The Reviews for The Spiral Road (1962) 720p


"No man has seen ELOHIM ..." 1 John 4:12 ~Reviewed byMatthew28_TheGreatCommissionVote: 3/10

3 Observations on this laboriously lengthy 1962 pseudo-adventure drama: first, the writing could have easily excised forty minutes of unnecessary dialog and exposition from the central narrative thereby tightening the story arc of how and why Dr. Anton Drager (Rock Hudson) becomes a Christian. Second, on the plus-side, the location shooting was a wise decision highlighting the challenges of overseas medical assignments as the Indonesian landscape becomes a character in-and-of-itself in the drama. In contrast, John Ford's "7 Women", a similar studio-bound drama is disadvantageously claustrophobic. Third, the promising supporting characters like Willem Wattereus (Geoffrey Keen) are woefully under-developed and under-utilized in propelling the narrative forward.

A movie that deserves to be on VHS and DVD.Reviewed bywjm13Vote: 7/10

Any Rock Hudson or Burl Ives fan would have to agree this is a movie that needs to be seen in order to fully appreciate these actors' work because both performances are outstanding. The Jerry Goldsmith music is noteworthy as well. This is not a "great" movie and it always struck me as having too weak an ending, but the scenes and performances (especially Hudson and Ives together) are above average. The minor roles of the Sultan and the witch doctor Burubi are also worth seeing.

With such bad movies on DVD it's sad this film is being overlooked (I'd have to assume it's a legal problem regarding rights.) TV viewing (when it appears that is!) doesn't do it justice since I've seen it edited into sheer confusion and it really should be seen in widescreen and remastered in digital sound! There are truly memorable scenes that you'll always recall - the rats fleeing the village and Hudson being guided through the jungle (anyone who has seen the film will know exactly what I mean!) There are also comic moments as well. I just recently discovered an old battered copy of the novel and reading the party scene where chaos breaks out reminded me how much I'd like to see this movie UNCUT again!

Hopefully - sometime in the near future - this minor gem will be released!

A great example of the term "Memorable Movie"Reviewed bynorman1066Vote: 8/10

"The Spiral Road" has stuck in my memory ever since I saw it on TV decades ago, and I have always wanted to see it uncut and widescreen. The supporting roles are uniformly good: especially Gena Rowlands, in confident and alluring form as the sophisticated Els (and still turning in moving performances as of 2005's "The Notebook"). But this is largely a two-man vehicle for Burl Ives and Rock Hudson--and especially in the concluding scenes, nearly a one-man tour-de-force for Hudson. This is not the shallow handsome-guy Rock often had to play. He makes the most of the chance to display depth and intensity as the arrogant, atheistic city doctor who comes to the jungle with scorn for the locals, and especially for missionaries. Burl Ives shows neither the sentimental cuteness of "Frosty the Snowman" nor the over-the-top bombast of Big Daddy in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"--his Dr. Jansen is kind and realistic, a savvy jungle survivor and a practical mentor. Notably, for a film with a clear eye toward colonialist excesses, missionaries are not stereotyped here, but we see examples of both self-righteous culture-tramplers and people of self-sacrificing faith. Ives delivers my favorite line: "Out here in the jungle, the Lord has a way of sorta putting his thumb on people that don't believe in him."
