'Sweet Music'...a 'Singin' In The Rain' moment


VP19

Recommended Posts

There were technical difficulties at the start of the film, and as a result, the voice track was out of sync with the action on the screen, and the discrepancy expanded to close to a half-minute, making the film unintentionally hilarious. Too bad for Ann Dvorak fans on her day, though to be fair she didn't have much screen time in this programmer.

Update at 8:09 A.M. eastern - it's back in synch....for now anyway.

There was also some problem at the start of the movie and all of the opening titles & credits were not shown.

 

SO - please, TCM Programmers, try to get this movie re-scheduled again soon.

I woke up extremely early this morning and saw a bit of *Sweet Music*. It wasn't "out of sync" while I was watching - but the "bug"/logo never went away for the five minutes or so that I watched. It was present during all of Vallee's song and all of Dvorak's dance routine.

 

Never noticed the "bug" being continuously up that long before. Weird.

VP19- A 30 second sync problem??? On my screen it was that way about 30 minutes in, and STAYED that way for at least another 10 minutes. I finally abandoned it altogether in a fit of frustration. Where are the friggin' quality control employees that are supposed to watch for this kind of thing? It was ruined from the beginning anyway w/ the opening credits, setting omitted. TCM doesnt give a rat's a$$ as long as we play our cable bill. Inother classic RUINED. Thanks TCM!!!

I probably shouldnt have gotten so hot under the collar, but SWEET MUSIC is a big fave of mine, and it bugs me that they couldnt just take care of business. Im a big Rudy Vallee fan. We have his coffee table from his Hollywood Hills home. We purchased it from his widow after he died.

I DVR's SWEET MUSIC and on my recording there's a a card that comes up saying they're having technical dificulties. After which the screen went complete black and mute for what must be at least 5 minutes. The film comes back in mid stream with the trick trombone player doing an impression of an airplane. The film is in perfect sync once it comes on.
