This Property Is Condemned - Comments and Message Board

this movie was anything but subpar. natalie wood was perfect. charles bronson and mary badham and robert blake were all wonderful. very well acted and tastefully done. anyone who rates this movie subpar is utter nonsense. see this movie, it's a breath of fresh air compared to some of the junk that actually wins an oscar (no country for old men)....please.

"Tennessee" Williams was from Columbus, Mississippi, where I lived for awhile in 1979, then wettest year on record, and a hurricane fizzled out in New Orleans, in early August. They built the Tombigbee Barge Canal (now Waterway) connecting the waters of the Tennessee River with the Gulf of Mexico, in Mobile, Alabama using that Tombigbee River, chosen over an "Energy Island" for New York City by the U.S. Congress. Sometimes I wonder, having finally seen this film, how much it may have been about an old sow of a proposal for the canal and how much of it was just a story. Republicans manned the phones then and registered as many as they could (and maybe jammed the Democrats on election day, after all it's where the Choctaw Reservation is, and the money to do so for New Hampshire came from in 2002, defeating the incumbent woman governor) to vote, making them the new Big House. I might've given it three stars, because of the direction and story erudition, they earned it.
