The Children’s Hour (1961) Film Review C

The Children's Hour
DIRECTOR: William Wyler
BOTTOM LINE: Unfortunately, Wyler was stuck between two periods. 1961 was unprepared for an all-out gay film, so he had to be furtive. Not having the courage of his convictions, what started as bravery ended in cowardice, and it’s a shame. If he had waited until 1970, he could have had a triumph. There are moments, from MacLaine in particular, but they are not enough.
