The fuse has been lit!
Screen legends Jeff Bridges (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Winter Kills) and Tommy Lee Jones (Blood Moon Rising, The Package) light a fuse under this action-packed tension-filled, edge-of-the-seat thriller that will hold you hostage for 120 electrifying minutes. Fueled with dynamic support by Lloyd Bridges (High Noon), Forest Whitaker (Jason’s Lyric), Reuben Santiago-Hudson (TV’s Castle) and Suzy Amis (The Usual Suspects), Blown Away is the action film you don't want to miss… when an explosion jolts Boston, bomb squad expert Jimmy Dove (Bridges) is thrust into the most harrowing work of his career. Evidence points to a bomber more dangerous and skilled than any he's ever faced - except one. The possibility that the terrorist is his former mentor (Jones) increases the stakes - and as his friends and family are unsuspectingly drawn into the action, Jimmy is forced to face not only his bitter enemy... but also his haunting past. Stylish and suspenseful direction by Stephen Hopkins, the director of Predator 2, Judgment Night and The Ghost and the Darkness.

THE NORTH STAR (1943) | ARMORED ATTACK (1957)
• 2022 HD Master for The North Star and 2013 HD Master for Armored Attack – From 4K Scans!
• NEW Audio Commentary for The North Star by Film and Arts Critic Adrian Martin
• NEW Audio Commentary for Armored Attack by Filmmaker/Historian Steve Mitchell and Combat Films: American Realism Author Steven Jay Rubin
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 106 Minutes | 76 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
June, 1941. When the school year ends, five friends from a small Ukrainian village decide to travel to Kiev. Their trip is cut short when German aircraft attack and their town falls under occupation. While many escape to the hills to form an anti-Nazi resistance group, a German military doctor, Otto von Harden (Erich von Stroheim, Five Graves to Cairo), begins to use the children for medical experiments and as sources of blood transfusions for wounded German soldiers. Directed by Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front), this story of valiant resistance stars Anne Baxter (Yellow Sky), Dana Andrews (Canyon Passage), Walter Brennan (Rio Bravo), Farley Granger (Rope), Dean Jagger (Pursued) and Walter Huston (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) as the Russian doctor who discovers the nefarious German plot. The North Star (1943) was re-edited and re-released in the midst of the Cold War as Armored Attack! (1957), excising references to the allied Russian military and adding an overtly anti-Communist narration track. This 2-Disc Blu-ray includes both Armored Attack! as well as the newly remastered and complete original theatrical cut of The North Star, which runs 30 minutes longer and preserves Milestone’s initial vision of the film before these politically motivated changes were made. This acclaimed original cut was nominated for 6 Academy Awards for the year 1943, including Best Cinematography (James Wong Howe), Music (Aaron Copland) and Original Screenplay (Lillian Hellman).

Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber) and Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) face off at 35,000 feet above sea level in the high-impact action-thriller Turbulence. A handful of last-minute Christmas Eve passengers are boarding a flight from New York to Los Angeles that will change their lives forever…if they survive. For flight attendant Teri Halloran (Holly), it’s just another plane ride from coast to coast—with only one difference. This time they’ll be carrying two very special passengers—an armed robber named Stubbs (Gleeson) and a seductive serial killer called Ryan Weaver (Liotta)—both handcuffed, shackled and escorted by top security agents. But when Stubbs slaughters one of his escorts and manages to break free, the balance of power suddenly changes hands. Now the cool and intelligent psychopath Ryan Weaver controls the plane, and the lives of every passenger and flight attendant on it. With the massive 747 heading into a severe storm, the danger from outside is almost as deadly as the danger within. The storm could kill you—but Weaver will make you suffer first. You’d better fasten your seatbelts—because this trip is going to be a killer ride! Directed by Robert Butler (Night of the Juggler) and featuring Hector Elizondo, Rachel Ticotin, Jeffrey DeMunn, Ben Cross and Catherine Hicks.

WHEN EIGHT BELLS TOLL (1971)
• Audio Commentary by Filmmaker/Historian Steve Mitchell and Screenwriter/Producer Cyrus Voris
• Theatrical Trailer
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase & Reversible Art
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 94 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated GP
From Alistair MacLean, the legendary author of The Guns of Navarone, Where Eagles Dare, Ice Station Zebra and The Satan Bug comes the thrilling adventure When Eight Bells Toll. Philip Calvert (Anthony Hopkins, Juggernaut, The Silence of the Lambs) is a secret service agent assigned to stop the ruthless pirating of millions of dollars of gold bullion in the Irish seas. His search takes him to small port in the Hebrides where numerous fishing boat, yachts and people have been mysteriously disappearing. A trail of deceit and subterfuge leads him to fabulously wealthy residents Sir Anthony Skouras (Jack Hawkins, Masquerade) and his beautiful wife, Charlotte (Nathalie Delon, Le Samouraï) who may hold the answers to the truth. Wonderfully directed by Etienne Périer (Zeppelin) with a rousing score by Angela Morley (Watership Down) and stunning widescreen cinematography by Arthur Ibbetson (Hopscotch). The stellar cast includes Robert Morley (Topkapi) and Ferdy Mayne (Count von Krolock of The Fearless Vampire Killers).

NOTE: This is the same transfer as our 2016 release, but encoded at a higher bit rate and on a dual-layered BD50 disc, giving the feature 30mbps or more. So, it should look better than the previous release that was on a BD25 single layered disc. We also added a brand new audio commentary, English subtitles, reversible art and a slipcase.

FILM NOIR: THE DARK SIDE OF CINEMA XIX (1950-1952)
• 2020-2022 HD Master by Paramount Pictures – From 4K Scans
• NEW Audio Commentary for DARK CITY by Author/Film Historian Alan K. Rode
• NEW Audio Commentary for NO MAN OF HER OWN by Film Historian Imogen Sara Smith
• NEW Audio Commentary for NO MAN OF HER OWN by Film Historian/Writer Julie Kirgo and Writer/Filmmaker Peter Hankoff
• Audio Commentary for BEWARE, MY LOVELY by Professor and Film Scholar Jason A. Ney
• Theatrical Trailers
• Optional English Subtitles

DARK CITY (1950) B&W 98 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
A Tense, Tough Drama of Underworld Violence and Revenge! After losing his company’s $5,000 cashier’s check in a crooked card game, a stranger in Chicago commits suicide. The other gamblers—including Danny Haley, played by steely screen legend Charlton Heston (Touch of Evil) in his Hollywood debut—worry about the dangers of cashing the check, but this soon becomes the least of their concerns when the head of the group is found hanged. Police Captain Garvey (Dean Jagger, Pursued) concludes the hanging to be a case of homicide and discovers that the stranger had a mentally deranged brother (Mike Mazurki, Murder, My Sweet) who is out for vengeance. Fran (Lizabeth Scott, Pitfall), a torch singer who is desperately in love with Danny, begs him to run away with her before it’s too late. This stunningly cynical morality tale also features the stars of TV’s Dragnet 1967, Jack Webb and Harry Morgan, as Danny’s gambling partners. Directed by the dynamic Willam Dieterle (Portrait of Jennie, Rope of Sand) and bathed in black-and-white by cinematographer Victor Milner (The General Died at Dawn).

NO MAN OF HER OWN (1950) B&W 98 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Every Door Closed Against Her…A Woman Faces the Age-Old Problem of Her Sex! The incandescent Barbara Stanwyck (Double Indemnity, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers) shines as a woman torn between a comfortable lie and the painful truth in this heart-wrenching noir classic. Helen Ferguson (Stanwyck), penniless, pregnant and dumped by her slimy boyfriend Steve (Lyle Bettger, Union Station), assumes the identity of a pregnant woman who was killed in a train crash. Eventually Helen’s sordid past catches up to her when Steve arrives demanding money to keep her true identity a secret from the man who loves her (John Lund, Night Has a Thousand Eyes). Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Daniel L. Fapp (The Big Clock, The Great Escape) and directed by Hollywood ace Mitchell Leisen (Death Takes a Holiday, Murder at the Vanities), this pitch-black masterpiece of harrowing melodrama was adapted from the book I Married a Dead Man by crime-writing king Cornell Woolrich (The Chase, Rear Window).

BEWARE, MY LOVELY (1952) B&W 77 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Trapped by a Man Beyond Control! Screen heavyweights Ida Lupino (Woman in Hiding) and Robert Ryan (Odds Against Tomorrow) square off in this stylish and atmospheric thriller. Wealthy widow Helen Gordon (Lupino) hires drifter Howard Wilton (Ryan) as a handyman to do chores around her rambling mansion. What she doesn’t know: Howard Wilton is insane. Insecure and paranoid, Wilton thinks everyone, including Helen, is against him. He suffers from memory lapses and extreme mood swings. She’s soon a prisoner in her own home after Wilton locks the doors and tears out the telephone. His mood swings from violence to complacency but after Helen gets a message to the police via a telephone repairman, she finds he is still in the house. Beware, My Lovely is a spine-chilling suspense story shot by cinematographer George E. Diskant (On Dangerous Ground), written by noir specialist Mel Dinelli (The Spiral Staircase, House by the River) and helmed by noted art director Harry Horner (The Heiress, The Hustler).

The new commentaries will get me to double dip these titles because I think Dark City might be the only one that has a new scan not used from its latest Blu-ray release in 2019. No Man of Her Own and Beware, My Lovely were released in 2022 and 2023.

Got to get this Noir XIX treasure chest, especially for Mitch Leisen's No Man of Her Own. Could get expensive as usually I buy these for the rest of what's left of Mitch's family. Dark City is also a must!
