Savant's new reviews today are:

It Happened One Night
Blu-ray

  Frank Capra's best picture may be this effortlessly charming runaway heiress story, transposed to a bus. The difference is the winning personalities of Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, and the warmly human touch of Capra, who makes every detail an entertainment highlight. It's more than the famous hitchhiking scene or the Walls of Jericho or Gable's not wearing an undershirt -- this is one pre-Code show that is specifically of its time, yet hasn't dated a bit. With a feature-length docu on director Capra, in Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

Bunny Lake is Missing
Blu-ray

  Otto Preminger has fun in London with a top cast playing creepy eccentrics (Noel Coward, Martita Hunt) and working folk (Clive Revill, Anna Massey, Finlay Currie, Lucie Mannheim). They're fringe benefits in a creepy mystery about a missing or kidnapped child named Bunny Lake -- who may or may not exist. Carol Lynley is the distraught mother, Kier Dullea her impatient brother and, holding the movie together like super glue, Laurence Olivier as the policeman trying to cut through the fog. Preminger's direction is flawless and Olivier is terrific. And hey, it's got The Zombies singing on TV! In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.

Pocketful of Miracles
Blu-ray

  What? More Capra? Wait until I review the universally beloved Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, even my friends won't be speaking to me. Capra's final feature film is a creaking throwback that nevertheless has a lot of good things going for it -- funny jokes, great personalities and Capra's pro direction (although stories of its production sound like a film shoot in Hell). Glenn Ford is in fine form, Bette Davis is appropriately charming, Hope Lange is sassy and Peter Falk's sarcastic performance is a special treat in itself. The enormous cast includes enough vintage talent to make one think this is a lost Panavision and color comedy from 1936. The nostalgia works, the jokes mostly work and if one ignores the critics and doesn't mind overlong movies, it's still quite entertaining. In a sparking new transfer. In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.

Hello!

I've got a nice bit of news tonight, at least for readers for whom the image just above rings a bell. 3-D impresario Robert Furmanek has reported that his 3-D Film Archives will soon working on a disc release of the Canadian horror shocker of 1961, The Mask. It's the one with the spooky, bizarro 3-D sequences credited to famoust montage maker and design genius Slavko Vorkapich. That pseudo-Aztec horror mask was pretty unnerving when I was a kid, in photos from Famous Monsters; the first time I saw the film in college, the audience was so worked up that people screamed when the horror voice commanded, "PUT ON THE MASK !   PUT ON THE MASK !" Pal Todd Stribich had the old Laserdisc, with which I remember scaring my sons and daughter (well, not really) when their mother wasn't looking. All screenings I've seen used the old, less effective Anaglyph red-cyan system. Knowing that the 3-D Archives is involved, I hope it's safe to assume that the new restoration will be a major improvement.


Gary Teetzel points Monty Python fans to a lengthy, funny conversation between Eric Idle and John Cleese, viewable at Live Talks Los Angeles.


And if you'll pardon me, my Brit disc of Day the Earth Caught Fire just arrived... too late to make this review cut-off deadline but not so late for me to drop everything to watch it.

Savant's new reviews today are:

My Name is Pecos
and
Pecos Cleans Up
Blu-ray + DVD
Guest Review by Lee Broughton

  We welcome back UK correspondent Lee Broughton, who returns with a new vintage Italo western review, this time a domestic dual-format release -- Region zero BD and NTSC DVD. It's a pair of oaters by Maurizio Lucidi, starring Robert Woods, who looks a lot like the 'young' version of Henry Fonda in Once Upon a Time In the West, or at least he does in one of the stills. Lee has a good nose for these pictures, and we're happy to see the Wild East disc company move up to Blu-ray editions. So yes, it's a Dual-Format edition in Blu-ray and DVD.
11/22/14

Flaming Star
Blu-ray

  What, another western? This is Elvis Presley's claim to sagebrush fame, starring in a grim Don Siegel picture about a ranch family caught in the middle of violent times -- half the household is Anglo and the other half native American. John McIntyre is the patriarch, Dolores Del Rio his Indian wife, and Elvis the (gasp) 'half-breed' that both camps expect to fight on their side, or else. Elvis is great, even without a love interest of his own, and his catchy title tune is a winner. Also with Barbara Eden. The excellent new transfer is in Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
11/22/14

