GLOSSY AND BIG - FLAWED CLASSIC
Comments about Cobweb, The:
Big stars, big production, from a great director. But panned by most critics at the time, it is now more appreciated even though flawed - it is all about a new curtain for a home for the mentally disturbed.... The print is beautiful - wide cinemascope and stereo sound too. A must for home theatre systems and those who love collecting classic Hollywood. A slick M-G-M rarity.

The Cobweb is one of Vincente Minnelli's many triumphs, and a high water mark for the melodrama of the 1950s. The mastery of color, screenplay, and characterization is superb--this is the Old Hollywood at its best, a reminder of what we've lost in the age of the adolescent blockbuster.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One of the great Minnelli melodramas...

About Me Home Theater
Vincente Minnelli was in peak form here, properly utilizing the CinemaScope screen for a lurid melodrama about an upscale nut house with old drapes. A terrific cast give fascinating performances, and while there is the tacky Freudianisms of the time, the unsettling domestic truths shine through in dazzling Technicolor. This nicely restored print is lushly saturated and presented with the original multi-track sound, which bodes nicely for Leonard Rosenman's atonal score. Superb.
Why didn't I remember how good this is?

About Me Collector, Movie Buff
I saw this film years ago and didn't really appreciate it. This time around I was totally engaged in the story. Unusual role for Widmark.Great color and cinemascope. Fifties cinema at it's best.
