The 4 Marx Brothers At Paramount 1929 - 1933 | Blu Ray | (26/06/2017)
from £33.89 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
The Marx Brothers Chico, Groucho, Harpo and Zeppo are one of the cornerstones of American comedy. Starting out in vaudeville, they conquered Broadway and the big screen in their own inimitable style, at once innovative, irreverent, anarchic, physical, musical, ludicrous and hilarious. With the advent of the ?talkies', the Brothers signed to Paramount Pictures and brought their stage act to cinema audience. They made five films in five years, all of which are collected here: The Cocoanuts (1929), Animal Crackers (1930), Monkey Business (1931), Horse Feathers (1932) and one of the greatest comedies of all time, Duck Soup (1933). The Paramount era represents the Marx Brothers at their absolute finest, retaining all of the energy and controlled chaos of their stage shows. Plots are unimportant it's the gags, set-pieces and one-liners that matter: Why a duck?, Hello, I Must Be Going, Hooray for Captain Spaulding, That's the bunk!, Horse Feathers' Swordfish scene and classic mirror sequence in Duck Soup.

Woody Allen: Six Films - 1971-1978 | Blu Ray | (03/10/2016)
from £42.19 | Saving you £57.80 (57.80%) | RRP
With these six films, Woody Allen made one of the most remarkable transitions ever seen in American cinema, from the slapstick buffoonery of the early, funny films to the Oscar-winning breakthrough of Annie Hall and the wholly serious Interiors. Along the way there's the Latin American revolutionary satire Bananas, genre-bending sex-education spoof Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex and hilarious time-travelling trips to a future America (Sleeper) and Napoleon-era Russia (Love and Death). All these early films star Allen himself, usually as a hapless victim of unfortunate events, aided by the likes of Diane Keaton (several times), John Carradine, Jessica Harper, Louise Lasser, Lynn Redgrave, Burt Reynolds, Gene Wilder and Daisy the sheep. But the the mature Woody Allen was first revealed in Annie Hall, a film firmly of its time and place (mid-1970s Manhattan) but also universal in its wry and witty examination of the foibles of human relationships. The claustrophobically Bergmanesque family drama Interiors once seemed like a startling change of direction, but now anticipates much of what came later. Collection includes: Bananas (1971) Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex *But Were Afraid to Ask (1972) Sleeper (1973) Love and Death (1975) Annie Hall (1977) Interiors (1978) Exclusive to this collection: Annie Hall and a 100-page hardback book featuring new and archive writing on all the films by Woody Allen, Michael Brooke, Johnny Mains, Kat Ellinger, John Leman Riley, Hannah Hamad and Brad Stevens.
Woody Allen: Six Films - 1979-1985 | Blu Ray | (12/12/2016)
from £43.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Arrow Academy's second Woody Allen collection covers 1979-85, during which he made many of his best-loved films. These begin with Manhattan, a sublime Gershwin-scored Panavision love-letter to his home city, and end with The Purple Rose of Cairo, a wistfully affectionate romance about the cinema's past that also doubles as a hilariously fantastical farce. In between there's the Felliniesque, fascinatingly self-analytical Stardust Memories; the bucolic romp A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (the first of thirteen films starring Mia Farrow); the technically and conceptually astonishing Zelig, in which a human chameleon bears witness to many of the 1920s and 30s cultural and political upheavals; and the perfectly-formed Broadway Danny Rose, a comedy about a theatrical agent who gets mixed up with the Mob. By now, Allen was working with a tightly-knit regular team: cinematographer Gordon Willis, designer Mel Bourne, editor Susan E. Morse and producer Robert Greenhut worked on nearly all of these, achieving an enviable consistency of style at a time when American cinema was moving away from the notion of the auteur director. Collection includes: ¢ Manhattan (1979) ¢ Stardust Memories (1980) ¢ A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982) ¢ Zelig (1983) ¢ Broadway Danny Rose (1984) ¢ The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) ¢ Exclusive to this collection: Manhattan and a hardback book featuring new and archive writing on all the films.
