(aka 'Kitty Foyle: The Natural History of a Woman')

Directed by Sam Wood
USA 1940

 

  Known for light comedies and her partnership with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers stepped off the dance floor and into 1940's Oscar spotlight with her Best Actress turn as Kitty, an indomitable working-class girl who endures the rejection of Philadelphia society, makes her own way as a single woman and ultimately chooses between an unmarried arrangement with Main Line scion Wynnewood Strafford VI (Dennis Morgan) or marriage to a struggling physician (James Craig). Rogers' deserved Academy Award confirmed she was more than a dance star - a fact humorously underscored when she returned to the studio and was greeted by staffers and actors in top hats and tails.

Comments:

Aside from some small speckles in the opening moments this is a near perfect DVD image considering the age of the film. Warner's patented restoration technique highlights strong contrast with deep blacks and brings up fine detail. the subtitles and mono audio are likewise competent. Its nice to see a Tex Avery cartoon get some air as an extra on this DVD although again the supplements are far from overly relevant to the film itself although the Lux broadcasts have part of the 46' Academy Award ceremony (about 30 minutes worth) including the adverts of the day.

Warner needs congratulations yet again - an important classic film treated with respect on the digital medium and at a very reasonable price. We strongly recommend!
