The Reviews for Unconquered (1947) 720p

Typical overblown DeMilleReviewed byBrianGVote: 4/10

Cecil B. DeMille was one of the pioneers of the American film industry, and you have to give him credit for that. He was also one of the first to pack his films with gratuitous sex and violence, and you have to give him credit for that. He got away with it by inserting preachy moral "messages" that proved the "evil" of everything he had just shoved in your face, and you have to give him credit for that. His films were enjoyable in a goofy sort of way, but that doesn't apply to this one.

There's one thing that DeMille could never be accused of, and that's cutting corners. His movies were expensive, and they looked it. They were usually also packed with well-known stars such as Gary Cooper and Charlton Heston. The one thing that few of his movies had, though, was a coherent script, and this movie is a prime example. Stars, production values, spectacle...whatever advantages this film has are sunk by the absolutely idiotic dialogue the actors are forced to spew out. You have to wonder what the actors were thinking as they were reciting this drivel. You also have to wonder what the writers were thinking as they were whipping this junk up; didn't they realize that people don't even _remotely_ talk or act like they do in this movie? Everything in this film is overblown, overheated and overdone. The only other one of DeMille's films I can think of offhand that goes even further over the edge is "Northwest Mounted Police," which is so jaw-droppingly awful it should be classified as a comedy.

As long as you realize what you're getting into, the movie is fun in a goofball, campy sort of way. If you're looking for anything else, forget it.

One sixpence too farReviewed byAlex da SilvaVote: 7/10

It's 1763 and we have a good guy Gary Cooper (Chris) and a bad guy Howard da Silva (Garth). They should be on the same side in the war for the American territories but da Silva is siding with the Indians and secretly selling them weapons. Convicted killer Pauline Goddard (Abby) is a slave girl that is caught in the middle of both their plans.

It's interesting to see that Hollywood films in 1947 portrayed arms sellers as the bad guys whereas in complete contrast, we celebrate arms dealing as a good thing today. This has been recently highlighted when Donald Trump very publicly signed an arms deal with Saudia Arabia of all countries! And it was heralded as a good thing – media just reported it as a matter of fact without any sense of criticism. I was shocked. But then again, this is nothing new. When I was a boy, I lived near a house that I'd walk passed on a daily basis that had Picassos on the wall, that sort of thing. It's owner – a friend of the Royal Family and very open arms dealer – Khashoggi. It's everywhere and we don't seem to have a moral compass on this issue. We are a country of Howard da Silvas and no-one blinks an eye. That's where capitalism has taken us. I think we should be reigning things in. So, in line with current thinking, da Silva should come out on top. Thankfully, this is Hollywood.

The cast are very good although it is funny how Goddard has a constant supply of lipstick and shampoo to make her hair nice and fluffy throughout the film. No criticism on her acting, though – she is a good female lead. And Cooper, whilst maybe a little old for the role, still has the star quality to carry the film. It's a good epic film to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon or whenever you have some time.

Haven't seen this much ham since I toured the Jimmy Dean packing companyReviewed byhelpless_dancerVote: 7/10

I enjoyed this film, but the acting was so overblown, especially by Paulette Goddard, that I had to laugh during many of the more tense situations. Hollywood really did a number on pre-revolutionary America when they cast Karloff as the Chief of the cutthroat redskins out to relieve Coop and crew of their freshly styled coiffures. However, I did like De Silva's hammy portrayal of the villainous gunrunner intent on getting the girl and a large portion of land. Entertaining show, but very little history or realism, but then, that is not what I was after or expecting.
