The Opposite Sex has a great cast and offers a pleasing production even with its lackluster songs. The Women, of course, is a stronger film, but this one is certainly watchable and doesn't suffer with its addition of the principal male characters who are only talked about in the original movie.

Two more WA titles coming in September are "Flying Leathernecks" and "Bad Education". I highly recommend "Flying Leathernecks" for those of us that love John Wayne movies.:)
Not bothered at all about the other two, but I'll have Flying Leathernecks. It ticks a few boxes: The Duke, WW2 movie, the war in the Pacific.

Our resident June Allyson fan will be delighted by this announcement. I'm also delighted but not for the same reason! I'm particularly pleased by the declaration that it's from a brand new restoration. Combine that with Warner Archive and we have a winner!

This news is better than a morning cup of coffee to start out my day! Call me a heretic but I infinitely prefer it to the 1939 film. We won't mention the 2008 Meg Ryan remake. Thank you WA, we need more Junebug on blu. How about Good News and Little Women next? :)

The 2008 remake is worth sitting through if only for the wonderful cameo appearance by the one and only Divine Miss M.

As for Bad Education -- is it the Pedro Almodovar film starring the very yummy Gael Garcia Bernal?

Good news! Oh, this isn't a great film---can't compare to the original---but I do enjoy it for the cast alone. (Plus I always get a kick out of seeing June Allyson walloping Joan Collins.) And with this release, we will have all four of Dolores Gray's major films out on blu-ray---woohoo!

No, this "Bad Education" is a 2019 movie that HBO acquired starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney based on an actual criminal case in which some public school officials embezzled millions of dollars.

Joan Collins on that "wallop": "Although the part was not large, it was flashy and juicy, and I had some good scenes. June Allyson confronts me in my dressing room and accuses me of the affair. I nonchalantly continue with removing my brief stage costume while she addresses me and progressively becomes more angry. June was a tiny lady, about 5' 2" in heels. She was petite, delicate and ladylike, so I was not concerned about the fact that she had to slap my face after the following line, "When Steven doesn't like what I wear, I take it off." And June hauled off and belt me. This little lady with her tiny hands had a punch like Muhammad Ali! I felt as if a steamroller had hit me. Something fell from my face and hit the floor with a loud clatter ... my teeth? Oh, God, no! Please don't let her have knocked out my teeth! My head was ringing and I couldn't hear a thing. Stars danced before my eyes and I staggered to a chair and collapsed."

That "thing" that fell from her face wasn't Collins' teeth but her earring and if I remember correctly, when Allyson slaps her, you can see the earring fly off Collins' ear in the movie.

Well, that sounds interesting -- and Hugh Jackman is mighty yummy too!

Yup, that's June Allyson. All sweetness and light and kind regard.
