    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic movie
    I saw and enjoyed this classic George C. Scott when I was in the Navy and a motion picture operator on one of navy's submarines many years ago. I can recall being asked to run the destruct the town reel over and over by all hands. Great VHS movie but should be on DVD!

    The day after the Flim-Flam Man debuted in New York City in 1967, Bosley Crowther, the critic for the Times, panned the movie and Scott's acting in particular.In the decades since, the people have spoken!This is one of the best yarns ever put on film, in my opinion.A morality tale told with humor, poignance and great acting.Grab it.Watch it.Enjoy it! ...

    Great movie, Great service, Many thanks to all involved. Received in good condition and good time. Many thanks Patricia Ryan

    4-0 out of 5 stars Charming movie that deserves to be on DVD
    Come to the Stable is a charming movie that deserves to be on DVD.There is fine acting all around and Hollywood can relearn on how to depict religion in a positive light and tone from movies from the late 1940's.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A simple story about the POWER of faith
    No complicated story line: two nuns come to America , from France, to "answer a call".They come with nothing except belief in this "call".They have no plan and no money but...mysterious things begin to happen and 'the call" starts to take shape.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Is there a doctor in this movie?
    Yeah, lots of them. There's Frank Sinatra, Dr. Boone. A great pal & party animal. He's becoming a doctor because his daddy is a rich one. Not with my kid. There's Lee Marvin, Dr. Brundage, plannig his lucrative career. Patients are a necessary evil to be dealt with. Then there is another aspiring doctor, Lucas Marsh played by Robert Mitchum. He is the best of them plus he's really built. But he is poor & doesn't have enough money to finish med school. Along comes "plain jane" nurse Kristina, played by Olivia de Havilland. She lives with her parents, doesn't get out much & is turning into a spinster. But she has saved her$$$. Lucas romances her, she falls in love & they marry. His $$$ problems are solved & he has a wife he doesn't love. Lucas is a great doctor & I wouldn't mind being his patient. His people skills however, are lacking. He only has time in his life for medicine. As a result he alienates those around him, most notably his wife. He has impossibly high standards that no one can reach including himself. He is not god. Lots of familiar faces inclusing Harry Morgan playing Kris' idiot father, Brodrick Crawford as the pricipaled patho- logist &, several others.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Lush Ode to the Hippocratic Oath & True Love
    "Not as a Stranger" was an unexpected pleasure once I got past the shock of seeing Robert Mitchum, Frank Sinatra, and Lee Marvin (or his twin)as medical students staring down from tiered seating at a lecturing doctor.Oh, my, I thought, that is NOT a town in which to get sick!I was reeling from mis-casting shock for a number of minutes into the movie, but then Hollywood starting luring me into enjoyment of the performances of these actors cast against type.Bob Mitchum, the penniless son of a hopeless alcoholic (a very WELL-cast Lon Chaney, Jr., alas, in a sad role)wants to be a doctor more than any of his fellow colleagues, many of whom dream of big future salaries and big old 50's cars, in order to set the world right. This strikes me as a realistic characteristic of a child of an alcoholic, who's had chaos thrust upon him and wants to put it back in its place.The fact that Bob Mitchum doesn't look like any doctor most folks would imagine actually starts working for him--he does look Proletarian, he does look like someone who's had a rough time heretofore, and he definitely looks like someone with the physical strength to stand up to a doctor's rigorous career demands.Moreover, Frank Sinatra plays the indulged but basically good-hearted son of a rich man who is in med school to score money afterwards convincingly; he WAS a good actor and I came to enjoy his presence in the role.There is A LOT of information in the film about what a good doctor should know and how difficult the job is; done correctly, medical practice is a, don't laugh, noble calling and the film promotes this view.It also, however, acknowledges the presence of greed and mediocrity among medical men and hospital administrators, so there is a sensible balance between ideal and real.Now, as to the true love aspect, Olivia DeHaviland does a wonderful job as the Swedish-American nurse who loves and supports (and I do mean financially as well as emotionally)Bob Mitchum's young doctor.This is another one of those films in which the luminous, beautifully put-together Ms. DeHaviland is supposed to be, cough! cough!, plain--homely, declasse, etc.Yes, her platinum blonde hair is pulled tight enough to break and the make-up is laid on very sparingly, but for heavens sake why did Hollywood think this woman wasn't a raving beauty? I think perhaps the sincerity with which she played gentle women of character and responsibility is partly to blame for her being cast as un-glamorous.It apparently was as hard to reconcile "good" with "sexy" in olden Hollywood as it is now, sigh...Anyway, the nurse sincerely loves her doctor despite her growing awareness that he considers her more of a convenience than anything else, and for me the romantic tension was not so much in the doctor cheating with the horsy rich vavoom girl as in wondering if the fool man would ever realize what he has at home.Watch this beautifully shot, lush, 50's drama and find out.And enjoy all those character actors and actresses, such as Harry Morgan playing a flat-affected Swede with a wonderful poker face.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the first of the medical reality movies
    Although many of the scenes in this epic would be judged "hokey" by modern standards, "Not As a Stranger" was one of the first films to give viewers a factual look inside the medical profession and challenge the god-like nature of physicians.Mitchum plays a young man with many personal "issues," who tries to work them out by driving himself to become a stellar doctor.Sinatra plays an uncharacteristically "second banana" role as a stalwart physician-friend to Mitchum and DeHavilland.Broderick Crawford is the demanding and idealistic medical school professor who inspires Mitchum, Bickford is the long-suffering and self-sacrificing family doctor whose practice Mitchum joins, and DeHavilland and Grahame are the two women in his life.DeHavilland represents many doctors' wives through the decades, who were chosen as spouses because of the stability and respectability they offered... not because of love.The anguish this causes DeHavilland in the film is poignantly representative of many other real-life women in her position.Gloria Grahame is also another stereotype of the 1950s, playing a rich, bored, depressed widow who acts out on her pain with sexual promiscuity (which is only referenced in a veiled fashion in this movie).In the end, Mitchum fails himself and his friend and mentor, Bickford, by failing to save Bickford's life when he has a medical crisis of his own.The shattering effect this event has on Mitchum is emphasized by the fact that the only person he can turn to in his grief is his wife, DeHavilland, whom he does not love and who does not love him. ...

