All My Sons 1948 Edward G Robinson Burt Lancaster Drama
Stars: Edward G. Robinson, Burt Lancaster, Mady Christians
All My Sons tells the story of Joe Keller, a successful, middle-aged, self-made man who did a terrible and tragic thing. He framed his business partner for a crime and engineered his own exoneration. Now, his son is about to marry the partner’s daughter, the affair is revisited, and his lie of a life is unraveled.
Edward G. Robinson gave us an outstanding performance as the conflicted individual, who did a horrible thing for his own selfish-interests only to escape prosecution yet see his partner jailed.
This is a story of intense inter-family conflicts. The partner’s daughter was to be married to Joe’s son Larry. The picture begins with the fact that Larry is missing in action. Ann, played by Louisa Horton, is now becoming engaged to Joe’s other son, Chris, played with marvelous insight by a young Burt Lancaster. Mady Christians is also a standout as Joe’s devoted wife. She is in denial that Larry is probably dead and what her husband did was wrong.
This is a terrific film dealing with moral conflict and the ultimate tragic resolution to it.
Tagline: All your days you will remember … all my sons.
