PG-13-Thematic Elements involving Rape, and Some Violent Content


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


For a long time, Jane Wyman’s name has always been associated with former US President Ronald Reagan because they were husband and wife. However, Jane Wyman did not rely on Reagan’s help, but on her own hard work, unswervingly and step by step to the throne of stars.

Jane Whitman’s award-winning work is Johnny Belinda. In the film, she plays Johnny Belinda, a deaf and dumb country girl. Belinda lives near the remote Nova Scotia fishing village with her father and aunt. Robert, a new local doctor, met the deaf and dumb Belinda when delivering her cow and was determined to help the poor girl. Robert began to teach Belinda sign language and took her to the city to see a doctor. Belinda changed a lot with Robert’s help. Once Belinda was raped by a drunken sailor and became pregnant with the sailor’s child. The villagers in the isolated countryside cast their suspicious eyes on the kind doctor Robert, who finally chose to leave under the influence of rumors. By chance, Belinda’s father learned the truth and fell off a cliff in the process of fighting with sailors. Since then, Belinda can only depend on her aunt and children, but the foolish villagers still don’t let go of the poor girl. They decide to take the child away from Belinda. Belinda shot and killed the sailor who came to rob the child in order to protect her child. Finally, everything came out in court and Belinda perked up. Jane Wyman is not a deaf mute actor, but there is no line in the whole 102 minute film, but she can vividly reveal the sadness, anger, joy and feelings of deaf mute women with the help of eyes, expressions and gestures. The film was nominated for 11 Oscars, but only Jane Wyman won the first prize. It can be seen how outstanding his acting skills are.

However, for Jane Whitman, making Johnny Belinda is both happy and sad. Sadly, her marriage to Reagan broke up just then. It turned out that after Jane Wyman began to take part in the film at the end of 1947, she always came home every night and found her husband Reagan was not at home. In fact, he is busy with the actors’ Union and other social activities. There was a rift between them. On December 4 of the same year, Jane Wyman appealed to the court for divorce. One of the reasons was that she hated Reagan’s hobby of politics. “I’m not interested in political activities, but he still insisted that I attend many gatherings with him.”. Two years later, shortly after she won the Oscar, the court approved the protracted divorce case.

Jane Wyman, formerly Sarah Jane fox, was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, on January 5, 1914. Her father was mayor of the city, and her mother wanted Jane Wyman to be an actress when she was a child, so she always took her to the theatre every Saturday afternoon. At the age of eight, the mother couldn’t wait to take her daughter to Hollywood to try her luck, but she didn’t have a chance. At the age of fifteen, my father died and my family moved to Los Angeles. At that time, when the U.S. economy was in recession, “my family had nothing but a broken house to escape the cold”. In order to live, I used to be a waitress in a cafe. Later, she became a dancer and performed everywhere. When she returned to Los Angeles, she was encountering Warner Brothers to make a song and dance film children from Spain. She wanted to recruit a group of actors. Jane Wyman was hired, which was her first step towards Hollywood. In 1936, she partnered with the big star Dick Powell in the film “dancing it for 37 years”. She played a playful and difficult song and dance girl and achieved success. Since then, she often played roles in some B-level comedies and song and dance films. With the improvement of her acting skills, she was promoted from supporting role to leading role. In 1945, Jane Whitman played the hero and the lover of an alcoholic writer in the A-level psychological film lost weekend, showing her personalized acting skills. The film has not been released yet, and Hollywood has received a wave of praise. Jane Wyman took another big step towards her goal. In 1946, she excellently played the mother of an innocent child in Luyuan Changchun, and was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for the first time.

After entering the 1950s, Jane Wyman continued to shoot “glass zoo”, “fire of the heart”, “blue whale” and so on. Although there are not many films, some departments have excellent performances. The role types are mainly good wives and mothers, and the acting skills are solid and concise. These characteristics remained until the 1960s. Jane Wyman met Reagan while at Warner Bros. the two made their first collaboration in the film “the thief brothers”, playing a man and a woman who fell in love. Since then, the two sides have developed from goodwill to admiration. Jane Wyman quickly divorced her husband and met Reagan again and again. “We often went to a favorite restaurant and listened to our favorite songs hand in hand,” Jane Wyman recalled many years later. “Reagan proposed to me. It was not romantic at all. When he was preparing to shoot in the studio that day, Reagan turned to me -” Jane! Why don’t we get married, “I couldn’t think of any reason to refuse. In fact, I have been waiting for this sentence for a whole year. As soon as I spit out the word “good”, the director called us to the camera. ”

Reagan gave her a 52 carat amethyst ring as a love gift. On January 20, 1940, the lovers finished their wedding in church. Then go on your honeymoon. Hollywood made a big fuss about this happy marriage, and they both made great progress in their careers. A year later, Jane Wyman gave birth to a daughter named Maureen Elizabeth. During World War II, Reagan spent more time on social activities due to the reduction of films, but Jane Wyman made many excellent works, so that later people called Reagan “Mr. Wyman”. The seeds of their final divorce were buried at this time. After the breakup, Reagan married another Hollywood actor, Nancy Davis, until the end. Jane Wyman was unhappy. She married several men and divorced. In 1961, she married musician Fred Kaga and had two sons. 6、 In the 1970s, Reagan was governor of California twice. Jane Wyman kept as quiet as possible and never talked publicly about his ex husband. In 1980, during Reagan’s presidential campaign, she once again became the focus of attention in the press, but she did not mind that she could not become the first lady: “Reagan left a good impression in my mind. We are good friends and will always be good friends.” Besides movies, the actor is also keen on TV. In 1956, she hosted a series of TV programs entitled Jane Whitman and the family theater. Later, she also made a lot of TV dramas. In 1984, she won the Golden Globe Award for best TV actress.

Reagan later became the first divorced president in American history, and Reagan’s election made Wyman the focus of media attention. However, Wyman is said to never be proud of her ex husband as president, and her aversion to politics is the main reason for her divorce from Reagan. After Reagan became president of the United States, Wyman always refused to talk about Reagan and their marriage in public, and even brushed off in an interview with reporters because he was unwilling to answer such questions. The only exception was when Reagan died in June 2004. Wyman not only issued a statement saying that Reagan was a “great president and noble gentleman”, but also personally attended Reagan’s funeral.
