Three Ann Dvorak M-G-M Flicks Released on DVD by Warner Archive

This week, the Warner Archive releases two more films from Ann Dvorak’s chorus days at M-G-M: So This is College and Love in the Rough, both starring Robert Montgomery, a personal favorite of mine. I have not seen either one of these, so I cannot really comment on them, but judging from still photos, Ann is fairly prominent in the scenes she appears in.

A couple of months back, the Warner Archive released Politics, co-starring Marie Dressler and Polly Moran. I wanted to confirm that Ann was actually in the film before including it here, and even though it’s not a musical, the Divine Ms. D does appear in the crowd of a political rally and is easy to pick out. Politics is actually an early pro-feminist feature and was much more enjoyable than I expected. Marie Dressler is fabulous, as always.

Just a reminder that There’s a Future in It, was released last week through Amazon UK on the Home Front Britain set. My copy should be arriving any day now, and I’ll have a full report after the grand premiere at my place.

That’s all the Ann-D news for now.

    i saw those releases in an e-mail from Classicflix but i didnt even know Ann was in them! Those Dressler-Moran films are a bit much, kinda give me a headache but i’d watch one to see Ann, that’s for sure!

    Politics was much, much better than I thought it would be. I was kind of dreading it, but their shtick was not too obnoxious and the story had a more serious tone than I expected, while still being a comedy. Ann has maybe 5 seconds of screen time. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss her!
