Now imagine the warden making you this offer: marry one of the female prisoners and homestead a verdant, untamed valley. Once away from prison walls, do you bolt for freedom...or find your liberty in the land? Three-time Emmy winner Beau Bridges, Jane Merrow (The Lion in Winter) and John Mills (winner of the Academy Award* for Ryan's Daughter the same year this movie opened) star in this brawling, big-as-all-outdoors saga of the winning of the Australian West." All American Boy (1973)—"When Vic 'Bomber' Bealer enters the ring, he comes out a winner. But there may be one opponent this amateur boxer may never defeat: himself. Jon Voight answers the bell as Bealer in The All-American Boy, a provocative study of alienation from the writer of Little Fauss and Big Halsy. Brass Bancroft of The Secret Service Mysteries Collection"In his third year as a Warner Bros. contract player, U.S. President Ronald Reagan did time as a federal employee 40 years before becoming U.S. President. In 4 fast-paced B-movies, he was Lt. 'Brass' Bancroft, a stalwart Secret Service agent who risked life and limb to bring to justice illegal alien smugglers, counterfeiters and enemy spies."
Code Name: Emerald (1985)—"Nazi command pulls off what could be a turning point in the war: the capture of an Overlord, one of a handful of U.S. soldiers who knows the location of the impending D-Day invasion. Will German agents be able to make him spill more than name and rank? Not if spy Gus Lang succeeds...Ed Harris portrays Lang, leading a superb cast in step with all the intrigue of this war behind the war, including Max von Sydow, Horst Buchholz, Eric Stoltz and Patrick Stewart." Eye of The Devil (1966)—"A forbidding French chateau and its surrounding vineyards are the setting for Gothic thrills in this haunting excursion into the occult. Deborah Kerr and David Niven, costarring for the first time since Separate Tables, lead an exceptional cast (Sharon Tate, Donald Pleasence, Flora Robson, David Hemmings, Edward Mulhare, Emlyn Williams) in a chiller reminiscent of the later The Wicker Man, in which an innocent outsider to an enclosed world peels back layers of mystery to reveal a shocking truth." Fragment of Fear (1970)—"David Hemmings (Blow-up) stars in this incredibly creepy thriller as an author (and reformed addict) who attempts to investigate the recent murder of his elderly aunt. Unfortunately, given his past, no one is interested in his theories — except, of course, the killer."
Mad Room (1969)—"This compelling remake of the classic Ladies In Retirement stars Stella Stevens as Ellen, a woman living as a companion to her future mother-in-law, wealthy and very irascible widow Mrs. Armstrong (Shelley Winters). Soon after, Ellen's younger brother and sister, one of whom murdered their parents (they can't remember which one of them did it), are released from an asylum and come to live with them. And thus begins a chilling mystery loaded with twists and thrills, as director Bernard Girard (Dead Heat On A Merry-Go-Round) keeps tightening the screws brilliantly." New Orleans Uncensored (1955)—"William Castle directed this Sam Katzman production, a gritty crime thriller about a newly-discharged sailor who gets a job as a longshoreman in The Big Easy. He swiftly discovers mob corruption throughout the docks, and when a friend is killed by the gangsters, he convinces the police to let him go undercover and take matters into his own hands." One Romantic Night (1930)—"A fairy-tale ball, first kisses, broken hearts, and a beautiful princess wooed by a handsome prince. So much can happen during One Romantic Night! Two great ladies of the screen who could scarcely be more dissimilar - waiflike, vulnerable Lillian Gish (in her Talkie debut), who excelled at heart-wrenching melodrama, and barrel-figured, bulldog-faced Marie Dressler, who excelled at everything - make a marvelous team as a monarchical mother and daughter in a romantic comedy about love and marriage among the crowned heads of Europe." One Way Passage (1932)—"The seas are calm and the ship is sturdy - but the shipboard romance is doomed. Dan does not know that Joan is dying of an incurable disease. Joan does not know Dan is a convicted murderer en route to San Quentin. Still, they have four weeks to find happiness in each other's arms. Or will Dan forsake the love of a lifetime for his own life, using the vessel's Honolulu layover as a chance to escape the law?" It stars William Powell & Kay Francis. The Opposite Sex (1956)—"The Women resurfaces here as the musical The Opposite Sex, complete with an all-star cast, lines dipped in acid wit, big production numbers and fabulous '50s couture in scintillating CinemaScope. June Allyson portrays the betrayed woman. Joan Collins is the siren who steals her husband. And Dolores Gray, Ann Sheridan, Ann Miller, Agnes Moorhead, Charlotte Greenwood and Joan Blondell are assorted gal pals (true blue and envy green) who convince their demure friend to paint her claws - then use them." Sell-Out (1976)—"Respected newspaperman Haven D. Allridge (Walter Pidgeon) goes after the vicious petty Napoleon who holds a small town in his corrupt grasp. In the midst of his campaign to expose the crook, Allridge suddenly skips town. Is he a sellout, or has his crusade led him into a sinister trap?" Soul of a Monster (1944)—"Esteemed actress Rose Hobart (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, 1931) stars in this moody horror film reminiscent of the classic chillers of Val Lewton. A noted surgeon (George Macready, Gilda) lies terminally ill, but a strange woman appears and announces she can cure him; she succeeds, but the good doctor now behaves a little bit... differently."
Stolen Holiday (1937)—"It's 1936 Paris and every femme with a de rigueur sense of high fashion wears the creations of Maison Picot, the design house that's so chic, so trendy...and so very much a house of cards. It's secretly used by financial flimflammer Stefan Orloff as entry to the highest level of society, a level from which he and elegant Nicole Picot are destined to take a very hard fall." Street of Women (1932)—"Kay Francis' wide, beautiful eyes were made for reflecting suffering and they do so gallantly in this pre-Code story of the bitter fruits of adultery." The Swan (1956)—"Grace Kelly is gloriously, glamorously regal in this retelling of Ferenc Molnar's romantic fable about a shy princess whose head tells her to wed a worldly Crown Prince (Alec Guinness), but whose heart is drawn to a dashing commoner (Louis Jourdan)." Treasure Island (1972)—"The ideal match of larger-than-life role and a legendary actor, this lavish 1972 version of Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure classic stars Orson Welles as Silver, swaggering and conniving in grand skull-'n'-bones tradition." War of The Buttons (1994)—"'What's unique and marvelous here,' Oscar-winning* Chariots of Fire screenwriter Colin Welland says, 'is that it's not an adult's view of childhood at all, but a child's view of adulthood.' Welland joins fellow Chariots of Fire Academy Award winner* David Puttnam for a winning tale in which buttons are the spoils of a would-be war. The rival teens are screen newcomers, but you wouldn't know it from their seasoned performances. And if you don't know why Ireland is the Emerald Isle, this scenic charmer is breathtaking proof." You're a Big Boy Now (1966)—"Bernard