Enchantment | Chicago Reader


Producer Sam Goldwyn's penchant for the moldier forms of British rhetoric suffocates this 1948 romance, though fragments of an interesting story line (derived from a novel by Rumer Godden) remain. David Niven is the aging aristocrat who looks back on his unhappy love life, prompted by the wartime billeting of his American granddaughter (Teresa Wright) in his London flat. Irving Reis's direction is conspicuously devoid of the title quality; he opts instead for a deadly literalness, which serves only to underline the exaggerated restraint of the players. With Evelyn Keyes, Farley Granger, and Jayne Meadows; photographed (though unexceptionally) by Gregg Toland.
