Anthony Adverse (29-Jul-1936)|
Director: Mervyn LeRoy
Writer: Sheridan Gibney
From novel: Anthony Adverse by Hervey Allen
Music by: Erich Wolfgang Korngold
Keywords: Romantic Drama
An orphan is unknowingly apprenticed to his grandfather, then has adventures in Europe, Cuba and Africa in this lengthy adaptation of Hervey Allen's exceedingly long novel. Gale Sondergaard won the first-ever Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and there was also Oscars awarded for Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Score. A good film created with a high budget, but it has not aged well and it is difficult to believe it was nominated for Best Picture.
