Amazon Says: Badlands announced the arrival of a major talent: Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven). His impressionistic take on the notorious Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate killing spree of the late 1950s uses a serial-killer narrative as a springboard for an oblique teenage romance, lovingly and idiosyncratically enacted by Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now) and Sissy Spacek (Carrie). The film also introduced many of the elements that would earn Malick his passionate following: the enigmatic approach to narrative and character, the unusual use of voice-over, the juxtaposition of human violence with natural beauty, the poetic investigation of American dreams and nightmares. This debut has spawned countless imitations, but none have equaled its strange sublimity. less...

Amazon Says: Only Joan (Phyllis Thaxter) knows the real reason she fainted at her engagement party and suddenly deserts her fiancé, Bob (Henry H. Daniels, Jr.). It's the command of the sinister, vengeful "Karen," a terrifying alternate personality raging inside Joan who will ultimately direct her to kill. Not even the psychiatrist (Edmund Gwenn) who discovers her fate can stop the tormenting voice that controls Joan's every move – forcing her to run, to hide, to plot and to murder. Writer/director Arch Oboler, who adapted his successful radio play into this shocking thriller, keeps the suspense taut and the action filled with unexpected twists as Joan's murder trial unfolds before a mesmerized courtroom.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply. less...

Guns, Girls and Gambling is an action-packed comedy where the laughs pile up faster than the body count. less...

Amazon Says: Newly re-mastered in HD from a 4K SCAN of the ORIGINAL NEGATIVE. John Ford's The Quiet Man celebrates one of Hollywood's most romantic and enduring epics. The first American feature to be filmed in Ireland's picturesque countryside. Ford richly imbued this masterpiece with his love of Ireland and its people. Sean Thornton (John Wayne) in an American boxer who swears off fighting after he accidentally kills an opponent in the ring. Returning to the Irish town of his youth, he purchases the home of his birth and finds happiness when he falls in love with the fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara). But her insistence that Sean conduct his courtship in a proper Irish manner with matchmaker Barry Fitzgerald along for the ride as "chaperone" is but one obstacle to their future happiness: the other is her brother (Victor McLaglen), who spitefully refuses to give his consent to their marriage, or to honor the tradition of paying a dowry to the husband. Sean could care less about dowries, he would've punched out the bullying McLaglen long ago if he hadn't sworn off fighting. But when Mary Kate accuses him of being a coward and walks out on him, Sean is finally ready to take matters into his own hands, the resulting fistfight erupts into the longest brawl ever filmed, followed by one of the most memorable reconciliations in movie history! The Quiet Man won a total of two Academy Awardsr including Best Director (Ford) and Best Cinematography and received five more nomination including Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (McLaglen). less...
