To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A beautifully clear film. Claudette Colbert and Fred McMurray+ Ray Milland do a great job of entertaining the audience. In this case me. I highly recommend this movie. My only complaint is I wish Lynn (Claudette) had chosen between her men differently.
McMurray and Colbert were very good together in this film. A good plot, and fine acting by both. I like old black and white's and don't care much for a lot of the crap they do today. It's a down home movie and has a nice ending. I know the younger crowd will call this old fogie but compared to some of the stuff they do today this movie is just fine with me.
Claudette Colbert is wonderful in this film, forced to choose between young Fred MacMurray and young Ray Milland (both of whom went on to star with Colbert in a few more films). Especially funny is how Colbert's character Lynn meets cute with Milland's character in a subway station.
I first saw this movie years ago on AMC Classics. It was shown then all the time. Then AMC changed and no longer showed this movie. When I tried to purchase it, I discovered that it had not yet been put on VHS or DVD. After years of waiting, I am finally the happy owner of The Gilded Lily. Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray acted so well together. They were comfortable with one another and their acting seemed effortless. I really liked the movie when I first saw it in 80s (90s?, on AMC Classics) and I still like it now.
