Tea and Sympathy

Dated and bowdlerized but nonetheless sincere, Vincente Minnelli's 1956 'Scope version of a Robert Anderson play—adapted by the author, with Hays Office censorship—is about a persecuted, effeminate schoolboy taken under the wing of an older woman, with John Kerr and Deborah Kerr (no relation) re-creating their stage roles. The result may be less memorable or celebrated than Minnelli's other 'Scope melodramas (The Cobweb, Home From the Hill, Some Came Running), but it's still probably better than most contemporary movies. With Leif Erickson, Edward Andrews, and Darryl Hickman.
