MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION, 1954, Douglas Sirk, 108 Mins, Universal, USA
Reckless rich playboy, played by the great Rock Hudson in his breakthrough role, commits maritime manslaughter that ends the life of the town’s beloved local doctor. Douglas Sirk’s delirious Technicolor melodrama weaves its way through wild twists, turns, trials, tribulations, the American subconscious and the sudsy and spiritual journey to make right what can never be undone.
WRITTEN ON THE WIND, 1956, Douglas Sirk, 99 Mins, Universal, USA
Alcoholism, nymphomania, impotence, and deadly jealousy fill the screen in Douglas Sirk’s Technicolor operatic tragedy, WRITTEN ON THE WIND. Mitch Wayne, played by Rock Hudson, works hard as a geologist for the Texan oil-rich degenerate Hadleys who envelope him in their maelstrom of psychosexual angst and fury.
