A Woman's Vengeance on DVD - UK Release

A Woman's Vengeance (1948), starring Ann Blyth, Charles Boyer, and Jessica Tandy will be released on DVD in the United Kingdom this coming April 25th.  



As far as I can tell, this is the first release of this movie on DVD (apart from what are commonly called black market versions), and it is an exciting prospect to have more of Ann Blyth's earlier work available to the public.  It can be purchased through Amazon-UK, and be advised you will need a DVD player, or computer, that can play Region 2 DVDs. Here's hoping it will also be released in the U.S. in the future.

We discussed the movie here at my Another Old Movie Blog, and, of course, it's covered in my book on Ann Blyth's career -- Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star.

An Easter Radio Episode from 1950


For those who celebrate Easter, try a little OTR (Old Time Radio) and have a listen to Ann Blyth in "The Arbutus Bonnet," a dramatic episode of Hallmark Playhouse, hosted by author James Hilton, in a script adapted by Jean Holloway.  A nostalgic love story, a separation of lovers, a crisis of faith that comes to a climax one Easter Sunday.

It was broadcast April 6, 1950.  Scroll down to episode #62 - "50-04-06" and download or listen.

Top o' the Morning - St. Patrick's Day


This poster is, of course, from Top O' The Morning (1949), which we covered here on my Another Old Movie Blog.

Set in Ireland, Ann plays the daughter of Barry Fitzgerald, and Bing Crosby is an American insurance investigator looking into the theft of the famous Blarney Stone.

Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Mildred Pierce - Watch on TCM

 
This striking poster in French and German is one of my favorites of Mildred Pierce (1945), which we covered on my Another Old Movie Blog here, and more extensively in my book, Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star.
 
It serves as our reminder that TCM is broadcasting Mildred Pierce tomorrow, March 9th, at noontime, as part of an afternoon of Joan Crawford films.
