The Ex-Mrs Bradford on DVD


The Warner Brothers Archive has come through once again, as on August 10th, they released a DVD on demand of Columbia Pictures' 1936 mystery-comedy, The Ex-Mrs. Bradford. The film, a Thin Man take off starring William Powell and Jean Arthur, was reviewed here in these very pages last August. I didn't exactly love the movie but most any film in what I call the Husband and Wife Detective genre is well worth seeing.

  1. C.K., I want to let you know that because of technical problems, I've had to relaunch my site THE MOVIE PROJECTOR with a new URL:

    I would appreciate it if you would change the link to my site to the new URL so that your readers will have access to my new posts.

    In the meantime visitors to the original site will automatically be redirected to the new one. I'm in the process of importing my old posts to the archive at the new site. Thanks, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

  2. What a surprise!

    As Jean Arthur later studied biology - and Jean loved bugs very much - she might have something to object herself. Are the spiders in this film really Black Widows? Besides these spiders aren't as dangerous as the film tells us - it just hurts very much after being bitten and you might have a few circulation problems.

    But I don't consider this too essential, the whole film is parody anyway. I like "The Ex-Mrs. Bradford" very much and I had an issue on that myself:

    In our discussion we came to the conclusion, this was an extraordinarily sassy Jean.

    Thanks for the release tip, Dexter!
