Released just three weeks before the beginning of World War II, it provides a snapshot of how the Depression and the era of the gangster were receding into memory just as an age of optimism was beginning that would go on hiatus during the war effort, and restart and peak after the war was over. Great atmosphere and great acting - highly recommended.
The dvd is packed with great extra features. Two amazing musical shorts: The classic "Jammin' The Blues" (with Lester Young, Joe Jones, Sweets Edison, etc) and "Melody Maker:Jimmy Lunceford (whose orchestra features in the main movie). Also THREE hilarious Warmer Brothers cartoons: "Kitty Kornered" (Porky Pig vs. four ornery cats who wont be kicked out into the snow), "Crooner Swooner" (production at Porky's war-time chicken ranch is disrupted by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby crooning roosters) and "My Favourite Duck" (Daffy Duck turns Porky's fishing holiday into a nightmare) plus a big-band audio outtake of "Blues In The Night" that runs just under 2 minutes. Last but not least, you get the original movie trailer.
Print quality is typical WB excellence. Grab it before it's gone... or becomes over-priced.
Yesterday I watched the picture again (I bought a copy) with my parents who were 10 (dad) and 13 (mom) when this picture sprang to life theatrically in 1941 . I was thrilled and excited all over again and my folks loved it .
You'll find Howard Da Silva here . Jack Carson and Lloyd Nolan as well (in the role of a lifetime) The whole cast is fantastic in service of a super-duper-hyper-rat-a-tat script loaded with great enthusiasm and encouragement and hard truths and harsher actions . This picture screams life with spectacular montages and sweet and lovely playing and singing . The acting's uniformly superb and dynamic . See it if you can friends . See it if you can .

It was a pretty good movie, but not familiar with most of the players. Better than most of the TV shows available.Published on December 9, 2012 by JES