Chanticleer (Peter Kastner) is a very nice young man anxious to step out into the "adult world." His plan is to move out of his parents' Long Island house into an eighth-floor Greenwich Village walkup - and try to convince someone to share his new "liberated lifestyle" with him. You're a Big Boy Now was Francis Ford Coppola's UCLA Film School Master's thesis - and a hilarious, high-speed debut in film comedy for the future maker of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now." NEW DOCUMENTARIES, MUSIC, ART, STAND-UP COMEDY & OTHER NON-FICTION FARE Angry Brigade: The Spectacular Rise & Fall of Britain's First Urban Guerilla Group— "This documentary, produced by Gordon Carr for the BBC (and first shown in January 1973, shortly after the trial), covers the roots of the Angry Brigade in the revolutionary ferment of the 1960s, and follows their campaign and the police investigation to its culmination in the Stoke Newington 8 conspiracy trial at the Old Bailey the longest criminal trial in British legal history. Produced after extensive research among both the libertarian opposition and the police it remains the essential study of Britain's first urban guerilla group." The DVD includes the short Persons Unknown.
Back From Hell: A Tribute to Sam Kinison—"A star-studded cast of comedians pays tribute to the man who turned rage into an art form." The cast includes Denis Leary, Chris Rock, Norm MacDonald, Kathy Griffin & others, and has classic performances as well. Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas—"Following decades of US-backed dictatorships, civil wars and devastating structural adjustment policies in the South, and corporate control, electoral corruption, and fraud in the North, representative politics in the Americas is in crisis. Citizens are now choosing to redefine democracy under their own terms: local, direct, and participatory... Featuring interviews with: Eduardo Galeano, Amy Goodman, Emir Sader, Martha Harnecker, Ward Churchill, and Leonardo Avritzer as well as cooperative and community members, elected representatives, academics, and activists from Brazil, Canada, Venezuela, Argentina, United States, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, and more." Citizen Fish: Underwater Overground/Gaffer Tape—"Two documentaries about punk-ska band Citizen Fish who live in South West England and spend large chunks of life playing their one-off brand of music to people who don't. Bassist Jasper takes his video camera in and out of tour vans and people's faces along the way - and this is what it looks and sounds like: clips of interviews, scenery, gigs, people, music and 'things that happen', meshed together to give a wide-angle picture of a band on (and off) tour." Dancing Dreams—"Two years ago, world-famous dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch selected 40 teenagers who had never heard her name to be part of her dance piece Contact Zone. For 10 months through opening night, the young dancers discover Bausch's genius and their own bodies. Pina Bausch died in 2009. A sensation at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival, Dancing Dreams is a testiment to Bausch's revolutionary work." Endless Summer (Director's Special Edition)—A digital re-mastered edition with all new extras. It's perfect viewing to combat the upcoming cold weather. First Earth: Uncompromising Ecological Architecture—"First Earth is about a massive paradigm shift for shelter--building healthy houses in the old ways, out of the very earth itself, and living together like in the old days, by recreating villages. An audiovisual manifesto filmed over 4 years on 4 continents, it proposes that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world; and that since it still takes a village to raise a healthy child, we must transform our suburban sprawl into eco-villages." Gauguin: The Full Story—"The first full-length biography of one of the world's most popular yet controversial artists. Gauguin is best known for his gorgeous paintings of Tahiti in which beautiful native girls disport themselves enticingly on perfect South Pacific beaches. But have these celebrated portrayals of an earthly paradise been misunderstood? And has the fame of Gauguin's Tahiti pictures blinded us to the bigger truth about his achievements? Waldemar Januszczak believes so, and his epic biography of Gauguin follows the painter through countless twists and turns in a remarkable life that takes him from an idyllic and forgotten childhood in Peru to a horrific and notorious death on the Marquesas Islands. The Gauguin who emerges from this radical re-telling of his story was not only a great painter but also a sculptor, musician, print maker, journalist and ceramicist." Kaguyahime: The Moon Princess—"The Japanese fairy-tale, Kaguyahime, tells the story of the Moon Princess who wishes to bring peace to the Earth, but only succeeds in provoking conflict. Jirí Kylián's highly individual choreography is an exquisite mirror of Maki Ishii's sometimes haunting, sometimes violent music, which fuses Western and Eastern sound elements. The Circle Percussion ensemble, conducted by Ishii, plays an integral part in the staging of the ballet. With stunning designs and lighting by Michael Simon, Kylián has created a highly-charged fusion of dance, music and theatrical images. Performed by the Nederlands Dans Theater, Kaguyahime was recorded in studio and a short introduction to the piece by Maki Ishii is available." Krik? Krak! Tales of a Nightmare—"The story of the misery of Haiti under two generations of Duvaliers: Political repression and popular rebellion, poverty and voodoo, violence and religious devotion. Documents of daily life, including an interview with Papa Doc Duvalier himself, combine with scenes from fiction films to depict what a conventional documentary cannot: The shifts between levels of reality in Haitian life." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: The Man Who Murdered Sherlock Holmes—"The life of the author who gave the world the Holmes adventures was at times as dark and mysterious as the man that he'd conceived. This is the story of the creation of the extraordinary detective who many believe really existed. The real story behind the birth of the Victorian phenomenon is both disturbing and mystifying. With dramatic visualizations, contributions from leading Holmesian experts, figures from the world of literature and research and evidence from the medical community, the Sherlock Holmes enigma is dissected and the truth begins to emerge." Maria's Story—"It is El Salvador, 1989, three years before the end of a brutal civil war that took 75,000 lives. Maria Serrano, wife, mother, and guerrilla leader is on the frontlines of the battle for her people and her country. With unprecedented access to FMLN guerrilla camps, the filmmakers dramatically chronicle Maria's daily life in the war as she travels from village to village organizing the peasant population, and helps plan a major nationwide offensive that led the FMLN into the historic peace pact of 1992." National Geographic: Great Migrations—"Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff-blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells the formidable, powerful stories of many of the planet's species and their movements, while revealing new scientific insights with breathtaking high-definition clarity.

