Back Street (1961) DVD

SKU ID #639707
$19.98
Back Street, one of the most popular and endearing love stories of all-time, has been brought to the silver screen several times over the years. Based on the bestselling novel by Fannie Hurst (Imitation of Life), Back Street is a quintessential tearjerker in which a couple meets and falls in love but is unable to marry due to impossible circumstances. However, despite their situation, they carry on a lifelong illicit affair until tragedy strikes. For the lush 1961 color version, producer Ross Hunter (All That Heaven Allows) teamed Susan Hayward and John Gavin as the star-crossed lovers with Vera Miles, Charles Drake and Virginia Grey cast in prominent supporting roles. Directed by David Miller (Midnight Lace), this emotional remake garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Costume Design.

    Comments about this product:

    A wonderful old fashioned love story! Hollywood made movies that a family could watch together and most important, no vulgar language. When will movie makers outgrow being so vulgar. John Gavin, before he went to Hollywood, was an officer in the Navy stationed for a while in Washington DC at the Navy Annex where my sister also worked. They met through friends and went out a few times, she said he was such a gentleman with class and lots of thoughtfulness. He did not make many pictures as Alfred Hitchcock said he was just to stiff to make it as a leading, he eventually became the American Ambassador to Mexico while Reagan was President. He was probably better off getting away from stardom since Hollywood began it's decent into lewdness in the late '60's.

    I like to curl up on the couch with my popcorn and diet soda and totally become immersed in movies. One of my favorite things to do. My. Mom passed down her love of movies to me. Nothing better!

            Whenever I need a good cry, I'll watch this movie. It is so good and you keep hoping they will get together but the other woman gets all that matters in the end.

                    I had this movie on VHS for years. I am in my seventies and I saw it on screen when I was in my twenties. Love it. Great story and great stars.

                    I can play it over and over and never get tired of it.

                    Glad to find it on your site on DVD.
