  1. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Donovan's Reef

    Ford at his lightest and most Hawksian. With the lovely scenery, lovely cast, and a soundtrack that does luau versions of "Yankee Doodle" and "Frere Jacques", it's an easy-going, pluralistic post-war island paradise. Give or take some retrograde sexuality and the fact that a 1963 Ford film about pluralism is still bound to be pretty ethnocentric, this charmer sails on the warmth of its community. An underrated gem.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Donovan's Reef

    Dans un décor en permanence enchanteur, une peinture d'un certain bonheur de vivre, parsemée de bagarres et d'humour un peu frustre. La dernière collaboration entre John Ford et John Wayne : un bon moment de cinéma... www.cinefiches.com
