STARRING HELEN HAYES

 

 

 

Good. It's definitely time for Helen Hayes to get her due. I read once that Robert Montgomery was asked who his favorite leading lady was, and he answered quickly 'Helen Hayes.' 

 

Hayes reprised her role in VANESSA for a special radio broadcast of the Campbell Playhouse (a.k.a. Mercury Theatre) with Orson Welles.

Do you know if TCM has shown Public Hero #1?    It was released by MGM so I assume TCM can lease it.

Yes, they have aired it several times-- for a Jean Arthur tribute and a Lionel Barrymore tribute.

 

MGM remade this 1935 hit a short time later in 1941 (it is a shot by shot remake with nothing changed except the cast)...as THE GETAWAY. And TCM also shows the remake quite often.

Overblown, rather tedious...polished MGM production values and talented musicians...but not as great as it should be. Most home video consumers may want to skip buying this one and wait for it to air again on TCM.

Not one of Stanley Donen's best.  BUT there are individual numbers I like such as "IT" performed by Ann Miller and "One Alone" performed by Cyd Charisse and James Mitchell. Disappointing film, but quite entertaining. Helen Traubel comes off well in her film debut.  I am wondering why WB has not yet released a Blu Ray of SHOW BOAT, one of the top MGM musicals of the 50s.

Yeah, it's hard to believe Donen directed it. I have a feeling the studio tinkered with it in the editing process. 

 

No idea why the '51 version of SHOW BOAT has not yet received a Blu Ray. Maybe for Christmas?

I'm actually seeking a review. Has anybody received their Forbidden Hollywood Volume 9 yet from the Warner Archive, and is it pressed?

It looks like it is burned not pressed. Here is some information I found on Amazon:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Forbidden-Hollywood-Artist-Not-Provided/dp/B015XC8GLO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1446318316&sr=8-1&keywords=Forbidden+Hollywood+Volume+9

Amazon will always burn Warner Archive DVDs because they are set up to do so. I was wondering if anybody got theirs straight from the Warner Archive, where Forbidden Hollywood has had initial limited pressed runs before. Thanks for speaking up anyways, TB.

Sure, no problem. Maybe someone else will come along and provide the answer you are seeking. :)
