Editorial Reviews

Directed and co-scripted by Daniel Taradash (From Here To Eternity), this reflection on the rights and responsibilities of citizens was a timely response to Anti-Communist sentiment in the 1950's. A small town librarian (Bette Davis) stands up to local pressure to remove a controversial book from the shelves - on principal, not out of sympathy for its perspective. Also co-stars Brian Keith (Tight Spot, and TV's A Family Affair) and Kim Hunter (A Streetcar Named Desire). Newly remastered.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had never heard of this movie before but I bought it because Bette was in it. She lives in a small town & she runs the public library. There is a book about communist that the town want's taken out of the library. She refuses. not because she believes in that but because she thinks any book should be allowed. And many years before she had joined clubs that it turn out the communist were behind. At the time she joined she did not know this but as soon as she found out she quit. But the town did not care about this. They branded her. There was a little boy that loved to read & was very close to her but he had a jurk of a father that did not want his son's nose in a book all the time so he bad mouth her to the son & he started to hate her. He got so angry he set the library on fire. Brian Keith played a man who it totally down on her also & did not bother to find out the truth & caused more trouble for her. Bette has her own way of talking & in the movie she is a very strong woman. And she is a believer also. She was also putting across the stupitidy of people who don't bother to find out the truth.

There is no mention of this film being remastered on the packaging itself, but Amazon's Editorial Review found above does state that it has been done. I am pleased to say that the video and audio quality are indeed excellent. My only complaint is the usual lack of extras on these overpriced DVD-Rs. The only extra here is the theatrical trailer.

This movie is little known and that's a pity. This is something I could watch over and over again. Bette Davis plays a librarian who will not remove a book from the shelf, even though it's Communist propaganda. People in the town complain about the book to the local politicians, so they confront her on it and ask her to remove the book. She refuses to budge, so they dismiss her from her duties at the library. A little boy who is close to her then becomes mixed up and is torn between his love for books and the librarian and what his parents/the local media/the townspeople say. He loses his mind, resulting in tragic consequences.

Anyone wanting a good review should not visit IMDB's message boards; too many there say this movie is awful. I don't know what they're going on. I guess they're too ignorant to realize that the Communist panic of the 1950s was very real and did indeed happen. This movie kept my attention when so many can't. I advise people to give this movie a chance. Forget the decade in which it was released, and forget the Communist angle. Even today, there are still those who would like to ban certain music, movies and books. For anyone who's against censorship, or a Bette Davis fan, or someone who loves books/trips to the library, this movie is a must-watch.