    Decades before the Hollywood film industry became famous for megabudget disaster and science fiction spectaculars, the studios of Southern California (and particularly Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) were renowned for a uniquely American (and nearly extinct) kind of picture known as The Musical. Indeed, when the prestigious British film magazine Read more

    Yes, I am one of those obnoxious friends who likes to sing along with the movie.And not only that, I've seen this one so many times, I can talk along with the dialogue, too!Yes, ladies and germs, this is Singin in the Rain!The fabulous movie that has brought you such unforgettable lines as:
    1-0 out of 5 stars Singing in the Rain -most excelent
    This movie entertains over and over again.The quality of the film on the dvd is great.The extra's on the dvd are well worth it.If you love Gene Kelly this is one you will really treasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing movie, even more amazing extras!
    This film, I think, can be considered to be the greatest musical of all time. I just LOOOVED it! Gene Kelly's magic feet dance to catchy Jazz-Age tunes, there are colorful musical numers, and superb comedy. What more could you ask for? And I'm glad it's finally out on a 2-disc special edition, with great special features. I loved the documentaries on disc 2, but what I REALLY LIKED about the extras were the musical clips from the movies where the songs originated! I didn't know about Freed/Brown songs then, I was suprised to find out that the movie was based on all of those songs from the early talkies. Those clips just changed my life. I bought most of the movies they were excerpted from. Now I know who Eleanor Powell is, I know who Robert Taylor is, and I'm totally hooked on their films! I've seen practically all of Eleanor Powell's movies! I mostly love about the extras is the "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'" clip. The first time I saw it, I was just dazed, and I was wondering who the heck Robert Taylor and June Knight were. I thought that musical number was the most beautiful and most escapist and most romantic number I'd ever seen in my life. Taylor and Knight make a LOVELY looking couple. Oh, and I've also seen 2 of June Knight's few films. So I bought Broadway Melody of 1936. Now, it's my favorite movie. If you don't see that you're missin' out big time. This movie, Singin' in the Rain started movie collecting which consists of over a 100 DVDs and rare VHSs. So I just want to say that Singin' in the Rain is one of my favorite movies of all time, and thank God for it, or else I'd never have liked musicals and old movies in the first place. P.S. The song "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin' really should've been a big production musical number in Singin' in the Rain. Bet it would've turned out wonderful, because that's such a great song, maybe even better than the title tune! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Family Dog - Family Favorite
    The first half of this is a less than memorable Christopher Lloyd episode of Amazing Stories, which says a lot about the writing since Christopher Lloyd could make a piece of toast funny. The second half of this is the Family Dog, which is not only memorable, but classic and under appreciated. This animated half hour has excellent writing, animation, and voice talent - including Annie Potts as the mother. The hilarity of home life is in your face and leaves you wanting more. My sisters, brother, even my mother quoted it for years after seeing it, "Oh my gawd they've taken the coffee maker!" My family was very grateful when years after seeing it, I bought each of them a copy through Amazon. They love it and watch it over and over- and what makes a classic of something beyond the audiences love of returning to the material? Even though the eventual animated series it spawned lacked the same writing punch, I would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of good clean "art imitating family life" humor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's perfect... would like it on DVD
    We first watched it about 18 years ago and it's brilliant, a real gem. We watch it every couple of years now and enjoy just as much. The VHS tape (which was a copy) is almost unwatchable... would love to get the DVD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great Nevil Shute novel made into a great movie
