Description: In december 2008 ging Micha Wertheim voor de grap in première. Het programma gaat over de nieuwsverslaving die Wertheim bij zichzelf en om hem zelf heen constateert. Een verslaving aan nieuws die er voor zorgt dat de vraag naar nieuws groter is dan het aanbod. Het gevolg, zo stelt Wertheim is een door nieuwspap gecreëerde ‘debatbubbel’ die ieder moment kan ontploffen en zorgen voor een debatcrisis. Als voorbeeld gebruikt Wertheim de media-rel rondom zijn voortijdig afgebroken optreden in Roermond, die precies samen viel met de media-ophef rondom het verschijnen van de movie Fitna van Geert Wilders. Micha Wertheim voor de grap werd voor televisie opgenomen door Norbert Ter Hall en in november 2010 door de Vara uitgezonden. De theaterregie werd verzorgd door Dick van den Toorn.a

This early Gregory La Cava movie is a great comedy-drama, starring the pretty and talented Mary Astor, who is the show's main attraction, because I have to admit that I found the another leading player, Robert Ames, who plays her husband, rather dull in this one.The film's plot has to do with the marital issues between Astor and Ames, after the former arrives from a travel to France. Noteworthy performances by John Halliday as a debonair boy of the globe who befriends Astor and Edward Everett Horton as Ames' Business Partner, who's highly amusing in his role, as always, and gets to tell a lot of witty lines & wisecracks.Early 30's and Mary Astor fanatics will have a nice time watching this film, which at 68 minutes, is very short by today's standards.
A SMART WOMAN uses duplicitous ingenuity to attempt to victory back her adulterous husband.Mary Astor shines in this sophisticated--and unfortunately obscure--little soap opera, which rewards its viewers with an clever script and fine acting. Crisp, cool & calculatingly composed, Astor uses her intelligence to receive exactly what she wants. Inviting her spouse's mistress to spend the weekend in their country mansion may not seem like the usual tack to follow, but for Astor it's all part of her minigame plan.Robert Ames plays Astor's erstwhile husband; Ruth Weston is his outspoken sister. Noel Francis is the gold digger after his cash & Gladys Gale is her ambitious mother. All four offer nice support, but the greatest fun comes from John Halliday as an affable English knight agreeably in tune with Astor's schemes and snippy Edward Everett Horton as Ames' brother-in-law. As usual, Horton effortlessly steals his each scene.
The nice Mary Astor never looked better and rarely had such a juicy role. She had an incredibly long career, with nary a dud, and it spanned films like this, the poignant "Dodsworth," the justly popular "Malteste Falcon," "Meet Me in St. Louis." Its highlight was the magnificently over-the-top "Great Lie," for which she won of the most richly deserved Oscars in that award's history.Here she is a loving wife who returns from a trip to Europe only to learn that her husband plans to ditch her. She learns from his sister and his business partner, who become her partners in thwarting him.He invites his old-digging girlfriend and her bossy mother for a weekend at their country home. So she invites a very eligible nobleman she met on shipboard and she and her cohorts collaborate to create it seem hat she is in love with him and more than glad her husband has found someone else.The girlfriend is treated humorously, not cruelly. (An example of a cruelty in a comedy is the Gail Patrick hero in "My Favourite Wife." Nor is the satisfied ending forced. Everything works out. The terrible are dispatched, the nice reunited.Gregory La Cava directed and boy! This makes clear how various a fine director can create a relatively routine film look from the method it would like if handled by a routine Doctor.
