    Funny, I also had and still have the soundtrack LP of The Oscar. I really enjoyed the score, however I have never seen the movie and look forward to the Kino Blu release.

    KOTCH
    KILLER FORCE (DVD) (I often go with DVD if the Blu lacks subtitles + if it saves me a buck)

    TARGET: HARRY
    BANK SHOT (DVD)

    As the dedicated cheerleader for this title, I’m so glad to see another copy winding up in a good home. It’s such a delightful, good natured film.

    I guess the "show biz" feel transcended genre. DC used to have a commercial classical music radio station, WGMS. It had a weekly program where it played a Broadway cast album. Although it featured theater and not movie music, it used the theme from THE OSCAR as its theme music.

    A television beauty pageant game show in the late 1960s on ABC (can't remember the name) used the music as its theme, too.

    I hope it sticks around until I place another order. I'm not familiar with it, but with all the good things I'm seeing here lately about it, I'll have to check it out.

    Kiefer Sutherland (TV’s 24, The Lost Boys) stars as a disturbed young killer who steals the identity of his latest victim to become deputy of a coastal town. But when the soon-to-be-promoted sheriff (Beau Bridges, Heart Like a Wheel, The Landlord) and his mistress (Camelia Kath, Terror on Tour) plot to kill her wealthy husband (Wayne Rogers, TV’s M*A*S*H, The Hot Touch) and frame the new deputy, their perfect crime takes some very unexpected turns. In a place where everybody has something to hide, are two lovers with a taste for homicide any match for a lone psychopath with a passion for vengeance? Joe Don Baker (Walking Tall, Joysticks) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Species) co-star in this gripping neo-noir thriller that pulses with sex, suspense and a murderous new twist directed by Rick King (Prayer of the Rollerboys, Point Break).

    • Brand New 2019 HD Master

    • Theatrical Trailer


    Color 93 Minutes 1.78:1 Rated R
    Neurotic New Yorker Bruce (Jeff Goldblum, The Fly, The Big Chill) is a manic bisexual who enjoys a good cry. Equally insecure Prudence (Julie Hagerty, Airplane!, Lost in America) is the uptight writer he meets through the personal ads. Bob (Christopher Guest, This is Spinal Tap) is Bruce's roommate and former lover who is insanely jealous of Prudence. Prudence is also sleeping with her lecherous therapist Stuart (Tom Conti, Reuben, Reuben, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence), while Bruce's therapist Charlotte (Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson, Women in Love, A Touch of Class, Hopscotch) may be crazier than any of her patients. Add an extremely overprotective mother (Geneviève Page, Grand Prix) and a very odd French restaurant, and you have a one-of-a-kind comedy about life, love and the happy endings that lay Beyond Therapy. Robert Altman, the legendary director of M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye and Nashville co-wrote and directed this dysfunctional romantic comedy based on a smash Broadway play by Christopher Durang.

    • Brand New 4K Restoration
    • NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Kat Ellinger
    • Optional English Subtitles
    • Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
    • Theatrical Trailer


    B&W 87 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
    A hard-boiled crime classic from Joseph Losey, the legendary director of The Servant, Accident, Eva, Secret Ceremony and Figures in a Landscape! Stanley Baker (Zulu, Robbery, Perfect Friday) stars as underworld kingpin Johnny Bannion, sprung from prison by his best friend Mike Carter (Sam Wanamaker, Raw Deal, The Sell-Out) to mastermind a daring racetrack heist. But when Johnny is betrayed and sent back to prison shortly after hiding the stolen loot, he must survive an ordeal of brutality at the hands of his fellow convicts and former accomplices. Co-starring Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange, The Birthday Party) and Nigel Green (Tobruk, The Skull) and beautifully shot in striking black-and-white by the great Robert Krasker (The Third Man, Brief Encounter), The Criminal (also known as The Concrete Jungle) is the grim and gritty film noir that was originally advertised as “The Toughest Picture Ever Made in Britain!”

    Accident (1967)
    • NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Kat Ellinger
    • Optional English Subtitles
    • Dual-Layered BD50 Disc

    Color 105 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
    From Joseph Losey, the legendary director of The Prowler, The Criminal, Modesty Blaise, Secret Ceremony and Figures in a Landscape, comes this classic melodrama with a screenplay by the great Harold Pinter (The Birthday Party, The Pumpkin Eater, The Homecoming). When one of his students is killed in a car accident, an Oxford professor (Dirk Bogarde, The Mind Benders) recounts the circumstances of their meeting. But as these turbulent memories unfold, they reveal a series of shocking relationships betrayed by adultery, obsession and self-destruction in which nothing is what it seems and everything has its cost. Accident was the second of three brilliant collaborations between filmmaker Losey and playwright Pinter; the first was the 1963 masterpiece The Servant and the third, the 1971 classic The Go-Between. Stanley Baker (Robbery), Michael York (Something for Everyone), Vivien Merchant (The Maids), Jacqueline Sassard (Les Biches), Delphine Seyrig (Last Year at Marienbad), Alexander Knox (Wilson) and Freddie Jones (Juggernaut) co-star in this stunning 1967 drama that Newsweek called “like a punch in the chest.” Based on a novel by Nicholas Mosley (The Assassination of Trotsky) and beautifully shot by Gerry Fisher (Man on Fire, The Offence).

    • Radio Spot
    • Optional English Subtitles

    Color 128 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated GP
    A classic adventure from Jules Verne, the legendary writer of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Around the World in Eighty Days, From the Earth to the Moon and The Mysterious Island! On the bleak, storm-tossed southern tip of South America, a lonely lighthouse guards the world’s most treacherous—and lucrative—shipping lane. But beyond the forces of nature, the lighthouse keepers must also face an even more formidable foe, and soon the turbulent waters become the bloody battleground of two men who fight for control of the cruel Cape Horn and for the pleasures of a helpless, shipwrecked beauty. Kirk Douglas (The Vikings) is Denton, the iron-willed lighthouse keeper who confronts the murderous pirate captain Kongre, played with delicious malevolence by Yul Brynner (Kings of the Sun) in one of his favorite roles. Samantha Eggar (Return from the Ashes) is Arabella, an English noblewoman imperiled by her beauty, desired by both men. The only hope to save the seas and their many travelers flickers in a single dim beacon, known to sailors as The Light at the Edge of the World! The stellar cast includes Fernando Rey (The French Connection), Renato Salvatori (Rocco and His Brothers), Massimo Ranieri (Chronicle of a Homicide) and Aldo Sambrell (Navajo Joe). Stunning cinematography by the great Henri Decaë (Le Samouraï, The Sicilian Clan).

    From Mike Nichols, the legendary director of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, Catch-22, Carnal Knowledge and Silkwood, comes this nostalgic favorite of those who grew up in the ’70s.

Acclaimed screenwriter Buck Henry (What’s Up, Doc?, Candy, The Owl and the Pussycat) adapted this fantasy-adventure from the popular novel by Robert Merle (Weekend at Dunkirk). Two of the film’s best features are the terrific cinematography by the great William A. Fraker (Bullitt, Rosemary’s Baby) and the Oscar-nominated score by Georges Delerue (Platoon, True Confessions). Trish Van Devere (Where’s Poppa?), Paul Sorvino (The Brink’s Job), John Dehner (Support Your Local Gunfighter), Phyllis Davis (TV’s Vega$), Elizabeth Wilson (9 to 5), Edward Herrmann (The Lost Boys) and Fritz Weaver (Nightkill) co-star in this one-of-a-kind sci-fi thriller.
