    From Bryan Forbes, the legendary writer/director of Séance on a Wet Afternoon, The Wrong Box, The Stepford Wives and The Naked Face comes this gripping classic about an elderly woman who becomes increasingly ensnared by her own world of delusion and exploited by the very real world of morally corrupt people. Three-time Oscar nominee Dame Edith Evans received her final Oscar nomination (Best Actress in a Leading Role) for her performance as the eccentric Mrs. Ross, living alone in a meager apartment and hearing “whisperers” that plot against her. The whispering voices are right—but will anyone believe her? Gerry Turpin’s (Morgan: A Suitable Case of Treatment) stunning photography and John Barry’s (The Lion in Winter) haunting score are two of this powerful psychological drama’s best features.

    British Noir II (Five Film Collection)
    While the film noir movement may seem like a distinctly American phenomenon, British studios embarked on their own shadowy thrillers, laced with postwar cynicism. This five-film collection assembles some of the lesser-known Brit Noir titles from Romulus Studio, featuring such major talents as actors John Mills, Joan Collins, Valerie Hobson, Dennis Price and Sean Connery; and directors Lewis Gilbert, Gerald Thomas and Don Chaffey. British Noir Volume 2 includes The Interrupted Journey (1949), Cosh Boy (1953), Time is My Enemy (1954), Time Lock (1957) and The Vicious Circle (1957).

    THE INTERRUPTED JOURNEY 1949 B&W 77 MIN (1.33:1)
    After reconsidering eloping with another woman at the last minute, John North (Richard Todd) pulls the emergency break on the train he is traveling on and returns home to his wife (Valerie Hobson). Later on, after the train crashes and many of the passengers end up dying including his mistress, John becomes a suspect when the police discover that she had been murdered prior to the crash.

    COSH BOY (aka The Slasher) UK 1953 B&W 75 MIN (1.33:1)
    A gang of teenage delinquents, led by Roy (James Kenney), is earning money by mugging women on the streets of London. The police catch up with them and at their hearing, the judge sentences them to a youth club to reform their ways. The boys use the club as the base for their growing operation. Co-starring Joan Collins and directed by Lewis Gilbert (You Only Live Twice).

    TIME IS MY ENEMY UK 1954 B&W 61 MIN (1.33:1)
    Radley (Dennis Price) is a small-time crook, believed to be dead, who returns to his wife (Renée Asherson) after a long absence to find her remarried to a wealthy publisher. When Radley kills a jeweler in a robbery, he is blackmailed by his partner, so in turn Radley blackmails his wife. Directed by Don Chaffey (One Million Years B.C.).

    TIME LOCK UK 1957 B&W 70 MIN (1.33:1)
    A South Yorkshire bank employee’s young son is accidentally sealed in a bank vault with a 63-hour time lock. The vault cannot be opened manually and with less than ten hours of oxygen left inside the safe, it becomes a race to save the boy. Directed by Gerald Thomas (filmmaker behind thirty Carry On films and TV series). Featuring a young Sean Connery in one of his early roles.

    THE VICIOUS CIRCLE UK 1957 B&W 80 MIN (1.33:1)
    The great John Mills stars as Dr. Howard Latimer, who one day receives a telephone call apparently from his movie mogul friend, asking him to pick up film star Frieda Veldon at the airport and drive her to her hotel. A few days later, he arrives at his flat only to find Frieda’s dead body. The police are called in and now he must solve the mystery himself in order to prove his innocence. Co-starring Wilfrid Hyde-White, Derek Farr, Roland Culver, Mervyn Johns, Lionel Jeffries and directed by Gerald Thomas.

    Note: COSH BOY (aka THE SLASHER) is also being released on Blu-ray.

