Kino asked me to do an audio commentary for Deanna Durbin’s first starring vehicle, “One Hundred Men and a Girl” which was tremendous fun to do – and also fascinating to research.
It received this following nice review.
“The Kino Blu-ray offers a new commentary by Stephen Vagg (author of Rod Taylor: An Aussie in Hollywood) on One Hundred Men and a Girl. He’s excellent and digs pretty deep in exploring information on Producer Joe Pasternak’s fascinating start to his long career and Durbin plus much more.“
Thanks, DVD Beaver!
“Stephen Vagg offers a fairly comprehensive audio commentary on the making of the movie as well as anecdotal tales from behind the camera. Good stuff here and well worth a listen”
“film historian Stephen Vagg offers a very informative if somewhat crowded commentary track offering many facts about quite a few of the behind-the-scenes artists as well as the actors on-screen. He also has enough time to sketch in Durbin’s entire film career while he’s at it.”
(I plead guilty to “crowded” – I had a lot to pack in!)
Thanks to these writers for their nice words – these commentaries are a labour of love and it’s great to get some positive feedback.
