Boy Did I Get A Wrong Number

Some suggestions make very little sense. Take these Netflix suggestions. If you like Desire Under The Elm (Sophia Loren marries Anthony Perkins father but sleeps with and gets pregnant by Perkins) and Anastasia (Ingrid Bergman may or may not be a missing Romanov and Yul Brynner may or may not be able to conceal his attraction), then Netflix has some recommendations for other "Romantic Movies from the 1950s."


Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson in All That Heaven Allows, we can see it. James Stewart and Jeff Chandler in Broken Arrow, John Payne and Maureen O'Hara in Tripoli, and Michael Redgrave with Joan Greenwood and Michael Denison with Dorothy Tutin in The Importance of Being Earnest? Yeah, we can see it -- Wait though.

What's that one after Wyman and Hudson again?

Broken Arrow? Netflix describes the 1950 film:

By the 1870s, the battle between settlers and the Apaches had raged for 10 years. When a chance encounter brings Army scout Tom Jeffords (James Stewart) into Apache territory, he comes to believe in the possibility of peace. Ultimately developing a friendship with Apache leader Cochise (Jeff Chandler), Jeffords works to negotiate a truce. Debra Paget co-stars in this Western that helped change the depiction of Native Americans on the big screen.

Unless Cochise and Tom have some Brokeback action, we think Netflix needs to work on their suggestions and classifications.
