This is a gentle little film that may have it's faults with the hindsight of40 years, but is enjoyable, especially I feel to those that remember thepost WW11 days.Alec Guinness plays the part beautifully, with his usual master of thecharacter, Rosalind Russel plays a good stereotyped Jewish Mother ....
Unlike a few of her female contemporary film stars from the Thirties,Rosalind Russell managed to avoid the perils of being cast in horrorfilms because it was the only roles she was offered. I think onlyKatharine Hepburn exercised better discretion in her parts even if forRussell they weren't always ...
One of the great love stories of all time. If it is possible to fall inlove with a movie I fell the first time I saw it. I did not haverecorder at the time. I thought it might be a time filler when I sawthe listing. I like Rosalind Russell and Alec Guinness so I tuned itin. I wish I had a recorder a...
I cannot believe the reviewers who are spewing forth venom that thismovie is offensive somehow. Because a true "Japanese" man was not castin Alec Guiness's role, is that any reason to dismiss this movie ashorrible and offensive? This is one of the most IN-offensive films Ihave ever seen, particularl...
Looking at the film afresh as a mature adult, I'm now amazed I neverrealized that however excellent an actor Alec Guiness was, he simply lookedludicrous as an ersatz Japanese man. He appeared to have some sort oftightening device around his eyes so that they always looked closed! Iguessthat passed f...
Maybe for someone with the attention span of a gnat.Nice movie. Great portrayal by Alec Guinness. He somehow manages toovercomethe impediment of a botox like makeup job to produce a completelyconvincingJapanese business man. Everything from the way he managed to sit in seiza(position of kneeling) in...
Alec Guinness acts as an elderly, influential Japanese businessman inthis romance / comedy / drama set in the background of the aftermath ofWorld War II .When you see this film, you will, not for a minute, imagine that Mr.Koichi Asano (played by Alec Guinness ) is anything other than Japanese- so co...
Warner Bros. cast movie stars Rosalind Russell, and Alec Guiness inthis movie based on the hit Broadway play directed by long time veteranMervyn Le Roy with very fine Warner Bros production values.Rosalind Russell an Irish Catholic Yankee was cast as a Brooklyn JewishMatron, the part played by Gertr...
What the world needs now and always is tolerance among people of differentfaiths. This sweet, charming film is a fine example of this principle.Rentit, buy it, see it. You won't be disappointed....
For the first time I have seen the film A MAJORITY OF ONE. I also havebeen reading some of the reviews here on IMDb. So many of them harp onthe fact that Alec Guinness was cast as the Japanese businessman whofalls in love with Rosalind Russell's lonely Jewish widow. For thatmatter, some take excepti...
On the movie A Majority of One it must be stated for the time it wasmade there is nothing racist in the plot at all.We cannot apply our ideology from now to the past other than to say wewould produce it differently! Acting is what it s all about that isAlec Guiness is acting the part of a Japanese m...
It was refreshing to see a movie without swearing or violence. It wassuch a sweet and pleasant story. At first I didn't think Alec Guinesswas right for the part of a Japanese but as the movie progressed, heseemed perfect. Rosiland Russell was good as the Jewish mother and RayDanton, playing the son ...
"A Majority of One" is a story about two middle-aged people fromdifferentcountries fall in love slowly. A successful Japanese businessman (AlecGuinness) falls for a Jewish American widow (Rosalind Russell) fromBrooklyn. It is a serious comedy that teaches a moral lesson. Everybodyisthe same on bas...
I've never seen another love story like A Majority of One. A story oftwo elderly individuals who are worlds apart having to overcome theirracial prejudice. These imperfect and flawed characters feel so realand human, and while two and a half hours may seem overlong, I believethis time is justified.T...
Soy sauce and matzos would've been the primary ingredients in a recipefor disaster when East and West don't just meet, they experience aculture clash. Japanese widower Koichi Asano (Guinness) and Brooklynwidower Bertha Jacoby (Russell) engage in a shipboard romance oncetheir eyes meet. Bertha's relu...
I loved this movie. It's not just about two former enemies falling inlove. It has a subtext about not listening. The daughter and son in lawignore Mama's input until she has to fix the mess they got themselvesinto. This is not about listening to your elders. This is about peoplewho think they know i...
Very nice and cute, stereotypical portrayals and odd casting, butenjoyable. Alex Guinness as a Japanese businessman is quite a stretchand his fake Japanese syntax is nearly comical, but look past that andenjoy the movie for what it is. Rosalind Russell is priceless as ananti-Japanese American woman ...
Today the casting would seem poor: Rosiland Russel, a good Catholiccast as a Jewish momma; and Alex Guiness as a Japaneses businessman,and yet the film works very well. The two mains play well in a story ofaging adults from two very different cultures who find that even amongthe ruins love can bloom...
Absolutely fabulous film showcasing the brilliant acting talents ofRosalind Russell, as a bitter Jewish widow, who lost a son to World War11, finding happiness and possible romance with a Japanese businessman,Alec Guiness, who also has suffered war losses.The film should certainly have been honored ...
Some have criticized this picture for not featuring genuine Japaneseactors in the leading roles. Remember: this was shot in '61 and thereweren't any big name Japanese actors in Hollywood then. Viewers shouldsuspend disbelief and just enjoy the story. Guinness does a good joband brings dry humor to t...
Judging by the few votes this movie must not be seen very often by themodern viewing audiences. It was on the TCM channel last night, andcomes across very well for a vintage movie.Rosalind Russell is the lead character as Mrs. Jacoby on a cruise toJapan. Her son in law is to do business with the Jap...
I bow to none in my admiration of Alec Guinness' acting prowess, butsometimes there are just roles which no self-respecting practitioner ofthe art should accept -- unless forced to at gunpoint -- and this wasone of them.I won't say Sir Alec didn't give it a good try. He had the mannerismsand body la...
At the onset, anyone seeing this film today will be shocked at theterrible casting decisions for this film. The most obvious one is theidea of British actor Alec Guinness playing a Japanese businessman.Sure, he was an amazing actor, but unfortunately for many decadesHollywood thought it was perfectl...
Criminals should be forced to watch this cringe worthy endless drivel.Alec Guinness is over-the-top offensive with his half-closed slantyeyes, painted on skin tones, and cartoonish speech patterns. Yes thiswas a less enlightened time. But really? How can a movie promoteunderstanding between Western ...
This is an excellent play!! You ought not confuse yourself, this isstrictly a play and I believe it might need to be appreciated as such.That means there is probably a very good film in the script some placewaiting to emerge as Michael Angello might say it.The meaning of the story is very topical mo...
