directed by Henry King
USA 1937

 

  A lavish period piece set around the Chicago fire of 1871. Brady is Mrs O'Leary, mother of two rival brothers, the good-hearted rogue Dion (Power), and the good-hearted lawyer Jack (Ameche), who are off having romantic adventures in the Windy City while a cow owned by their mother starts the fire. Recreation of the event caused the film to be one of the most expensive of its time, and the film won an Oscar for its effects (Brady bagged a Best Supporting Actress one, too). Nothing extraordinary in retrospect, but it is genial enough.

Comments:

We are given both the theatrical and extended "Road Show" versions of this film on opposite sides of a dual layered DVD. Both sides appear to have similar image qualities - a bit worn and hazy with lots of film grain showing through. Overall the image looks quite good with usual expectations in consideration of the age of the film. Black levels are very good and gray scales aren't far behind. The extras include an A+E Ameche bio and another MovieTone news reel. It's nice to see Fox make the effort with this probable poor seller and supply both editions. out of
