Fewer and fewer people have a first-person memory of her, unless they're old enough to have watched Ed Sullivan, but William Gazecki's heartfelt portrait all but brings her back to life.
I wish the film, which is mostly a standard-issue talking-heads-and-clips affair, had showcased more of her performing, but what we see still justifies her fleeting fame.
She's a great character, so it's sad that "The Outrageous Sophie Tucker" isn't a better movie.
"The Outrageous Sophie Tucker" is an outrageously dull documentary. This is not the subject's fault.
The Outrageous Sophie Tucker is rich with such tall tales and juicy nuggets, befitting a larger-than-life icon.
Though placing the cheerleading Eckers front and center as key interview subjects gives their film a self-congratulatory, gee-whiz quality, "Outrageous" compensates by giving you a good sense of who Tucker was and how she got where she did.
You will love every minute of this walk through show biz history.
Sophie Tucker was a great talent that deserves a great film. This isn't it.
The film bombards the viewer with too many snippets from the six decades' career, a number of them still photos from her 400-plus scrapbooks and some jazzed up in hokey animation.
A fascinating, archeological piece of showbiz history.
Strongest when reveals her innovations in musical style and marketing, weakest when it strings together anecdotes. . . Original materials are seen in constant montages.
An important, generally enjoyable tutorial on a great show-woman's life. My only gripe against it is the too prominent played on film by biographers Lloyd and Susan Ecker, who also co-produced.
