DVD Playhouse—April 2010

By

Allen Gardner

Ride With The Devil (Criterion) Ang Lee’s revisionist take on the Civil War is awash in moral ambiguity, along with some stunning cinematography, production design, and fine performances. Set during the Kansas-Missouri border war, Tobey Maguire and Skeet Ulrich star as two friends who join up with the Confederate-sympathizing Bushwhackers, finding an odd ally in a former slave (Jeffrey Wright). While it’s fascinating to see America’s bloodiest conflict through the eyes of a foreigner, thereby allowing much of the previously mentioned ambiguity a certain latitude, the film never loses the bad taste it leaves for one simple reason: it asks us, the audience, to side with not just the Confederates, but some of the lowest trash that made up the dregs, and the fringes, of the movement. Big points for audacity, but snake eyes on the story itself. Singer Jewel is impressive in her film debut. »

DVD: Review:The Abbott And Costello Show

6 April 2010 10:01 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

By the time The Abbott And Costello Show debuted in 1952, the team had been a top draw in motion pictures for more than a decade, but were just about out of gas, as partners and as celebrities. They broke up in 1957 after »

[TV] The Abbott and Costello Show: The Complete Series

3 April 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

In the golden age of classic film and television, few comedians could match the success and popularity of legendary comic duo Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The pair was successful in almost every medium, including stage, radio, film, cartoon, and television. Toward the end of their career, the duo had already hosted the Colgate Comedy Hour and decided to do a TV series that would utilize their classic gags while still reaching a newer, younger audience. The result was The Abbott and Costello Show.

Premiering in 1951, The Abbott and Costello Show was a short-lived success. Although it ran only two seasons, it showcased the pair’s reliable repertoire of routines which they had originally done in vaudeville and reintroduced to new generations of film and TV fans. You don’t have to be an Abbott and Costello fan to have heard of their routines, which were usually based on Costello »
