CRITERION RELEASES FOR JANUARY

 

 

BITTER RICE, Sylvana Mangano

GILDA, Rita Hayworth

Interesting to see Criterion take on GILDA. The Columbia Classics division of Sony released a restored version of the film a few years ago. Not sure how Criterion can improve upon that.

Thanks. I am glad people love Rita and love the movie (because I do as well), but I don't agree with some of the over-inflated praise. For one thing, I do not consider Rita Hayworth the Columbia lady. I reserve that title for Jean Arthur.

 

And actually, none of these actresses spent their entire careers at Columbia. Rita was loaned out several times while under contract to Cohn, and after she left the studio she freelanced all over town and in Europe.

 

The only Hollywood leading lady that spent her entire career at one studio was Vera Ralston. It is accurate to call her The Republic Lady. Because she was!

Yes,  Jean Arthur is THE Columbia lady and the favorite actress of Capra.

It looks like TCM is releasing two new TCM Greatest Classics collections on December 1.  One is going to feature Eleanor Powell (great choice, imo) and the other is featuring the four "That's Entertainment" films. 

The 'Entertainment' films were all screened in succession on New Year's Eve a few years ago on TCM.

While I love Jean Arthur, I feel Rita Hayworth has a.much better claim to."Columbia Lady". Jean starred there for approximately a decade, and she didn't film there exclusively, going on loan to the likes of Paramount and RKO. Rita was at Columbia for over 20 years, and was the studio's biggest star for most of the 40s and 50s. Harry Cohn also felt she was his prize star for most of this tenure.

As Frank Sinatra had said "Rita Hayworth is Columbia" and that is why he took second billing to her in PAL JOEY.  I too love Jean Arthur but she  mostly worked with Capra during the 30s at Columbia. I do not think she was ever the reining queen at Columbia although she was one of their biggest stars in the 1930s.

After a long absence TCM/Vault collection has a new release:

 

 

Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor in THE NIGHT WALKER (1964) and Leslie Nielsen in DARK INTRUDER 

THE NIGHT WALKER aired not long ago on Svengoolie's program. So there should be a fair amount of renewed interest in it.

TWILIGHT TIME...DECEMBER BLU RAY RELEASES

KINGS GO FORTH (1958)

THE DETECTIVE (1968)

MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (1961)

 

EdgeCliffe, 

 

Have you ever purchased any of the Twilight Time releases? I see that they've released many of my favorite films, but I am reluctant to spend the money on them.  Are their releases worth the high price tag?
