today in 1939 - The 11th Academy Awards were celebrated at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles (for the flicks of 1938). Oscars were doled out for You Can’t Take It with You for Best Picture and Best Director (Frank Capra). Capra, who took home his third Best-Director prize, had won for 1934’s It Happened One Night and 1936’s Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. The Best Actor award was claimed for the second year in a row (Captains Courageous) by Spencer Tracy for Boys Town. Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards were presented to Bette Davis and Fay Bainter, respectively, for their performances in Jezebel; while Walter Brennan took home the prized statuette for Best Supporting Actor in Kentucky. These were Davis’ and Brennan’s second Academy Awards; the first for Davis was awarded three years earlier for Dangerous, and Brennan received his first Oscar two years before for Come and Get It. Walt Disney won an honorary Oscar for the film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Mr. Disney actually received on ...
I just read that Meg Ryan will direct, and Tom Hanks will produce, a new version (ahem, didn't see the word "remake" often in the releases) of "The Human Comedy" entitled "Ithaca." Ryan will also star in it, as will her teenage son, presumably in the Rooney role. Many of the news releases avoided mentioning the 1943 film at all and were careful to stress "adapted from William Saroyan’s novel The Human Comedy..." There are plenty of charming scenes in the novel not used in the movie, most notably Homer delivering a telegram to the local brothel. Interesting to me that Ryan and Melanie Griffith will co-star. I can't figure that one out. They can't both play the Fay Bainter role of the mother, and yet both are older than Bainter in 1943. The only other larger female roles were played by Marsha Hunt and Donna Reed, and also that of the school teacher. Sam Shepherd will be in it as well: the deceased father? the Frank Morgan or James Craig roles? A 1984 off-Broadway musical version was well received, and ...

Another one of Mayer's family pictures. I shouldn't make fun because it took in $2,824,000.00 and made a profit of $1,531,000.00. Nice piece of change. The Human Comedy is a 1943 American drama film directed by Clarence Brown and adapted by Howard Estabrook. It is often thought to be based on the William Saroyan novel of the same name, but Saroyan actually wrote the screenplay first, was fired from the movie project, and quickly wrote the novel and published it just before the film was released. It starred Mickey Rooney, Frank Morgan, James Craig, Marsha Hunt, Fay Bainter, Ray Collins, Van Johnson, Donna Reed and Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins. Robert Mitchum and Don DeFore appear uncredited as buddies of a soldier Barry Nelson with a night off from training, trying to meet girls and take in a movie. The film is the story of a teenaged Homer Macauley (Rooney) in high school, working part-time as a telegram delivery boy, in the fictional town of Ithaca, California, during World War II. The effects of the war on t ...
