Those of us who listen to Dennis Miller’s radio show every day have been looking forward to this big event.
Miller joins Robert Osborne tonight to present a bunch of his favorite movies, among them, the underrated, understated Dodsworth (1936), a movie I’ve written about here before.
I’m glad I didn’t watch Dodsworth until I was middle aged myself, because had I tried to watch it as a teen or young adult I would’ve grown bored pretty fast with this story of “stupid old people.” Like … Colonel Blimp, this is a film for grownups. Some of it made me cringe, it was so “close to home.”
I wouldn’t have picked Suspicion, and Miller admits it isn’t one of Hitchcock’s best. My Hitchock favorites aren’t generally considered his “best,” either, though; I’d rather watch Rope or Shadow of a Doubt.
