Product Description

Product Description

In Texas in the 1930s, young school teacher Novalyne Price meets a handsome, eccentric and interesting young man named Robert Howard. He's a successful writer of the pulp stories of 'Conan the Barbarian'; she's an aspiring author. A friendship develops into a sort of courtship. Based on a memoir by Novalyne Price. Stars Academy Award® nominee Vincent D’Onofrio and Renée Zellweger (Chicago).

Amazon.ca

Director Dan Ireland shows a talent for authenticity with this heartbreaking love story based on Novalyne Price's 1988 account of her prickly romance with 1930s pulp-fiction writer Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan the Barbarian. She was a schoolteacher in a small Texas town; he was the odd-ball writer who lived at home and created comic-book characters that were sexier and more violent than was considered decent by the locals. Renée Zellweger's performance is a gem of sweet unconventionality matched by Vincent D'Onofrio's powerful show of eccentricity and increasing mental illness. Though smart and feisty, this leaves us wishing the filmmakers had dug deeper into Howard's unusual relationship with his manipulative mother. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
I first saw this film on Showtime(cable TV)and was immediately struck by the chemistry between Vincent D'Onofrio and Renee Zellweger. There is never a slow or dull moment in the movie. You are transported back in time to the 1930s not only by the props, clothes and settings but also by the actions of the actors. They truly capture the era in their portrayals of Robert E. Howard and Novalyne Price, two star-crossed people who wanted to love one another but just couldn't make it happen. This movie has what I would consider to be the MOST PASSIONATE KISS in film history. My spine tingles every time I watch it.
The DVD however, is a disappointment. I don't know who is responsible for re-mixing the film for DVD release but they have OMITTED 12 minutes of the film that really help to tell the story with much more clarity. They have also rearranged some of the scenes to try to camouflage their butcher job. Interestingly enough in the special feature commentary Dan Ireland, Vincent D'Onofrio and a few others begin to comment on an upcoming scene when they realize it is no longer in the picture. They quickly change the subject but not without the viewer picking up on their obvious embarrassment.
The jacket for the DVD shows one of the omitted scenes on the back cover. Personally, I feel that any film that has been remixed, especially when scenes have been deleted for a DVD release, should be labeled as such so the buyer is aware that they are NOT GETTING the same film they may have viewed at the theatre or on TV.
With that said....I would still buy the DVD just for the kissing scene. It is THE BEST!

Format: DVD
I cannot imagine imagine how "Shakespeare in Love", Titanic (lousy script, great computers) and even worse, "American Beauty" got Oscars for actors and films etc. while a film like this which requires true acting is overlooked. While pleasing, many could have performed well in the Shakespeare film both drunk and asleep and I would not have bothered with either of the latter. The "Whole Wide World" had next to nothing by way of props or settings, it was essentially a dialogue between two actors who have to carry us the entire time and do so beautifully. My husband said it best, the Academy Awards are political brown nosing nothing more. I guess it must remain a treasure for those capable of seeing the difference.

Format: DVD
According to the Internet Movie database, the film that this DVD purports to show is 111 minutes long. According to the "technical information" on the left, however, this DVD is only 93 minutes long. What happened to the remaining 18 minutes of this film? This kind of truncation of a good film is as annoying as the dropping of the key final scene in the DVD of "The Big Easy." Columbia Tristar should know better than to offer only about 7/8ths of a film -- particularly a film as good as this one -- and try to pass it off as the whole thing. Because this film is otherwise excellent, it should be shown complete, and I will refrain from buying this truncated version until Columbia Tristar issues it complete.

Format: DVD
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. So much so that I bought it on laserdisc to get in widescreen, even though I didn't have an LD player (I put it on VHS with the help of a friend).
On the LD there are a couple of added scenes. There is a scene where Robert and Novalyne talk about ancestral memories, a scene where lightning strikes a tree as they sit in the car, and I think another scene with Robert's mother talking about his correspondence with HP Lovecraft. Does anybody know if these are on the DVD?
-Thanks

Format: VHS Tape
I have looked forward to seeing this film for quite a while. Finally I got hold of a VHS copy and sat with my wife (and such kids as were interested) and watched it. Impressions: The two principle actors are just about perfect for the roles of Howard and Price. Having been a Howard fan for years, and being familiar with his life's story, I was sceptical that any film would play it straight. But this story seems to not have needed any embellishment to make it more romantic, sad and triumphant. I agree with what one reviewer has already said: that KISS is probably the most passionate I have ever seen in a movie ! And it is important too; because it shows up how hard it is to recapture feelings when things are said (and left unsaid) and love fades away. The timing of their lost love for each other (which was growing by fits and starts first one feeling it, then the other) is what forms Novalyne Price's life-long regret (so I gather from the tone of the story): that had she just said the right things - felt the right things - at the right time, Howard would not have been lost to her. (That constitutes almost a spoiler; and for those who do not know the story I appologize.) But the triumph of the story is also in the ending of it: it has to do with faith and hope.
For those who want a real-life romance, this film is perhaps the best I have seen. It is sort of like "Out of Africa" in that respect; but I enjoyed it far more, because it is about someone (Howard) that I care about.

Format: VHS Tape
As many reviewers here, I happen to watch this movie through the TV without any high expectation. However, the movie proves itself to be such an excellent masterpiece that I immediately decide to buy a copy into my wonderful movie collection. The story, the sence, the actors/actress, the director, everything about the moive is made flawlessly.
The only problem I have and strongly wish the distributor to fix is that the DVD version lost many very touching and romantic sences that impress me so much on TV.. I hate whoever did this to a wonderful movie. I searched every store in my local area to find out the VHS or other DVD version of this movie. But unfortunately get nothing. I do wish the distributor can give out a new version of this movie without any edition. Please keep those beautiful sences!!!
