KISS ME DEADLY - RALPH MEEKER - 1955 - RARE DVD
Hard-hitting detective Mike Hammer (Ralph Meeker) takes on thugs and atomic secrets in Robert Aldrich's fast-paced thriller KISS ME DEADLY, an adaptation of the Mickey Spillane novel. The night goes awry for Hammer soon after he picks up a scantily clad hitchhiker (Cloris Leachman). The next thing he knows, he's assaulted by a couple of goons and the sultry drifter turns up dead. As Hammer tracks down the murderers, he realizes he is involved in an international conspiracy--one that could cost him his life. Generally considered to be the best of the many films centering on Spillane's classic protagonist and lauded as a primary inspiration and building block for the French Nouvelle Vague, KISS ME DEADLY boasts nightmarish imagery, a careening, sinuous plot, and an unforgettable shock ending.

GASLIGHT - 1940 - ANTON WALBROOK - RARE DVD - BRITISH VERSION
The 1940 British production of Gaslight was the first of two cinematic adaptations of Patrick Hamilton's play. Oozing faux continental charm, Anton Walbrook inveigles his way into the confidence of the young mistress (Diana Wynyard) of a large Victorian mansion. Walbrook is searching for the rubies that he'd stolen from the previous owner of the house -- whom he'd also murdered. Suspecting that Wynyard is about to catch on to his secret, Walbrook enlists the aid of a sluttish maidservant to drive his loving bride crazy. The ploy almost works, but Wynyard is rescued by an unexpected ally. Gaslight was released in the U.S. as Murder in Thornton Square, then withdrawn entirely on the occasion of MGM's expensive 1944 remake of Gaslight, which starred Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman. To avoid confusion, MGM allegedly ordered that all prints of the original Gaslight be destroyed

SAPPHIRE - 1959 - NIGEL PATRICK - RARE DVD
Nigel Patrick and Michael Craig portray two Scotland Yard detectives who are investigating the murder of a young black woman who had been passing for white. As timely a topic today as when made in an England rampant with racial prejudice in the 1950s, it stays just this side of an in-depth indictment of racism and bigotry as the detectives investigate the vast array of suspects--everyone from the girl's white boyfriend and his parents who feared that the association would destroy his career to the boys that the girl had spurned when she was accepted by white society.

BOSTON BLACKIE UPDATED - 1941 - 14 CLASSIC FILMS COLLECTION - 14 RARE DVDS
Boston Blackie, the suave crook-turned-detective created by pulp writer Jack Boyle, had been popping up sporadically in films for nearly two decades by the time Columbia launched its "Boston Blackie" series in 1941. Chester Morris stars as the title character, Horatio "Boston Blackie" Black, as a former professional thief now working as a sort of freelance adventurer/detective. Blackie, just barely on the right side of the law, preferred not to get too involved with the police. "Meet Boston Blackie" is the first of fourteen Boston Blackie films that began the new adventures of Boston Blackie. The series evolves Blackie from a thief and underworld criminal into a new character that turns out to be very interesting and entertaining. Richard Lane, who plays Boston's long-suffering Inspector Farraday, was the only other character in all fourteen of the Boston Blackie movies. George E. Stone, playing Blackie's sidekick, his dim-witted cronie The Runt, was not in the first or last film but was in all the others. Charles Wagenheim played The Runt in the first film and Sid Tomack in the last. Another of the reoccuring fun characters is the irrepresible Arthur Manleder, the adventurous millionaire played by Lloyd Corrigan in some of the films. Boston Blackie was one of Columbia's most profitable film series.

This thriller is taut and suspensful, almost electric with intensity, and with all of its star players practically at the top of their form. Here is "poor hard-luck Harry" Kenyon whose wife has disapeared and apparently the only policeman (Lt. Rudimeyer) in town available to investigate it (the rest all busy marching in the parade) would rather be left alone eating his kosher corned beef sandwich from a deli on west 87th street, New York. But then comes this woman (with a little help from "Fr. Maklin") who claims to be the missing wife (Christine Prescott Kenyon) and seems to know everything about her, and to somehow be able to anticipate each and every possible evidence Harry would put forth to prove to Lt. Rudimeyer that this woman is not the real Christine Kenyon.

