ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): What an amazing week of film - I am still a bit mesmerized by Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin - which, I suspect, should prove to be misunderstood initially while gaining cult popularity over time. It's great to see Billy Wilder's Witness for the Prosecution come to Blu-ray - an essential purchase. We'd have preferred the 6-minute longer Pre-release version of John Ford's iconic My Darling Clementine, but I am so pleased, regardless, to own this on Blu-ray. The Wild One reached classic status as a youth-rebellion landmark, Brando leading the charge - and it is available on region FREE Blu-ray. The Song of Bernadette remains one of the most revered films on faith, and Jen Jones radiates a divine presence in the 1080P resolution. Jane Campion's An Angel at My Table is a beautiful film and is also available on a region FREE Blu-ray. Spaghetti western primo Sabata, on Blu-ray, takes a long stride ahead of the past DVD. The political, war-romance, Arch of Triumph with Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer and Charles Laughton also get a Blu-ray release from Olive Films. Above-average Civil war western Two Flags West is directed by Robert Wise and is another region FREE Blu-ray disc. Steeped in Walter Hill's own machismo style Southern Comfort - an excellent adventure-thriller - available on Blu-ray. I continue to extol Sean Penn's The Crossing Guard - but the Echo Bridge Blu-ray is flawed, and likewise Love in the City with segments by Antonioni and Fellini has been given an error-ed rendering to Blu-ray by Raro. On DVD we compared the superior French DVD of Noir masterwork Beyond the Forest with an ultra bad-gal in Bette Davis. More 'Dark Cinema' comparisons by Gregory reveal important information about Film Chest editions of both Hollow Triumph and The Bigamist plus a review of the lesser Noir Accomplice. Eric covered SDs of The Liver Birds Vol. 2 and horror's The Perfect House and the obviously-titled Blood Soaked. Always here for you... Gary.


Under the Skin BD - Scarlett Johansson as an extraterrestrial femme fatale cruising the streets of Glasgow in Jonathan Glazer’s cerebral sci-fi horror fantasy “Under the Skin” is an indelible personification of predatory allure. Wearing a dark wig and a fake-fur jacket, her character, an alien with a sinister agenda, is as fetishized an object of desire as Marlene Dietrich admired through the lens of Josef von Sternberg. You may also think of Ava Gardner, as perfect a female specimen as Hollywood ever produced, coldly working her wiles. Blu-ray Release date: July 15th, 2014

Love in the City BD - An early example of the Italian omnibus film, a subgenre of irresistible conceptual appeal and inevitable built-in unevenness (RoGoPaG, Le Streghe, Boccaccio '70). The brainchild of neorealism doyen Cesare Zavattini, it huddles a batch of shorts from various directors hinging on amore thematics, whether built around strands of melancholy flirting (Dino Risi's surveilling of a provincial jitterbugging hall) or forlorn lechery (Alberto Lattuada's flipbook of males double-taking over strolling lookers). Not surprisingly, Zavattini's own contribution, following a poor unwed mother through the daily grind of Roman boarding houses and crowded welfare offices, is the one most obviously cuffed to neorealist ideas (the heroism of the wretched) and tropes (an unbroken diaper-changing shot apes the real-time integrity of the maid's morning routine in Umberto D.). By contrast, the more interesting segments by Michelangelo Antonioni and Federico Fellini push the aesthetics toward bladelike abstraction (alienated women reenacting botched suicide attempts for Antonioni's cooling lenses) and fantasy-tinged satire (Fellini's account of a pure, struggling country girl rung through a matrimonial agency). Blu-ray Release Date: July 22nd, 2014

Sabata BD - This flamboyant spaghetti Western comes with acrobats, bearded knife-wielding drunks, a strolling minstrel with a banjo which doubles as a gun, pantomime villains and standard virtuoso gunplay. Van Cleef, all in black, looks mean and surly, but this doesn't stop him from standing up for the Texas small folk whose livelihoods are threatened by rapacious railroad tycoons. The sound editing is ludicrous, the costumes are absurdly gaudy, performances come close to caricature and the dubbing is always noticeable, but that doesn't lessen the entertainment value one jot. Blu-ray Release Date: July 22nd, 2014

Arch of Triumph BD - Paris 1938, city of last resort for the stateless, including a surgeon (Boyer) whose obsession with a Nazi sadist (Laughton) leaves him vulnerable to deportation and ill-prepared for romance with Ingrid Bergman. The original Remarque novel is too hefty to fit into two hours screentime, and if Milestone chooses to focus on the tale of the doctor's revenge and his doomed romance, he also breathes life into an assembly of supporting roles: concierge, café proprietor, a general reduced to night-club doorman, none of whom is played for comic relief. Bergman seems out of place as an Italian/Romanian good-time girl, but Russell Metty gives harsh light and inky shadow to seedy hotel rooms we'll see again in Touch of Evil ten years on. Blu-ray Release Date: July 15th, 2014

Witness for the Prosecution BD - Screen legends Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton star in this "brilliantly made courtroom drama" (Film Daily) that left audiences reeling from its surprise twists and shocking climax. Directed by Billy Wilder, scripted by Wilder and Harry Kurnitz, and based on Agatha Christie's hit London play, this splendid, one-of-a-kind classic "crackles with emotional electricity" (The New York Times) and continues to keep movie lovers riveted until the final, mesmerizing frame. When a wealthy widow is found murdered, her married suitor, Leonard Vole (Power), is accused of the crime. Vole's only hope for acquittal is the testimony of his wife (Dietrich)... but his airtight alibi shatters when she reveals some shocking secrets of her own! Blu-ray Release date: July 22nd, 2014

Southern Comfort BD - Nine National Guardsmen enter the Louisiana swamp for routine training, but an error in judgment by one of the team incites an all-out war with some angry Cajuns who know the territory like the backs of their hands. Armed with a precious few bullets, and confused by the dimly lit, moss-covered maze into which they’ve stumbled, the guardsmen know they’ll be picked off one by one, until they come up with a solution using the only resources they have left...their wits. Blu-ray Release date: July 8th, 2014

My Darling Clementine BD - The most famous and sublime treatment of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, John Ford's My Darling Clementine is by any measure one of the most classically perfect Westerns ever made. Henry Fonda plays a hard, serious Wyatt Earp leading a cattle drive west with his brothers when a stopover in the wild town of Tombstone ends in the murder of his youngest brother. Wyatt takes up the badge he had turned down earlier and tames the wide-open town with his brothers (Ward Bond and Tim Holt), all the while waiting for the wild Clantons (led by Walter Brennan's ruthless Old Man Clanton) to make a mistake. Victor Mature delivers perhaps his finest performance as the tubercular gambler Doc Holliday, an alcoholic Eastern doctor escaping civilization in the Wild West. Blu-ray Release Date: June 6th, 2014

The Song of Bernadette BD - A classic 1943 telling of the tale of Bernadette Soubirous (Academy Award-winner Jennifer Jones), a peasant girl vouchsafed visions of a “beautiful lady” believed by many to be the Virgin Mary, The Song of Bernadette features Oscar-winning work by cinematographer Arthur C. Miller and composer Alfred Newman (available here as an isolated track). Also on tap are sterling performances by the likes of Vincent Price, Charles Bickford, Gladys Cooper, Lee J. Cobb, Anne Revere, and Roman Bohnen. This story of simple faith in dark times remains one of the most revered films of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Blu-ray Release Date: March 2013

The Crossing Guard BD - Sean Penn wrote and directed this tale of loss, guilt, and revenge. The daughter of Freddy and Mary Gale (Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston) was killed by a drunk driver, John Booth (David Morse). The death of their child took a heavy toll on the Gales; their marriage broke up, and, while Mary has remarried and attempted to put her life back together, Freddy has become an embittered alcoholic, seething with directionless rage and searching for a purpose in life. Freddy intends to kill Booth as soon as he's released from prison, as he believes that jail was not a severe enough punishment for his daughter's death. Blu-ray Release Date: September 11th, 2012

Two Flags West BD - Two Flags West is set in the waning days of the Civil War. Colonel Clay Tucker (Joseph Cotten) is one of several Confederate prisoners who agree to fight alongside Union soldiers against the Indians in New Mexico. Tucker's Union commander Kenniston (Jeff Chandler) despises all "Johnny Rebs," holding them responsible for the death of his brother. Kenniston has other problems too; he is deeply in love with his sister-in-law Elena (Linda Darnell), but refuses to express his devotion out of loyalty to his dead sibling. He also hates Indians with a passion, and has endangered the safety of his fort by brutally killing a chief's son. There seems to be only one way for Kenniston to purge the demons within him, and he finds that way during a climactic Indian attack. Blu-ray Release date: July 26th, 2013

The Wild One BD - The Black Rebels Motorcycle Club, a group of bikers led by Johnny Strabler (Marlon Brando), rides into Carbonville, California during a motorcycle race and causes trouble. A member of the gang, Mouse (Gil Stratton), steals the second-place trophy (the first place one being too large to hide) and presents it to Johnny. Stewards and policemen order them to leave. Blu-ray Release date: June 13th, 2013

An Angel at My Table BD - With An Angel at My Table, Academy Award–winning filmmaker Jane Campion brings to the screen the harrowing true-life story of Janet Frame, New Zealand’s most distinguished author. The film follows Frame along her inspiring journey, from a poverty-stricken childhood to a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia and electroshock therapy to, finally, international literary fame. Beautifully capturing the color and power of the New Zealand landscape, the film earned Campion a sweep of her country’s film awards and the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. Blu-ray Release Date: April 17th, 2014

Blood Soaked - A freshman on her first day of college is seduced by an older co-ed and shares a sleepless night in the New Mexico desert. But this newly formed lesbian couple's first day together is violently interrupted by a pair of orphaned sisters with a taste for kidnapping, torture and the creation of flesh-eating zombies in their underground bunker! As they fight for their lives and attempt escape, the couple uncovers the sister's terrifying plan for a Fourth Reich army of the dead. Now, only the couple's wits and survival skills will save them from this undead Nazi nightmare. Featuring music by Eternal of Wu-Tang Killa Beez. DVD Release Date: June 17th, 2014

The Perfect House - A Young couple's dream home turns into a house of horrors when the disturbing, violent acts of three generations of doomed families is reawakened for them to witness. Now they must fight for their lives to escape the terrible secrets hidden within the walls of THE PERFECT HOUSE. Starring horror favorites Felissa Rose and Jonathan Thiersten of the SLEEPAWAY CAMP series. DVD Release Date: July 22nd, 2014

The Liver Birds Vol. 2 - The Liver Birds is the hit TV comedy series set in 1970’s Liverpool starring Polly James as Beryl and Nerys Hughes as Sandra, two flatmates with ever-diverging views and a deep and hilarious friendship. Freshly moved into a bigger and more comfortable ¬ flat, Sandra and Beryl face all of life’s challenges with a smile and the occasional song, from the risks of becoming Miss Hot Pants 1972 to the perils of pet parrots and hired horses; from cranky Christenings and Valentine’s Day-doings to a very special poetry reading led by everybody’s favourite Liverpudlian poet in a real-life appearance, Roger McGough. DVD Release Date: July 7th, 2014

Beyond the Forest - Of all the no-good women that Bette Davis has portrayed in her numerous elaborate demonstrations of the deadliness of the female sex, she has never done any more unpleasant nor more grotesque than the creature she plays in the Warners' "Beyond the Forest," which came to the Strand yesterday. This time she's not only a mean one: she's a callous and calculated fiend whose flamboyant selfishness and cruelties are on a virtually extra-human plane. As a matter of fact, she is so monstrous-so ghoulishly picturesque-that her representation often slips off into laughable caricature. La Collection TCM DVD Release Date: March, 2014

Hollow Triumph - "The Scar" (1948) Originally released under the title "Hollow Triumph," (and also known as The Man Who Murdered Himself), this dandy little film noir thriller from Eagle Lion features Paul Henreid with a chance to lose his leading man image for not one, but two sinister performances. When crooked gambler (Henreid) seeks to hide from a rival mobster, he hatches a plot to take the place of a psychiatrist that he's a dead-ringer for. But it's not long before the good doctor's secretary (Joan Bennett) is on to his scheme. DVD Release Date: March 11th, 2014

The Bigamist - In an era when Hollywood was dominated by well-entrenched males, Ida Lupino carved a niche for herself as a successful director, becoming only the second woman to be admitted to the director’s guild. Confident of her own capabilities as an actress, Ida stubbornly refused to play any hand-me-down roles - an act, that led to many suspensions. Never one to be done in by circumstances, Ida turned to direction when roles began to dry up. The Bigamist is a classic example of Ida’s talents both in front of a movie camera and behind it as well. Film Chest DVD Release Date: March 25th, 2014

Accomplice - Accomplice is based on Frank Gruber's novel on the eccentric private detective Simon Lash. Simon (Richard Arlen) is the brusque, bookish ex-lawyer now a noted but struggling private detective based in Los Angeles, who is asked by Joyce Bonniwell (Veda Ann Borg), the woman who jilted him at the altar ten years earlier to marry Jim Bonneville (Edward Earle), to find her missing amnesiac banker hubby.
