Delightful way to spend time
- el debbo
This is my idea of a 5-star movie. Excellent story and actors, good production values, lots of love. Margaret O'Brien is splendid and this is the first time I've watched James Craig up close and personal...he was perfect! I found him to be very magnetic. I adored the street scenes...the neon shirt-front, the pies coming up through the sidewalk. Nice to see all the supporting types we've known for years, albeit a few with pretty rich faux-English accents. Donald Meek was funny, getting off the elevator in Mike's building and saying "Oh dear!". It was a wonderful story about the magic of love and the ties that bind. I really like this movie and am so glad it's on dvd.
Lost Angel Margaret O'Brien
- Carol Nichols
Today is my first time seeing this movie. Miss OBrien doesn't disappoint. I loved her in "Journey for Margaret', 'Jane Eyre', The Canterville Ghost' and 'Meet Me In St. Louis'. While the story here is sweet and somewhat interesting. Margaret O'Brien carried the movie. (4 stars)
A Lost Gem
- Duane Couchot-Vore
When I caught this movie on TCM a few years ago I fell in love with it immediately. It was full of laughs, sentiment, wonder, and -- yes -- magic. Margaret O'Brien dazzled me with her performance; it's hard to watch the film without also falling in love with her. It was with deep disappointment that I looked it up and found that it had never been committed to either VHS or DVD. What an oversight! I kept checking every few months, and when I learned that it had at last come to DVD, I bought a copy without delay. This film is a treasure that should have been released to home video a long, long time ago.
Ending was cut off!
- Desert Lady
For some reason the ending was abruptly cut off just as Mike found Alpha sick. I hope there will be another showing soon. It was a great movie.
- Dorothy Secret
It was a wonderful story but I never got to see the end. It stopped when Mike found that Alpha was sick. Please will you be showing it again soon!!
MOVING AND SENSITIVE
I was so moved by the spirit that comes through Margaret O'brien in this movie. She is very sweet and beautiful and eloquent. It is a gem that I wish I could watch over many times but have only seen once on TCM. She has a spirit lifting and lovable quality. Something very special and timeless in a child so young. I was so moved by her. Would love to have this film on dvd. The greatest ! Thankyou TCM! PLEASE MAKE A DVD OF LOST ANGEL!
"Lost Angel" with Margaret Obrian
- Richard Craig
Love this movie. Please show it again.
- william garrett
I can't believe this heart warming 1944 movie that creates a smile in almost every scene is not available for sale! It is such a wonderful movie on so many levels and Margaret O'brien makes the whole thing click. Great script, direction, casting, .. just can't say enough good things about it. Very dissappointing not to be able to purchase it and share it with others.
- Kevin Cardiff
"Lost Angel" is a wonderful movie, in my opinion. Margaret O'Brien is mesmerizing as Alpha. It's so interesting to see this precocious child grow up. So sad it's not available (yet) for home video.
I am so disappointed that this movie is still unavailable in any sort of release. Fans of Margaret O'Brien would certainly fall in love with it, as they did Meet Me in St. Louis, for her acting is just as captivating. I saw this on TCM several years ago and fell in love with the original story and the precious lead role, "Alpha." Yes, It seems to be a pretty rare film these days, but as others have suggested, why not pair it with some better known Margaret O'Brien films like Little Women, Meet me in St. Louis, Canterville Ghost, etc. in a collectors dvd of sorts?
- Richard DeLauter
A great movie! Feel good as an innocent child helps you believe in others. Please make this available as a home video either individually or as part of a Margaret O'Brien collection.
A Lost Treasure
- Leah Davis
Lost Angel, with the wonderful child actor, Margaret O'Brien, was such a great movie. I saw it once over 30 years ago and never forgot it. I finally looked it up on IMDb. She had such a sparkly personality and was so charming. I am glad I finally located information on this movie. I hope I can see it sometime. She did another great job in Jane Eyre. Leah Davis
Maggie Really Sparkles
I happened upon this film on TV when I was a little boy. There was an adorable little girl happily gobbling spaghetti in a posh night club, and engaging in what sounded like very mature conversation with the gentleman at her table. As I tried to make sense of the dialog, the little girl suddenly launched into a fit of tears so convincing, I had to ask my mom whether she was acting, or something awful had actually happened to her! That was fifty years ago, and I have been in love with Margaret O'Brien ever since. Although "Journey for Margaret" was her first big role, "Lost Angel" is the first picture that really let Margaret's star sparkle. If you need a "warm and fuzzy", watch this movie.
What real Love is all about
- Steve Perry
One of the best movies I have ever seen...back when they had real actors, instead of all special effects, like movies of today
Margaret O'Brien's Best Role
This movie made me a Margaret O'Brien fan. The chemistry between her and James Craig is completely believable (especially because she really did have a crush on this Clark Gable wannabe). The dialogue sparkles. I stumbled onto it by accident and now it's one of my favorite movies. Marsha Hunt is also a standout as the girlfriend.
This is such a great movie. I believe it was shown around February of last year. I have been waiting and hoping each month since then that it would be shown again. Please schedule this movie soon.
PLEASE schedule this movie!
This is such a great movie and I would truly be grateful if you schedule this movie.
