“Cafe Hostess” on DVD
On August 5th,Â Cafe Hostess, the 1939 Columbia featureÂ starring Preston Foster, Wynn Gibson, and our darling Ann Dvorak is going to be availableÂ as part of the Sony Pictures Choice Collection series (meaning burn on demand).
I am actually really excited for this one. It’s one of Ann’s few starring roles and my copy ofÂ Cafe Hostess is so poor that I am sure my previous viewing experiences were greatly diminished because of that. Yes, it’s definitely a B-picture and not as good as Ann’s other two Columbia titles (Blind AlleyÂ andÂ Girls of the Road), but it’s enjoyable enough and as I recall, Ann’s scenes with Wynn Gibson are especially good.
