ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I was very impressed with A Hollis Frampton Odyssey on Criterion Blu-ray on this week. A fabulous package for fans of the avant-garde. Also offering immense value is Eclipse 32: Pearls of the Czech New Wave. I also thought The Jayhawkers via Blu-ray was an entertaining western. Relating to that genre we have the classic Westworld providing a sweet presentation in 1080P. Two other new Olive Blu-rays I enjoyed were Hit! and Badge 373. Going on a 50's monster bent this past week I got a kick out The Monster That Challenged the World of and Reptilicus. But the more modern creature-feature, Night of the Lepus, is beautifully pure schlock. I've always liked the Harris/Redgrave/Nero Camelot and it looks and sounds amazing on Blu-ray. Warner Archive DVDs I gave a thumbs-up to were the Bogie vehicle Chain Lightning, Joseph E. Lewis' Desperate Search with Jane Greer and the vintage mystery The Case of the Black Parrot. I suggest passing on Big City and Blu-rays Killer Nun, Cinema Verite and The Girl on the Motorcycle. Boo-ya. More next week!


Chain Lightning - This second-echelon Humphrey Bogart vehicle casts Bogie as a bomber pilot who becomes a free-lance flyboy after the... war. Eleanor Parker, Bogart's wartime love, is now the secretary of aircraft manufacturer Raymond Massey. Partly out of an effort to link up with Parker again, Bogart signs on as a test pilot for Massey's firm. Richard Whorf, Massey's safety supervisor, dislikes Bogart's grandstanding. When Whorf is killed, Bogart feels responsible. He volunteers to test Whorf's experimental escape device by flying at high-speed. The test is a success (though it's nip and tuck for a while), and Bogart survives for a final clinch with Parker. DVD Release Date: February 23rd, 2012

Eclipse 32: Pearls of the Czech New Wave - Of all the cinematic New Waves that broke over the world in the 1960s, the one in Czechoslovakia was among the most fruitful, fascinating, and radical. With a wicked sense of humor and a healthy streak of surrealism, a group of fearless directors—including eventual Oscar winners Miloš Forman and Ján Kadár—began to use film to speak out about the hypocrisy and absurdity of the Communist state. A defining work was the 1966 omnibus film Pearls of the Deep, which introduced five of the movement’s essential voices: Věra Chytilová, Jaromil Jireš, Jiří Menzel, Jan Němec, and Evald Schorm. This series presents that title, along with five other crucial works that followed close on its heels, one from each of those filmmakers—some dazzlingly experimental, some arrestingly realistic, all singular expressions from a remarkable time and place. DVD Release Date: April 24th, 2012

Desperate Search - A passenger flight out of Vancouver crashes in remote mountains. On the ground, two lone survivors, a brother and sister perhaps 9 and 7 years old, gather food and blankets. In the air, bush pilot Vince Heldon (Howard Keel), the children’s father, guides his plane in a quest to find the downed aircraft. Meanwhile, against this backdrop of search and survival, another drama unfolds: pilot Nora Stead (Patricia Medina) arrives to join the search. She’s the ex-Mrs. Heldon, and her presence brings unresolved issues of that broken marriage to the surface while also creating problems for Vince and his new wife (Jane Greer). Joseph Lewis, who grabbed notice with his shoestring noir Gun Crazy, here guides another film admired for getting much from a small budget. Lee Aakers, soon to be famed for his role on TV’s The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, portrays the boy whose survivalist adventure includes confrontations with a mountain lion. DVD Release Date: May 10th, 2012

The Case of the Black Parrot - In this classic crime thriller, passengers start to die aboard a transatlantic ship while a reporter (William Lundigan) races against time to stop a notorious international criminal before he kills again. After falling for a beautiful passenger (Maris Wrixon), the reporter becomes intrigued by the mysterious circumstances surrounding an antique chest her uncle recently purchased. They suspect it's a master forgery by the infamous Black Parrot, but before the couple can make any headway in their investigation, her uncle is found dead. Based on Eleanor Robeson Belmont and Harriet Ford's play and Burton E. Stevenson's novel, this provocative mystery serves up perplexing false clues, unexpected twists and a truly surprising conclusion. DVD Release Date: May 3rd, 2012

