Charlie Chan Collection:
Bros. Home Entertainment brings back the legendary master of crime in the
Charlie Chan Collection -- four beloved films
making their DVD debut, and now available for the first time, newly
remastered, as a single collection. Included are Shadows Over
Chinatown, starring Sidney Toler in one of his last Chan films,
plus Docks of New Orleans, Shanghai Chest, and The
Golden Eye starring Roland Winters, the last actor to play the
detective on film.
Writer Earl Derr Biggers created Charlie Chan, a fictional
Chinese-American sleuth, in a series of printed tales beginning in 1923.
As early as 1926, the first of more than 48 Charlie Chan films was put on
the silver screen. Actor Warner Oland, born in Sweden, began a popular run
for Fox in 1931 in Charlie Chan Carries On. After its success, Fox
would produce 15 more Chan films starring Oland. Not surprisingly, the
films became the most popular in 1930s China.
After Oland died, Sidney Toler, an American actor with Scottish roots,
took on the Chan role. Toler starred in 22 Chan films, first for Fox and
later for Monogram Studios. After Toler's death, Roland Winters became
Chan in six more films. The character has also been featured frequently on
radio, television and in the comics.
Singin' In the Rain: 60th
Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition

and Debbie Reynolds in a 60th-anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition
newly remastered in 2011 4K transfer of the best-loved Hollywood musical

The Journey: Starring Yul
Brynner and Deborah Kerr
In 1956, a band of
international refugees flee Budapest, escaping the bloodshed of the
Hungarian uprising. Among them are Lady Diana Ashmore (Deborah Kerr) and
her lover, Hungarian Paul Kedes (Jason Robards, Jr.), who is forced to
hide both his nationality and the wound he suffered in a street battle.
The frightened refugees are halted at the Austrian border by Soviet Major
Surov (Yul Brynner). Surov finds himself drawn to Diana as he interrogates
the refugees in a hunt for suspicious persons. If Paul is discovered,
everyone’s life may be in danger. The Journey reunites Kerr and Brynner
three years after they won acclaim in The King and I. Filmed on the
Austro-Hungarian border by Anatole Litvak, this blend of Cold War thriller
and human drama is “exciting…an absorbing romantic adventure…a taut and
tearing account of a plausible border incident?
The Great Diamond
Robbery: Starring Red Skelton
Red Skelton was already a
presence on early TV, brining creations like Clem Kadiddlehopper and
Freddie the Freeloader into millions of living rooms, when he made his
last film for MGM, the studio that had been his movie home since 1940. The
beloved funnyman portrays diamond cutter Ambrose C. Park (the middle
initials stands for "Central") in The Great Diamond Robbery. Park is eager
to demonstrate his talent to his employer by working on the rare Blue
Goddess diamond. It's a delicate task. One mistake and the gem will be
worthless. Two mistakes: it'll be worthlesser! But Park confidently takes
on the job, accompanied by criminals who have convinced him they're his
long-lose family and who secretly aim to steal the diamond after it's cut.
Will Park find out he's being hoodwinked before it's too late? Most
certainly. And that's when the antic finale begins...
Half A Hero: Starring Red
Audiences always roared with delight when Red Skelton
went one-on-one with post-war life in The Yellow Cab Man, The Fuller Brush
Man and other films. In Half a Hero, the legendary comic took on a slice
of 20th-century Americana that still resonates today: the suburbs. Red
plays Ben Dobson, a magazine writer whose boss approves of Ben because he
lives in a cramped Manhattan apartment instead of "the slums of tomorrow":
the 'burbs. So, of course, when Ben movies his family to a sprawling
housing development, he struggles (hilariously_ to keep the fact a secret.
Jean Hagen, a year after her iconic portrayal of the itsy-voiced screen
siren in Singin' in the Rain, plays Ben's long-suffering wife, and singer
Polly Bergen makes a guest appearance with a torrid nightclub-scene
rendition of "Love."
Our Casablanca Page
Anniversary Edition - Blu-ray
Casablanca: easy to enter,
but much harder to leave, especially if you're wanted by the Nazis. Such a
man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), whose only hope is
Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical American who sticks his neck out
for no one - especially Victor's wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the ex-lover
who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's
transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more
- personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance. Winner of
three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Casablanca marks its 70th
anniversary as a beloved favorite with so many bonuses that no matter how
often you've seen it, this beautiful 70th Anniversary (Limited and
Numbered) Edition looks like yet another beginning of a beautiful
friendship with an unforgettable classic.
Elizabeth Taylor ventured
but once into the scarified world of Grande Dame Guignol, and Night Watch
is the striking result. Taylor's matron in menace role is that of Ellen
Wheeler, a lonely insomniac trapped in a loveless marriage and by an
obsession with a creepy gothic manse next door. One night while indulging
in her alcohol fueled ramblings, Ellen spots a corpse inside the vacant
house. A corpse that resembles her deceased, two timing first husband...a
corpse that no one else thinks exists. Adapted from a play by suspense
mistress Lucille Fletcher (Sorry, Wrong Number, The Hitch-Hiker, Night
Man), Night Watch re-teams Liz with her Butterfield 8 co-star Laurence
Harvey, playing Ellen's emotionally distant second husband in one of his
final film performances. Genre stalwart Billie Whitelaw rounds out the
By 1935, every movie fan in the world knew
Jean Harlow as both a blonde bombshell and a delightful comedienne. To
expand her range, the studio gave her a dramatic role in Reckless ?and
Harlow was a hit. She plays musical star Mona Leslie, the bride of a
champagne-stewed blueblood. When he blows his brains out, Mona is
suspected of his murder, igniting media frenzy. The film is also notable
for its Jerome Kern-Oscar Hammerstein title tune (Harlow, whose
considerable skills didn’t extend beyond acting, was dubbed and body
doubled in the musical numbers), plus a cast that includes Franchot Tone,
Rosalind Russell, and as a hotshot promoter, William Powell, who would
become the last love of Harlow’s tragically short life.
The pre-code tale of
adultery that squeaked past the censors! Coming at the tail end of 1934,
Housewife was released shortly before the imposition of the “Hays Code?
would render its subject matter ‘verboten!?This turgid melodrama finds
modern bachelor girl Patricia Berkeley (Bette Davis) dueling it out with
modern housewife Nan Reynolds (Ann Dvorak) for the affections and
ministrations of Nan’s husband, William (George Brent). Ambitious office
manager William finally succeeds in setting up shop for himself in the
advertising biz thanks to help from copywriter Pat and ideas from
housewife Nan. When his late nights working at the office with Pat turn
into something else, Nan must decide if William is worth fighting for.
That is, if Pat will let her. Davis is at her vamping, doe-eyed best as
the jaded sophisticated Pat, a copywriter who knows how to spin the right
line to lure a guy.

The George Sanders Saint Movie Collection
Many years before Roger Moore donned the halo of The Saint, George Sanders
played Simon Templar in this series of five mysteries. Sanders had yet to
cement his acting reputation playing the ultimate in cads, and brings his
worldly air of charm, wit, and erudition to his portrayal of the debonair
thief turned detective. Sander's mordant wit and cynicism lift the film
series' banter up a level with its added bite. Ably supported by a great
rotating cast of players, Sanders' The Saint helped set the standard for
detective tales for decades to come. Five films, one great set, one
