Pretty terrible
1 April 2019 | by HotToastyRagSee all my reviews

I sat through Glory was because Hot Toasty Rag was honoring Margaret O'Brien as Star of the Week, and this was the only movie I could get my hands on to see her acting talents as a young woman. The one nice thing I'll say about this movie is that there's nothing wrong with Margaret, and I would have loved to see more of her adult acting. Now for the not-too-nice stuff:

Nineteen-year-old Margaret plays a tomboy who lives and breathes horses. Her grandmother, Charlotte Greenwood, does nothing besides reprise her role as Aunt Eller in Oklahoma! and engage in irritating screaming contests with Walter Brennan. I can only imagine how tired Walter was of playing the grumpy, old hick, so why didn't he turn this movie down? Since Charlotte Greenwood had already been in Oklahoma!, why didn't she turn this movie down? If everyone involved protested and refused to make this movie, there would be no movie to criticize, and no one's feelings would be hurt from reading such terrible criticism. As it stands, people did show up to work, Glory did get made, and everyone who's ever seen it has panned it.
