ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): BFI's Blu-ray package of Rossellini The War Trilogy has the most value this week - what an incredible set - our highest recommendation! I was also immensely impressed with the Interstellar Blu-ray package. An ambitious, almost 3-hour, film with a riveting story, hypnotic effects and an entire second Blu-ray of supplements - plus they include the superfluous film cell! Also incredible value. It's very pleasing to see, the essential Noir, Robert Siodmak's The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry reach Blu-ray - even a bare-bones effort from Olive Films. Speaking of value, Blue Underground's The Dario Argento Collection offering stacked Blu-rays of The Cat O'Nine Tales, Deep Red and Inferno - is available at a great Pre-Order price. Unbroken has many positives including its inspirational story. Another gripping modern film that we can highly endorse on Blu-ray. The Imitation Game is an intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man and the Blu-ray of the bio-pic film makes for another fabulous film night. Reaching Blu-ray is Woman of Straw - a far better murder-crime-thriller than I was anticipating - with vintage Sean Connery and enticing Gina Lollobrigida. Thumbs Up. Stranger at my Door is an above-average moral western with plenty going for it. I think the value isn't quite there for the current Blu-ray asking price but, if on sale, western genre fans might find it a very pleasing distraction. I did. I still like David and Lisa with the pale-eyed Keir Dullea but the Blu-ray transfer raises questions. The Shanghai Story is a bit of a surprise and has the sultry Ruth Roman - always worth watching in the higher resolution. We have always loved Cy Endfield's 1961 Mysterious Island and the out-of-print Twilight Time Blu-ray. We expose a bona-fide bootleg in the Spanish Resen disc. Despite the wallet-centric allure - we still suggest a 'pass'. On DVD Eric covered Vera Chytilová's marvelous Traps by Second Run - an easy recommendation. Gregory reviewed Wildcat Bus - a B-movie with the return of the iconic Fay Wray of King Kong fame. I applaud Daniel Auteuil's first two kicks-at-the-can, Marius and Fanny, of Marcel Pagnol's classic Marseilles trilogy. I was really blown away by the 1950 Three Came Home with Claudette Colbert 0- a great film, and I liked the odd period piece The Forbidden Street with Dana Andrews and Maureen O'Hara. Nothing to do with the film but the Fox Archives Night People MoD is primed to be a coaster - lets find a widescreen replacement - stay tuned. I really don't want to say goodbye - but it is time to have a nap. Stay healthy.


David and Lisa BD - David (Keir Dullea), a young man suffering from an overwhelming fear of being touched, is admitted to a home for disturbed teenagers run by Dr. Alan Swinford (Howard Da Silva). Though at first resistant to interacting with the other patients, David finds himself drawn to Lisa, a schizophrenic girl who speaks only in rhymes. Their relationship, which grows from antagonism to one of trust, gives them both the strength to confront their inner demons and hope for the future. Blu-ray Release date: March 31st, 2015

The Imitation Game BD - During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Blu-ray Release date: March 31st, 2015

Interstellar BD - A breathtaking filmmaking achievement, INTERSTELLAR has been named one of the Top Ten movies of the year by Rolling Stone, Esquire, the New York Post and more, and has received five Academy Award nominations including Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Original Score. Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey stars as ex-pilot-turned-farmer Cooper, who must leave his family and a foundering Earth behind to lead an expedition traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars. The film also stars Academy Award-winners Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine and Academy Award-nominees Jessica Chastain4 and John Lithgow. Blu-ray Release date: March 31st, 2015

The Shanghai Story BD - A captivating drama reminiscent of Grand Hotel (transposed to a Cold War setting), The Shanghai Story follows the intersecting lives of Western expatriates who are held in confinement by the Communist Chinese government. Edmond O’Brien stars as Dr. Dan Maynard, a physician determined to uphold the Hippocratic oath, without bending to the will of his heartless captors. The Chinese commander (Philip Ahn) suspects a spy among the Americans, and Maynard believes the informant must be Rita King (Ruth Roman), an icy beauty born in Tangiers, clad in diamonds and furs, seemingly immune to the martial law that hangs like a shadow over Shanghai. When an intelligence agent (Whit Bissell) is killed in a daring escape, O’Brien joins forces with a small-time hoodlum (Richard Jaeckel) to convey information to the Allied forces. But when Rita learns of the plot, will she bring about his success — or his downfall? Blu-ray Release date: March 31st, 2015

