The thin line between passion and love is a topic that romances have touched on time and time again, but Double Harness treats this with mature consideration. You know, sometimes bloggers talk about classic movies from a place of authority, others just give honest, raw observations that can sometimes be enlightening. Other times… well, the opinion I read was more musing on the moral leanings of Holly Golightly.
To the point, the writer said that he was fine with her being a prostitute, but found it off-putting that she would marry for money. Marriage, like education, is a cultural leveling ground. The ending of Female was a letdown, but Double Harness succeeds where Female boldly backed away from its feminist message. Toss in a great cast on top, and you have a hell of a hidden gem.
What do the six films have in common? Producer Merian C. Cooper King Kong, The Searchers.

When Joan sees Monica and her husband at the restaurant and she decides to approach them, they act all chill and she invites Monica to their ranch, etc. Then after Joan leaves, Monica basically says, oh your wife is clever. And then somehow John miraculously decides he loves his wife. How and what was she proving by approaching them? Why would Monica say she was clever?
And why John would somehow be swayed to want to stay with his wife by the exchange?

Thanks for a great review of a great film, one of my favourites. I loved that! Serve him right LOL!
And then… that happens. I mean, how can you possibly…. The lovely Monica Page. Powell gets in some funny double takes through the film, as his character is just disaffected enough to find most of the marriage situation preposterous. Sign me up! Share this: Twitter Facebook.