Big City - Margaret O’Brien sings, dances and keeps the faith in this heart-warming musical drama costarring Robert Preston, Danny Thomas and George Murphy. Midge (O’Brien) is the luckiest girl in New York. Found abandoned as an infant, she’s adopted by a cantor (Thomas), a reverend (Preston) and a Catholic cop (Murphy), who raise her together as only three loving fathers can. But when the police officer marries a saloon singer (Betty Garrett) and insists on sole custody, the trio winds up in court, where Midge, with the help of a kind-hearted judge (Edward Arnold), must decide what’s best for her fathers as well as herself. Highlighted by opera legend Lotte Lehmann in her only American film appearance and featuring Broadway star Betty Garrett in her big-screen debut, Big City is MGM at its musical best, packed with “good production values, charming musical numbers and standout performances” (The Motion Picture Guide). DVD Release Date: May 2nd, 2012

Cinema Verite BD - Decades before housewives had screaming matches with each other on camera in public, the Loud family became a television sensation of a new kind when they appeared on the groundbreaking 1973 PBS documentary series An American Family. Witness the birth of reality television as Diane Lane, Tim Robbins and James Gandolfini star in HBO Films' presentation of Cinema Verité. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

A Hollis Frampton Odyssey BD - An icon of the American avant-garde, Hollis Frampton made rigorous, audacious, brainy, and downright thrilling films, leaving behind a body of work that remains unparalleled. In the 1960s, having already been a poet and a photographer, Frampton became fascinated with the possibilities of 16 mm filmmaking. In such radically playful and visually and sonically arresting works as Surface Tension, Zorns Lemma, (nostalgia), Critical Mass, and the enormous, unfinished Magellan cycle (cut short by his death at age forty-eight), Frampton repurposes cinema itself, making it into something by turns literary, mathematical, sculptural, and simply beautiful—and always captivating. This collection of works by the essential artist—the first release of its kind—includes twenty-four films, dating from 1966 to 1979. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

Night of the Lepus - Giant Flesh-Eating Rabbits Ravage American Southwest After Scientist Slips Up! Such is the plot of this unintentionally campy horror outing. The trouble begins when a researcher's experiment to use hormone injections to control Arizona's burgeoning rabbit population goes terribly awry, causing the cuddly rodents to grow to enormous proportions. In order to facilitate their growth, the rabbits need extra protein, and what better source than the relatively slow-moving human population that surrounds their huge subterranean lairs. DVD Release Date: November 10th, 2010

Camelot BD - Joshua Logan directs this lavish version of the Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe Broadway success with Richard Harris,... Vanessa Redgrave, and Franco Nero in the lead roles originally portrayed on Broadway by Richard Burton, Julie Andrews, and Robert Goulet. The musical, based on T.H. White's The Once and Future King, chronicles the legend of King Arthur (Richard Harris) and his tortured love affair with his queen Guenevere (Vanessa Redgrave). Arthur first encounters Guenevere, on the day of their wedding, in the enchanted forest surrounding Camelot. After the wedding, Arthur's bliss at his marriage to the lovely Guenevere prompts him to establish the Knights of the Round Table, a lofty order of chivalry in which all the member knights are bound by a desire the help the oppressed, keeping faith with trust and honor. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

The Cats - In what would be one of her final roles, Rita Hayworth (Gilda) plays the alcoholic mother of two sons who are at war with each other over a case of stolen jewels. When Jason (Giuliano Gemma) steals a caseload of jewels and kills several men along the way, he feels it is his pay for accomplishing the heist that his older brother Adam (Klaus Kinski) arranged. But Adam feels differently and soon brother is pitted against brother in a web of double and triple crosses involving Jason's girlfriend. After Adam has the family doctor sever the tendons in Jason's gun hand, Jason seeks revenge. All of this is set to a groovy '60s soundtrack, fashion and dubbing. Klaus Kinski is pure menace as the older brother and Rita Hayworth chews up the scenery as a mother who cares more about getting her whiskey than the well-being of her sons. Ironically, she took the role after Joan Crawford turned it down. DVD Release Date: April 26th, 2012

Reptilicus - A portion of the tail of a prehistoric reptile is discovered in Denmark. It regenerates into the entire reptile, which proceeds to destroy buildings and property and generally make a nuisance of itself. It can fly, swim, and walk, and has impenetrable scales, which makes it difficult to kill. DVD Release Date: March 20th, 2009

Marquis de Sade's Justine BD - The film follows two sisters, Justine (Koo Stark) and Juliette (Lydia Lisle) Jerome, whose parents die young and leave them alone and seemingly helpless. They at first take shelter in an orphanage run by nuns but when their inheritance dries up, the nuns send them on their way. While Justine tires to abide by her moral upbringing and live a pure, chaste life her sister is far more willing to explore the ways of the flesh and indulge in all that the world has to offer her. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

