About the Movie
Based on the Theodore Dreiser novel that publishers deemed "too immoral," William Wyler's Carrie is a power-house of human passions transformed into soul-withering frailties. As Carrie, the smalltown girl come to Chicago, Jennifer Jones "seems to have stepped out of the pages of the book" (Time). And Laurence Olivier gives one of his finest portrayals as love-doomed Hurstwood. "Olivier has always given credit to Wyler for teaching him how to act in the movies when they did Wuthering Heights together, but it's in Carrie that he showed how much he had learned" (Pauline Kael, 5001 Nights at the Movies).
Interesting Story Line
This movie has an interesting storie line, somewhat recomended.It's a classic movie, delightfully fun!!
This was a great movie and I enjoy watching it over and over again. The cast of actors couldn't have been better. Lawerence Olivier and Jennifer Jones did play their roles which such class. It is hard to take your eyes off of them. Even though Lawrence is older, he oodles charm and you feel such sympathy for him. Jennifer Jones remains one of, if not the most strikingly beautiful actress of all time. She was a natural beauty. I love all her movies Duel in the Sun, Madame Bovary, Love is a Many Spendored Thing, Portrait of Jenny and one of my all time favorites Song of Bernadette.
ugh! i want the one with sissy spacek!
