Critic Reviews for The Country Girl
Based on Odets' play, Seaton's version is an odd, overrated melodrama about co-dependency in alcoholic marriages, with decent turns by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly as the central couple.
The backstage drama, when judged by today's standards, seems stagy, creaky and outdated.
If you enjoy Crosby as a crooner instead of a showman, this is your movie.
Audience Reviews for The Country Girl
This is kind of a wannabe version of All About Eve, if you think about it.
If you ever wanted to see Crosby in a dramatic role instead of a comedy, this is the movie to see. He gives a brilliant performance, as does the rest of the cast. The story is realistic and surprising to the end. I highly recommend this movie.
Okay film with good performances but Grace Kelly winning the Oscar for this performance against Judy Garland in A Star is Born shows the award up as the popularity contest that it is.
