The People (1972)
Top Customer Reviews
It was so refreshing to see Darby's work in this film and it reminded me of all the reasons I like her as an actress. She has that wonderful knack of playing, such that her lines emerge as completely spontaneous thoughts. Even when she recites Thoreau to one of the students, she has to think it through, remembering each phrase as it comes to mind. Very good work.
Sadly, the quality of the print sold here is atrocious. It seems to be copied from a VHS and the second half of the film is out of synch between picture and sound. This all but ruins Carmen Coppola's score and the entire dramatic climax is severely diminished due to this technical glitch. As a film maker, I cannot believe that the creators of this haunting piece of work would wish to see it screened in this fashion, and we, as customers, deserve better, too. Most of us bought this film, I believe, because it somehow touched us as young people, and we wanted to relive the experience. As much as I wanted to laugh and cry again over the story, I only found myself crying over this desecration of Zenna Henderson's simple, touching work.
I don't regret getting the movie but glad I purchased it knowing what to expect or I would have been VERY disappointed!

This is a crappy copy off a TV. It opens up so blurred it's difficult to discern what you are seeing. As others have said, this is a great story but a truly crappy transfer. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Scott D. Hootman
