Jacqueline Audry usually approached her text with great reverence, but here she was revisionist to the point of destruction. Quite why screenwriter Pierre Laroche felt it necessary to emasculate Jean-Paul Sartre's existential masterpiece remains a mystery. Yet it's plain to see what a disservice his decision to add extra characters and incorporate other-worldly flashbacks does to the relentless intensity of the original drama, in which a recently deceased trio discover the bitter truth that “hell is other people”. However, Arletty imparts some much-needed class as the ageing lesbian desperately trying to dissuade flirty Gaby Sylvia from hitting on homosexual Frank Villard.

Misery, c'est le nom de l'héroïne populaire qui a rapporté des millions de dollars au romancier Paul Sheldon. Après quoi il en a eu assez : il a fait mourir Misery pour écrire enfin le " vrai " roman dont il rêvait. Et puis il a suffi de quelques verres de trop et d'une route enneigée, dans un coin perdu…

Mara, a woman of easy virtue, saves a Polish girl in a train accident where her parents die. She would like to adopt her, and would succeed, if a former pimp wouldn't come back into her life.
The story is told with a long flashback.
Unlike the other heroines of Matarazzo's melodramas, here the protagonist is always a lonely woman, predestined to defeat: to no avail are her attempts to redeem herself and change her life. Fate prevails.

The loss of the use of a finger altered the direction of Vinnie Burke's career. A onetime violinist and guitarist, after his left pinky knuckle was crushed while working at a munitions factory, he was forced to shift to double bass. In the second half of the 1940s he played with Joe Mooney, Tony Scott, and Cy Coleman. Later, he played with the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, Tal Farlow, Marian McPartland, Don Elliott, Vic Dickenson, Gil Mellé, Bucky Pizzarelli, John Mehegan, Chris Connor, Eddie Costa, and Bobby Hackett. He led his own band in 1956 and led small combos into the 1980s.

Conversing with Artie Shaw – as Loren Schoenberg and I did in preparation for annotating these further treasures from his last recordings – is an exhilarating experience. This is because this master of the clarinet excels at making connections. Just as he always knew how to get from one note the next in such a way that the result was a cohesive statement – a story, as jazz musicians used to put it – he knows how to link one idea to another, to make allusions, to place things in context, within a frame of reference that ranges wide and far. Artie Shaw always told a story when he played, and he had that sound – immediately, unmistakably identifiable as his and his alone. It is a treat to hear him tell us some timeless stories we hadn’t heard before. Dan Morgenstern.
