Watch Our Town - Alternative Versions.
OUR TOWN is a timeless classic, and this 1940 film version captures the
major themes from Thornton Wilder's great play.
At once simple and profound, unsentimental and heart-breaking, the
story of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, and its citizens is a time
capsule of early 20th Century America. Two neighboring families are
examined in their everyday lives, and we especially follow George Gibbs
(William Holden) and Emily Webb (Martha Scott) as they grow up and
A stage convention, the Stage Manager (Frank Craven), acts here as a
tour guide and talks directly to the audience and tells them the
history of the town and stories about the characters. Independent of
time, the Stage Manager can also see into the future and
matter-of-factly see the various deaths of several characters as well
as their pasts.
The scene from the cemetery is chilling yet is quite wondrous as the
characters there ponder the timelessness of the universe. Also great is
Emily's visit back to her family on her birthday, where she finally
understand that life is made up or so many small and insignificant
details that we hardly notice as times flies by.
The film boasts a terrific cast with Fay Bainter and Beulah Bondi
outstanding as the mothers , Thomas Mitchell and Guy Kibbee solid as
the fathers. Also notable are Doro Merande as Mrs. Soames, Arthur Allen
as the professor, Philip Wood as the organist, Spencer Charters as the
constable, Stu Erwin as the milkman, and Ruth Tobey as Rebecca, who
gets to tell the "mind of god" anecdote.
The ending is different from the play's but works well in this version.
This is a film that badly needs restoration
