Watch Donovan's Reef - Alternative Versions.
My conceptions about the South Pacific were formed when I saw this
movie at the Elm Theatre in Brooklyn growing up. It has an honored
place in my collection.
First off that music does get you. Every John Ford film is marked by a
great use of music, in his westerns the use of traditional western
themes pace the action. Here in Donovan's Reef the music under the
credits sets the mood for the story set on this South Seas Paradise.
Secondly this was the last film that John Ford made with John Wayne. I
believe this is the most successful actor/director relationship in the
history of film by just about any standard you want to use, box office,
quality of work, etc. The partnership went out on a high note.
John Wayne's westerns are usually a self contained world that operates
on the principles of his universe. This film does also, but here it is
more believable. This mixed group of people really do know the secret
of living and let living. And the outside world occasionally does
intrude and violently as the World War II background of the principal
This is also a film about believing stereotypes. John Wayne, Lee Marvin
and the rest of the island believe Elizabeth Allen will be a racist.
She's hurt by the abandonment of her father (Jack Warden) but she does
come to accept her half-siblings. The film is anti-racist, but it also
teaches a great moral lesson in not making your mind up about people
The comedy as in all Ford films is heavy handed, but I still crack up
at Wayne and Marvin and their escapades.
This is what the definition of escapist entertainment is.
