The Children’s Hour (1961) Film Review

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