The Monster That Challenged the World - The Monster That Challenged the World is the misleadingly title for one of the more well-regarded second-echelon horror films of the 1950s. An underwater earthquake in the Sargasso sea yields up the eggs of a long-extinct sea monster. Once hatched, the monster's offspring (which resemble huge snails) sustain themselves by sucking the life forces of various unlucky human land dwellers. Even worse, these horrendous creatures procreate at an incredible rate, laying 3000 eggs per sitting. Eventually, the monsters are neutralized by Modern Science, save for one stray snail that very nearly lunches on a little girl. DVD Release Date: December 28th, 2008

Badge 373 BD - Badge 373 is a crime thriller in the tradition of "The French Connection" and "Serpico". Eddie Ryan (Robert Duvall), a tough, no-nonsense and abrasive Irish cop, has to turn in his badge after scuffling with a suspect who then falls to his death from a rooftop. But that doesn't stop him from heading out on a one-man crusade to avenge his partner's murder, all the while neglecting his new live-in girlfriend, Maureen (Verna Bloom). Ryan's investigation leads him to Puerto Rican drum kingpin, Sweet Willie (Henry Darrow), and the shipment of guns for the Puerto Rican Crime Syndicate. Real life policeman, Eddie Egan plays Duvall's Lieutenant. Screenplay by journalist, Pete Hamill and directed by big-time Hollywood producer, Howard W. Koch. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

Hit! BD - A federal agent, Nick Allen (Billy Dee Williams) whose daughter dies of a heroin overdose is determined to destroy the drug ring that supplied her. He organizes a small independent task force of mercenaries to travel to France in order to kill the nine leaders of a Marseilles drug syndicate. The motley crew of angry American citizens includes construction worker, Mike Willmer (Richard Pryor); call-girl Sherry Nielson (Gwen Welles); rogue cop, Dutch Schiller (Warren J. Kemmerling); college professor Barry Strong (Paul Hampton) and the kindly old Jewish couple, Ida (Janet Brandt) and Herman (Sid Melton), who want to inflict Old Testament revenge upon the syndicate. Photographed by legendary cinematographer, John A. Alonzo (Chinatown) with a beautiful score by Lalo Schifrin (Dirty Harry). Directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File). Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

The Jayhawkers BD - Set in the Kansas territory during the middle of the 19th century, this is a visually evocative but conventional western.... The story deals with Darcy (Jeff Chandler), a ruthless man, one of the raiders known as "Jayhawkers" who wants more than what life is willing to offer. Starting out as anti-slavery activists, the Jayhawkers' origins are barely mentioned in the story, as Darcy uses them to support his growing power. Opposing his unscrupulous bid for control of the region is Cam (Fess Parker, of Davy Crockett fame on American TV) an ex-convict. Cam knows that Darcy is responsible for the death of his wife while he was in prison and he plans to bring him down. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

Killer Nun BD - Anita Ekberg and Joe Dallesandro star in this cult horror film about a demented nun sliding through morphine addiction into madness, whilst presiding over a regime of lesbianism, torture and death. Anita plays the head nurse/nun in a general hospital, whose increasingly psychotic behavior endangers the staff and patients around her. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012

Westworld BD - Despite faults (chiefly a dispersal of its energies), a wonderfully enjoyable fantasy about a futuristic holiday resort offering robot worlds of exotic sex, romance or violence amid the licence of ancient Rome, the gallantries of a medieval chateau, or the gunslinging frontier town. Best and most fully realised of these worlds is the Western, with Brynner (brilliant) as the robot gunman required to die, bloodily, every time a greenhorn tourist challenges him to the draw. Until, that is, the robots begin to malfunction - or rebel: only the computers that designed them know exactly how they work - and the Brynner machine sets out, now part mad killer and part Frankenstein monster, in quest of revenge. Great stuff. Blu-ray Release date: April 3rd, 2012

The Girl on the Motorcycle BD - Director Jack Cardiff also served as scripter and cinematographer of the Anglo-French co-production Girl on a Motorcycle... (La Motocyclette) The girl in question is played by leather-clad Marianne Faithfull, who speeds through Alsace on her cycle, en route to a tryst in Heidelberg with her ex-lover (Alain Delon). In a series of flashbacks, she recalls the events leading up to the present critical moment, including her desultory marriage. Based on a novel by Andre de Pieyre, the R-rated Girl on a Motorcycle was originally released in English-speaking countries in an X-rated version titled Naked Under Leather. Based on the stage play by Walter Melville. Blu-ray Release date: April 24th, 2012