    Another Nevil Shute novel made into a movie. Shute's main character here is Mr Honey a "boffin"! There is something magical about the way James Stewart brings a character to life and his Mr. Honey is a charming, lovable, believable boffin. The cast, including Jack Hawkins, Glynis Johns, Marlene Dietrich,Kenneth Moore, Wilfrid Hyde-White and too many other to name here have worked together bringing the novel "No Highway" beautifully to the screen. This movie was made a long time ago (1951) in wonderful black & white, but it is not, or ever will be old! The subject of the story is still one of the main problems facing today's aircraft manufacturers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Captain, If You Don't Turn Around, This Plane Is Going To Crash Into The Sea!"
    1951's "No Highway In The Sky" stars James Stewart as "Theodore Honey", a scientist working on an unusual project -- attempting to prove that a new fleet of commercial airplanes is about to experience a catastrophic failure of its tail assembly. Is Mr. Honey just a crackpot, as most people around him seem to think? Or is he on to something? Watch this excellent black-and-white drama and see for yourself.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Another Stewart Dimension
    At the very summit of his skills, no role was apparently beyond James Stewart's powers and he branched out again in this intriguing movie which predicted with unnerving accuracy the coming disaster of the ill-fated British Comet jetliner.Stewart is a mathmetician on the trail of unpredictiable metal fatigue in commercial aircraft, exactly the failure that brought down several Comets and killed hundreds a couple years later.In this picture, Stewart manages to head off another calamity when his conscience is inflamed by three women: Janette Scott, Glynis Johns, and Marlene Dietrich.The film was based on a novel by Nevil Shute, and his prescience about the difficult transition from propeller to jet aircraft that lay ahead was pretty uncanny.Henry Koster had also directed Stewart in "Harvey" and does a marvelous job with a mostly British cast here as well. ...

    There is no way to summarize the plot of this film, except to say it's what you'd get if you dropped the Marx Brothers into Gypsy culture and stirred it all up. It's wild, crazy, and filled with music and dancing and unforgettable characters (played by real actors and actresses, not Hollywood ken-and-barbie dolls). You either like this kind of thing, or you don't. Astoundingly, some don't. Go figure! For me, it's a joy to watch.

    This is without a doubt one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.It is so intricate, human, and lovingly bizarre that I don't see how anyone could not absolutely love this movie.You have to bear with it for a bit in the beginning because there are so many characters and the plot is so complex that it takes a few scenes for you to get your bearings.Even during this time, though, the movie is absolutely hilarious.It's even more funny, though, once you realize what's going on.After that, just sit back and enjoy.Without equal. ...

    I don't know why Ed Sullivan didn't get more movie roles after his performance in The Singing Nun.Astonishing, simply astonishing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great music, fine cast.
    Based on a true story, The Singing Nun tells of a nun, Debbie Reynolds, who walks a fine line between joyous praise through music and vain self-glorification as her popular songs become commercially successful.The story's pretty simple as she rises to fame, with a profound twist that gives her a wake-up call.There's a terrific supporting cast, but the main appeal is the music, my favorite being the song "Dominique," which she performs on the Ed Sullivan show (apparently based on a true-life event, with Ed Sullivan appearing in the movie to recreate it).Fortunately this melody is used extensively in the films score making for very pleasant viewing.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sweet Movie....
    This movie is sweet and fun.That's all.It's not complicated, it's not a biography.It's a fictionalized account of a "Singing Nun". Debbie Reynolds has a beautiful voice.I loved this moviewhen I was little and still enjoy it! ... Read more

    This great comedy is about two modern-day hard-luck cowboys who are always getting into a bind, and when they do, their boss is always there to bail them out of their trouble ... and into his debt (hence the name "Rounders"). As a result, they always owe him money, and to pay him back, they have to do the jobs no one else will. Paticularly funny are the scenes with the two air-head women they encounter toward the end. A great movie!

