    Sita Sings the Blues

    I must confess I am very late in joining the parade of fans that filmmaker Nina Paley has attracted with her charming animated film. I just purchased a DVD from her website, where you can also download the feature and even purchase Sita merchandise. I wanted to support the independent filmmaker...

    Wagon Master

    One of John Ford’s personal favorites among his films, Wagon Master (1950) is a film of modest ambition and enormous charm. It afforded the director an opportunity to showcase two of his “discoveries,” wrangler-turned-actor Ben Johnson and Harry Carey, Jr., the son of his old friend and colleague fr...

    Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

It incorporates every piece of Fats Waller footage extant (all of his Soundies plus his appearances in the feature films Hooray for Love, King of Burlesque, and Stormy Weathe...

    Cleopatra 75th Anniversary Edition

    Cecil B. DeMille’s incredibly lavish production of Cleopatra has never looked as good as it does on this beautiful DVD, mastered from the UCLA Film and Television Archive’s 35mm restoration. If you already have Universal’s Cecil B. DeMille Collection (released in 2006) you have...

    Pre-Code Hollywood Collection

    Cheers to Universal for releasing six rarely-seen Paramount titles of the 1930s that haven’t been on home video before, in exquisite transfers from the original negatives. In years past I’ve seen most of these in museum or archive showings, often in 16mm, and they’ve never looked so good.

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (diamond edition)

    I find as I get older I appreciate Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs more and more. Part of this is intellectual; I marvel at what Walt Disney and his team of artists accomplished, with no one to guide them into uncharted territory except Walt’s amazing instincts for...
