Sirk's view of Chekov July 30 2012
By Z. T. Astner - Published on
Format: DVD
A very peculiar film indeed. Chekov's only novel has been set in postrevolutionary Russia, which is surprising enough, but what for me was even more surprising was to see George Sanders in what I beleive must be his best part ever, or at least as good as the one he creates in Rosellini's Viaggio in Italia. The last fifteen minutes of this movie is filled with one great surprise after the other, and even though I wasn't that interested before, I was truly fascinated to see where Sirk and Sanders took me, and how moved I was, finally, by the whole experience of "Summer Storm".

offbeat but interesting small movie. Feb. 28 2010
By Frankdecavalcante - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This looks like a low budget version of a classic Russian story. But it has the advantage of a fine cast, interesting story, and assured direction. George Sanders, as ever, is outstanding, and Linda Darnell in her vixen mode, is quite good.

Linda's first real chance to shine Nov. 25 2012
By J. Nixon - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Early Hollywood Sirk film presented Linda Darnell with her first real opportunity to show that she had far more talent than the fluffy girl roles she had been handed up to that point. Unfortunately except for rare occasions like Fallen Angel, Hangover Square and A Letter to Three Wives she didn't get many more chances to shine although she was always excellent with the material provided. Aside from her this has an excellent cast all giving fine performances and many hints of the Sirk touch that would bloom fully a few years on.

Chekhov, Hollywood Style July 25 2012
By Harry O - Published on
Format: DVD
A not uninteresting adaptation of Chekhov's "The Shooting Party," with the requisite 1940s Hollywoodization (have peasants ever looked so clean?). One of Douglas Sirk's earliest Hollywood efforts. Begins in 1919, two years after the Russian Revolution, but takes place, via flashback, in 1912, five years before the Revolution, so we get to see an example of a profligate Russian nobleman (a strangely cast Edward Everett Horton). Sanders is very good as the judge whose obsession with a beautiful peasant woman (Darnell) eventually ruins his life. Darnell is certainly sultry and seductive, but there's nothing peasant about her in her early scenes. (Just as a nit-picking point of information: Darnell's name could not have been Olga Kuzminichna; it would have to have been Olga Kuzminovna - just the way patronymics/middle names are formed in Russian.) Certainly worth a look, especially for those who enjoy films from the 1940s.
