Fifth about The Seventh

People Will Talk (1951)

People Will Talk: great film, which has its sheer humanity as the strongest suit. Very well-written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz: the dialogue is sparkling and it requires good actors to read it well; Cary Grant made a career of screwball comedies, so he is more than up to the task, but the whole cast is uniformly great. It’s a lovely story (even if it has a somewhat contrived set-up). The camera work is elegant, non-intrusive without being simplistic.
