TCM On Air Promo for “Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel”

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 310

First off, I apologize for the quality of this video which a friend recorded by pointing his phone at the television. Despite this, isn’t it fantastic?? I imagine this is the first time so many Ann Dvorak clips have been edited together to promote her and the result is simply wonderful. I confess that I started crying the first time I watched it. After spending so many years with this project, it’s overwhelming to know that other people care about Ann enough to deem this book worthwhile.

I haven’t been able to locate a copy of this video on the TCM website, so if you uncover a better copy please let me know!

On a book ordering side note, it looks like Amazon is temporarily out of stock, but the University Press of Kentucky has copies at a 20% discount!


UPDATE 12/1: Special thanks to frequent commenter Dick who provided me with a perfect copy of the promo which is now posted above.

    Can you give us the sequential rundown of the films shown in the clips?

    I think all the clips where she is wearing a hat are from COLLEGE COACH, the ones where her hair is parted down the middle is BRIGHT LIGHTS, and curly hair is THE LONG NIGHT which includes both speaking clips.

    Wow! Is this a great way to spend a minute or what?

    I see that “College Coach” is on TCM’s schedule for December.

    Outstanding review of the book from a few days back; hope they keep pouring in.

    Good news from Amazon; I received a message that the target shipping date has been pushed up a month, to November 19. I anxioulsy await.
