Storyline

With his naïve air, his rangy and reassuring silhouette, the first one symbolizes success, someone who everybody wants to look like. When they shared the poster of the 'Big sleep' in 1978, those who so well represented America during more than a half-century did not suspect that they would leave together for an eternal rest in 1997. The second, behind his legendary nonchalance, is a figure of bad boy, kind-hearted hooligan that we would like to have for accomplice. For the occasion of the 20th anniversary of their disappearances, Gregory Monro wonders what is the legacy left by these two big myths of the Hollywood cinema that are James Stewart and Robert Mitchum and in which way they fed the American dream ?

A must see
5 February 2019 | by Jackidy44See all my reviews

First time I saw this was at the Coronado Film Festival. Audience was overwhelmed, and Mrs. Mitchum attended for a presentation (she's a sweetheart). This film is so special but in a good sense, much more than a straight and casual good guy vs bad guy, It goes very deep into one can call the American dilemma, the bipolar kind of stuff. Cannot really go into much details as I don't want to spoil any of the many surprises. What I can say is that the archives are tremendous, the daughters of of both icons so moving and generous, and Leonard Maltin is so great to watch. The 10/10 is for the longer version (saw a shorter one earlier this year, although it's still great, it's not as great as the 80 spectacular minutes). If you can find it, then go for it.