    Editorial Review

    Andrei Konchalovsky's expansive television mini-series production of Homer's epic poem gets off to clumsy start as he tries to squeeze the Trojan War into a mere half hour, but once the arrogant but honorable Odysseus (strikingly played by Armand Assante) and his loyal crew begin their doomed voyage home, this film turns into a fantastical adventure. Integrating often-stunning special effects with inventive art design, Konchalovsky achieves a beautiful look on a limited budget as he follows the 10-year ordeal of Odysseus from his battles with the Cyclops and the magical Circe (Bernadette Peters) to his secret homecoming and his confrontation with the treacherous Eurymachus (Eric Roberts). Isabella Rossellini appears as his spiritual guide, the goddess Athena, with Greta Scacchi as Odysseus's faithful wife and Vanessa Williams as the seductive Calypso. The rest of the cast includes Geraldine Chaplin, Jeroen Krabbé, Christopher Lee, and Irene Papas. The production was shot on location in and around the Mediterranean, making for a lush, lovely visual experience. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Near Perfect Rendering of an Epic Tale
    This particular film adaptation of Homer's epic poem, staring Armand Assante as Odysseus, and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, from the studios of Hallmark Entertainment, is more than likely the best film rendition of this grand story.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good, faithful adaptation
    In the comentary, the director upfront admitts wishing to focus on the most entertaining parts of the Odyssey and this he does. I do not believe their is much to criticize (although there are some to be done) given the fact that even with scenes removed the runtime of the film is close to four hours. Therefore credit is due for fitting as much as they did.
    3-0 out of 5 stars A Wasted Voyage
    Although the book version of the Odyssey was capturing, the movie was rather disappointing because they left out quite a few scenes and changed the story a bit in some parts, which made it rather dull.

    Editorial Review

    Elia Kazan made his directorial debut with this adaptation of Betty Smith's novel about a bright, young girl growing up in turn-of-the-century Brooklyn, trying to rise above her tenement existence. Sensitively filmed by Kazan, and graced with wonderful performances by James Dunn as the wistful, alcoholic father and Dorothy McGuire as a strong-willed mother. Peggy Ann Garner won a special Oscar for her performance. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great if the Sing-Along Works For You
    I returned two of these discs thinking they were defective, before I realized that the sing-along feature just doesn't work on many DVD players.I was finally able to get it to work on my Humax Tivo DVD player/recorder, but when I had tried to play it on my Phillips and Toshiba machines, the songs would be skipped over completely during movie playback, and random lines of the songs were skipped during playback of specific sing-along tracks.Also, no lyrics would show up at all.I was very bummed since this was the only reason I purchased this new edition.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Grease is still the word
    All I have to say is finally!!! Finally they have a collecter's edition of Grease with bonus features. I have been waiting years for an edition like this. If you're a lover of Grease buy this DVD!
    4-0 out of 5 stars Fine new Rydell Edition... Remastered Video & Audio... Delightful Extras
    I won't go into praising the movie. It's already an American Classic and obviously anyone who's contemplating buying this will already love it. I felt guilty about double-dipping but the cute leather jacket was an irresistable gimmick. The following discusses mainly technical aspects of the new disc.

    I enjoyed the book back in school immeasurably but the movie blew chunks. I know directors take liberties with movies in their direction. But the book's message and the movie's finale were completely different. Two completely different versions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites
    I saw this movie in the theatre as a child soooo many years ago and loved it even though I had a hard time dealing with it (although at 11, I fell in love with one of the characters, Cotton).I remember it was on tv a few years later and again, I put this movie into my top ten favorites, but it wasn't until I was 40 that I heard the Carpenters song - Bless the Beasts and the Children on the radio, the title to this movie, and a flood of memories came back.I had to have this movie in my collection

    An excellent, excellent, excellent movie. Anthony Quinn should have won the Oscar. Anna Magnani is at her best. And Hardy Kruger underrated as always is the German officer who still has a humane aspect. A true delight of a film

    4-0 out of 5 stars Hidden Treasure
    This is a must see movie that is a true Anthony Quinn classic.And all the actors are great in this movie that is both hilarious and dramatic since it takes place during the Second World War.I, and many of my friends and family, would love to see this movie come on DVD. I could see this movie over and over again and never get tired of it.

