However, when the forthright Dr. D.R. Cartwright (Anne Bancroft) joins the mission, she is not afraid to come into direct conflict with the humorless Andrews, which earns her the respect of the other missionaries.

      Richard Brody New Yorker [It] has one of the greatest endings in the history of cinema. Apr 14, 2020 Full Review Keith Uhlich Slant Magazine 7 Women is, in actuality, a great film whose potboiler plot masks an incisive inquiry into the battle of the sexes. Rated: 4/4 Apr 13, 2005 Full Review Pauline Kael McCall's This picture is more absurd than the deliberate spoof movies, because each cliché character and situation is played in apparent earnest; it’s almost deadpan farce. Sep 20, 2023 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Those that have seen it consider it one of Ford's finest achievements, but it's still a relatively unknown film. Jan 10, 2014 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Thankfully Ford skips his usual sentimentality and cornball humor and drives home a hard-hitting period drama. Rated: A- Feb 27, 2013 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Boasting top-notch cast, John Ford's very last, underestimated film celebrates the strength of women in dire conditions.

      John A Lacking in the thematic and characterization departments however it is serviceable as a competently made popcorn flick featuring an edgy performance from Bancroft Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/27/24 Full Review kevin w John Ford's final effort is about Christian women missionaries in China during the 1930s and allows the rip-roaring director to figuratively dot some "i's" and cross some "t's" before leaving the game altogether. For instance, although he's famed as a bit of a chauvinist, he perhaps respected women far more than anyone knew. In this film for instance, featuring mainly a female cast, he shows how he credits a wide range of womanhood, and with nary a trace of make-up anywhere. Anne Bancroft ably leads a good cast (featuring Margaret Leighton and Eddie Albert) as several crises effect the group, the last affair perhaps the ugliest. An interesting work from a renowned director. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review s r I struggled through this one mostly because the themes and characters did not resonate. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The tension between two strong female leads, Leighton's pious missionary and Bancroft's worldly doctor, promises a lot, but unfortunately Ford blows it in the second half as the arrival of the rebel forces shifts the focus from the interesting psychological battle to an uninteresting good-v-evil clash with horrible racial stereotyping. Kudos to Ford for picking such an unlikely subject, but in the end I came away feeling he didn't really know how to handle it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Ultima y dura pelicula de John Ford, gran actuaciòn de Anne Bancroft. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member generally underrated. almost like a fassbinder film! anne bancroft is great in this Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
