Down the Ancient Stairs

Far away from fascism, this closed world is rules over by Dr. Bonaccorsi, a passionate benevolent psychiatrist whose dream is to isolate the germ of madness.

His well-ordered universe starts being challenged with the coming of Anna, a trainee psychiatrist, who disapproves of his theory on the origin of madness. Worse, she resists his advances. As Bonaccorsi is more insecure than he looks, what will become of him

Ashley H (es) wrote: To look at Summer Stock you wouldn't think there were any challenges. Everyone seems to be having a happy time. The remarkable thing is how Judy Garland's weight problems, due to over eating and drugs, were covered up. She looks fresh and bubbly along with her co-star, Gene Kelly. The two are perfectly paired and with the comedy of Phil Silvers and "other woman" of Gloria DeHaven, this musical comes off swimmingly. A must see if you are a fan of Judy Garland.

Kendall I (nl) wrote: I had to watch this in history class. PLOT:John Adams (William Daniels) is an arrogant and obnoxious Patriot who is fighting Congress for American Independence with his partners in the Declaration Committee, Benjamin Franklin (Howard Da Silva) and Thomas Jefferson (Ken Howard) as the Revolution is occurring, but Jefferson's personal problems, tolerance of the Declaration's rules, and trying to get the whole thing accepted is a trouble. It's a good subject to make a movie on-but a musical? It's executed decently considering the fact that it's based off a '69 musical. ACTING:Very good acting. The shiners are Daniels and Da Silva. They have friend chemistry and spark interest in the characters. SCORE:The score is composed very well and is very patriotic. The soundtrack has its ups and downs. Some songs where the singers can't sing worth a crap are "Yours Yours Yours" and "The Lees of Virginia". Some beautiful songs are "Momma Look Sharp" and "Molasses to Rum". Some just plain silly songs are "The Egg" and "He Plays the Violin". The soundtrack overall is not too bad considering it's a historical musical. OTHER CONTENT:Some may argue that the historical accuracy isn't too good, but I say that it's pretty well researched, for we have learned this stuff in history class this past week. I will admit, it left out a few things. It's pretty accurate in basics though. Though this movie is so stupid it's funny and cheesy to the extreme, it's supposed to be. It's a BROADWAY COMEDY MUSICAL! It's cheesy in a way that it's campy, but not well enough executed to be considered good. Even in some scenes, it helps you feel the dread of this time's war and loss. OVERALL, an ok musical with a decently executed plot, great acting, patriotic score and not too bad of a soundtrack, pretty good historic accuracy, a thin layer of campiness, and actual feeling.

EQ R (es) wrote: A flawed script and characters who don't get the polishing that they need, keep this film from being great. Potential is not entirely wasted though seeing as the performances from both Wahlberg and Crowe are the best with what they are given and it turns out to be very entertaining with a few nice twists thrown in. "Broken City" still seems to hold itself together to entertain us. B

Orlok W (gb) wrote: This would be just an average studio movie but for a clever premise (Mayans flee across the Gulf of Mexico to establish a community in North America) and Yul Brynner's stunning screen presence... Giants of a lost world--'Kings of the Sun' is the story of a civilization burst into full flower, filmed beautifully in Chichn Itz, Yucatn - Mexico, J. Lee Thompson's motion picture is colorful and highly entertaining... Tacky but fun pre-Columbian Western!!
