I saw The Clock (1945) this afternoon on TCM for more than the fifth time—and was struck with:
1- The super real performance of Judy Garland as Alice-we feel like she is a personal friend…
2- The personable Robert Walker as Joe—Could this be the same actor who Hitch directed as Bruno Antony in Strangers on a Train (1951) ? Talk about casting again type!
3- The usual extraordinary support from James Gleason as milkman Al Henry and Keenan Wynn as the Drunk—never to be taken for granted.
4- The world of 1940’s NYC crowds brought back to life on MGM sets by Vincent Minnelli’s camera.
