Description
Helen Chernen wants to get herself and her talented kid sister Katie out of their jerkwater hometown. And if that means using people and throwing them away, that’s what Helen will do.
Biting, observant, set against a glittery show-biz backdrop, The Hard Way has earned its reputation as one of Hollywood’s great melodramas. Among the film’s many fine performances, two stand out. Jack Carson, typically cast in comic roles, is powerfully affecting as a song-and-dance man whose kind heart is no match for Helen’s ruthless wiles. And Ida Lupino is pitch-perfect as Helen, etching an indelible portrait of twisted ambition that won her the 1943 New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actress.

        The Hard Way contains excellent acting by all the cast. Joan Leslie is best despite her young age of 17. She fills the part from young HS graduate to mature adult perfectly.

        THE BEST OF THE WORST

          Comments about this product:

          One of the first lines in the film says it all: "Tell me, miss, why did you do it?" Cut to Ida Lupino, in a hospital bed, SOAKING WET after having jumped into the Hudson River, (but who looks perfectly coiffed to me) who thinks out loud: "WHY? WHY? They ask me why!" Lda overacts her little smoking heart out in this film and ruins everyone's life at the same time. Don't miss this one. I've been waiting for this to be released on DVD for almost 20 years.
