Enjoyable and informative intro to "Dodge City" and the '39 publicity junket...
26 July 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I've really enjoyed these DVD introductions, especially the wise comments by Bob Thomas, Robert Osborne, Rudy Behlmer and historian Lincoln D. Hurst which really give credit where it's due and make the viewer understand the reputation of films like DODGE CITY in the context of when it was made,in 1939.

At the time, there was no television and studios sent their biggest stars out on publicity junkets. For DODGE CITY, the whole town turned out to welcome the Warner stock company celebrities that included Flynn, Bruce Cabot, John Garfield, Humphrey Bogart, Priscilla Lane, Rosemary Lane, Frank McHugh, Ann Sheridan and many others.

But the commentary by Thomas, Osborne and Hurst is what comprises most of this special nine minute feature. They talk about Flynn's acceptance as a western star and his reluctance at first to attempt the role; about the contribution made by Technicolor and Olivia de Havilland as Flynn's popular leading lady; about Ann Sheridan's small but colorful role as a saloon singer; and discuss "heavies" Bruce Cabot and Victor Jory who were the hissable villains of the piece.

It serves as an enjoyable intro to the film, which turned out to be a huge success for Warner Bros. at a time when very few major films were photographed in three-strip Technicolor.
