r 9 It's a really sweet story, but the execution of it to bring it to our screens is disappointing. The A to B of 'Never Say Goodbye' is rather endearing, with people reconnecting. However, how the film fills in the blanks is kinda shoddy. I found a lot of the dialogue to be cringeworthy and the way characters act came across as irritating. I will say most of that stems from the final 30 or so minutes, it's a tad more solid up until that point. The cast members themselves are good, it's all well acted. Rock Hudson, Cornell Borchers and George Sanders are all decent value. The look of the film is also pleasant enough. I just wish the production itself, namely on the writing side, was more well made. Clint Eastwood has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it uncredited role, though is named - as 'Will'. Still a fair few films until his career really got going. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review ashley h Never Say Goodbye is a disappointing film. It is about Dr. Michael Parker who unexpectedly runs into his German-born wife whom he thought was dead. Rock Hudson and George Sanders give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Jerry Hopper did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
