Manhandled: Directed by Allan Dwan. With Gloria Swanson, Tom Moore, Lilyan Tashman, Ian Keith. Gloria Swanson plays Tessie McGuire, a shopgirl who, when her boyfriend breaks their date one evening, goes to a party with a louche crowd of artists and hangers-on. She wows them with some zesty mimicry, and so gains an introduction to a better-paying job, impersonating a high-toned Russian countess to attract snobby customers into a dressmaker’s establishment.
“Brilliant war drama.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story of 1st Marine Reconnaissance Battalionu0026#39;s participation in the second Allied invasion of Iraq, in 2003. Seen through the eyes of Rolling Stone reporter Evan Wright, who was embedded with the Battalion and upon whose book the series is based.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThough dramatized, this is pretty much a warts-and-all account of a military unit in combat. Hardly glamorous, it shows well the problems they face, both external and internal. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot all drama and explosions – there are many great comedic moments, especially in the dialogue.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAccurate, engrossing and entertaining.”