Mysterious Island BD - Jules Verne's classic adventure is perfectly matched with Ray Harryhausen's timeless movie magic in Mysterious Island. Based on Verne's sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this rousing Civil War-era fantasy begins when a band of Union war prisoners (and one Confederate straggler) escape in a hot-air balloon, which crash-lands on the titular island of mystery. Verne's novel doesn't include any gigantic creatures, but Harryhausen's version--under the capable direction of genre specialist Cy Endfield--features giant oysters, bees, a prehistoric Phororhacos (a giant chickenlike bird!), an undersea cephalopod, a giant crab, and enough danger to keep its resourceful ensemble on constant alert. Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom, ably filling James Mason's shoes) is a third-act hero, pursuing an ill-fated dream to save humanity from hunger and war. Resen Blu-ray Release Date: August 29th, 2014

Woman of Straw BD - Taken from Catherine Arley's French novel, La Femme de Paille, it's very post-Agatha Christie, with a scorpion's-tail twist. Watching it today is like time travel to a microcosm that exists as its own hermetically-sealed universe, much like those well-made but thoroughly musty stage constructs that one could almost always depend on encountering in the playhouses of London's West End. It's thinly populated by stock characters, yet enjoyable all the same, partly for its sense of sturdy, knowing craftsmanship, partly for the ways the actors inhabit their stereotypes. There also are entertaining bonuses in the interactions. Never for a moment do we believe in the sexual byplay between Connery's villain and Lollobrigida's nurse, hired, as she later learns, to facilitate the nephew's murder plot. Far from projecting sexual chemistry, the two leads seem matter and anti-matter. Blu-ray Release date: April 14th, 2015

Rossellini The War Trilogy BD - Roberto Rossellini is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. And it was with his trilogy of films made during and after World War II—Rome Open City, Paisan, and Germany Year Zero—that he left his first transformative mark on cinema. With their stripped-down aesthetic, largely nonprofessional casts, and unorthodox approaches to storytelling, these intensely emotional works were international sensations and came to define the neorealist movement. Shot in battle-ravaged Italy and Germany, these three films are some of our most lasting, humane documents of devastated postwar Europe, containing universal images of both tragedy and hope. Blu-ray Release Date: April 6th, 2015

Stranger at my Door BD - After carrying out a brazen bank robbery, gunfighter Clay Anderson (Skip Homeier) finds safe haven in the home of soft-spoken minister Hollis Jarret (Macdonald Carey), his beautiful wife Peg (Patricia Medina) and son (Stephen Wootton). Hollis extends to Clay every hospitality and gives him every chance at redemption, despite the undeniable sexual attraction that is clearly forming between Peg and the gunman. Blu-ray Release Date: March 31st, 2015

The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry BD - A 1945 thriller directed by Robert Siodmak and produced by Joan Harrison (who scripted several Hitchcock features during the 40s and produced his 50s TV show). A small-town bachelor (George Sanders) dominated by his two sisters plans to kill one of them after falling in love with a city woman. This has been described as a good melodrama marred by a cop-out ending that resulted from 40s censorship; Stephen Longstreet and Keith Winter wrote the script, adapted from a play by Thomas Job. With Geraldine Fitzgerald, Ella Raines, and Sara Allgood. Blu-ray Release Date: March 31st, 2015

Unbroken BD - That story, in its human reach and cosmic scale, in its different permutations and theaters of war, has been recounted in memoirs, novels, fiction films and all too painfully true documentaries. It emerges again in Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 best seller, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption,” which is the basis for the movie. With some narrative rejigging, a lot of compression and one significant exception, Ms. Jolie follows the lead of the book, which focuses on the first 25 years or so of Mr. Zamperini’s life. She also sweeps through his early education as a peewee gangster, truculent son of Italian immigrants and accidental athlete who discovers he can run like the wind, but she gets to the war sooner. Blu-ray Release date: March 24th, 2015

The Dario Argento Collection BD - Three classic Dario Argento thrillers. THE CAT O NINE TAILS: When a simple robbery at a research institute leads to a series of brutal murders, a blind puzzle maker and a tenacious reporter begin their own investigation of the crimes. With nine different clues to follow, they uncover a shocking web of twisted genetics and dark sexual secrets that will finally lead them to a shattering climax of violence and suspense. DEEP RED: An English jazz pianist living in Rome witnesses the brutal hatchet murder of a renowned psychic and is quickly drawn into the savage crime. With the help of a tenacious female reporter, the pair track a twisted trail of deranged clues and relentless violence towards a shocking climax that has ripped screams from the throats of audiences for more than 30 years! INFERNO: A young woman stumbles upon a mysterious diary that reveals the secrets of The Three Mothers and unleashes a nightmare world of demonic evil. As the unstoppable horror spreads from Rome to New York City, this unholy trinity must be stopped before the world is submerged in the blood of the innocent. Blu-ray Release Date: March 31st, 2015

