John Ford shows his flawless instincts as he drops the reins and lets Will Rogers "have his head". There is a delightful partnering of these two mega-talents in three films in which Rogers plays a Steamboat Captain, a Judge and a Doctor. Treats and treasures are waiting here for those who can see beyond the black & white to a time when the qualities of respect and reverence, fidelity and friendship were well known. The comedy is genuine and the laughter is generous.
Dan Dailey plays the part of a patriot who can't seem to get to the war. The story is of a real life irony taken from a war hero's memoirs. Dailey plays the part well and spontaneously.
"Up The River" looks like it was saved just in time and thank goodness for that! In this we see very early performances by Bogey and Spencer Tracy. There are places where the odd small segment is missing but John Fords genius still shines through. It certainly deserves a place in the collection.

I'm late to the party on Will Rogers and no authority on his importance to American culture, though with even slight understanding it's evident how unbelievably popular he was in his time. Aside from the giant shadow he must have cast, 2 of these films, Judge Priest and Dr. Bull are as pure a confluence of John Ford strengths and an actor's gifts (and screenwriter's wit) as there are in the John Ford canon. Both are fantastic ruminations on times past, even as they were being produced, both romantic and harsh and world weary (The best Ford's are all these). Will Rogers might be the original method actor. Though surely he is working from brilliant scripts, his delivery has all the earmarks of being spoken for the first time without self-consciousness, improv must have been a huge component of it, and Ford lets him go. He is charming, even while trying to be, and that's difficult to pull off. It just comes to him.
It would be difficult also, not to mention Stepin Fetchit... Read more
'John Ford's American Comedies' is made up primarily of artifacts from Fox's early golden era ('Steamboat 'Round the Bend,' 'Dr. Bull,' 'Judge Priest' and 'Up the River') with a couple mildly entertaining wartime musical-dramedies from the '50s ('What Price Glory?' and 'When Willie Comes Marching Home') thrown in for the price. The artifacts are the more interesting from an academic perspective, allowing those who aren't familiar with Will Rogers' film resume to get a feel for his homespun charm and (in the case of UTR) affording a unique chance to see Humphrey Bogart and Spencer Tracy sharing the screen. But while the nostalgia factor is high, the humor in these four titles is pretty tepid and Ford wasn't utilizing much of the cinematic style that he had developed throughout his silent epics and which grew to legendary proportion in his later, better works (WPG? and WWCMH not being among them). Four-disc set (two flippers, two single-sided picture discs) offers a few nice extras,... Read more
