All time best movie voices ever together in one wo

by Teri Lefever on 4/8/2009

John Steinbeck's short stories Cannery Row and Sweet Tuesday come together in this endlessly charming, quirky romance Cannery Row. It's hard to imagine a community with this much collective and individual personality: the college educated Doc (Nick Nolte), the naive call girl Susie (Debra Winger), and a supporting cast of characters so strongly drawn they could have their own movie and it would hold its own. Nolte and Winger have two of the most interesting voices in Hollywood; add in laconic narration by another amazing voice, John Huston, as well as the lazy, loopy jazzy soundtrack, and you have an auditory delight even if the story was not so much fun to watch. You know boy and girl will meet, be attracted, clash and fight and finally get together, but you have never seen it done (with frogs, octopi, and a huge black Abraham Lincoln) quite like this before.

Editors Note
Note This delightful cinematic adaptation of the 1945 classic by John Steinbeck stars Nick Nolte and Debra Winger as a carelessly romantic couple who experience the impoverished life of vagabonds. Doc (Nolte) is a marine biologist who just moved to Cannery Row, a rustic oceanside village. Before long, he discovers that the only local entertainment is the brothel. That's where he meets Suzy (Winger)--a spunky, husky-voiced wanderer--who makes Doc's life on the Row a whole lot brighter. But before long their romance turns sour. Everyone on the Row hopes they'll reconcile, especially since their love for each other is the most important thing either one of them has.