MOVIES IN THIS COLLECTION:

MARK OF THE WHISTLER



The Whistler, the unseen mystery-story narrator of radio fame, relates another tale that he's gleaned from "walking by night" in Mark of the Whistler. Richard Dix stars as a drifter who poses as the owner of an unclaimed bank account. Dix's new identity brings him nothing but misery as he falls victim to the actual claimant's startling secrets, lost loves and dangerous enemies--including one bent on killing for revenge. The second of Columbia's Whistler series, Mark of the Whistler was an enormous improvement on the first film, with a healthy number of unexpected plot twists within its 60-minute time frame. Mark of the Whistler was based on a story by Cornell Woolrich and directed by future horror specialist William Castle



VOICE OF THE WHISTLER



A millionaire only has six months to live so he marries his nurse who does not love him. He promises to make her sole heir to his estate. After marrying her they move to a lighthouse where she finds herself filling in love after he makes a miraculous recovery. Things go fine till the man the woman jilted to marry the millionaire tries to kill the man.



MYSTERIOUS INTRUDER



Mysterious Intruder was the fifth entry in Columbia's B-picture series based on the radio anthology "The Whistler". Richard Dix, the leading man in all but one of the "Whistler" films, stars as duplicitous private eye Don Gale. Motivating the storyline are a pair of priceless Jenny Lind wax recordings, which are coveted by a Swedish millionaire. Someone is willing to kill to get his or her hands on the records, prompting Gale and the cops to conduct a citywide search for the killer. The film's resolution is surprising only to those who hadn't seen the previous "Whistler" films, but it still works.



SECRET OF THE WHISTLER



The Whistler, mysterious narrator of the radio series of the same name, "knows many things" for he "walks by night." This time the unseen whistler knows all about mentally disturbed artist Richard Dix, whose first wife died under mysterious circumstances. Wife Number Two (Leslie Brooks) begins to suspect that Dix's earlier spouse may have been murdered, and that the artist was the killer. In a tense finale, the second wife uses psychological warfare to turn the tables on the homicidal Dix.



THE 13TH HOUR



Dix, the trucking company owner, is pitted against time to discover who murdered a police officer rival of his. He must do so to clear his own name, as the murder was pinned on him.



THE POWER OF THE WHISTLER



Power of the Whistler once more stars Richard Dix as the tortured protagonist. This time, Dix is cast as an amnesiac named William Everett, who is given aid and comfort by pretty Jean Lang (Janis Carter). Assuming that Everett has been victimized by someone, Jean tries to help him regain his memory. This proves to be a major mistake, which Jean's sister Frances (Jeff Donnell) discovers to her horror. Though it was fascinating to see Richard Dix in an off-the-beaten-track role, Power of the Whistler isn't up to the standard set by the first two "Whistler" films: even so, the climax, staged in the loft of a deserted barn, is a beaut.



THE RETURN OF THE WHISTLER



This time around, hero Ted Nichols (Michael Duane) tries to ascertain the whereabouts of his wealthy fiancee Alice Barclay (Lenore Aubert). Finally locating the girl in a mental institution, Nichols discovers that she's been placed there at the behest of a man named John (James Cardwell), who claims to be her husband. Private eye Gaylord Travers (Richard Lane) suspects there's more to this than meets the eye-especially when all records pertaining to Alice's previous existence mysteriously vanish. Return of the Whistler was scripted by Cornell Woolrich, who was doing this sort of Alfred Hitchcock stuff long before he ever worked with Hitchcock himself.

