For me The Petrified Forest - was the biggest surprise of the year 1936. In the United Kingdom, The Petrified Forest became one of the highest-grossed Drama movies. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. The Petrified Forest filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. Easily the movie with the best dialogues ever. It's a movie for everyone, I'm sure you'll like it after watching.... Show more
