  • The Man Who Came To Dinner

    • Kathy Robinson
    • 2010-12-11

    Starring: Monty Woolley, Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan, Jimmy Durante and Billie Burke (1942) Comedy, Black & White. An hilarious holiday farce. In particular Monty Wooolley is supurb as an aserbic, autocratic, nationally known radio talk show host who, after attending a dinner engagement falls, breaking a hip. He stays to recover and starts to run the lives of all the houshold's inhabitants. Jimmy Durante is his wonderful, loud, irreverant self. The occasional busrsts into song are largely unfortunate, however the comedic acting is good enough to make it worth bearing with it. I am thrilled to see Monty Woolley whenever I can catch his work. If not for that I could have turned it off during any of the scattered songs. (If you like Montey Woolley in this try out the older version af "Stairway To Heaven" with David Niven. Quite a dramatic WWII story but amusing and interesting. Classed as a Fantasy.)

    A favorite character actor of mine, he had a style of contradiction, crusty and grouchy but with a big heart. Behind that stuffiness was an almost boyishly impish streak.He was fabulous in The Man Who Came To Dinner and Since You Went Away but his most touching performance was in my favorite holiday movie The Bishops Wife.I doubt there will ever be another actor who portrays the same style since supporting actors seem to have gone the way of the dinosaur!

    I do not know if "Monty" was a leading actor on any movies,but, i most say that on any movie he participate, he was a natural, some actors are over acting there parts, not Monty Woolley. Let him rest in peace.I have not seen to many of is movies, i will checking "TCM" for upcoming movies, this is my first time on "TCM" web site. Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Walter S.

    Monty Woolley was without a doubt one of my favorite character actors. He was so distincquished yet funny. I particularly liked him in "The Man Who Came To Dinner." I'm so sorry to see these great actors pass.

    Monty Woolley's boyhood home is Saratoga, NY, and in the late 1950s we often saw him at Saratoga's former Colonial Restaurant bar, the haunt of another late local Spa luminary, writer-humorist, Frank Sullivan. Woolley's father operated Saratoga's legendary Grand Union Hotel - now gone. R. Austin Healy Author - Casino Saratoga
