DVD Talk review of 'The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit'

I read DVD Savant's DVD review of The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=16828 and...while a favorable and almost unjudgemental perception towards Gregory Peck in the fifties consolidated, following creditable performances in 'Duel in the Sun'; 'Yellow Sky'; 'The Gunfighter'; '12 O'Clock High', etc., there is no geting away from the cinematic treacle that was made out of Sloan Wilson's decent write - and Peck was not alone in having failed to grasp here the emotional issues of his character, beyond the standard token gestures in the script.

Savant might eventually care to revisit 'Not as a Stranger', 'Ten North Frederick', 'The Young Philadelphians', 'The Bramble Bush',
'From the Terrace', 'Middle of the Night' and
'Tender is the Night' (1962), instead, in order to share his thoughts afterwards regarding more accomplished melodramatic literary adaptations, proper casting (particularly more fitting for Jennifer Jones' role in the latter) and subtler acting.