Wildcat Bus - Seven years after helping to rescue RKO Radio from bankruptcy as the heroine of King Kong, Fay Wray returned to the studio as star of the modest programmer Wildcat Bus. Wray is cast as Ted Dawson, whose father Charlie (Oscar O'Shea) runs a lucrative bus line. Before long, however, the Dawsons' livelihood is threatened by a wildcat bussing firm that isn't above sabotaging its competition. Charles Lang plays impoverished playboy Jerry Walters, who unwittingly goes to work for the crooked bus firm before switching allegiance to the Dawsons. The sight of the beauteous Fay Wray dressed as a garage mechanic is the principal redeeming factor of Wildcat Bus. DVD Release Date: April 15th, 2014

Three Came Home - Based on the autobiographical book by Agnes Newton Keith, Three Came Home stars Claudette Colbert as Mrs. Keith. Trapped in Borneo during the Japanese invasion, Mrs. Keith and her British husband (Patric Knowles) are penned up in a prison camp along with several other subjects. Despite the humanitarian views of camp commander Col. Suga (Sessue Hayakawa), Mrs. Keith is subject to torture, starvation, and humiliation at the hands of the guards, with Suga helpless to intervene lest he incur the wrath of his own superiors. DVD Release Date: November 27th, 2012

Traps - From the great Czech filmmaker Vera Chytilová, renowned director of DAISIES and FRUITS OF PARADISE, comes a controversial and disturbing satire of violence, violation and veterinary practice. TRAPS is a feminist black comedy about a vet who, after being raped by two men, uses her particular expertise to take her revenge. Oscillating between tragedy, comedy and the grotesque, the film is an analysis of morality, power and twisted masculine attitudes in contemporary society. Chytilová is a filmmaker with a reputation as both provocateur and philosopher - and TRAPS is an angry, funny, socio-critical film about thuggery, impotence and sterilising the ruling classes. DVD Release Date: March 23rd, 2015

The Forbidden Street - The Anglo-American co-production Britannia Mews was released in the U.S. as The Affairs of Adelaide, then reissued as Forbidden Street, the title it carries today. Set in the Victoria era, the film focuses upon Adelaide Maureen O'Hara, a young lady of good family who renounces both name and fame when she marries an impoverished artist Dana Andrews. When her husband is killed in an accident, Adelaide is blackmailed by a spiteful old hag Dame Sybil Thorndike who claims that the girl killed her spouse. Enter a handsome young barrister who is the living image of Adelaide's late husband and who, accordingly, is also played by Dana Andrews. He extricates Adelaide from her plight, reunites her with her family, and along the way falls in love with her himself. Ring Lardner Jr. adapted Britannia Mews from a novel by Margery Sharp. DVD Release Date: August 22nd, 2012

Night People - When an American soldier is kidnapped by the Soviets in the Eastern sector, Van Dyke is verbally assaulted by the soldier's influential industrialist father Leatherby (Broderick Crawford), who demands that something be done immediately. The Colonel realizes that it's not as simple as that: in return for the soldier, he is expected to turn over an elderly couple, both former anti-Nazi activists, to the East Germans, who will probably execute the couple. Leatherby backs off a bit when he meets the couple, then agrees to let Van Dyke handle the crisis in the most diplomatic manner possible. Things come to a head when the Colonel discovers that one of his trusted aides (Anita Bjork) is in league with the Soviets. Filmed on location in Germany, Night People is capped by a deliciously ironic coda. DVD Release Date: October 17th, 2012

Marius - Marius lives in bustling 1920s Marseille where his childhood friendship with fishmonger's daughter Fanny blossoms into love. Despite this he is restless and yearns to run away to sea. Only a figure of Auteuil's stature could have managed the task of bringing this French national treasure back to the big screen; he contributes colour, lush production values and a degree of faithfulness to the much hallowed 1930s film adaptations, as well as his own performance in the role of César, Marius' dockside bar-owning father. DVD Release Date: March 9th, 2015

Fanny - Picking up the story where Marius left off, Fanny finds herself pregnant and abandoned by Marius who is sailing the seven seas. She is persuaded to accept the romantic advances of an older, kind-hearted and rich widower. Only a figure of Auteuil's stature could have managed the task of bringing this French national treasure back to the big screen; he contributes colour, lush production values and a degree of faithfulness to the much hallowed 1930s film adaptations, as well as his own performance in the role of César, Marius' dockside bar-owning father.