DO NOT FOLD, SPINDLE OR MUTILATE - TV MOVIE - 1971 - HELEN HAYES - RARE DVD
Do Not Fold, Spindle, or Mutilate is a 1971 television movie directed by Ted Post, starring Helen Hayes, Mildred Natwick, Myrna Loy and Sylvia Sidney, adapted from a novel of the same name by Doris Miles Disney. This movie was the possible inspiration for the TV movie and series that followed, "The Snoop Sisters." This cast is even more formidable than the Snoop Sisters - instead of two elderly ladies, this has four. And what a group! Helen Hayes, Mildred Natwick, Sylvia Sidney, and Myrna Loy. Poor Vincent Edwards doesn't have a chance against them. The bored ladies decide to fill out a computer dating form, using an imaginary woman, of course, and wind up with a very eager Edwards.

Computer dating has come a long way, but alas, it's still pretty easy to attract a character like Edwards. The four women are adorable and it's worth it just to have a chance to watch them in action. Hayes and Natwick went on to play elderly detectives in "The Snoop Sisters."

When Kate arrives, however, Susan is nowhere in sight. That's because someone has murdered her and stuffed the body in a trunk in the basement. As a storm rages outside, Kate tries to figure out where her sister could have gone and places her own life in great danger...the killer is still on the premises! In her first post-Bewitched vehicle, Elizabeth Montgomery gives a brilliant dramatic performance. Merwin Gerard's teleplay is based on a short story by McKnight Malmar.

Gerard (creator of the ONE STEP BEYOND show) adds several clever ingredients that heighten the tension and suspense. If you like exciting suspenseful thrillers than this is one movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end. Another great performance well worth mentioning is that of Eileen Heckart who plays the eerie and suspicious housekeeper.

VIDEO QUALITY: 8 out of 10 / B+

ASPECT RATIO: 4:3 Fullscreen

REGION CODE: 0 Region All / Free DVD-R (playable worldwide)

FORMAT: NTSC

SYNOPSIS: This 1964 TV movie was directed by Don Siegel and is a remake of the 1947 Robert Montgomery picture Ride the Pink Horse, which was adapted from a Dorothy Hughes novel. Siegel's version is tight as a drum, very exciting, and set in New Orleans at Mardi Gras time rather than a Southwest whistle-stop. It is highly energetic and almost surreal in its use of color and some very fancy editing, fancy even for a theatrical film, and almost unheard of in a TV one, of which it is an early example. The handling of the material is masterful. Robert Culp is a fine hero and Edmond O'Brien a not altogether loathsome villain. The rest of the cast,--Vera Miles, J. Carrol Naish, Pat Buttram - are likewise superb. It's one of those movies that seems almost like a throwaway genre piece that is really an intricate and beautifully crafted piece of work. The musical score is credited to Benny Carter, but more noticeable are two partial performances by Stan Getz with Astrud Gilberto (1964 was the year of "The Girl from Ipanema"). Everything gels in this great gangster noir movie.

THE PRETENDER - 1947 - ALBERT DEKKER - RARE DVD
Albert Dekker plays a crooked investment agent who embezzles a large sum from an estate, hoping to cover his crime by marrying the estate's heiress (Catherine Craig). The girl is already engaged, so Dekker arranges to have the fiance killed. The hit man's only means of identifying the victim-to-be is his picture in the society columns. But the girl changes her mind and agrees to marry Dekker--meaning that it is his picture that will appear in the columns, thereby condemning him to death. Desperately trying to contact the hit man, Dekker discovers that the man is dead...but the assassin's successor is still at large. A cheap but tidy "hoist on his own petard" melodrama, THE PRETENDER was produced and directed by W. Lee Wilder, brother of the more famous (and frankly more talented) Billy Wilder.

A TALENT FOR MURDER - 1984 - ANGELA LANSBURY - LAURENCE OLIVIER - RARE DVD
A Talent For Murder (1984) Director: Alvin Rakoff Writers: Jerome Chodorov (play), Norman Panama (play) Stars: Angela Lansbury, Laurence Olivier, Hildegard Neil

After all his years of acting this was Laurence Olivier's drama debut for the BBC. He had done many acting roles for ITV and US television but it seems he somehow proved to be elusive for Auntie Beeb!

