365 Movies: Arrowsmith Review

Arrowsmith stars Ronald Colman and Helen Hayes in this 1931, John Ford film. Doctor Martin Arrowsmith(Colman) puts aside his own health and life, to cure other's. His supportive wife, Leora(Hayes) stands by his side, throughout the whole process, even though at times, she's unhappy with him. I'll give it, that it is a good movie but it's too slow for me. Everything that happens, really drags and it made me wish I could have fast forward through half of it. Ronald(and his spectacular voice!) and Helen are wonderfully sweet together in this and even when Myrna Loy crosses between, they still remain strong. Even with a small role, Myrna Loy is smashing!
