So Big [1953] [DVD]

Jane Wyman (actor)
Sterling Hayden (actor)

Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 98 min
Quality: Excellent, b/w, 4:3

Author Edna Ferber achieved tremendous cinematic success with filmed versions of Show Boat (three times), Cimarron (twice), and Giant (only once, but it more than compensated in length and grandeur), and this Pulitzer Prize winner also spawned three film versions, this one being the last.

Jane Wyman, a huge star after her Oscar for Johnny Belinda, follows Colleen Moore and Barbara Stanwyck in playing the New Holland schoolmistress bringing up son, Steve Forrest against all odds in rural America. The tale's a mite old-fashioned for today's tastes, but under skilled editor-turned-director Robert Wise the Warner Bros gloss is not too intrusive, and there are nicely honed performances from big Sterling Hayden and lovely Nancy Olsen in support.
