Editorial Reviews

A beautiful divorce?e. An ardent young man. And a love thwarted by a rigid social code. Irene Dunne and John Boles, the stars of Back Street, share another illicit romance in this film version of Edith Wharton's Pulitzer Prize winner, a provocative novel that asserts women have a right to the same freedoms men take for granted. Set in 1870s Manhattan, The Age of Innocence follows a conventionally bred attorney who, although engaged, falls in love with a woman who shocks the upper crust by daring to escape a wretched marriage. The emotion inherent in the clash of personal happiness and social convention is timeless: the story was filmed again almost 60 years later with Daniel Day-Lewis and Michelle Pfeiffer in the lead roles.

By Jay Dickson VINE VOICE on May 16, 2011
Format: DVD
Decades before Martin Scorsese's superb adaptation of Edith Wharton's Pulitzer prize-winning novel, Hollywood tried during its Golden Age to translate the definitive novel of Old New York onto the screen. Although this was thought to be lost for quite a while, this well-produced 1934 version is finally available on DVD. The sets and costumes are much better than you might have imagined, although the production is decidedly stagey, and several of the performances are fairly disappointing. John Boles and Julie Haydon are melodramatic as Newland Archer and his bride, May Welland, and Helen Westley cackles far too much as Mrs. Manson Mingott. The best reason to see this (other than for its oddity as another adaptation of the Wharton novel, and a more faithful one than you'd have thought likely) is Irene Dunne's glowing portrayal of the Countess Olenska. A criminally underrated actor, Dunne was excellent at both drama and comedy during the 30s (and was very popular in musicals to boot, although her soprano trilling is often hard for audiences today to take). Hampered only by a kind of innate primness, Dunne found in this great Wharton character her ideal part, and she's genuinely quite moving in several of her scenes. Although best loved today for her superlative work in screwball comedies (such as THE AWFUL TRUTH and THEODORA GOES WILD), Dunne always wanted to be remembered for her dramatic work, and idealized Katharine Hepburn's performances in the 30s; this film shows her to be fully Hepburn's dramatic peer.

I rec'd this order in yesterday's mail and I watched it last night. Usually I prefer the older movies to the more recent but in the case of this one I prefer the newer movie from the 1990's. Both are very good though and I am glad to have both in my library

A very well done picture if you can stand sad endings. Irene Dunne never looked more fetching.
