there is something too pat and too packed about the pile-up of themes and subplots. There is a subplot tackling prejudice against Mexican-Americans. Leslie is against it, which is nice. It is odd, though, that in Texas from 1925 to 1952, there is not a single black person, which is remarkably convenient. What’s strongest about “Giant” the musical is not its sweep, not its stars, but its sidelights. There are small scenes that are breathtaking; minor characters who are inspiring.Giant Review; The Eyes of Texas This Time Are Not on Elizabeth Taylor or James Dean