    This buddy comedy teams up Jeff Goldblum and Cyndi Lauper as Manhattan-based psychics who meet at an NYU research center and are later hired by a shady entrepreneur (Peter Falk) to find his missing son in Ecuador. Once in South America, the duo learns that Falk has actually duped them into finding a lost gold treasure which his former minions failed to retrieve. Meanwhile, they're pursued by another gang seeking the treasure, one of whom is a psychic himself. Part action-adventure and part '80s Cheez Whiz, Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel's script to Read more

    It's been a long time since i've seen this movie, but it was cute and funny as well as fantastical.I never thought the Cyndi Lauper / Jeff Goldblum combo would have worked, but their cooky combo made a lovable eccentricity and bond between their characters as well as with Peter Falk.

    Yes, I know, to most this movie was not good. But, I'm a huge Cyndi Lauper fan, so I LOVED it and have to give it 5 stars. Don't you love how they left it open for a sequel? But I want to know why there is no DVD??? They put EVERY other movie I can think of on DVD, so why not this one? TEEN WITCH is on DVD so why isnt VIBES? and yes, the video for Hole in my Heart (all the way to china) SHOULD be on the DVD! It is a MUST! ... Read more

    For a couple of hours in 1990, David Lynch took over the network airwaves and subtly, subversively transformed American television forever. Amazingly, the TV series that followed this rich and strange feature-length pilot became an international phenomenon as people all over the world became obsessed by one question: Who killed Laura Palmer?

    Mindblowing...mezmerizing...incredible. This is the best show that has ever been on television.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Laura Palmer is dead . . . wrapped in plastic . . .
    I am taking a trip to the Seattle area this week and decided that I wanted to have lunch at the Great Northern Hotel, owned by Benjamin Horne (est. 1927).The hotel, which offers its guests a spectacular view of Whitetail Falls, is located slightly north of Twin Peaks, just below the base of Black Lake.The Great Northern is actually the Salish Lodge, perched on a hillside just above Snoqualmie Falls.To prepare myself for the experience, and to indoctrinate my oldest daughter into yet another cult television show, we watched the first season of "Twin Peaks" together starting with the two hour pilot episode that originally aired Sunday, April 8, 1990 on ABC.Fifteen years later, this pilot episode written by Mark Frost ("Hill Street Blues") and David Lynch ("Blue Velvet") still stands up.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Start here.
    This is pretty much what any fan of the show or David Lynch needs to start with. It's the original movie/pilot, and is a great piece of work. The story, the characters, and the whole northwest environment really make for an interesting and sometimes creepy watch. Many cool actors showed up in "Twin Peaks", among them Kyle McLachlan, Lara Flynn-Boyle, Sheryl Lee, Jack Nance, and the sexy Sherilyn Fenn. If you enjoy this, seek out the VHS collectors series, episodes 1-7. Or the DVD first season, which is also episodes 1-7, minus this pilot. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is How a Great Remake is Made
    In the original INVASION (1956), the alien pods descend on a small California town and overtake it.Everyone knows everyone.The slightest change in anyone's personality is noticable so the humans are tipped off a little early.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sci-fi and one of my favorite films
    This movie is outstanding. I love everything about it, from the script, direction and creepy atmosphere to the acting, casting and effects. I haven't seen a Philip Kaufman movie yet that has disappointed me, though this is my favorite one of his. Most people are familiar with the basic plot: Invaders from another planet create duplicates of existing people, apparently with the intent of taking over the entire planet. The concept is so frightening for several reasons: absolutely everyone is vulnerable and there is nothing that can be done to exempt oneself; it is unknown to the viewers who is a pod creature because the aliens do not have bodies of their own, rather are identical to an existing person; the existing person dies once the alien doppelganger is `born,' and the ending leaves open the distinct impression the entire planet will eventually be overtaken. This concept takes on new meaning in the digital age because so many among us have been victims of identity theft, so this seems to hit that much closer to home. We can also see the parallels between this concept and that of a conspiracy theory, where so many people are involved we consider ourselves powerless to stop it. When done well, as the 1978 film is, we are left with a feeling of dread and hopelessness. The 1956 original is decent, though the effects and acting are dated. The 1993 update is rather poorly made and unconvincing, even though it is worth seeing for the lovely Gabrielle Anwar. It is now too early to tell how good the 2007 version with Nicole Kidman will be, so see the 1978 version if you have not done so already!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Terrible DVD
    This is one of the great remakes -- a remake that actually doesn't just rehash the original. It takes the same premise in a different direction. And it has a 70s apocalyptic character -- edgy and just a little depressing. The original and this remake really reflect their times.
