ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): It should always considered an amazing week when we get essential Film Noir classics - restored and on Blu-ray! Flicker Alley brings us Norman Foster's Woman on the Run and Byron Haskin's Too Late For Tears looking as good as they ever have on digital. With the commentaries and extras these are must-own releases and get out top spot of the week. BFI's new Blu-ray of Anthony Asquith + A.V. Bramble's silent masterpiece Shooting Stars is a highly recommended package. This key film of the silent era has also had a new restoration. Masters of Cinema bring us Kiyoshi Kurosawa's supernatural love story Journey to the Shore to 1080P Blu-ray and it's one you don't want to miss. I remain a big fan of 1976's The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane with parts thriller, mystery and horror starring 13-year old Jodie Foster and Martin Sheen as the 'neighborhood creep'. Kino new Blu-ray advances upon the existing UK one. We can confirm that Arrow's upcoming Steelbook in the US of Mario Bava's Blood and Black Lace is of the same quality of their UK Blu-ray. Michael Crichton's Runaway may have its flaws but its appeal has not diminished over the years as a crackling good sci-fi crime-adventure and fans will appreciate having it on Blu-ray. Andrea Bianchi's Burial Ground is schlock zombie gold and great to have on Blu-ray from 88 Films in the UK. To go along with it for a horror double-feature night is Creepshow 2 with three bone-chilling tales - also in 1080P. The cerebral, quirky comedy Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me with Dustin Hoffman has made it to Blu-ray from Kino - as has the satiric sex farce Candy with its star studded cast. Only one DVD review this week but it's a notable one; Samuel Fuller's Run of the Arrow - a "revisionist Western that makes complex statements about the nature of race, identity, and loyalty". A must see.

Film Noir Quote for the week

"I don’t believe in sometime. With me, it’s now or never."- 99 River Street

Live long and prosper, this week - Gary


Journey to the Shore BD - Winner of the Un Certain Regard Best Director award in Cannes, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Journey to the Shore confirms the director's place as a contemporary auteur. Mizuki's husband, Yusuke, drowned at sea three years ago. When he suddenly comes back home, she is not that surprised, instead, Mizuki wonders what took him so long. Together they embark on a journey to meet the people who helped him on his journey in a world where the living and the dead coexist in an almost normal manner. Blu-ray Release date: May 23rd, 2016

Blood and Black Lace BD - Director Mario Bava's second thriller revolves around a fashion salon owned by wealthy Cristina (Eva Bartok) and her greedy lover Max (Cameron Mitchell). The salon is a front for cocaine-trafficking and blackmail, so when model Isabella (Lea Kruger) is viciously strangled, leaving a detailed diary behind, many of the people connected with the salon become very nervous. Isabella's roommate Nicole (Arianna Gorini) finds the diary and soon has her throat clawed out with a piece of medieval armor. Peggy (Mary Arden), who borrowed abortion money from Isabella, is tortured and has her face pressed into a red-hot iron. The bodies continue to pile up until a conspiracy is exposed and the perpetrators start getting their just desserts. Arrow Steelbook Blu-ray Release Date: July 5th, 2016

Candy BD - Candy Christian (Ewa Aulin) is an innocent yet luscious high school student and when fate sends her on a far-out journey of sexual discovery - Candy on her trippy travels, encounters lust and lunacy at the hands of a drunken poet (Richard Burton), a Mexican gardener (Ringo Starr), a patriotic general (Walter Matthau), a mad surgeon (James Coburn), and a mystic guru (Marlon Brando). Can the world's most stalwart members get their own sweet piece of Candy? Or will a final freaky twist swallow her whole forever? John Astin, Charles Aznavour, John Huston, Elsa Martinelli, Florinda Bolkan, Anita Pallenberg, Enrico Maria Salerno and boxing legend Sugar Ray Robinson co-star in this notoriously sexy '60s satire, featuring music by The Byrds and Steppenwolf... Blu-ray Release date: May 17th, 2016

The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane BD - Rynn Jacobs (Jodie Foster) is a smart thirteen-year-old girl who lives in a secluded house that she and her father rent. After a number of locals come calling, they find that Rynn's father is never around. Suspicions are soon raised and members of the community - including the local police officer (Mort Shuman) and the landlord's sleazy son (Martin Sheen) - make it their business to pry into Rynn's affairs. But how far will she go to hide the truth of what she has been up to? Kino Blu-ray Release date: May 10th, 2016

Too Late For Tears BD - Too Late for Tears has all the elements of my favorite type of film noir: a vicious woman--so crafty and so evil she fools, manipulates and destroys the men in her life, a once-in a lifetime opportunity to get rich (so what if it involves a few corpses), the double cross when you least expect it, and a fast trip all the way down that slippery moral slope to film noir purgatory. Directed by Byron Haskin (I Walk Alone and The Naked Jungle) and based on a novel by Roy Huggins, Too Late for Tears showcases former fashion model, gravel-voiced Lizabeth Scott in one of the two major roles she played in Hollywood. Blu-ray Release Date: May 17th, 2016

Woman on the Run BD - A lost gem rediscovered! Thanks to the efforts of the Film Noir Foundation, this terrific 1950 film noir, the only American print of which was burned in a 2008 fire, has been rescued and restored to its original luster. Join the wild chase around San Francisco as a man goes into hiding after witnessing a gangland execution. Police bird-dog his wife Eleanor (Ann Sheridan), certain she ll lead them to her husband, whose testimony against the killer could bring down a crime kingpin. But Eleanor and her hubbie are Splitsville she never wants to see him again. When roguish newspaperman Danny Leggett (Dennis O Keefe) charms Eleanor into helping him track down the hidden husband there are unexpected, stunning, and poignant results. This nervy, shot-on-location thriller is a witty and wise look at the travails of romance and marriage, and perhaps the best cinematic depiction ever of mid-20th century San Francisco. Blu-ray Release Date: May 17th, 2016

Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me BD - Georgia Soloway (Dustin Hoffman) is on top of the world and about to jump off—even though, for all intents and purposes, he owns it. He is the country's most successful rock composer (64 songs in one year, not including two peace marches, a commercial and a cancer jingle). He lives in a Fifth Avenue triplex to which women feel honored to be lured, at any hour, at the last minute. His Brooklyn Jewish parents, who have the gloomy optimism of Ocean Avenue philosophers, make no unreasonable demands on him, and he has successfully unloaded a wife whom he only married because she was pregnant, and who rewarded him with two children and a companionship of the sort of frowns that would be a bit too heavy even for an Anacin commercial. Blu-ray Release date: May 17th, 2016

Shooting Stars BD - Shooting Stars is a must for any silent cinema fan. Offering a rare insight into the workings of a 1920s film studio, there are location scenes, comic stunts and an on-set jazz band which demonstrate just what life was like in the early days of cinema. Despite the directing credit going to veteran filmmaker A V Bramble, Shooting Stars is universally acknowledged to be the directorial debut of rising talent Anthony Asquith. Asquith wrote the original story, deliberately choosing the subject of movie-making itself as his theme, and the dynamic cinematographic style and professional approach to the design and lighting was introduced by Asquith himself, based on his experiences at Chaplin's studio. The script is sophisticated, incorporating iconic counterpoint and containing very few inter-titles, a trope of Asquith's work. Blu-ray Release date: March 21st, 2016

Runaway BD - Best-selling author Michael Crichton wrote and directed this science fiction thriller that combined the influences of Blade Runner (1982), comic books, and Crichton's ongoing fascination with the dangers of high technology. Tom Selleck stars as Sergeant Jack Ramsey, a single father in the near future, when robots have largely replaced humans in performing menial labor. However, the robots occasionally malfunction, threatening human life and requiring a specialist like Jack, who terminates the haywire "runaways." Investigating a particularly nasty series of recent cases, Jack and his new partner Karen Thompson (Cynthia Rhodes) discover a connection between the runaways and Charles Luther (Kiss frontsman Gene Simmons). Luther, a maniacal genius, is masterminding a plot to create an army of killing machines. With time running out, it's up to Jack and Karen to match wits with Luther and save humanity. Blu-ray Release date: October 8th, 2015

Burial Ground BD - Mounted in the wake of the international success of Lucio Fulci's ZOMBIE, BURIAL GROUND is a gory and enjoyably trashy bargain basement spin-off that is of its era (when Italian genre output was beginning to wind down) and simultaneously a throwback to the cheaper flipside of the sixties Italian gothics. While Bava, Freda, and Margheriti had Barbara Steele shrieking and running through the halls of old villas in period garb, BURIAL GROUND scripter Piero Regnoli (NIGHTMARE CITY) filled the same corridors with stranded burlesque dancers and stalking vampires (THE PLAYGIRLS AND THE VAMPIRE) and the modern-day equivalent of THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK in Franco Nero's playboy necrophile in THE THIRD EYE. Blu-ray Release Date: March 28th, 2016

Creepshow 2 BD - The stories vary widely in quality: first there's "Old Chief Wood'nhead," involving a cigar-store Indian who quite literally guards the entrance to an old general store and comes to life to avenge the murders of the elderly couple (George Kennedy and Dorothy Lamour) who owned it. The middle segment, "The Raft," features a group of obnoxious teenagers stranded on a raft in the middle of a lake at the mercy of a murderous oil slick which looks like a bunch of plastic garbage bags stitched together. Both of these suffer in comparison to the closing segment, "The Hitchhiker," in which a bored, promiscuous socialite (Lois Chiles) mows down a hitchhiker, who refuses to stay dead, returning again and again to torment her at every turn, rasping "Thanks for the ride, lady!" Despite its strengths -- a livelier pace, some creatively gory set pieces -- this is a much cheaper-looking effort than its predecessor, with the deft guidance of Romero conspicuously absent (long-time collaborator Michael Gornick took up the directorial reins); as a result, King's gross-out sensibilities don't come off as well. Makeup maestro Tom Savini appears in heavy makeup as a live-action version of The Creep, and King pops in for a bit part as a redneck trucker. Blu-ray Release Date: April 11th, 2016

Run of the Arrow - Several film historians, notably the late William K. Everson, have noted the striking resemblances between Run of the Arrow and the 1990 Oscar-winner Dances with Wolves. Rod Steiger stars as O'Meara, an Irish-brogued Confederate soldier with an intense dislike for Yankees. Unable to accept the South's defeat, O'Meara heads westward after the Civil War, to start life anew amongst the Sioux Indians. Surving a ritual rite of passage called the Run of the Arrow, O'Meara is accepted into the tribe, and shortly afterward marries Sioux woman Yellow Moccasin (played by Spanish actress Sarita Montiel, whose voice was dubbed by Angie Dickinson).
