Critic Reviews for The Clock
This rapturous wartime romance, starring Judy Garland and Robert Walker, is also a rowdy and tender paean to the liberating vitality of New York's public life and its chance encounters.
Director Vincente Minnelli's talents are so many-sided and generous that he turns even the most over-contrived romanticism into something memorable.
Like all the best melodramas, it shows us how society is set up to keep our hopelessly ambiguous interior worlds in check. But all you have to do is look at Garland to feel that racing pulse beneath the skin...she knew that love is anxiety.
Billed in some circles as the original Before Sunrise, Vincente Minnelli's The Clock doesn't come particularly close to reaching those hallowed grounds, but its structure and conclusion certainly make the comparison understandable.
Audience Reviews for The Clock
Two people meet, fall in love at first sight, and get married the end. Interesting and sweet, but predictable and silly at the same time.
Very romantic and emotional. Certain parts are so corny but somehow, before you realize it, your spirit is captured and floating away with the emotion in the film.
sweet gentle low key film with a non-singing Judy.