Canadian director Alvin Rakoff has previously worked with Olivier before but the star of this adaptation of this stage play whodunnit is Angela Lansbury who plays a famous crime author, a few months before she landed the lead role in Murder She Wrote.

The film is effectively a stage play set in a New York mansion where wheelchair bound crime novelist is devising plots, drinking too much, watching late night bad TV and getting doddery in old age. Olivier is her personal physician and maybe her one time lover. There is her vulnerable granddaughter (Pamela) who lives with her and there is an Indian housekeeper/driver/electronic expert/ex-con Rashi.

Things take a turn when Lansbury's son, daughter in law and Pamela' seemingly estranged husband arrive for her birthday party with plans to send her to a retirement home in Florida and carve her estate between them which includes priceless Monet's and Picasso's. Of course during the course of events there are twists and turns, chicanery and murder with Lansbury herself looking vulnerable as old age looking it has caught up with her.

The play only opens up when Olivier flies in from France as he is collected at the airport but apart from that its very much staged interiors with the then slightly heavily lit BBC lighting. Maybe this was a good thing as Olivier was the finest stage actor of his generation and you can see the subtle tics he uses in his nuanced performance. Its not Hamlet but even in his 70s, suffering from ill health he still lights up the screen.

The tour de force is actually Lansbury with a strident New York accent with tales of a promiscuous past with artists and bohemians. A journey that has taken her to become a skilled and successful writer but who now has to deal with a grasping family and a not too trustworthy housekeeper but is she more wily than she lets on?

There are plenty of suspects and potential red herrings as to the murder.

MIDNIGHT MYSTERY - 1930 - BETTY COMPSON - LOWELL SHERMAN - RARE DVD
This is a very entertaining early-sound film. From the opening credits, superimposed over a bobbing, ringing offshore buoy, the film maintains a feeling of mystery. The plot is very clever, and keeps you off-guard. And it has that other-worldly feeling that so many early talkies seem to have now. The technical limitations of that time actually add to movies like this, I think, as they give that distant feeling, as if you're looking into another universe. They say the past is a different country, and maybe that's right. It sure is fun peering into that different time and place.

SHERLOCK HOLMES - FATAL HOURS - 1931 - ARTHUR WONTNER - RARE DVD
Once in a while we discover a wonderful movie that was considered lost forever, and this is one of those films. The producers of this Sherlock Holmes mystery filmed it for release in 1931, and although it wasn't a big money production, it was very well done. But alas, they discovered that a larger, well financed version of a Homes mystery, The Speckled Band, was released on March 5, 1931, and their movie wasn't ready for release until July of 1931. The producers were convinced that after their audiences would not be very impressed with their version after seeing the fine job that Raymond Massey did in the movie released in March. So they sold the movie to a sucker (or so they thought) for 800 pounds. I'm not sure how well the movie did in Britain, but in the U.S. it was a spectacular hit, playing in theaters on Broadway for over a month straight. Reviewers were excited that this portrayal of Sherlock Holmes was as close to the author's image as any ever produced. It was terribly unusual for a British film to do so well in the U.S., and the lucky folks that bought and distributed the film did very well. Four more episodes with the same actor playing Holmes were made, The Missing Rembrandt (still considered lost), The Sign of Four, The Triumph of Sherlock Holmes and The Silver Blaze/Murder at the Baskervilles. This movie was thought to be lost forever until recently. The known time before now that the film was shown was in 1955. It was presented at a Sherlock Holmes Society reception for the star of the movie, Arthur Wontner. No one knows where that print is today. This copy is patched together from two incomplete versions, creating the only known complete copy of the famous film.