Sands of Iwo Jima
Blu-ray

  The U.S.M.C. had to love this valentine to the Corps. This is the John Wayne from our childhood, the tough Marine sergeant who knocks his recruits out cold when they don't smarten up as fast as he wants 'em to. These rough-tough fighters take everything the enemy can dish out on Tarawa and Iwo Jima, yet are perfect gentlemen with the ladies. Wayne's Sgt. Stryker does have some personal problems: when not getting drunk he's belting Forrest Tucker or depressed because John Agar is giving him grief. With Wally Cassell, Arthur Franz and a Martin Milner so young, he looks like he's in the sixth grade. Semper fi, but for cryin' out loud keep your head down on Iwo Jima. A terrific restored transfer, in Blu-ray from Olive Films.

Only Angels Have Wings
Blu-ray

  Howard Hawks man's-man adventure tale lauds a natural fraternity of air mail flyers plying a route through the treacherous Andes Mountains. "They can't send boys up in crates like that'" except that's another movie. No, in this one rugged (but fashionable) Cary Grant teases lovesick air field groupie Jean Arthur, while ex-flame Rita Hayworth (in her breakout role) slinks around the margins. With some genuinely classic scenes and strong acting from Richard Barthelmess, Thomas Mitchell and the usual Howard Hawks gang of daredevil professionals. And don't forget the sing-alongs! Includes a video extra with audio and special effects experts. Sony's restored transfer makes this show seem like a new movie. In Blu-ray from The TCM Vault Collection.

Hello!

I got a stack of notes asking what the picture was at the top of last Tuesday's column, the one with the cowboy looking at the orange sunset. So I've put the little word 'click' on this week's image to help out. But I did get to exchange emails with several new writers, so it's been a good idea after all. I wanna drop the click word though -- I like the idea of a mystery photo up top. Maybe I'm channeling one of Forry Ackerman's silly old guessing games, but without the bad puns.

I just got a look at the list of extras for the upcoming Twilight Time Yentl, and all of the featurettes I helped put together back in 2009 all seem to be there, which is nice. I'm also happy to see that the upcoming The Quatermass Xperiment Blu will carry the little featurettes I edited for MGM back in 2003 -- with what promises to be even more exciting input from other sources. I have to admit... as Xperiment comes out on December 2, I am watching my mailbox more closely than is normal. My original review for the DVD-R could use some improving, so I'm going to write something new this time.

In other news, VCI has announced a Blu-ray of Joseph Losey's The Prowler for February 15. They're also promising a restored disc of Horrors of the Black Museum sometime next year. That particular picture I did see new, around 1960 or '61 -- in a theater full of screaming children! I couldn't believe anybody could conceive of anything so sadistic, but at that time I hadn't seen much of anything of a disturbing nature. I hope VCI's restoration is good.

I've received and am poring over Arrow Video's Region B Blu box of Vincent Price in Six Gothic Tales. It's a different assortment than Shout! Factory's already-released Region A boxes, and includes one title not in either of them, Tales of Terror. They should have cheated and slipped The Premature Burial in there, then they'd have everything. I'm going to find out if the transfers are improved, and take a look at Arrow's exclusive extras... which have made many a domestic video fan go all-region.

And here's a last-minute reward-addition for people who've read all the way down here .... generously forwarded by Joe Dante. It's self explanatory and hilarious, from SBS: The Hunger Games Sketches: Battle Royale? What's Battle Royale? Enjoy.

Thanks for reading! --- Glenn Erickson


NEWEST FEATURE ARTICLES
Holiday in Spain
  Perhaps the strangest 70mm Road Show ever produced, this comedy adventure travelogue was originally titled Scent of a Mystery and released in Smell-O-Vision -- then re-cut and re-formatted for 3-panel Cinerama! It follows amateur secret agent Denholm Elliott across Spain to protect a damsel in distress. Jack Cardiff composes great shots for the large screen format. This exceedingly rare item has been rescued from vault oblivion and is presented in Smilebox to give the correct Cinerama feel (but with no panel join lines). Also starring Peter Lorre, Paul Lukas and Diana Dors. With plenty of extras. In Blu-ray from Redwind Productions.
11/18/14

