2 Weeks In Another Town DVD Review

Available for the first time on DVD, starting Tuesday, January 18, only at the

Synopsis: In 1952, star Kirk Douglas, director Vincente Minnelli, producer John Houseman and screenwriter Charles Schnee teamed for what many consider the greatest drama ever made about Hollywood: The Bad and the Beautiful. Ten years later, they took another powerful insider’s look at the movie business, this time adapting a book by Irwin Shaw. Douglasportrays has-been screen idol Jack Andrus. Just out of a sanitarium, Jack grabs at a small role in a movie shot in Romeby a director (Edward G. Robinson) whose career is also on the skids. When the director falls ill, Jack takes over, realizing this is his last shot at personal and professional redemption. Trenchant, confrontational, intensified by Minnelli’s genius for color, Two Weeks in Another Town captures the passion of creative people facing the abyss.

Review: 2 Weeks in another town is a film that was directed by Vincente Minelli as a type of follow-up to the great classic The Bad and the Beautiful.  This classic Kirk Douglas feature teams him with Lana Turner and its a match made in heaven.  This vintage film is about a washed-up actor searching for redemption at any cost.  Its a theme that nowadays is a bit cliche, but when it was made it was very original.  This film is an absolute gem and I couldn't be happier that the Warner Archive has risen it from the ashes for us all to enjoy.