Secrets of The Dead: Witches Curse—"The Salem Witch trials of 1692 imprisoned more than 150 people, with 19 hanged. Centuries later, a plausible, natural explanation has emerged for symptoms exhibited by those said to be bewitched. Behavioral psychologist Linda Caporeal takes viewers on a journey from wrenching convulsions and vivid delirium to contaminated crops, hallucinogenic drugs, and an ancient bog man hacked to death. Her theory may finally solve the witches' curse." Star Dreams: Mystery of the Crop Circles—"Welcome to the sensational, award-winning crop circle documentary. A hit at film festivals in Sedona, Santa Fe, Ashland and Martha's Vineyard. Featured at many conferences: The UFO Congress, Exopolitics, The American Society of Dowser's, The E.T. Dolphin Conference, The Signs of Destiny conference, Conscious Life Expo, and the World Congress on Illumination." They Came To Play"Multi-award winning They Came To Play focuses on the International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs 'hosted by the Van Cliburn Foundation', which gathers together 75 of the world's best amateur pianists for one week of intense competition and camaraderie. Candid interviews offer a glimpse into the lives of the competitors, who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions." ...AND MORE MOVIES Barking Water—"Frankie (Richard Ray Whitman) is dying. Irene (Casey Camp-Horinek) hasn't forgiven him for his past. Racing against time to find their way home, Frankie needs help and Irene is the one he turns to. Frankie, being an American Indian, dying in Indian country makes his homeward journey inherently symbolic: Just as the elderly couple drives their old Volvo wagon to a certain funeral, the old ways are dying, too.