Remember the Night
  Paramount/Universal's new contender for favorite Christmas movie adds a touch of larceny and urban angst to a powerful romance investigating the charm of small-town life. Petty thief Barbara Stanwyck is so hardboiled that her mother has disowned her, but instead of jail, she spends the holidays with the family of the Assistant D.A., Fred MacMurray. Director Mitchell Leisen's non-condescending view of bucolic life shows a genuine affection for people, and communicates the sudden attraction of traditional values for a woman hardened by the city. It's scripted by the great Preston Sturges! Now in Blu-ray from TCM Vault Collection.
11/18/14

When the Wind Blows
  One of the top anti-nuke movies, this British animated gem opts for a chilling understated approach, as adapted by Jimmy T. Murakami from the graphic novel by Raymond Briggs. A sweet, dim retired couple (voiced by John Mills and Judy Ashcroft) living in the English countryside finds themselves inadequate to deal with a catastrophic atomic attack. Surviving the initial blast, they meet the aftermath with the optimistic spirit of the Blitz and a certainty that 'those in charge' will come through for them. It's charming, funny and extremely effective Ban-the-Bomb stuff, with no annoying lectures. Yet the fear we feel for this innocent, loving couple puts a human face on the nukes issue. Filmed with innovative pre-CGI depth animation; music by Roger Waters. The disc also features an excellent second feature, a documentary about the interesting life of director-animator Murakami. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
11/18/14

L'avventura
  Michelangelo's epic of personal alienation is really lament for the death of romance in a materialist Italy moving toward prosperity. Monica Vitti and Gabrielle Ferzetti desperately search for a missing friend and feel guilty when romance causes their mission to lose steam. Are people capable of committing to anything but their immediate desires? Is spiritual emptiness a personal problem or a societal disease? Criterion's extras amount to a crash course in appreciating Italian art cinema of the '60s, of which this is a central tent pole. A new 4K scan, in Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
11/18/14

The Conformist
  Now in HD in Region A, Bernardo Bertolucci's dazzling investigation into the Fascist personality is still an intellectual challenge and visual dazzler. Jean-Louis Trintignant is the cipher who becomes an assassin to find his place in a new order; Dominique Sanda and Stefania Sandrelli are the women in his life. The Vittorio Storaro cinematography is really eye-opening, as are the '30s-era Italian designs. With an hourlong documentary by Aldo Aprá, In the Shade of The Conformist. In Blu-ray from Rarovideo (Kino Lorber).
11/15/14


A Life in Dirty Movies
  The 'Ingmar Bergman of 42nd Street,' adult filmmaker Joe Sarno turns out to be an artist trying to put human sexuality on film. We're not surprised to learn that his career when downhill when adult films went hardcore. Swedish director Wiktor Ericsson's funny and endearing docu observes Sarno in his twilight years; his remarkable story comes mostly from his spouse and partner Peggy, a perfect collaborator and protector. The maker of Sin in the Suburbs, Young Playthings and Abigail Leslie is Back in Town shapes up as a legit auteur. His 'dirty' movies of the '60s are more restrained than today's raunchy comedies. In DVD from Film Movement.
11/15/14

The Picture of Dorian Gray
  High-toned producer-director Albert Lewin found the perfect horror story for his temperament, Oscar Wilde's creepy parable about a man who takes a dare with a painting and a promise. Hurd Hatfield was typed forever for his role here, while George Sanders found his most unpleasantly appropriate characterization. Angela Lansbury is the standout as a victim of Dorian Gray's calculated cruelty, while Donna Reed wishes an angel's bell would ring to take her away to Bedford Falls. And then there's the gruesome painting itself, twice as creepy now that we see it in beautifully restored Technicolor. In Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
11/15/14

Stalingrad
  In a tall stack of Stalingrad movies this 1993 epic with star Thomas Kretschmann is a winner. The invading Germans meet their match at this key city, and yet another brutal invasion of Russia ends in almost total obliteration. Director Joseph Vilsmaier's epic (pre-CGI) production is graced with locations in Czechoslovakia and Finland; although touched with a bit of 'good German angst', the story is straightforward and honest. Good action and mood, and when the snow falls it looks cold. In Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video (UK).
