It's sweet, all right, not to mention sentimental and corny -- As Adeline Schmidt, Irene Dunne leaves her father's beer garden to sing in New York, where she falls prey to a predatory playboy. Set in nostalgic 1898, this Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein II musical features several unfamiliar but marvelous songs. Dunne shows the film world the voice that brought her fame on Broadway -- "Why Was I Born?", "Lonely Feet" -- supported by Donald Woods, Louis Calhern and Dorothy Dare. Warners' new restoration makes this a must see for Irene Dunne fans. Sweet Adeline DVD-r The Warner Archive Collection 1934 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 87 min. / Street Date October 20, 2015 / available through the WBshop / 18.95 Starring Irene Dunne, Donald Woods, Louis Calhern, Hugh Herbert, Ned Sparks, Wini Shaw, Joseph Cawthorn, Dorothy Dare, Noah Beery, William V.

Running through mid-December, the French Institute Alliance Francaise and Anthology Film Archives have launched a retrospective of Mathieu Amalric‘s work, which they’ve appropriately titled “Renaissance Man.” The retrospective will feature Amalric’s work as a director, screenwriter and actor; and in the selections that range from the Oscar-nominated Julian Schnabel’s The Diving Bell and the Butterfly to the Larrieu Brothers’ A Man, A Real One, audience members can trace Amalric’s evolution into one of the most eclectic artists of his generation.

He uses his whole body to speak, often widening his eyes, hunching his shoulders, and using his hands to make specific points. He’s unafraid to speak his mind, is generous with his words, and instantly makes »

Over at my other haunt, Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, there is currently posted, in honor of Halloween week, what I think are two very special treats (and possibly tricks). The first is a very challenging frame grab quiz in which readers are asked to guess the titles of 31 movies based on eerie images that may or may not be so easy to identify. The other is a special edition of the traditional interview-type quiz I occasionally come up devoted entirely to the harrowing world of horror. It features the usual batch of questions for which there are no wrong answers, only your answers, which makes it much more fun to fill out and especially to read. As usual, it’s taking me a while to get around to submitting my own answers to the quiz, but in the creeping shadow of the approaching holiday I thought I »
