Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018


Yes. I certainly do recall seeing 1946's "Beauty and the Beast" on television as a child. And, I do remember that it did leave an impression on me.

But, seeing it now, after all that time - I found that the intended enchantment of this 72-year-old fantasy-romance picture got completely lost on me and left me dead-cold.

For the most part - I found that not only was the beast a pretty silly boy - But, a lot of the time the story's situations (along with its character portrayals) seemed somehow unnecessarily forced and absurd to the point of being a literal pain in the neck.

And, with that all said and done - I ask you this - Why is it that French actors from that era in movie-making often had an annoying tendency to over-act their part when they really should have been down-playing a scene? Eh? Why?
