    Popular cable fare during the 80's, Gloria arrives on Feb. 25, 2003, and in widescreen:

    She’s an ex-gun moll and showgirl suddenly forced to protect a kid whose parents have been rubbed out by the mob. Now the mob wants the kid dead too - but first they’ll have to deal with Gloria (Gena Rowlands in an Oscar®-nominated performance, Best Actress, 1980.) Director John Cassavetes, known for his unique approach to filmmaking, creates a powerful, tension-filled story. An accountant (Buck Henry) is in possession of a ledger which could put a number of mob bosses behind bars for a long time. Before he is killed, however, he manages to entrust the ledger and his son to a neighbor, Gloria, for protection. Gloria reluctantly takes the kid on the run while keeping the mob at bay, sometimes at the point of a gun. Finally, tired of running, she decides to confront them head on!

    Sweet! I managed to catch this in the cinema last year. It makes a nice companion piece with Luc Besson's Leon.

    Will it include the TV ad? One of my oldest off-air recordings from 1980 has one, with "Now playing" at the end.

    Great news, most of the available Cassavetes DVD's are travesties.

    Rowlands is a terrific actress, ranking with Davis, Stanwyck, Swanson, de Havilland. Anyone who appreciates magnetic and compelling screen performances should catch this one. Forget the Sharon Stone remake. Rowlands is leagues ahead of such pop culture "stars."
    Gloria directorially is also Cassavetes at his best. The news of this release is most welcome.
