    Jeanne Eagels (1957) on Dec. 6th at 9:15AM on TCM

    JEANNE EAGLES is a favorite of mine, although I haven't seen it in a few years I think the performances were excellent, especially Virginia a drunken has-been trying to make a comeback- Kim Novak gave it her all and was very good,especially in her early scenes--I was very surprised at how revealing her 'Dardinella' costume was and wonder how it ever got by the censors. The scene where Novak slowly waltzes into the scene as Sadie Thompson in RAIN acompanied by the music Wabash Blues is a wonder to behold, she holds your attention and actually becomes Miss Thompson and the transformation is amazing - Her drunk scenes add another dimension to the character, it's as if Jeanne Eagles is being played by three different actresses. BRAVO: : : : :
