Coming January 5th!
Nominated for 3 Oscars!

Captain Newman, M.D. (1963)
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Samm Deighan
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 126 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
From David Miller, the outstanding director of Sudden Fear, Midnight Lace, Lonely Are the Brave and Executive Action, comes this realistic look at life and love inside a stateside military hospital’s psychiatric ward during World War II, starring screen great Gregory Peck (Yellow Sky, The Big Country, On the Beach). This classic comedy-drama follows the affable Captain Newman (Peck) as he uses both humor and compassion to reach patients whose wartime injuries plague their minds instead of their bodies. Co-starring Tony Curtis (The Great Impostor), Angie Dickinson (The Art of Love), Eddie Albert (Attack), Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies), Dick Sargent (TV’s Bewitched) and Bobby Darin (Come September), this critically acclaimed film is just what the doctor ordered! Captain Newman, M.D. was nominated for three Oscars: Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Darin), Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium (Richard L. Breen, Phoebe Ephron, Henry Ephron) and Best Sound (Waldon O. Watson).

Coming January 5th!

The Secret War of Harry Frigg (1968)
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian/Filmmaker Daniel Kremer and Film Historian/Biographer Nat Segaloff
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 110 Minutes 2.35:1 Not Rated
From Jack Smight, the acclaimed director of Harper, Kaleidoscope, No Way to Treat a Lady and The Traveling Executioner, comes this wacky comedy starring screen legend Paul Newman (The Hustler, The Sting). The Secret War of Harry Frigg tells the story of a good-for-nothing goldbrick whose only talent is escaping from the Army stockade. Sent behind enemy lines to free five Allied generals held prisoner in an Italian villa, Harry Frigg (Newman), hardly the dedicated type, becomes sidetracked from his zany mission by a sexy Italian Contessa (Sylva Koscina, Hornets’ Nest, Lisa and the Devil). He finally uses his talent to escape, and his new rank of Major General to create havoc in this wild and brilliantly satirical tale of World War II. Beautifully shot in CinemaScope by the great Russell Metty (Spartacus) and featuring a hilarious supporting cast that includes Tom Bosley (Love with the Proper Stranger), Norman Fell (Charley Varrick) and Buck Henry (Old Boyfriends).

Nat Segaloff is a fantastic writer. He's the author of the incredible William Friedkin biography Hurricane Billy and he
extensively documented the production of the last film John Huston was partially responsible for, Mr. North

Oh I didn't know that! Back in the day I traded tapes with him. We had already made a couple of deals so of course I trusted him. He wanted some rare Finnish films, naturally they were unsubtitled but he said he didn't care. I think I sent him three tapes and never heard back.. I guess it wasn't that serious but I was young and didn't have that much money so I was pretty pissed off.
At that time he was preparing a book about Tod Slaughter, don't know if it ever got published.

Huston’s Freud: the Secret Passion coming soon. Not a very good movie, but I know there’s been some interest from others on the forum in it

Count me among the very fervent lovers of this one. Huston had an incredibly patchy 1960's, with this one being the very
best he made during that time. It feels more like a horror film than a biopic, and there are some amazing
images in it. Montgomery Clift was inspired casting despite the fact that he likely incurred a traumatic brain
injury from his car crash during the making of Raintree Country and Huston had a very hard time
getting him to keep track of his lines. Jerry Goldsmith's score was a game changer.

Kind of surprised that the Kino Shocktober Sale hasn't been mentioned around these parts. I was late in noticing it myself, it apparently started on the 15th, ends Nov 2.

The brand-new Lord Love a Duck blu is on sale for ~$10. Anyone looking for a wildly irreverent 60s satire starring Tuesday Weld should blindbuy immediately.

Thanks for the heads up!

I see Cohen Collection and Carlotta's few U.S. titles are now listed as well, though they're not necessarily bargains. (The Pialat collections are cheaper on Amazon.)

I should have held off on Five Graves to Cairo and Love Me Tonight, I bought them on Deep Discount during one of their many 15% off sales but they're even less here.

However, Highway Patrolman, Boy Meets Girl, Mauvais Sang, Je t'aime je t'aime (despite the shitty color - it's not getting a correction anytime soon so I gave in), Film Socialisme, Goodbye to Language (for some odd reason the two-disc Blu-Ray edition is cheaper than the DVD), and We Won't Grow Old Together are all bargains and I don't think you'll find them cheaper anywhere else anytime soon.

I am this French guy. Please can you develop and tell me precisely which VHS I would have stolen from you ? For decades I swapped magazines or VHS, then DVDs, with a lot of correspondents and practically never had any problems - except some parcels lost in the mail. This happens also with orders from another country. Did you write me about these "stolen" tapes ?

Here's the link to those sale titles which are OOP and thus in limited supply. If there's something you want from this lot, you should grab it, as I imagine we'll see more and more titles disappearing since people are adding movies to their larger Spooky sale (or whatever they're calling it)
