The Sign of the Cross (1932)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Mark A. Vieira, co-author of Cecil B. DeMille
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian David Del Valle
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 126 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
From Cecil B. DeMille, the legendary director of Cleopatra, Reap the Wild Wind, Samson and Delilah and The Ten Commandments, comes this classic and turbulent biblical tale starring screen greats Fredric March (The Eagle and the Hawk), Claudette Colbert (Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife) and Charles Laughton (Witness for the Prosecution). Ancient Rome comes to life on a grand scale in the epic spectacular The Sign of the Cross. In the year 64 A.D., the corrupt and maniacal Emperor Nero Claudius Caesar (Laughton) torches the city so he can blame the ensuing destruction on the unsuspecting Christians. Meanwhile, Roman Prefect Marcus Superbus (March) falls for an innocent and beautiful Christian maiden, Mercia (Elissa Landi, The Count of Monte Cristo). When the seductive and wicked Empress Poppaea (Colbert) learns that she has a romantic rival for Marcus’s attentions, she conspires with Nero to send all Christians to a chilling death. Filled with some of the most outrageous and breathtaking scenes ever filmed, including the infamous “milk bath,” this pre-Code classic is a dynamic testament to DeMille’s visionary style. The great Karl Struss (Sunrise) received an Oscar nomination for his stunning cinematography.

Coming to DVD and Blu-ray August 18th from Kino Lorber!

Those Who Deserve to Die (2019)
Written and directed by Bret Wood

Two stories unfold in an idyllic Southern town. A series of gruesome murders occur, committed by a caped figure accompanied by a diabolical young girl (Alice Lewis).
At the same time, an injured war veteran (Joe Sykes) returns to attend college, and becomes emotionally attached to a social worker (Rachel Frawley), the daughter of a State Supreme Court Justice (Lynn Lowry). As their relationship intensifies, connections between the victims and the veteran emerge, and Margaret realizes she may have the power to both rescue Jonathan and halt the rising tide of death. Inspired by Thomas de Quincey’s novella The Avenger, Those Who Deserve to Die is an elegy to heroism and justice in a time of CGI superheroes and political hopelessness.

Special features:
*Deleted scenes
*"Malice of Alice: a Mother/Daughter Portrait"
*Optional English subtitles
*Promotional video
*Theatrical trailers

Got an email that the Memorial Day sale is extended and is now a June Swoon . I didn't see an end date in the email. Getting the rest of my purchases today from Memorial Day weekend.

They had on a FB announcement that it was to end June 8th. Has that changed?

This will make a great double feature, with Cleopatra!

Go for it! A good film with something to say about how breadwinners are often taken for granted. Fred MacMurray, a particular favorite of mine, is excellent.
I wonder if Kino might release more titles with Fred MacMurray. He made quite a lot of movies at Paramount during the 30s and 40s. Many have never been released on video. Any info on this?

Breezy (1973)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Howard S. Berger and Author/Screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 106 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated R
From Clint Eastwood, the legendary director of Play Misty for Me, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby and American Sniper, comes this romantic drama starring the great William Holden (Stalag 17) and Kay Lenz (The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday) as a mismatched pair who eventually find common ground. Breezy (Lenz) is a teen-aged hippy with a big heart. After taking a ride with the wrong sort of guy, she manages to escape and hides on a secluded property where stands the home of a middle-aged and disillusioned divorced man, Frank Harmon (Holden). Frank reluctantly takes Breezy in only to fall, unexpectedly, in love with her. Beautifully shot on location in Los Angeles by Frank Stanley (1941, The Eiger Sanction), Breezy features a lovely score by Michel Legrand (The Thomas Crown Affair) and a wonderful screenplay by Jo Heims (Play Misty for Me).

The Balcony (1963)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Tim Lucas
• NEW Interview with Actress Lee Grant
• Trailers
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 84 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
In a very special brothel known as the “Balcony,” the customers live out their wildest dreams, oblivious to a revolution that’s going on outside. Directed by the award-winning Joseph Strick (Tropic of Cancer) and based on acclaimed French avant-garde dramatist Jean Genet’s (The Maids) play, this star-studded film features Shelley Winters (He Ran All the Way) as the brothel’s madam and Peter Falk (The Brink’s Job) as her occasional lover, who enlists her help in halting the revolution. The leader of the rebels (a young Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek) falls for the madam’s executive assistant (Lee Grant, The Landlord), who longs to return to her former role as just “one of the girls.” Featuring Oscar-nominated cinematography by the great George J. Folsey (Forbidden Planet), this classic satire co-stars Ruby Dee (Jungle Fever), Peter Brocco (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Jeff Corey (Jennifer), Joyce Jameson (The Outlaw Josey Wales) and Kent Smith (The Spiral Staircase). With its insightfulness and delightfully fresh sense of humor, The Balcony continues to provide a unique view of the world’s ironies.

Coming to Blu-ray August 18th from Kino Classics and Something Weird!

"She Should'a Said 'NO'!" (1949) and The Devil's Sleep (1949)
Forbidden Fruit Volume 6

After producing the wildly successful Mom and Dad, Kroger Babb, the godfather of the exploitation film, scored another coup by securing the involvement of Hollywood starlet Lila Leeds, who had been arrested in a high-profile marijuana bust with Robert Mitchum. “She Should’a Said ‘NO’!” stars Leeds as a party girl recruited by a hard-boiled cop (Lyle Talbot) to take down the sinister dope-pusher (Alan
Baxter) responsible for the addiction and death of her brother (David Holt). Not to be outdone, producer George Weiss loaded his gymnasium pill-mill thriller The Devil’s Sleep with three celebrities: Mitchum’s brother John, Charlie Chaplin’s former teen bride Lita Grey, and Mr. America George Eiferman. But stealing the film, as always, was character actor Timothy Farrell, in the first of three appearnces as crime boss Umberto Scalli.

Special features:
*Audio commentary for "She Should'a Said 'NO'!" by film historian Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
*Trailer gallery

I don't know what year this was released in Superscope 235. That's cropping 1.37 to 2.35.

I own both of the German (Colosseo Film) DVD and Blu-ray releases of ULYSSES. The print runs 113 minutes (NTSC) and has an aspect of 1:1.55 . It also has an alternate (or expanded ending). It does not look cropped - certainly it is the best I have ever seen this classic epic. Some scenes were not found in English and are presented in Italian with English subtitles.
