One of my favorite series at the Toronto International Film Festival is Dialogues: Talking With Pictures, in which directors presenting their own work at the festival take time for a side appearance to introduce and talk about one of their own favorites. Joe Dante—director of such horror/fantasy features as Piranha (1978), The Howling (1981), Gremlins (1984), Innerspace (1987), Matinee (1993), Small Soldiers (1998), and Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003)—was attending the festival to promote his 3-D film The Hole, and on Tuesday, September 15, he stopped in at the Art Gallery of Ontario to talk about the old W.C. Fields comedy It’s a Gift (1934).
