Rating: 4/5 -- Let there be no doubt about it. Vivien Leigh is as fine an actress as we have on the screen today. Maybe even the finest, and that's a lot to say. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on the play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert E. Sherwood, WATERLOO BRIDGE stars Vivien Leigh as Myra, a shy ballerina whose life is irrevocably altered in war-torn London. It's love at first sight when Myra meets handsome, aristocratic British officer Roy Cronin (Robert Taylor) in the midst of an air raid. The couple soon plans to wed, but Cronin is called to the front, and shortly thereafter a newspaper reports his death. Forced out of ballet school, alone and destitute, Myra turns to prostitution. When she discovers that the newspaper report was inaccurate, Myra is unable to tell Cronin about her professional life, and tragedy ensues. This 10-handkerchief weeper was directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Joseph Ruttenberg's photography is beautiful, as is the inspired soundtrack by Herbert Stothart (THE WIZARD OF OZ), but what makes WATERLOO BRIDGE is Leigh's stunning performance and the very real chemistry between her and Robert Taylor.

Plot Synopsis:

WATERLOO BRIDGE is a moving love story about a ballerina who turns to prostitution when she believes her lover was killed at war.

Production Notes:

  • Like 1939, 1940 was one of the great years of Hollywood cinema. Having just received the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1939, Leigh's performance in WATERLOO BRIDGE was ignored in favor of drop-dead performances in competing films, including OUR TOWN, THE GRAPES OF WRATH, THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, and KITTY FOYLE.
