are her hairstyles. Every dress she wears in the film could have been seen on the street in the mid-1950s, and they are all far too glamorous to suit the character---Constance MacKenzie is supposed to be a repressed middle-class woman living in a small New England town, but her necklines and the figure-hugging cut of her clothes are far more reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor's character in "Butterfield 8." It's unknown to me whether Turner refused to appear in the 1930s and 1940s styles that were fashionable when she began her career, or whether that was a studio decision. (She was perhaps afraid of dating herself.) But the heavy, solid French Twist in which Miss Turner's hair spends the first part of the film was not current in the 1930s, and her looser, curlier hairstyle in later scenes is less evocative of the Andrews Sisters' era than of Marilyn Monroe's. Possibly the change in her hairstyle was meant to symbolize her relaxation as she becomes more comfortable in her relationship with the high school principal Rossi (Lee Phillips), but if so the wrong hairstyles were chosen.

The cast is uneven. Lana Turner was a consummate movie star, never a great actress, and here she runs true to form. The characters closest to her in the story line, her daughter Allison MacKenzie (Diane Varsi) and Phillips, were either performing at their usual level or were ordered not to outdo Turner. The senior actor with the most significant role, Lloyd Nolan, provides a convincing reading of a physician torn between his profession's legal and moral obligations, and the hellish situation he faces, created by the small town's gossipy backbiting and hypocritical moral stances. Mildred Dunnock, a fine actress seen here in a minor role, beautifully conveys the disappointment of an aging spinster teacher denied the job of principal at the high school where she has taught for decades, and her steely determination to continue instructing her students to lead intelligent lives. Of younger cast members, Hope Lange stands out in a sensibly restrained and moving performance as the brutally victimized Selena. Russ Tamblyn, as Allison's boyfriend Norman, is excellent as a teenager, harshly repressed by his mother, who seizes a chance for independence by enlisting at the outbreak of WWII and makes a success of it. Arthur Kennedy, as the perpetually drunken stepfather who rapes Selena, has little chance to develop a character outside the limitations posed by the role itself; we know from his first moment onscreen that this guy is bad news, and for the rest of the film he does little more than drink straight from the bottle while he sulks and pouts at the cards he feels life has unfairly dealt him---until, of course, he attacks Selena. Those who remember 1950s TV will recognize David Nelson, Ozzie and Harriet's elder son (and Ricky's brother) as Selena's boyfriend. Alas, David was always the least masterful actor in the Nelson family, none of whom was particularly gifted in that regard; his work here does nothing to enhance his screen stature. (His best work, which openly spoofs his TV persona, can be seen in "Crybaby," as Patty Hearst's husband.) Perhaps the most interesting appearance is Lorne Greene (Ben Cartwright in "Bonanza") as the prosecuting attorney in Selena's murder trial. Greene's stentorian voice lends itself perfectly to the character, though those who remember Greene best as Ben Cartwright may be startled to see him with dark hair and wearing a 1950s business suit.

If there is one solidly outstanding aspect to this film, it's the score---the main theme is immediately attractive (not to say seductive), while the violent scenes, as for example Lucas Cross' brutalizing of his stepdaughter, and her later flight from him, are accompanied by skittering, jagged, dissonant scoring. The narrative passages read in voice-over by Varsi are perfectly chosen, and give the film a literary aura that actually succeeds in improving some of its other, less attractive aspects.

I always watch this film with enjoyment, much of which I frankly admit is purely nostalgic. The conclusion may strike some as too upbeat, with too many loose ends neatly tied up in a pretty bow. But _Peyton Place_ truly is an enjoyable film, and if it makes few demands on its audience, it none the less rewards the viewer with a frank and at times even compelling story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good film, so-so Special Features 30 juin 2006
Par Jeffrey Compton - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
As other reviewers have discussed the film in good detail, I will just say I have always enjoyed Peyton Place. It is one of the few instances where the film rises over the material presented.

However, I found the special features on the DVD to be very disappointing. The extra audio track is Russ Tamblyn and Terry Moore discussing the film (unfortunately most of the other stars are dead, so this is the best they could do). They are obviously not in the same room, so there is no interaction between them. Tamblyn's comments are okay, but Moore is constantly reminding us of the few high points of her so-so career.

The other special feature is the show done by AMC's Hollywood Backstory on the film - and like other Backstory's, overly dwells with sensational tidbits (especially Lana Turner's ordeal when her daughter killed her mob boyfriend).

Get the DVD for a good quality presentation of a favorite film, but not to learn anything substantive about it.

Peyton Place is the 1957 movie based on the novel of the same name written by Grace Metalious about a small fictional New England town. I've wanted to see it for a long time just because Peyton Place is so popular it's become a synonym for a scandal filled small town. I finally decided to bite the bullet and watch it after it was mentioned in the book Necessary Lies. In Necessary Lies, naive social worker Jane, sees it and is shocked by what's in it. I really wanted to find out what would be so shocking for a movie made in the late 1950s.

Of course nothing in this movie was shocking by today's standards but I can see why it was when it was first released. The word sex is used several times, which I can imagine took people aback. Also, one teenage girl tells a boy, "It's about time you learned that girls want to the same things as boys and they have the right to know how." What?? Girls like sex too? Revolutionary! Seriously, I'm sure that was a revelation for some at that time. Heck, it might still be a revelation for some people today!

This was a good movie but at 2 hours and 37 minutes, it was about 37 minutes too long. There were several long, meandering scenes that I thought could have been edited down without losing anything. The acting was very affected and dramatic but I think that was the accepted style of acting for that time period. The same goes for the overly dramatic, tympanic score. I'm so glad movies of today aren't scored that way.

In researching the movie, I learned that it is watered down compared to the book. Now I feel like I must read the original novel to get the full scoop. Apparently the novel has quite a back story as well and there are also books written about the real life story of the author and the town she based Peyton Place on. I have opened up quite a can of worms for myself by watching this movie!