THE BLACK ABBOT - 1934 - JOHN STUART - RARE DVD
A wealthy British country gentleman has just purchased the building next to his estate that long ago was home to monks. Today there is a rumor that the place is haunted by the ghost of the Black Abbot, a monk gone bad who haunts the place every evening, walking the grounds in silence. The wealthy man has hired an architect to look the place over and bring it up to date, and the young architect has fallen in love with his daughter, the beautiful heiress Judy, and a wedding is planned. While the young heiress’ father, aunt, and friends are celebrating the engagement announcement, the gardener has snuck into the haunted building with Jane the maid to have a bit of fun. Suddenly a shriek pierces the night air and we discover that young maid Jane has seen the Black Abbot walking through Monk’s Hall and disappearing into the darkness. After a bit of debate about the reality of ghosts the men decide that they will quietly stand in Monk’s Hall until midnight and watch for the ghost of the Black Abbot. All is quiet until one of the men spots the shadow of a hooded monk walking outside the window and the four men take chase after the spooky figure. When the chaos of the chase is ended, one fellow has been knocked out cold, and the wealthy owner of the place has disappeared. An American detective who is a friend of one of the men is brought into the case to help the family in the event that Scotland Yard fails to find the missing man. The American suggests that it is probably a kidnapping for ransom, and the Scotland Yard Inspector replies that of course the American would suspect a ransom kidnapping. . . . . That sort of thing was begun in America, after all. To understand that comment, you need to know the state of the world in 1934 vis-à-vis kidnapping.

In 1927 Charles Lindbergh was the first person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in an airplane and he became an instant worldwide celebrity. In 1932 his young son was kidnapped and that crime was reported around the world. In the following years, fear of kidnapping was rampant among wealthy people and celebrities. In fact, it caused one American movie star couple to move from America to England in 1935 to protect their young children from American copy-cat kidnappers. Movie stars Ben Lyon and his wife, actress Bebe Lyon, moved to England in 1935, a year after this movie, and never looked back. They built a successful life in England with a famous British radio and then television situation comedy show “Life with the Lyons,” eventually even making two motion pictures, “Life with the Lyons” in 1954 and “The Lyons in Paris” in 1955. But now back to our mystery.

The family does indeed get a ransom note, and the search for the kidnapper is on, with suspicion falling on the young architect who has just swept the heiress off her feet. As night falls, strange events around Monk's Hall are once again consuming our attention and raising the hairs on the back of our necks. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

WATCHMEN - 2009 - CARLA GUGINO - DVD
It's 1985 in an alternate reality. The Watchmen - comprised of the Comedian, Dr. Manhattan, Nite Owl II, Ozymandias, Rorschach and Silk Spectre II - are a disparate band of masked superheroes, modeled after the Minutemen, who were masked superheroes of a generation earlier, most of who are dead or afflicted by the ravages of life. The Comedian belongs to both groups. Despite the activities of the Watchmen leading to the west winning the Vietnam War which in turn has kept Richard Nixon in the White House, Nixon has now outlawed masks, resulting in the Watchmen disbanding and going into retirement, most hiding their Watchmen past under their human identities. However, the Comedian, in his human persona of Eddie Blake, and Dr. Manhattan - former physicist Jon Osterman who obtained his superhero powers through a scientific accident which almost killed him - now work for the government. Dr. Manhattan's powers in particular have kept a watch over nuclear proliferation, as he is able to stop any nuclear attack. Regardless, the Cold War is at its height with recent Soviet posturing regarding nuclear bomb buildup. In her human persona of Laurie Jupiter, Silk Spectre II is Dr. Manhattan's assistant and lover, as much as they can be in Dr. Manhattan's now non-human state. Meanwhile, Ozymandias has come out to the world as wealthy genius Adrian Veidt, capitalizing on his Ozymandias identity to better the world, and Rorschach continues to work as a vigilante, although one wanted by the law despite he the reason that many criminals are behind bars. When Blake is murdered, Rorschach, as the only one still on the streets, believes the murderer is out to kill all the Watchmen, despite any number of people wanting to kill the Comedian for being a misogynist. Evidence points to it perhaps having something to do with an imminent attempt of nuclear annihilation. Rorschach has to convince his colleagues, who he has not seen since their superhero days, of the validity of his theory for them to come out of retirement, which is no easy task. If they do, which will require them to overcome external forces which seem to be conspiring against them, they will have to discover both who killed the Comedian and why before they befall the same fate as him and/or before the mastermind is able to exact his larger grand plan
