Musical / 121 min / NR / Color
Director: David Swift
Starring: Robert Morse, Michele Lee, Rudy Vallee, Maureen Arthur
Synopsis: Big business means big laughs as Robert Morse (The Loved One) schemes
and scams his way to the top in this bold and bawdy musical that celebrates the
Great American Corporate Way and lampoons it at the same time. With musical supervision
by the legendary Nelson Riddle (Pal Joey), this tune-filled comic gem is a goldmine
of Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls) songs. Written, produced and directed by David
Swift (The Parent Trap) and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway smash,
this classic musical is bristling with humor, romance and song. The story charts
the meteoric rise of an ambitious window washer (Morse) who, with the help of a
simple guidebook, gets the job, gets the girl (Michele Lee, Knots Landing), gets
the raise and gets the attention of the Big Boss (Rudy Vallee, The Palm Beach Story)
himself - all by his second day at work. Now it's only a matter of hours before
he goes from zero to CEO!

lively and imaginative place you'll want to visit again and again. Two starry-eyed
schoolgirls spy, stalk and scheme their way into the life of a concert pianist (Sellers)
in this wacky piece of inspired lunacy. With half of New York - including a bevy
of befuddled cops and one man-hungry mom - in tow, these precocious teens do all
they can to keep tabs on their harried hero, turning The World Of Henry Orient entirely
upside down. The great George Roy Hill (The Sting, Slap Shot) directed this hilarious
comedy with screenplay by Nunnally Johnson (How to Marry a Millionaire, Night People)

John
Synopsis: Hollywood great James Cagney (The Gallant Hours) gives one of the richest,

boss' daughter (Pamela Tiffin, Come Fly with Me) while he's away on business. But
when he learns that she's gone and married a fierce young communist (Horst Buchholz,

must transform the unwilling beatnik into a suitable son-in-law or risk losing his
chance for advancement! Before you can say "one, two, three," his plans have spun
out of control and into an international incident that could infuriate the Russians,
the Germans and, worst of all, his own suspicious wife. Legendary director Billy
Wilder (Irma La Douce) directed and co-wrote this hilarious, fast-paced and lighthearted
comedy with his twelve-time writing partner I.A.L. Diamond (Avanti!).

Murders) and a myopic hitman (Eli Wallach, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) hot on

The Blue Racer(1972-74) (17 Cartoons)
Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: May 30, 2017
Blu-ray SRP: $29.95
DVD Street Date: $19.95
Animation / 109 min / NR / Color
Director: David H. DePatie, Friz Freleng
Starring: Larry D. Mann, Tom Holland
Synopsis: Unlike other high-velocity cartoon characters, nothing about DePatie-Freleng's
supersonic Blue Racer could be described as "streamlined." While surely speedy,
this lisping reptile is definitely not slick and ranks as more of an Everysnake
who loses more battles than he wins, most of them to a philosophical Japanese Beetle.
The DePatie-Freleng artists, while dubious ethnologists, still display their knack
for extended physical comedy and squash-and-stretch action scenes in this surprisingly
popular skein that bucked the contemporaneous trend toward limited animation. Never
consigned to any indigenous natural habitat, the Blue Racer vacations in Tokyo,
winters in Alaska, even emigrates to Ireland with a wanderlust echoed by the films'
producers, who outsourced one of the entries to Sydney, Australia and another to
Barcelona, Spain.

Art Leonardi and layout artist Martin Strudler. | Audio commentaries for selected

DVD Street Date: $19.95
Animation / 109 min / NR / Color
Director: David H. DePatie, Friz Freleng
Starring: Bob Holt, Larry D. Mann
Synopsis: Diminutive loudmouth Sheriff Hoot Kloot, astride his curmudgeonly, limping
horse Fester, wages an ongoing battle of witlessness against lunatic sheep rustler
Crazywolf. DePatie-Freleng's only series of cartoon Westerns, the Sheriff Hoot Kloot(TM)
films are characterized by especially strong direction and layout (by Hawley Pratt,
Gerry Chiniquy, Art Leonardi and others). Delighted with the chance to slip in clever
Wild West in-jokes, writer John Dunn further pits Kloot and crew against a veritable
rogues gallery of ridiculous outlaw villains, including Billy the Kidder, Calamitous
Jane, Butch Casualty, Wild Bill Hiccup, and the hanging Judge Soy Bean.
