In this 35-minute companion documentary, director Havana Marking returns to Afghanistan to check in on Setara, examining the impact that her controversial turn on the show has had on her life and her country. Though Setara?s performance might be considered modest by Western standards, in Afghanistan, where strict rules govern women?s behavior, her actions have put her life in danger. She was publicly denounced by Muslim clerics and she has received death threats. Now, married and expecting her first baby, Setara must juggle her own safety with being a wife and mother, all the while putting her dreams of becoming a pop star on hold, at least for the moment.HBO

Danny Young (John Hodiak) launches a second front when he discovers the Red Cross nurse (Linda Christian) he once dated is engaged to fellow combat photographer Sgt. Mitch Turner (Stephen McNally). Their rivalry, however, is soon put aside when they volunteer to gather intelligence from deep behind enemy lines. Accompanied by a squad of Marines, Young and Turner infiltrate the north as they battle the Reds on a perilous mission from which they may never return. Featuring early appearances by Martin Milner, Jack Larson and Charles Bronson, Battle Zone was written by Steve Fisher, whose original story for Destination Tokyo earned him a 1943 Oscar® nomination. One of the few pulp writers to make a successful transition to the screen, Fisher was responsible for the classic noirs I Wake Up Screaming, Dead Reckoning and Lady in the Lake as well as episodes of Combat!, Cannon and dozens more.    Warner Bros.    John Hodiak, Stephen Mcnally, Martin Milner, Linda Christian

God's Gift to Women    1931    "If you want to live, you must follow the tranquil existence of an oyster," the eminent cardiologist warns his terrified patient. "No excitement and no women.

Hitler   1962  Richard Basehart delivers an incendiary performance as history's most notorious madman in this searing exposé of the private life of Adolf Hitler. A semi-factual account of the Füehrer's rise and fall, this rarely seen film follows Hitler's political career from the failed Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 to his suicide in a Berlin bunker at the end of WWII. Inspired by a 1959 interview with a woman who claimed to be his lover, Hitler mixes historical fact with the theory that impotence and an Oedipal complex fueled the Füehrer's psychotic quest for power. Costarring John Banner (Hogan's Heroes) and Cordula Trantow in a Golden Globe®-nominated* performance as the Füehrer's beloved niece Geli, Hitler was the final film directed by Stuart Heisler, whose career spawned hits in a wide range of genres including mystery (The Glass Key), comedy (Along Came Jones), musicals (Blue Skies) and drama (Storm Warning).    Warner Bros.    Richard Basehart, Maria Emo, John Banner

I Escaped From The Gestapo   1943  Ordered to bust convicted forger Torgut Lane (Dean Jagger) out of prison, Nazi agents deliver him to their Los Angeles hideout, where the spies' leader (John Carradine) forces him to produce counterfeit bills to undermine the Allied war effort. Failing at his attempts to make an escape, Lane engraves a message on one of the plates in a daring attempt to tip off the Feds and foil the saboteurs' plans. Although Mary Brian (The Virginian) played the female lead in I Escaped from the Gestapo, the part was originally intended for Frances Farmer. Arrested for assaulting a hairdresser during her first day of shooting, the troubled actress was committed to a sanitarium, her footage in a montage sequence marking Farmer's last screen appearance for 15 years.    Warner Bros.    Dean Jagger, John Carradine, Mary Brian

It's Tough to be Famous  1932 Out of the deep blue sea...into the turbulent fishbowl of fame. After heroically saving his crew from disaster aboard a navy submarine, Scotty McClenahan becomes an overnight celebrity. Lucrative job offers roll in. Banquets, newspapers and ticker-tape parades hail him. Advertisers want his endorsements. Passersby want his handshake. Meanwhile, a buzzsaw of a press agent keeps events snapping and spiraling. And Scotty, too private a man to enjoy the adoring glare of the public eye, feels he is "walking a tightrope on roller skates." The pell-mell pace and privacy intrusions are undermining the one thing he values most: his marriage. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (Gunga Din) portrays Scotty, Mary Brian (1931's The Front Page) is his wife, and Walter Catlett is a scheming PR man in this satiric comedy-drama whose story was likely inspired by the acclaim that greeted aviator Charles Lindbergh.    Warner Bros.    Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Mary Brian,  Walter Catlett
