I’d be interested in reading your piece. I’ve enjoyed the movie for over 50 years. It has some stodginess, as do many transfers to the screen of classic Broadway shows (Guys and Dolls comes to mind). But, “a mess”? That’s the way I categorize A Chorus Line or (forgive me bringing it up) Mame. You’ve also impugned Cukor as a director who doesn’t understand pace. His name isn’t on Gone with the Wind but is on AdamsRib, The Women, Philadelphia Story, Star is Born among other excellent films.
