Portrait of Jennie 10/10/17

KL Studio Classics

David O. Selznick’s marvelous romantic fantasy ode to Jennifer Jones was almost wholly unappreciated back in 1948. It’s one of those peculiar pictures that either melts one’s heart or doesn’t. Backed by a music score adapted from Debussy, just one breathy “Oh Eben . . . “ will turn average romantics into mush. With Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Ethel Barrymore and Cecil Kellaway.
