Green Hell  [DVD]Douglas Fairbanks Jr (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 84 min
There's a good half-hour of hilarity to be had anywhere in this famously ludicrous jungle melodrama before tedium takes over. Although capably staged in studio sets by James
Whale and well enough cast (with Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Joan Bennett, George Sanders and Vincent Price among others), it is made unendurable by the dialogue and situations devised by former Oscar
winner Frances Marion.
As Vincent Price once said, "About five of the worst pictures ever made are all in this one picture."