The two set out on a journey that becomes more than getting home; confronting the past, love, understanding, and self discovery."

The once corrupted police chief (Dennis O'Neil) searches for answers and an end to the town's problems, while reliving the sins of his own past. As Mike searches for answers of his own, he inadvertently starts a chain reaction that forces the whole town to face an important truth: 'The choices we make are the only thing we own.'"

Cuban Rebel Girls/Untamed Women—"Cuban Rebel Girls: High on 'Worst Films' lists but low on the résumé of legendary swashbuckler Errol Flynn, this no-budget semi-documentary provided the actor with his humiliating screen epitaph. Playing himself, he is seen working as a correspondent arriving in Cuba to interview Fidel Castro. Go over-the-mountains with over-the-hill Flynn and see troop skirmishes, a raid and sugar cane field fires--and get an eyeful of his 16-year-old 'protégé'everly Aadland as the American girlfriend of a Cuban mercenary. I don't think we're in Sherwood Forest any more, Toto! Untamed Women: When an Air Force plane goes down in mid-ocean, its captain (Mikel Conrad) and his three-man crew wash ashore on an uncharted island of fur-clad cuties (descended from the Druids) led by high priestess Sandra (Doris Merrick). Cult rites, a hostile tribe of Neanderthal men and (of course) mucho giant-lizard footage from One Million B.C. put this near the top of the list of 'island of lost women' disasterpieces."
Exam—"Like Saw for corporate go-getters, in Exam eight young people vying for a sought-after job are locked together in a room and given one hour to finish their exam. But the exam is a blank piece of paper and the eight candidates soon realize their only competition isn't a q&a but each other." Four in a Jeep (1951)—"Intrigue and danger follow the International Police on their rounds in post-WWII Vienna in this suspenseful made-on-location drama. The city is divided between the U.S., England, France and Russia, and each Jeep patrol is comprised of one sergeant from each country.

But will the Russian sergeant say nyet?" This is the uncut, European version.
The Lightkeepers—Academy Award® winner Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, The Goodbye Girl) stars with Emmy and Tony winner Blythe Danner (Meet the Fockers) and Oscar® nominee Bruce Dern (Coming Home) in this warmhearted tale of lost love and second chances. The year is 1912. Vowing to swear off women for good, curmudgeonly Seth Atkins (Dreyfuss) takes refuge tending a remote Cape Cod lighthouse.

But the arrival of two beautiful, spirited women (Danner and Mamie Gummer) will test the men's resolve - and send all four of them sailing into uncharted romantic waters!"

Opposing this scheme is The Visitor, a sage of galactic stature who has come to this world not to kill Katy, but to end her 'confusion.'"
