Description du produit
El afamado autor Sheridan Whiteside tiene una lengua viperina y un cerebro que puede resolver el crucigrama del New York Times en cuatro minutos. En un viaje a Ohio que realizó para dar una conferencia, se resbaló en el hielo y quedó confinado en la casa de una pareja burguesa. Sumió la casa en caos, dirigiendo el lugar como un zar y entrometiéndose en la vida amorosa de todo el mundo. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Directed by William Keighley
While on a lecture tour in Ohio, Sheridan Whiteside (Monty Woolley) slips on the ice outside his hosts' home; until his broken leg heals, the hosts, Mr & Mrs Ernest Stanley (Grant Mitchell & Billie Burke) are forced to put up with the imperious Whiteside. This means enduring an unending stream of Whiteside's whims, caprices and vitriolic bon mots, as well as his long-distance phone calls, eccentric guests and a variety of critters, ranging from penguins to octopus. Whiteside insists upon stage-managing the lives of everyone around him. He is particularly keen on discouraging a romance between his faithful secretary Maggie Cutler (Bette Davis) and local newspaper editor Bert Jefferson (Richard Travis).
The George S. Kaufman/Moss Hart Broadway hit The Man Who Came to Dinner was inspired by the authors' mutual friend, waspish critic/author Alexander Woollcott.
The script, by the Epstein brothers, manages to retain most of the plays best lines and situations, even while expanding Bette Davis' role to justify her star status.
* Special footnote: -- Monty Woolley's favorite song for entertaining at parties was Cole Porter's "Miss Otis Regrets".

Monsieur Wiki ?
"Les sarmale ou sarmalute ou gălușcă ou encore varză umplută sont un mets traditionnel et le plat national roumain. Il s'agit d'un chou farci ou encore d'une paupiette de chou, composé d'une feuille de chou aigre de type choucroute farcie avec de la viande hachée de porc et du riz mélangé avec des légumes, des oignons, des champignons et des herbes aromatiques comme la sariette ou l'aneth. Les sarmale sont traditionnellement cuits empilés dans un pot en terre cuite dans un mélange de bouillon de borș1 et de sauce tomate. Une sauce brune appelé rântaș à base de farine et d'oignons, est souvent ajoutée à la fin de la préparation. Les sarmale sont généralement servis chauds avec un bol de smântână accompagné de mămăligă (la cruchade gasconne.
Et comme le dit le poète Alexandru Theodoranu
«Cum s-ar defini sarmaua?
Vis înaripat al verzei ce-l avu cât a durat
somnul lung metamorfozic în butoiul de murat...
Potpuriu de porc și vacă, simfonia tocăturii,
imn de laudă mâncării, înălțat în cerul gurii.
O cochetă care-și scaldă trupu-n sos și în smântână
și se-nfășoară în varză ca în valuri de cadână.
O abilă diplomată ce-a-ncheiat o strânsă ligă
c-o bărdacă de vin roșu și-un ceaun de mămăligă.
Oponentă din principiu și un strașnic adversar
pentru tot ce e dieta sau regim alimentar.Lire la suite ›

Where to start? Once upon a time in New York between the world wars there was an eating drinking gambling association of leading talents in New York. Members were expected to be big eater, able to hold their booze, sharp tongued and talented. Mostly they were writers, but they attracted actors and editors and they met every day at a round table in the Algonquin Hotel.
A founding member of the Algonquin Round table was Alexander Woolcott. He was a large man who would prove himself the master of several art forms. He had been one of the most influential Broadway theater critics, He was one of the first national radio personalities. He had volunteered as a private soldier in World War I and would be among the founders of Stars and Stripes. He also had some modest success as a stage actor.
Wolcott could be prissy, presumptuous, and bossy and someone you wanted in your corner. If he could be a pain, he was certainly much befriended and gave of much himself to his friends. The story is that he was the guest of friends the comedy writing team of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. Having worn out his welcome the two were inspired to convert their experiences into a play about hosting an oversized character while admitting he also had an oversized heart. The play was a major success, big enough to support several road shows, one of which would include Wolcott playing himself under the name of Sheridan Whiteside.
Reports are that Wolcott was fairly good at playing himself. For the movie version we get Monty Woolley, a man with more than sufficient regal bluff who delivers the comedy. This would be his breakthrough role.
The Man who came to Dinner is almost top of the line farce. At its most mantic, there are several jokes being balanced and tossed about. A middle class family has its plain domestic existence bent to the service of a hugely egotistical radio commentator Sheridan Whiteside. There is a steady stream of famous names coming in and out, deliveries at all hours, criminals and Asian diplomats arriving for dinner and in a tradition later adopted by the Muppets, there are penguins.
Several plots revolve around the over worked under appreciated Secretary, Bette Davis(grace Blair) in a rare and well done role at one comedic and second banana. Two things not usually associated with her. Cameo roles include Jimmy Durante as Banjo, a role meant to be either Groucho or Harpo Marx ( or both, both were regulars at the Algonquin) and Ann Sheriden as Lorraine Sheldon a scheming actress most likely meant as a friendly dig at Gertrude Lawrence.
As was certain in these comedians all ends well, well mostly , good is rewarded, mostly and when in doubt there are the penguins and a running gag about getting a call through to Eleanor Roosevelt and the kids of the house and the nurse and ..... Relax have fun and if it is fun for you, go and look up which roles are supposed to be which actors.
It is fun to watch around Christmas time, when your tree is up, packages under, and drinking a hot cup of tea or coffee in your comfy chair - this show kind of comes to fruition during the Christmas holiday (in the movie). Watch the outrageous packages that arrive for the old crank, listen as the help announces who they are from (all the current (1940s) actors/actresses/dignitaries of the day). You give a sigh of relief at the end, when he is finally leaving........WHOOPS!!!!
