New on Disc: 'Making Mr. Right' and more …

7 Dec, 2015 By: Mike Clark

Making Mr. Right

Olive, Comedy, $19.95 DVD, $29.95 Blu-ray, ‘PG-13.’
Stars Ann Magnuson, John Malkovich, Glenne Headly.
This is one of those pictures that gets out of the gate so fast that it seems to stumble (though only occasionally) when the pacing slows down just a wee bit. For John Malkovich fans, it’s pretty essential, with an actor playing dual roles as a scientist and a space-bound android who looks like him. Ann Magnuson as a woman who falls for the robot is smooth as well at going with the flow.

Death on the Diamond

Available via Warner Archive       
Warner, Drama, $21.99 DVD, NR.
Stars Robert Young, Madge Evans, David Landau.
As long as we’re not talking art or even the higher ends of entertainment, there’s something to be said for the idea that the hokier baseball movies are, the more fun they can be. One can, of course, carry the assertion way too far, but this MGM eye-roller about mass homicides during a pennant race is probably worth 71 minutes of any fan with the potential to be amused by the sight of (in very small pre-fame roles or bits) Mickey Rooney, Dennis O’Keefe, Walter Brennan, Ward Bond and others further down the historical food chain.
