Make no mistake. Hilda Crane, which Twilight Time is now offering on Blu-ray, is a soap opera.
But it’s a good one.
With a screenplay by Philip Dunne, (How Green Was My Valley, The Last of the Mohicans, Forever Amber) and derived from the play by Samson Raphaelson, there’s meat on the bones.
And then there’s Jean Simmons.
The new Blu, is from a CinemaScope master provided by Fox, and it looks wonderful, with proper grain, and color that has that has an appropriate deluxe appearance.
Look for Judith Evelyn, a name that you may not recognize (she spent most of her time working in TV), as Hilda’s mother. You may recognize the face from Rear Window, in which she played Miss Lonelyhearts, or from Giant, in which she played Paul Fix’s wife.
