Monsieur Beaucaire (1946)
• Brand New 2K Master
• Bob Hope Trailers
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 93 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
The French court will never be the same when Bob Hope gets through with it! A barber in the court of King Louis XV, Monsieur Beaucaire (Hope, My Favorite Brunette), falls in love with a beautiful maid (Joan Caulfield, Larceny). When the king has had enough of the inept barber’s shenanigans, Beaucaire is led to the guillotine where he is about to lose his head! Luckily for him, the Duc de Chandre (Patric Knowles, The Bride Wore Boots) rescues Beaucaire from his inevitable fate, transporting him to the Spanish court. However, when he later poses as a nobleman, it seems he may have pushed his luck a little too far. Featuring lavish costumes and sets, this classic comedy directed by Hollywood great George Marshall (The Ghost Breakers) showcases Bob Hope at his finest. Melvin Frank (My Favorite Blonde) and Norman Panama (The Court Jester) adapted the screenplay from Booth Tarkington’s (The Magnificent Ambersons) novel, with Marjorie Reynolds (Holiday Inn), Cecil Kellaway (Unconquered), Joseph Schildkraut (The Shop Around the Corner), Reginald Owen (The Good Fairy), Constance Collier (Rope) and Hillary Brooke (Road to Utopia) rounding out the wonderful cast.

• Bob Hope Trailers
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 75 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Comedy legend Bob Hope (The Ghost Breakers, Road to Morocco) teams up with director Sidney Lanfield (My Favorite Blonde, The Lemon Drop Kid) for the rollicking comedy-thriller Where There’s Life. Hope stars as Michael Valentine, a timid New York radio personality who has his world turned upside down when he is named the long-lost heir to a far-away kingdom. He soon becomes the target of spies, kidnapping, death plots and two determined women: his ex-fiancée (Vera Marshe, The Crimson Key) and General Grimovitch (Signe Hasso, The House on 92nd Street), a beautiful blonde militant who’s trying to get him safely to his new country. Meanwhile, his ex’s Manhattan cop brothers and revolutionaries from his new “kingdom” are all out to get him! Featuring a perfect blend of comedy and action, this classic showcases Bob Hope in top form and co-stars William Bendix (Lifeboat), George Coulouris (Citizen Kane) and George Zucco (The Cat and the Canary).

The Great Moment (1944)
Great Without Glory: Introduction by Film Historian Constantine Nasr
Triumph Over Pain: A Celebration of Preston Sturges (with Preston Sturges' Son Tom Sturges, Acclaimed Filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich and Documentary Filmmaker Constantine Nasr)
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 81 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Legendary filmmaker Preston Sturges, the writer/director of The Great McGinty, Christmas in July, The Lady Eve and Sullivan’s Travels, turns to a more serious subject matter focusing on one of the great medical discoveries in modern history. The Great Moment takes inspiration from the true-life story of Dr. William Morton (Joel McCrea, Union Pacific, The Palm Beach Story), a dedicated dentist who discovers ether, otherwise known as anesthesia, in 1846. The doctor’s great contribution to humanity, the tribulations he later faced sharing his knowledge, and his reluctance to capitalize on his discovery, are meticulously laced with typical Preston Sturges humor and drama. The stellar cast includes Betty Field (The Shepherd of the Hills), Harry Carey (The Spoilers), William Demarest (Easy Living), Franklin Pangborn (The Bank Dick) and Porter Hall (Murder, He Says).

I never realized what an extensive filmography Bob Hope had. It’s impressive. I think I’ve seen maybe 10% of them.
I grew up watching Bob Hope movies on TV. I currently own a copy (or two or three) of every Hope film that's seen a release on DVD and am slowly upgrading them to BR as they're released.
