  1. Unexpected Stars Shine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 28th 2015

    The beauty of watching Republic Pictures "Tell It to a Star" (1945) comes in the form of what's unexpected. This film may be classed as a B picture; it's leads, Ruth Terry and Robert Livingston, are best known for starring roles in lots of B westerns and other such fare throughout their movie careers, and Republic Pictures was best know in 1945 as a B-picture mill. But in this film Mr. Livingston and Ms. Terry step away from their expected roles in action-packed oaters of the old west and render measured and believable performances as bandleader and singer, respectfully, in a 40s nightclub. Adding to the treat of seeing these two mix it up on the bandstand and fall in love on the dance floor (and elsewhere), "Tell It to a Star" also showcases the talents of Aurora Miranda, who, for those only familiar with her sister Carmen, is a delightful surprise as she sings and dances and otherwise struts her stuff through the Brazilian number "A Batucada Comecou." Rounding out the cast is a panoply of character actors doing their usually wonderful best, most notably Alan Mowbray and Franklin Pangborn. Unexpectedly, there is little that is B grade in this picture. It is a great little film and truly a pleasant surprise.

    The standard brought to the making of the DVD is also unexpected for a movie that comes without the usual high profile of better known films. The sound and video quality is excellent. My hat's off to Zeus for offering this film for public consumption and for ensuring a good presentation.