    B&W 117 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
    This classic British drama, with potent social commentary and a superb cast, portrays the story of a young man from a small mill town who claws his way to the top. Laurence Harvey (The Manchurian Candidate) is the “angry young man” who marries the daughter (Heather Sears, The Black Torment) of a factory boss (Donald Wolfit, Svengali) so he can reach the top of his profession, only to find love in an unhappily married older woman (the steamy Simone Signoret, Death in the Garden). A mature treatment of sexuality and class, Room at the Top is a landmark of the British New Wave and winner of two Academy Awards for Best Actress (Signoret) and Adapted Screenplay (Neil Paterson). A powerful adaptation of the novel by John Braine (Life at the Top) with skillful direction from Jack Clayton (Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Innocents). Beautifully shot by Freddie Francis (Sons and Lovers) and nominated for four more Oscars, including Best Picture (John and James Woolf), Best Director (Clayton), Best Actor (Harvey) and Best Supporting Actress (Hermione Baddeley, Mary Poppins).

    Co-writer/director Jean-Marie Poiré and co-writer/co-star Christian Clavier teamed up with John Hughes (Home Alone) to remake their 1993 French smash-hit Les Visiteurs. It’s 12th-century France and Count Thibault (Jean Reno, Léon: The Professional) finds his beautiful bride-to-be (Christina Applegate, The Sweetest Thing) done in by malevolent magic. So, he and his loyal servant Andre (Christian Clavier, Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar) request the help of a local wizard (Malcolm McDowell, Britannia Hospital) to right the wrong and bring his beloved back. But the wizardry goes awry and the pair are transported to 21st-century Chicago where they meet Thibault’s descendant Julia (Applegate) and her scheming fiancé. With their timeless values of honor and courage, they wreak havoc foiling diabolical plots in modern-day Chicago and try to find their way back home. Just Visiting is one very funny fish-out-of-water comedy, co-starring Tara Reid (National Lampoon’s Van Wilder) and Bridgette Wilson-Sampras (Billy Madison).

    I hope KLSC wouldn't mind answering an inquiry- Are Eyes in the Night (1942) and Time Table (1956) possible for Blu ray release ? I think they are both with MGM..
    Thanks ! :)

    From Preston Sturges, the legendary writer/director of Christmas in July, The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story and Unfaithfully Yours comes this classic comedy about an opportunist who turns corruption into a promising political career, but struggles to stay on top when he tries to go honest. Dan McGinty (Brian Donlevy, The Quatermass Xperiment) is a hungry hobo who wows the ballot-stuffers by voting 37 times in an election for Mayor. He immediately becomes the protégé of “The Boss” (Akim Tamiroff, After the Fox), who guides and schemes McGinty to Alderman, Mayor and ultimately Governor with a series of payoffs, kickbacks and bribes. In trouble, McGinty flees the country and winds up (or down) as a bartender in a seedy Central American dive where the tale has a gleeful surprise ending. The Great McGinty, a high-spirited comedy of rogues and rascals, won the 1941 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay (Sturges).

    From Preston Sturges, the acclaimed screenwriter of The Great McGinty, The Lady Eve and The Palm Beach Story, and William Wyler, the renowned director of The Best Years of Our Lives, The Big Country and Ben-Hur, comes this classic romantic comedy about a naïve girl just out of a cloistered orphanage who finds that being a “good fairy” to strangers makes life awfully complicated. When a brash movie theater owner needs usherettes for his Budapest cinema, he recruits young Luisa (Margaret Sullavan, The Shop Around the Corner) from a nearby orphanage. Encouraged by her kindly guardian (Beulah Bondi, It’s a Wonderful Life) to “spread her wings,” Luisa embarks on her quest to live the life of a fairy-tale angel. Quickly encountering the debonair wolves that roam the sidewalks of Hungary, Luisa randomly chooses a man to play the role of her husband: Dr. Max Sporum (Herbert Marshall, Murder!), a humble and idealistic lawyer. Even as Luisa’s simple ruse grows hopelessly complicated, the dream-eyed girl refuses to abandon the charade, determined to evade another suitor’s wily grasp, provide Max the prosperity he so deserves, and allow the opportunity for true love to enter his life. The stellar cast also includes Frank Morgan (The Wizard of Oz), Alan Hale (The Adventures of Robin Hood) and Cesar Romero (The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend).

    Didn't Preston Sturges write the screenplay for the Bob Hope film, "Never Say Die," ( 1938)?
