MR. ARKADIN wrote:...What I like most about ANNE OF THE INDIES, is that it rarely falls into cliche, or the stereotypical idea of what a swashbuckler should be. Perhaps that might be because it is a romantic tragedy with an eyepatch instead of the other way 'round. As for Peters role, there is no room for error. If she underplays the part, Anne would not be interesting or sympathetic, while overplay would simply be a parody. The result is a measured performance that serves well in Tourneur's world...The result is an interesting discourse on gender roles, and the questioning of the characters abilities to undergo those changes and live within them. There's a lot more here, but I'll need about five more viewings to get a good grip on this one.

:shock: A good grip? This is what you came up with on your first pass? Whew!!! A great read, Mr. A. And Jean Peters is wonderful.
