I Dream Too Much

I Dream Too Much

If Columbia could make an acceptable movie star out of opera-diva Grace Moore, then RKO Radio could do the same with Lily Pons. At least that was producer Pandro S. Berman’s reasoning when he cast Pons in the 1935 musical romance I Dream too Much. The actress plays Annette, a rural French musical student who marries struggling American composer Jonathan (Henry Fonda). Possessed of a splendid singing voice, our heroine rises to fame on the opera stage, while poor Jonathan continues struggling, supporting himself as a tour guide. Annette eventually saves her marriage by transforming her husband’s “masterpiece,” a rather turgid modernistic opera, into a light-hearted musical comedy. Lucille Ball, who’d later co-star with Henry Fonda in The Big Street and Yours, Mine and Ours, has a funny minor role as a gum-snapping tourist. Though Lily Pons was at least 10 years older than Fonda, they make an attractive and believable screen couple, adding credibility to this somewhat contrived yarn

A collection of Warner Brothers short cartoon features, “starring” the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote.

This 1979 feature-length compilation includes several of his best cartoons. Among the 11 shorts shown in their entirety are the classics “Robin Hood Daffy,” “What’s Opera, Doc?,” “Bully for Bugs,” and “Duck Amuck”. The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Movie provides a showcase not only for Jones’s razor-sharp timing, but for the work of his exceptional crew, which included designer Maurice Noble, writer Mike Maltese, composers Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn, and voice actor Mel Blanc.
