Bigger than Life

Dir: Nicholas Ray
Starring: James Mason, Walter Matthau

Much like James Mason in Bigger than Life, Narry B got caught up using Cortosine, and ended up off his face for the whole of 1956.

Mason went one step further and tried to change the American educational system before attempting to sacrifice his son in some kind of Biblical rite of passage.

In comparison with Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, Mason's teeth are in much better condition here, which gives the whole film a much "cleaner" feeling. That's not the only thing to love about Bigger than Life: Nicholas Ray's use of DeLuxe Color Cinemascope is another outstanding feature... even now there's something analogically gorgeous about it.

Rating: Great
