This Day in Ann Dvorak History: Finishes “I Sell Anything”

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 206

On July 25, 1934, Ann Dvorak finished her scenes on I Sell Anything, one of the most inconsequential films of her career. Her part in the movie serves very little purpose, other than to give Pat O’Brien someone to end up with by the closing credits. It feels like most of her lines had originally belonged to some of the male characters and that her part was added as an afterthought. Ann worked on I Sell Anything for less than two weeks, though it’s impressive her services were needed for more than a couple of days.

    I’ve been wanting to get this film on DVD, but it doesn’t appear to be available. I hope at some point this will be available through the Warner Archive or another seller.

    I don’t even think this has aired on TCM in recent years, if ever. My copy is on VHS and was taped off of TNT! I think it’s a pretty weak film, though I could be biased because Ann’s role is such a throw away. There are still a handful of Ann’s Warner films that the WAC has not released, so hopefully we’ll be seeing them in the near future.
