Ugh.
30 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The one weak part of the lovely "Myrna Loy and William Powell Collection" (Manhattan Melodrama / Evelyn Prentice / Double Wedding / I Love You Again / Love Crazy) is the special features of each disc. Most feature a bad cartoon and a Pete Smith short (I can't stand Pete Smith's voice or sense of "humor"). Double Wedding has this short instead. I watched hoping for something akin to Astaire in Royal Wedding, but this was done long before the technique was developed and just flips the film upside down. The plot is basically a whorehouse of dentistry, and done badly at that. Pete Smith would have been preferable!
