Great Michael Powell Film
Never viewed this film before and always enjoy James Mason pictures and was surprised to see that it was showing for the first time on TCM TV and Robert Osborne and Michael Powell’s wife gave a review and history of this film. There is plenty of comedy, and a very interesting story about an elderly artist named, Bradley Monahan, (James Mason) who is getting tired of being recognized for his great paintings and wants to find a very quite place where he can create some new paintings and he selects Australia’s Great Barrier Reef for his retreat. Bradley soon finds out he is not alone on this island and runs into all kinds of people. However, he does meet a very cute young girl named Cora Ryan, (Helen Mirren) who is only a young teenager and he makes a deal with her to buy her fish that she catches and chicken’s that she steals for a living to support her old aunt who loves gin. Eventually Bradley convinces Cora to pose for him in the nude and he draws all sorts of paintings of her. This is truly a great film and I was so glad I was able to view this film which is rarely seen in the United States, enjoy.
Mason changes his accent for each delivery
Well, somebody was popping some pills or knocking back some serious liquor whilst this little number was being made. All of the acting, except that of Helen Mirren and occasional, James Mason, is well over the top – over acting carried in several places to out and out farce. Mason changes his accent for each delivery and gazes ahead expressionlessly like some blind mad man. How Mirren managed such an excellent performance and even half of it nude or semi nude is quite remarkable and for anyone who saw this at the time a very clear sign that here was a truly great actress. I don’t know the story of how this film got made but I note Mason’s interest as co-producer so maybe he put up some money. He must have really fancied dallying with the beautiful ms Mirren, and who wouldn’t, but really!
