• Brand New 2K Master

• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 126 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Screen greats Claudette Colbert (The Sign of the Cross), Paulette Goddard (The Cat and the Canary) and Veronica Lake (Sullivan’s Travels) star in this passionate film based on a true story about American Army nurses during World War II. Colbert shines as Lt. Janet Davidson, in charge of nine nurses serving in the Pacific. From the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the time they are shipped home, these extraordinary women tirelessly treat the wounded despite constant reminders of danger, romance and heartbreak. Made during wartime with the cooperation of the American Red Cross, the War Department and the Army Nurses Corp, this stirring tribute to the brave “Angels of Bataan” received Academy Award nominations for acting (Goddard), writing (Allan Scott, Blue Skies), cinematography (Charles Lang, A Farewell to Arms) and visual effects.

Bright Victory (1951)

• Brand New 2K Master
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian/Screenwriter Gary Gerani
• Trailers
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 97 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
From Mark Robson, the acclaimed director of The Bridges at Toko-Ri, The Harder They Fall, Peyton Place and Von Ryan Express, comes this searing drama starring Arthur Kennedy (Boomerang) in a brilliant, Oscar-nominated role. During World War II, Sergeant Larry Nevins (Kennedy) is blinded by enemy fire and lands in a military hospital with African-American soldier Joe Morgan (James Edwards, Home of the Brave) and attending nurse Judy Greene (Peggy Dow, Shakedown). Though he’s engaged to a young woman (Julie Adams, Bend of the River) back home, Larry finds himself falling for Judy. Meanwhile, his casual racism damages his friendship with Joe. On the long and painful road to recovery, Larry begins to realize how much he truly cares for Judy…and how wrong he was to judge others by their race. Will Geer (Broken Arrow), Nana Bryant (Harvey), Jim Backus (TV’s Gilligan’s Island), Richard Egan (The 300 Spartans), Murray Hamilton (Jaws) and Rock Hudson (The Tarnished Angels) add stellar support to this deeply moving film about one man’s redemption through courage, care and love.

Thanks, Kino-Lorber, for hiring Julie Kirgo as a commentator. You couldn't do better! She was terrific on the Twilight Time discs.
Actually, to add to my own quote, "terrific" doesn't quite cover Julie Kirgo's audio commentaries on the Twilight Time discs. They were invariably enthusiastic, informative, insightful, and always a pleasure to listen to. I'm so glad that Kino-Lorber is adding her to their list of commentators.

DREAMCHILD (1985)
• New HD Transfer by MGM
• NEW Audio commentary by Author/Film Historian Lee Gambin
• PETER MEDAK Remembers CORAL BROWNE – Audio Interview Moderated by Lee Gambin
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 94 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
The magnificent Ian Holm (The Homecoming, Alien) is renowned children’s author Lewis Carroll in this poignant fantasy-drama set in 1930s New York and populated by the fabulous special-effects creatures of Muppet master Jim Henson. To help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s birth, the real-life Alice in Wonderland—80-year-old Alice Hargreaves (Coral Browne, The Killing of Sister George)—is baffled by her enormous public popularity. As she comes to terms with America’s “Alice Mania,” she returns in her thoughts and dreams to her idyllic childhood, in the England of the mid-1800s. In a wondrous blend of fantasy and reality, she confronts the unsettling memories of her past—and the strangely repressed Reverend Dodgson (a.k.a. Lewis Carroll), whose powerful affection for Alice surfaced in his writing to create one of the world’s most beloved literary classics. Scripted by Dennis Potter (Gorky Park) and co-starring Peter Gallagher (Summer Lovers), Dreamchild is a delightfully unique and inspiring film for all ages.

with a cast like that, I'm not even upset that Dorothy won't be wearing a sarong in this picture!

One of the few Hollywood films, perhaps the only one, to deal with the current Spanish Civil War as it was raging. And yes, the bad guys were the Nationalists led by future dictator-for-life Franco.
