The Doctors - 30 Years Of Time Travel And Beyond [1995]
The Doctors - 30 Years Of Time Travel And Beyond [1995]

THE DOCTORS      30 YEARS OF TIME TRAVEL

The Doctors: 30 Years of Time Travel and Beyond has production values far removed from the exceptionally well presented official BBC Doctor Who titles. The only extra is 12 minutes of silent colour location filming footage of very variable quality, selections from which are included in the main programme. In the documentary itself the sound is perfectly acceptable mono. Unfortunately the picture appears to have been transferred from a damaged video master and there is an almost constant horizontal tearing across the centre of the screen, varying from slight but noticeable to so extreme it makes the feature all but unwatchable. The packaging incorrectly names the director as Bill Braggs and describes the programme as giving an insight into "the design of the Ice Warrior and Cybermen models" featured in the last series. It doesn't.--Gary S. Dalkin DVD Description Special Features Rare behind the scenes home movie footage taken from film adventures 'The Smugglers', 'The Abominable Snowman', The Demons' and the unfinished Tom Baker story 'Shada'. Unique collection of unpublished photographs spanning oll of the 7 doctors. An insight into the methods used in the design of the ice warrior and cybermen models, all featured in the last series. Interviews with senior production personnel such as director David Maloney, producer Philip Hinchcliffe and former BBC head of serials and drama Shaun Sutton.
Pot O' Gold [1941] - James Stewart
Pot O' Gold [1941] - James Stewart

James Stewart stars as James Hamilton Haskel, a small town guy who through his family works out of town at his uncleís health food business rather than in his dadís music shop, where he would prefer to be. You see, James Hamilton Haskel has his heart very much in tune with music but as luck would have it, whilst working for Uncle Charley, he meets the passionately musical McCorkle family and their beautiful daughter, Molly McCorkle (Paulette Goddard), with whom he falls in love. But the McCorkle and Haskel families have never seen eye to eye and when Molly finds out that James is a Haskel, something has to be done Ö and quickly.
The acting is brilliant with Horace Heidtís band taking a major role in the plot and even a song from Jimmy Stewart. A light-hearted musical comedy at its entertaining best.
My Favourite Brunette [1947] - Bob Hope
My Favourite Brunette [1947] - Bob Hope

29 May 2003 marked an important date in American comedy--the 100th birthday of legendary comedian Bob Hope. This anniversary collection celebrates Hope and his unmistakable brand of humour with a presentation of his 1947 film MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE, a spoof of the hardboiled detective genre. Hope plays a baby photographer who gets mixed up with gangsters after he pretends to be a private detective. Dorothy Lamour costars as the mysterious femme fatale, and horror legends Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney turn in hilariously villainous performances.

The Snows Of Kilimanjaro [1952] - Gregory Peck
The Snows Of Kilimanjaro [1952] - Gregory Peck

This lavish, big-budget blockbuster combined tales from Ernest Hemingway's life with Papa's already famous autobiographical novel of the same name. As Harry (Gregory Peck) lies wounded and delirious in an African campsite at the foot of the snow-covered slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, he recounts the story of his life in a series of flashbacks. Writing, women, and big-game hunting--these are the things that have defined and dominated his existence. In pursuit of all three, he has travelled the globe from the salons of Bohemian Paris to the battlefields of Spain to the plains of Africa. Now, in the shadow of the great mountain and his own approaching death from gangrene, he tries to make sense of his failures. Few Hemingway novels play as well onscreen as they do on paper, but under the direction of Henry King, star Peck turns in an inspired performance. Susan Hayward plays Harry's devoted beau, while Harry himself pines for the love he lost in Cynthia (Ava Gardner). The romantic, sentimental, qualities embedded in the fine script are driven home by Bernard Herrmann's brilliant score. Cinema managers actually feared that audiences would stay away from the film because they couldn't pronounce Kilimanjaro, but the film turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 1952.

Gung Ho [1943] - Robert Mitchum

GUNG HO! is the true story of a special battalion picked from the toughest men in the U.S Marines and given the dangerous mission of recapturing Japanese-held islands in the South Pacific during World War II.

Driller Killer - Abel Ferrara
Driller Killer - Abel Ferrara

Director Abel Ferrara's ('Bad Lieutenant') first major feature has an infamous reputation but is actually more of an art film than a straightforward blood-letter. Tortured and penniless artist Reno and his girlfriends Carol and Pamela hang out at their New York loft, enduring such problems as the phone bill, the rent and a rock band that's always practising downstairs. When it all becomes too much, Reno grabs his drill and runs through the city on all-night rampages. Eventually, Carol moves out, Reno's paintings don't sell, and things just get worse from there. Shot on gritty 16mm, 'The Driller Killer' has a distinctly 1970s New York underground feel - a low-rent artistic quality that makes it seem like a cross between 'Taxi Driver' and 'Andy Warhol's Trash' (with drilling). Low budget and somewhat amateurish; this film nevertheless benefits from some moody lighting and Ferrara's brave insight into the psyche. Reno's mental disintegration manages to be chillingly believable and a potent statement on the place of the artist in modern society. A surprise hit on the drive-in circuit; this was re-released in 1981 to capitalise on the teenage slasher movie boom (and the success of Ferrara's second film, MS. 45).
