Romeo and Juliet Reviews:

ROMEO AND JULIET, the scions of old Verona's two most strong families, become the playthings of fate & the fools of fortune.This was a Very Large Movie for MGM in 1936. No (reasonable) expenses spared. Not only was the Studio tackling The Bard for the first time in a major way, but the extreme celebrity of the original enjoy guaranteed a nice deal of public attention. Few choice roles were accessible for MGM's brightest stars and the part of Juliet would be the desire of each young actress on the lot.Almost predictably the role went to Norma Shearer, who, as Irving Thalberg's wife, should almost pick & select what she (or Irving) wanted. However, it could be stated at once that she is splendid in the role. Sweetly demure, innocent, apprehensive, fiercely protective of her love & recklessly heedless of her fate - she is Shakespeare's heroine.She is matched by Leslie Howard's Romeo. A bit giddy at first with puppy love, he quickly matures into a tender lover & vengeful killer, finally willing, like Shearer, to forego all of his Catholic teaching and commit self-murder, thus dooming himself to Perdition.Although decades too old for their roles (Juliet was 12, Miss Shearer 34; Romeo about 16, Mr. Howard was 43) they understand and speak their lines much more beautifully & proficiently than any teenager. Shakespeare's lines are really verse of a high order and demands skill & maturity. Howard & Shearer certainly have no trouble there. Nor were they the only members of the cast whose ages were rather past the prime.In his only detail length Shakespearean film, John Barrymore amply displays his celebrated talent in a bravura performance as an aging, sottish Mercutio. Barrymore understood the hero thoroughly and he turns this strange, brilliant boy into one of the film's chief treasures. Interestingly, much of his dialogue is rather scatological & gross, but being Shakespeare it seems to have flown under the radar of the Hays Office.Edna May Oliver steals nearly each stage she's in as Juliet's waspish, eccentric Nurse. Basil Rathbone makes a fiery, insolent Tybalt. Reginald Denny adds a touch of distinction in the throwaway role of Benvolio, while unbelievable old Sir C. Aubrey Smith & Violet Kemble Cooper are colourful as Juliet's parents.At first blush, Andy Devine seems an odd choice for a Shakespearean production, but he is very competent as the Nurse's simpleminded servant.Somewhat lost in this perfect cast is English actor Ralph Forbes in the rather thankless role of the County Paris. His is a somewhat sad story. Although replete with talent & charm, he still never quite reached the top echelons of stardom. He would have made a nice Romeo.Movie mavens will spot Katherine DeMille as the fair Rosaline (her cousin Agnes de Mille was the film's choreographer) and Ian Wolfe as the impoverished apothecary, both uncredited.The movie has unbelievable production values - the sets, costumes and background score (borrowing themes from Tchaikovsky) all of the highest quality. For a tiny chuckle, watch closely during Juliet's dance at the Capulet ball - one of the dancers behind her steps on her dress hem and nearly trips. It's very fast, but worth catching.


I am sick and stayed home from work and TCM was having a Shakespeare festival. Having never heard of the 1936 ver of this play, I decided to give it a whirl even though I am not a Leslie Howard fan. Well, I have to tell I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I knew the actors were too old for their roles (turns out they were even older than I thought!) their delivery was great, which is necessary when you are delivering the Bard's lines verbatim, for the most part. Even if you couldn't catch the literal meaning of the words, the actors provided plenty of non-verbal context for you to pick things up.I thought Norma Shearer was going to be terrible at first, as one another commentary has mentioned, her first stage makes her look a tiny too mindlessly sweet and giddy--almost like the look is plastered on her face--but she really came through in the end. When she had to amp up the emotion, she did, especially considering the Hayes Code was actually being enforced.I have to concur that one of the greatest hero acting jobs I have seen in thirties cinema is by the lady who plays Juliet's nurse (her name escapes me). She switches from broad comedy to contemplation effortlessly. Basil Rathbone is appropriately vile, oily and relentless. I would have liked to have seen a tiny more of him on screen. And I had no concept that Barrymore's turn as Mercurito was so controversial until I read the another comments here. His approach may be an eccentric, idiosyncratic one, but it is absolutely riveting (although I CAN trust he was in his cups when filming it--which somehow makes it work all the more).I do accept that there may be a whiff of the effeminate running through the major male characters (I had to chuckle when Romeo tells his love for Juliet has made him "effeminate"), but that didn't crash the picture for me at all. The sets are great. Though limited, they are pretty and the shots are well thought out. ****SMALL SPOILERS*** I found the crypt where the final sword war takes zone something right out of a Universal horror movie, and somewhat reminiscent of Fritz Lang, too.A modern audience may search this ver of the enjoy a tiny deliberate, but I thought the Franco Zeffereti version, once you receive past the novelty of its modern approach to sex and passion, dull at its heart, and this is much better than seeing John Luguzamo brandishing a weapon. Check it out.


For years, I place off watching this ver of Shakespeare's classic love story, knowing that all the main users were about thirty years too old for their roles. Finally, when the movie came on late on night, I decided to take a look, because I do admire the work of so many of the players.Provided you can place aside the issues of the ages of the actors, the effect is a very pleasant surprise. The largest surprise for me was the performance of Norma Shearer - I've everytime liked her work, but considered her rather lightweight for Shakespeare. Not so - she delivered her lines with a nice feel for the style and pace, and was as delicious and launch a Juliet as one should wish. Her age became irrelevant; this was a young woman fresh to love, fully swept off her feet and ready to surrender all - for the first time.Leslie Howard was also comfortable with the Shakespearean dialogue, if slightly lacking the boyish passion we rightly expect to see. He was more the slightly older suitor, taken by surprise with the new appeal of his Juliet, but ready to cast aside previous attachments to pursue and victory her. His lovely voice delivered the lines with ease and fluency.John Barrymore's Mercutio was much more the ageing playboy than the dashing young blade, but his sure touch with the dialogue showed clearly why he was considered the preeminent Shakespearean actor of his day in America. His delivery of the "Queen Mab" speech was a delight. His body was method too old, but his spirit lacked nothing.Flora Robson came near to stealing most of her scenes, as she so often did, and Basil Rathbone was totally at home in the role of Tybalt; fine performances from these two, as we would expect from their backgrounds.It was, to my mind, rather over-produced, with the actors in danger of being lost in the expansive sets, but remembering that had these actors been performing on stage, we wouldn't bat an eyelid at their ages, they deliever us with an engrossing experience and deliver a enjoy that even the experts couldn't fault.
