Happy birthday to one of the stars of KINGS ROW! He also did some other stuff later in life as well.
KINGS ROW (Sam Wood, 1942) is one of my favorites in the crazy, over-the-top, weird-ass 1940s drama category. Implied incest, crazy nymphos, diabolical doctors, amputations, insanity, and then amidst it all a rather touching love story (between the Oomph Girl and the future leader of the free world). Also, hands down, one of the best musical scores of any picture from that era.
