The Far Shore #

Released 7/28/1976

Description: Set in 1918 Ontario, The Far Shore employs both melodramatic conventions and experimental formal tactics to say the tale of Eulalie, a Quebecoise woman, and her love affair wit Tom McLeod (a thinly veiled fictionalization of Canadian painter Tom Thomson). Married to a Toronto engineer, Eulalie finds life with him oppressive. Together she and Tom escape to the wilds of Northern Ontario, where they play a brief idyll before being hunted down by her jealous husband.

That Wonderful Urge Reviews:

Tyrone Power made light comedies in the mid to late 1930s when he was first establishing himself at Twentieth Century Fox. In fact, he made this exact light comedy in 1937, then named "Love is News." The storyline concerns an heiress who, to receive back at a reporter and present him what it's like to be the topics of headlines, claims they're married. This tired romp was fresher back then and much, much more entertaining in the hands of Power, Loretta Young, and Don Ameche. What a blow this gotta have been for Power, to create "The Razor's Edge," his private favorite, "Nightmare Alley," and "Captain from Castile," and then be forced into this by the studio. It's no wonder he turned to the scene and then formed his own movie production company.Power is paired with his leading lady from happier productions, the luminous Gene Tierney ("Son of Fury" and "The Razor's Edge"). Unfortunately, she plays the role of the heiress in such a coy and put-on manner that it's difficult to say when the hero is being sincere, as she delivers her lines in the same method on both occasions, and everytime with an icy smile. Power does his greatest - he plays the role realistically, with no mugging or attempts at forced humor, but alas, the material isn't very good. These two unbelievable stars can be seen to better advantage in earlier and soon films.


This is an odd film--not because it is a makeover but because both the original (LOVE IS NEWS) and the makeover star Tyrone Power. It's rare to see a star do this, as the studios often remade movies but hardly ever used the same actors. In addition, both movies are bundled together on one DVD so you can compare them. After seeing both, I would definitely suggest you see LOVE IS NEWS, as it's superior in each way.The movie is about newspaper boy (Power) harassing a rich heiress (Gene Tierney) in order to create headlines. It really didn't seem to matter if his articles were real and when Gene finds out that Tyrone is NOT the boy he claims to be but a reporter, she is furious. However, instead of blowing her top, she decides to give him a taste of her own medicine by announcing to all the newspapers that she and Power are married--as she knows that the papers will actually create Power's life miserable as well. Oddly, in the original film, the heiress announces they are engaged--here she claims they are married--though this hardly improves the quality of the movie (though it does deliever a bit of sexual innuendo the original didn't have).The acting is decent enough, though I really think Loretta Young did a better job in the original--probably because she seemed to have a better gift for comedy. Also, while Tyrone tries, he just doesn't seem to have quite the charm he did in the original. Part of this is naturally because it's a makeover and part of this is because the helping characters weren't nearly as strong. In particular, the Justice of the Peace was a large low mission here, as instead of coming off as comical, he's a sadist and cute much ignores the law--surefire comedy killers! My tip is see the original. Then, if you insist, see the remake. BUT, don't see the makeover first--it just doesn't stack up well and might convince you not to bother with the first movie and that would be a large mistake.


Scolding reviewers who go on and on urging you to "see the original" and "this is a terrible remake" are ponderous and not too bright, in my opinion. I can separate performances and stories in my mind without any problem whatsoever. This is a fun film with lots of intelligent scenes and nice interplay between Tierney and Power, who clearly had private affection for one another. The helping cast does a nice job of getting out of the method and letting Gene and Tyrone shine. Chill Wills is nice as a crooked judge and has many funny one-liners. Its fun and enjoyable! The scenery, whether in Sun Valley or Fresh York is realistic and a history lesson in 40's era lifestyles. I mean, its Gene Tierney and Tyrone Power, for crying out loud! They aren't making film stars like those two anymore, are they? Enjoy!
