Magnificent Obsession

108 minutes

Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman star in Douglas Sirk's 1954 version of the Lloyd C. Douglas novel about a playboy who becomes a doctor in order to restore the eyesight of a woman he's carelessly blinded. Robert Taylor and Irene Dunne starred in the John M. Stahl original in 1935, and the difference between the two versions is the difference between a sincerely melodramatic sensibility (Stahl) and a coolly formal approach to otherwise unwieldy projects (Sirk).
