ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): I'm still a big fan of Tommy Lee Jones' Dave Robicheaux of In the Electric Mist and we've found a region-free Blu-ray of the Director's Cut. It's always fun to revisit Lynch and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is filled with all the director's dream-like, symbolic, imagery. I love the dialogue in True Grit and while the new film should be entertaining - it may not be better than the original. The stylish Vampire Circus looks and sounds great on Blu-ray with all it's Hammer-Horror charm. Critics poo-poo'ed Devil but I thought it was solid Twilight-Zone-esque entertainment. Michael Douglas steals the show with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps as ex-con Gordon Gekko and the two-strip Technicolor silent The Black Pirate is more than simply a curiosity - it's a damn good film. On DVD Gregory's compared Anthony Mann's The Great Flamarion discs of this noirish gem. Fritz Lang gets double coverage this week with his under-appreciated Hangmen Also Die and masterful Moonfleet. The sultry "Love Goddess" gets her own boxset, The Films of Rita Hayworth, that leaves a bit to be desired a/v - wise. The Warner Archive offers up another vintage thriller in The System, and Sony's similar 'on-demand' system supplies both Ida Lupino in Ladies in Retirement and Anita Ekberg as exotic dancer Virginia Wilson in Screaming Mimi. Lastly Eric has covered The Black Klansman - a tale of racial strife.


The Black Pirate BD - In the first grand-scale epic shot entirely in Technicolor, the sole survivor of a ship pillaged by buccaneers poses as the mysterious Black Pirate and infiltrates the nest of bandits. Michel (silver screen legend Douglas Fairbanks) mounts an elaborate ploy to recover the brigands' treasure, reclaim the ship and rescue the divine Princess (Billie Dove) held captive there. This beautiful edition available exclusively on Blu-ray has been remastered in High Definition from the 35mm restoration negative. Blu-ray Release date: December 14th, 2010

Vampire Circus BD - A little girl is brutally slain by a vampire in a tiny 19th century Austrian village. Seeking revenge, the townspeople invade the foreboding castle of Count Mitterhaus and kill him for the crime. As the Count dies, he curses the villagers and vows that their children will all die so that he may someday return to life. Fifteen years later, as the village is ravaged by the plague, a traveling circus comes to town and distracts the villagers from their current hardships. Little do they know that their troubles are only beginning! The circus is actually a troupe of shape-shifting vampires and, as the local children start disappearing, they realize the prophecy of the long dead Count is coming true. Blu-ray Release date: December 14th, 2010

Moonfleet - Lang’s film begins with orphaned John Mohune (Jon Whiteley) setting out to forge a relationship with his fabulous but unseen relative/father figure Jeremy Fox (Stewart Granger.) Unlike the lone antiheroes of other great Lang 50s pictures – Glenn Ford in The Big Heat, Arthur Kennedy in Rancho Notorious – Mohune isn’t seeking revenge, but rather the affirmation of an idealized hero. In Lang’s Universe the reverse of character is often the truth, and in the course of Mohune’s two substantial scenes in the “underground” (the Pirate’s lair and the Well) Granger is precipitously forced into an ambivalently redemptive act of violence to save Mohune’s life. I wholeheartedly recommend viewing and reviewing Bernard Eisenschitz’s lucid and poetic short commentaries. Warner Archive DVD DVD Release Date: October 12, 2010

Devil BD - Trapped in an elevator high above Philadelphia, five people discover that the Devil is among them – and no one can escape their fate. This chilling, supernatural thriller from M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs) will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way to a heart-stopping ending with a truly wicked twist. Blu-ray Release date: December 21st, 2010

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps BD - Gordon Gekko, fresh from prison, re-emerges into a much harsher financial world than the one he left. He now has to... play catch-up and redefine himself in a different era. He has to become relevant again. But a young, idealistic investment banker learns the hard way that Gekko is still a major manipulator and if there's one place where you can redefine yourself, one place where your relevance is a deal away, it's Wall Street. Blu-ray Release date: December 21st, 2010

The Films of Rita Hayworth - As a result of her sultry good looks and talent displayed in every genre, including comedies, dramas, musicals, thrillers, and even westerns, Rita Hayworth became the unmatched Queen of the lot at Sunset and Gower, in Hollywood, and one of Columbia's most important contract stars. By 1940, a picture starring Rita Hayworth guaranteed the highest level of production values and her films are some of the most iconic of their era. Now Sony Pictures and The Film Foundation have teamed again to bring five of her finest films to DVD--three of them for the first time. DVD Release Date: December 21st, 2010

The Black Klansman - In THE BLACK KLANSMAN, Richard Gilden plays Jerry Ellsworth in light-skinned blackface, but his character dawns whiteface to infiltrate the Klu Klux Klan after his daughter is killed in a church bombing and a young man is murdered for patronizing a white coffee shop after the passing of the Civil Rights amendment. DVD Release Date: January 18th, 2011

True Grit BD - The cantankerous Rooster is hired by a headstrong young girl (Kim Darby) to find the man who murdered her father and fled with the family savings. When Cogburn's employer insists on accompanying the old gunfighter, sparks fly. And the situation goes from troubled to disastrous when the inexperienced but enthusiastic Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) joins the party. Laughter and tears punctuate the wild action in this extraordinary Western which features performances by Robert Duvall and Strother Martin. Blu-ray Release Date: December 14th, 2010

The System - After a frightened teenager is cut down by police bullets during a botched heist, a reporter investigates. The story leads him to prominent businessman John E. Merrick (Frank Lovejoy), the secret boss of the gambling ring that had the youth ensnared in a web of wrong-way bets. And now Merrick’s carefully constructed world of family, upscale neighborhoods, country clubs and community respect begins to crumble around him. In this canny thriller, Lovejoy, the granite-jawed leading man in such ’50s gems of paranoia as The Hitch-Hiker and Shack Out on 101, takes his tough-guy persona and gives it a gutsy twist, creating an unusual and provocative crime-caper protagonist: the crook with a conscience. DVD Release Date: September 7, 2010

Ladies in Retirement - As the paid companion to wealthy Leonora Fiske, Ellen Creed (Ida Lupino) has become accustomed to her employer’s good humor and generosity. When her deranged sisters (played with great relish by Elsa Lanchester and Edith Barrett) are evicted from their lodgings in London, Ellen invites them to stay for a visit. As the visit turns into weeks, Leonora’s patience is exhausted, and she orders the sisters, and Ellen, to leave. Desperate to protect her sisters and give them a secure place to live, Ellen takes drastic measures — then tells everyone that Leonora is on a trip, leaving her in charge of the house. But when the neighbors and Ellen’s roguish cousin (Louis Hayward) become suspicious, she has more to worry about than just her sisters’ welfare. This gothic suspense thriller boasts great comic performances plus an excellent dramatic role for Ida Lupino. Evelyn Keyes plays a supporting role as the love-struck housemaid. DVD Release Date: November 23rd, 2010

Screaming Mimi - Anita Ekberg plays the gorgeous and tortured dancer with the Great Dane named Devil, who, after being nearly attacked by a man with a knife, is put into an asylum under the obsessive care of psychiatrist Dr. Greenwood (Harry Townes). When the girl begins to show signs of improvement, the psychiatrist assumes her care on the outside so she can resume her dancing career. The proprietor (Gypsy Rose Lee) of El Madhouse, a tawdry nightclub, hires the girl but then a series of murders by “The Ripper” attracts the attention of a newspaper reporter (Phil Carey), and the doctor and reporter face off to try to protect the girl. A sensual statue of a dancing girl called “Screaming Mimi” seems to play a part in the bizarre mystery. DVD Release Date: November 23rd, 2010

The Great Flamarion - Erich Von Stroheim portrays the title character in this clever film noir directed by the then up-and-coming Anthony Mann. The Great Flamarion, an egotistical vaudeville performer specializing in a trick-gunshot act, at first pays little attention to his beautiful assistant Connie, played by Mary Beth Hughes. Connie is married to Al (Dan Duryea), Flamarion's other assistant, but she has become bored with her husband and begins to flirt with the boss, which leads to the "accidental" death of her husband during a routine performance. Not realizing that his pretty assistant has just played him, Flamarion expects to be romantically compensated for his "unfortunate aim" but the treacherous Connie has other plans. DVD Release Date: Decmeber 5th, 2003

Hangmen Also Die - Because it's been little seen, and because people tend to shrug off contemporaneous World War II films as "propaganda," Hangmen Also Die has never received its due. It's a brilliant, riveting movie, made in response to the atrocities committed against the Czech people following the assassination of Reichsprotektor Heydrich, Hitler's personal "hangman." Under Fritz Lang's ferociously stylized direction, the duel of wits between the Nazi occupiers and the Prague underground--"a ghost army sworn to haunt them till their blood runs cold"--becomes the stuff of legend: virtually another installment of Die Nibelungen, and a dynamic variation on the urban phantasmagoria of the Mabuse films and Spione and M. DVD Release Date: October 26th, 2006

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me BD - The television show began famously with the discovery of high-school coed Laura Palmer's (Sheryl Lee) plastic-wrapped body. Fire Walk with Me is the story of how she got that way. It is a necessarily grim story as the promiscuous and increasingly hysterical Laura juggles two teenage boyfriends, bad boy Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and sensitive James Hurley (James Marshall); S&M playmates Jacques Renault (Walter Olkewicz) and Leo Johnson (Eric DaRe); and the many men she picks up while hooking. That list doesn't include "Bob" (Frank Silva), the man who she claims has been sneaking in through her bedroom window since she was 12 to rape her, and who she is beginning to suspect is actually her father, Leland (Ray Wise). Blu-ray Release Date: November 3rd, 2010

In the Electric Mist BD - New Iberia, Louisiana. Detective Dave Robicheaux (Tommy Lee Jones) is on the hunt for a serial killer who preys on young women. Driving home from another gruesome crime scene, Dave meets glamorous Hollywood star Elrod Sykes (Peter Sarsgaard). Sykes is in town shooting his new movie, with backing from local crime kingpin Baby Feet Balboni (John Goodman). He tells Dave he saw a body lying in a swamp - the decomposed corpse of a black man in chains. The discovery brings memories hurtling out of Dave's past. He senses the two cases are linked. But as Dave gets closer to the murderer, the murderer gets closer to Dave and his family... DFW Blu-ray Release Date: May 10th, 2010
