“I believe this as one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. I enjoyed the story, the dialog and above all I enjoyed the atmosphere and the actors. All of them are great but to me Fredric March is outstanding. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNorman/Alfred is a wonderful character: frail, undignified, touchy, weak and able to love Vicki/Esther so much, with all his heart. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFredric March brings all of it on the screen, providing one of his best performances here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you would like to become an actor, I believe you should watch this movie and Mr. Marchu0026#39;s way of acting. Pay attention to his eyes, his hands, his face and his moves, especially when he interrupts his wife thanking everybody for the Oscar she got and claims he deserves three statues for the worse performances. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHe is overcome by himself and starts dying. I just shivered. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo me, this version canu0026#39;t be compared to its remakes. The allure and the fascination of Hollywood have been perfectly represented here, together with an unpleasant and creepy feeling of emptiness.”
