Product Description

Mervyn LeRoy's 1940 remake of Waterloo Bridge, based on the play by Robert E. Sherwood, stars Robert Taylor as Scotsman Roy Conin, a middle-aged officer in the British army who reflects--on the eve of Britain's entry into World War II--on lost love during the last Great War. Told in flashback, Roy's ill-fated romance begins in a chance meeting with ballerina Myra Deauville (Vivien Leigh) during a London air raid. In less than two days, Roy's near-obnoxious, aristocratic self-confidence and boyish exuberance sweep Myra off her feet and she agrees to marry him before he ships out for duty in Germany. But there's no time for the wedding, and during what should be a happy first meeting with Roy's mother (Lucile Watson), Myra receives mistaken information that Roy is dead on a battleground. From there, Myra spirals downward into poverty and prostitution, until cruel fortune reveals that Roy is quite alive. While a tearjerker, Waterloo Bridge also says something about wartime conditions where women are caught between pressures of survival (especially where and when women have few options) and social values that condemn them for staying alive by any means. Told as delicately as possible, the film is directed with tasteful straightforwardness by LeRoy (Random Harvest) and the key performances by Taylor and Leigh strike exactly the right melodramatic but not bathetic pitch. Nice work, too, by Virginia Field as Myra's equally luckless friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars une merveille de cinéma April 17 2010
Format:DVD
Enfin ce film en DVD. Introuvable en Europe, j'ai enfin pu l'acquérir via Amazon.ca
Une merveille de cinéma et un drame bouleversant. Waterloo Bridge c'est une histoire d'amour sans mièvrerie où l'intégrité, l'honneur sont les maîtres mots de cette intrigue dure et magnifique.
L'un des plus beaux rôles de Vivien Leigh aprés Autant en emporte le vent.
A découvrir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star-crossed Love... Nov. 6 2001
Format:VHS Tape
One of the most memorable romantic films ever made about star-crossed love, cleaned-up and loosely based on four-time Pulitzer Prize winning playwright and editor Robert E. Sherwood's play. Wounded and appalled by the carnage and devastation of World War I, Sherwood resolved to do all he could to help stop future wars. This attitude appears in his numerous Broadway plays.
Beautifully performed for the screen by Vivien Leigh ("A Streetcar Named Desire", "Gone With The Wind"--her two Oscars)-- as Myra Lester, a fragile ballerina --and Robert Taylor ("Quo Vadis", "Ivanhoe") as Roy Cronin, a young Captain in the Rendleshire 'Broken Lance' Fusiliers, whose chance meeting at Waterloo Bridge amidst an air raid during World War I sets the stage for this tear-jerker of a movie. Very good supporting roles came with Lucille Watson as Lady Margaret Cronin--Roy's mother;her best scene was when she and Myra first met at the restaurant, trying to understand Myra's strange behavior. Maria Ouspenskaya as Madame Kirowa, true to form playing the 'old dragon and broomstick.' Virginia Field as Kitty, Myra's true friend and roommate, who unfortunately eased her towards the wrong side of the street, upon learning (wrongly, as it turned out) of Roy's death. And Sir C. Aubrey Smith as the Duke, Roy's uncle...the quintessential Englishman from his backbone to his stiff upper lip, (he was knighted and made an OBE) giving off that quiet gentility and confidence.
Beautiful and poignant scenes abound in this film: --Roy and Myra's dancing together to the "Auld Lang Syne Waltz" while looking at each other tenderly without any spoken words before he leaves for France....

5.0 out of 5 stars Roy and Myra will steal your heart! Feb. 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"Waterloo Bridge" is a tender love story set in England during WWI. I really love this movie because of the beautiful development of the stars's romance. Robert Taylor is perfect as the aristocratic, dashing Capt. Roy Cronin while Vivien Leigh is captivating as the sweet ballet dancer Myra Lester.
They meet and fall in love during an air raid and share some of the most tender moments on the screen like the beautiful dance at the "Candlelite Club." But their love is put to the test when Myra,who mistakingly thinks Roy's been killed in the war, is dismissed from the ballet company and turns to prostitution as a means of survival.
If you're a romantic like me, you'll enjoy this tearjerker. Roy and Myra's story tugs at the heart and makes you believe in true love again. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance or a well developed story with substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beside GWTW, this is Vivien's best movie Jan. 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is what i'd call "the best movie I have ever seen since GWTW" this movie was the first movie Vivien starred in after GWTW. I heard this movie was also her favorite. I bet I can tell why! Waterloo Bridge, is about a young woman <Leigh> Myra Lester and a young man who's a ballet dancer <Taylor> Roy who is in the army, It starts of where Roy is on the Waterloo Bridge thinking about Myra. It's years after. And then the story starts years before. Roy and Myra meet on Waterloo Bridge during a bomb attack and go under the ground for shelter. Under the ground, they talk together and everything and become very good friends. After Myra's performance, they sneak out to dinner and thats a very memorable scene! Then after a while, they decide to get married, but Myra lost her job. So to raise herself and her friend Kitty, Myra's friend turns to prostitution. Myra turns to it too believing Roy is dead in action as she reads in the paper. But while she's at the station waiting for another man prostitute, Theirs Roy! He takes her with him and they go to get married. When they reach his home, Myra can't keep the secret anymore, and tells his mother Lady Margret. Myra runs away and Roy goes to look for her. Then you see Myra alone on Waterloo Bridge looking over the edge, when army trucks go by. And she starts walking. 1 army truck.....2 army trucks.......3 army trucks.....4 army trucks......And Myra throws herself under it and dies. But in the middle of the street, is her little lucky charm. And Roy somehow later. finds it. And then it goes back to him years after on Waterloo Bridge.
