Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

WW2 Damage

1950's "The Men" may not have been a tour-de-force production like "A Streetcar Named Desire" and there was certainly no Oscar nomination here for actor, Marlon Brando's performance....

But, at least - Brando's "method acting" skills showed the audience that he could also play a (somewhat) likable character (who was clearly physically challenged) rather than his usual trademark shtick of a loud-mouthed bully and louse who slapped the women around just for kicks.

Anyway - If nothing else - I certainly do give this film its due credit for raising the despairing issue of war vets who had been crippled, maimed, and/or disfigured while serving their country (doing battle duty) during WW2.

This sort of distressing subject matter was, I'm sure, not often brought to light before the public back then and I'll bet you this motion picture made a lot of people feel very uneasy and resentful.
