None But the Lonely Heart
Rated
Clifford Odets' directorial debut: an adaptation of Richard Llewellyn's novel about an angry young lower-class Cockney, adrift in London's seamier quarters. I defer further description of Odets and his film to the great Jean Renoir: "We became excellent friends...Clifford got me to read his plays, and it was a revelation...The precise delineation of character and the true ring of the dialogue are not what matters most. What matters is their bitter poetry, powerful, profound, and despairing...What I want to emphasize here is that this child of the theater was also a brilliant film director. His film None But The Lonely Hearts is, in my humble opinion, a masterpiece. Jovial hayseed with a grin as wide as the Natchez amiably disrupts the Army. Based on Mac Hyman's play, this is a repeat of the 1956 stage role that made a star of Andy Griffith. "
