Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
I do not understand the abbreviation "MQs" Don. Like you, I find John Wayne's films a whole lot more palatable than his politics. The same goes for Gary Cooper, who did not exactly cover himself with glory when it came to standing by his mates. John Wayne never made a film as cringingly embarrassing to watch as "Gone With The Wind". In that one I spent every second feeling sorry for the actors and thinking, "The poor sods have got to pretend that they take all this tosh seriously!"
Errol Flynn's "Robin Hood" is high camp and plain ridiculous, but it is also splendid entertainment.
Possibly one of those "true to life" gritty Northern dramas made in cheap black and white in the sixties is the worst film ever made. They often do not even have the saving grace of being funny by accident.
