4.0 out of 5 stars high energy comedy with strong social edge, 14 Oct. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Man Godfrey [DVD] [1936] (DVD)
a very entertaining 30's screwball comedy, with the great carole lombard partnered by ex-husband william powell (who made her appearance a condition of his own involvement). an arresting opening on NYC dump leads into a dissection of the lives of the idle rich, with interesting twists & turns of the plot. both leads turn in very strong performances. finally the film does not manage to weave the comedy together with the social comment as seamlessly as some might like, but it is a film which will stay in the memory for a considerable time.

4.0 out of 5 stars a classy album for those not used to sun ra, 14 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Jazz in Silhouette (Audio CD)
a surprisingly accessible & well-produced set, from a disciplined & swinging outfit. very effective deployment of baritone sax, thoughtful & enjoyable arrangements & good melodies should appeal to listeners well outside the reach of sun ra's usual "far out" reputation.
a richly textured and rewarding treat. try it!
