Throughout this terrific cinematic achievement in excellence, four of20th century's performance artist highest achievers see, to bedeliberately bidding me a magnificent farewell.Knowing that the immortalized Bette Davis, deserved Lillian Gish,versatile Ann Sothern & the actor whose voice alone (if n...
Whales of August, The (1989)*** (out of 4) Bette Davis, Lillian Gish and Vincent Price lead this terrific cast,which served as one last shining moment for the legends with AnnSothern and Harry Carey, Jr. having supporting roles. The film centerson Sarah (Gish) who is taking care of her sister Libby ...
The Whales of August is the only film I have seen Lillian Gish actuallyspeaking and acting. I only know of her having done silent films when shewas a young lady. Lillian Gish offers a fine performance in this her lastfilm role. Honestly, I am not a fan of Bette Davis, especially since thoseembarr...
I watched this because of the featured cast, and they don't disappoint-- but the film itself left me puzzled, unfulfilled and yes,disappointed. It strikes me in retrospect as a set of lovingly-detailedcharacters in search of a plot.I've no objection (in principle) to languorous cinema, but I have an...
for me, each time, it is like end of summer holiday.a little bitter,nostalgic at all, fragile, beautiful in special manner. a sentimentalmasterpiece like a piano piece in evening. it is reflection of a state.and last testimony about great noble performance from extraordinaryactors. for many of them ...
Any classic film aficionado will no likely feel their heart rateaccelerate a bit seeing old pros Lillian Gish, Bette Davis, VincentPrice and Ann Sothern cast as the main protagonists in a drama, anddeservedly so. All of the actors have deservedly achieved legendarystatus in some way and to see them ...
The incredible nine decade career of Lillian Gish came to a gloriousend when partnered with Bette Davis she made The Whales Of August. Ionly wish that Bette had ended her six decade career on the high noteof this film.There's no real plot to The Whales Of August, but the film is afascinating and hea...
One of a handful of films with the very old as its stars, this quietlittle movie tackles the question of finding meaning in one's twilightyears. Sarah (Lillian Gish) and Libby (Bette Davis) are elderly sisterssharing an old house off the coast of Maine. They have a refinedgentleman friend, Mr. Marin...
"Can one live beyond one's time?" ponders the 93 year old Sarah(Lillian Gish). This summarises one of the key themes in LindsayAnderson's moving drama The Whales of August, which focuses on therelationship between sisters Sarah and Libby (Bette Davis). Spendingthe summer in their vacation house in M...
Let me preface my comments by saying that: 1. I'm relatively oldmyself. 2. I believe Bette Davis is still the greatest American actressof all time. 3. Lillian Gish was a national treasure. 4. Ann Sothernhad a remarkable film career before moving on mostly to television. 5.I generally enjoy (and alwa...
This little film has much to offer: a simple story, gorgeous locationfilming, good writing and four film legends, all skilled actors, togetherinone film.Gish and Davis of course are the main draw here. Gish still radiated aquiet, life affirming joy when this was filmed in 1986, and it is clearthatsh...
Libby and Sara, two elderly sisters, live together in a seaside housein Maine. Libby, played by Bette Davis, is bitter, cynical and cold.She's partially blind and spends her days sitting in a chair, dreamingabout her past. Sarah, played by Lillian Gish, is a kinder, moretolerant character. She takes...
This play/film is really about the desire of movie-goers to see a finalor near final performance of five well-known actors and actresses:Bette Davis, Lillian Gish, Vincent Price, Ann Sothern, and Harry Carey,Jr. In fact, the film is little more than that, plus some lovely shotsof the Maine seashore....
This is the sort of film I am most fond of. Things like On Golden Pond,FourSeasons, A Foreign Field...Lillian Gish, in her last role, is wonderful, giving a gentle and movingperformance. Ann Southern and Vincent Price are also equally professionaland moving. But Bette Davis is out of her depth here...
No one will mistake this actor's showcase for a powerhouse of drama,but there's a reassuring comfort in the assembly of classic Hollywoodtalent. Advancing years and a toll of illnesses have left their mark onBette Davis, but seeing the still-sprightly 94-year old Lillian Gish, asilver screen veteran...
Strongest of all as I was watching this picture was my disorientation.I confess I am not yet old enough to make sense of the situation. Inthirty or forty years, probably I will be. But that is not what mattersnow.I saw it on the first day of 2010, twenty-three years after it wasmade, 72 years after ...
This movie is particularly important for older people who remember thecast of characters. If my understanding is correct, Lillian Gish diedabout two weeks after completing the movie. Bette Davis and VincentPrice died within a year. I believe Ann Sothern and Harry Carey alsodied not long after the mo...
In this simple yet astonishing film, five film veterans are united togetherto explore the prospects of getting old. Unfortunately, the respectedsubject matter was well beyond their years.Lillian Gish shines her final film performance as Sarah, older sister toLibby, portrayed by Bette Davis. Their ne...
Judging as a viewer, it must be amazingly difficult to be stylish andfresh because Hollywood (and the advertising industry) turns stylesinto mannerisms. The film did something pretty novel and interesting.It was in the manner of Whale Watching. And it did that in two ways,what was ON the screen and ...
Remember when you were a child, and all movies had that magic? It was awonder to see them, any movie was great because it was a movie. Itcould be great or small, but that didn't matter, because it was amovie, and it just had to be good.This film ended all that for me. I couldn't make it 15 minutes i...
