  1. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    La mujer que amó y no fue correspondida, el hombre que amó y no correspondió. Se gesta una discordia producto de las conveniencias y los resentimientos. La segunda parte es lo mejor de la película, para cuando los personajes dejan a un costado sus caretas y hacen lo que les plazca, especialmente Jones, quien ahora abraza el poder y, por tanto, la confianza para someter a sus enemigos e incluso al hombre que ama.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    Everything is already in the title here: ´Ruby´as the money needed by Charlton to reconquer his lost plantation and ´Gentry´as the social class the main character won't manage to conquer despite education and wealth. Ironically, we know from the start on that Jennifer Jones won't become Ruby Tackman but Ruby Gentry only. Another King Vidor masterpiece.

  3. Jason's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    Loathsome contemporary-types w/ a propensity for snickering at old movies will doubtlessly find much to guffaw at in RUBY GENTRY, and I will concede that Jennifer Jones and Charlton Heston are not strong actors and tend to benefit when they dial it back a little. However, I can think of few movies made anywhere by anybody EVER that have subtexts this delicious. Marx + Freud and a little Sophocles. Truly fascinating.

  4. Ethan's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    This is an intense and well made film searing with raw emotion with impressive set design and powerhouse performances from all that practically jump off the screen. Stylized melodrama at its most contained.

  5. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    It's interesting how King Vidor who made beautiful silent films and highly respectable and unashamedly emotional dramas in the thirties and forties ended up creating the entertainingly feverish kitschfests "Beyond the Forest," "The Fountainhead," "Duel In The Sun" and "Ruby Gentry." Even with ridiculous scripts, he gives you something to watch. Also, from the evidence of his silent comedies, he had a sense of humor.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    Le sentiment passionné qui lie une jeune sauvageonne issue d'une riche famille et un séducteur de la région donne lieu a un film sulfureux et hautement romantique... >>> A voir absolument !

  7. C's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    Jennifer Jones plays a girl Heathcliff

  8. MarcelVonPure's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    A true gentleman never marries a swamp girl.

  9. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    Very similar to duel in the sand, only the girl isn't as cheeky.

  10. Neil Bahadur's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    #1 on the list of movies that make you just wanna get down

  11. Matt Kovar's rating of the film Ruby Gentry

    I'm certainly a sucker for films that drip with the American South, and Ruby Gentry is told thick in the middle of it. Hands down one of the best movies I've ever seen. Every bit of it - from the fantastic completely overlooked score to the wild story and all in between - Ruby Gentry ranks among the greats.
