    Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger create a phantasmagoric marriage of cinema and opera in this one of a kind take on a classic story. In Jacques Offenbach's fantasy opera The Tales of Hoffman a poet dreams of three women - a mechanical performing doll a bejeweled siren and the consumptive daughter of a famous composer - all of whom break his heard in different ways. Powell and Pressburger's feverishly romantic adaptation is a feast of music dance and visual effects an

    British film legends Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger revisit the world of music once more in their comedy adaptation of Johan Strauss's Die Fledermaus, updated to post-war Vienna. A scintillating, light-hearted musical, it features memorable performances from Michael Redgrave, Mel Ferrer, Anthony Quayle, Anton Walbrook and prima ballerina Ludmilla Tcherina as the titular Rosalinda. The film is presented here as a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its original CinemaScope aspect ratio. Vienna, 1955 - a city under occupation by the four Allied powers. Through the chaos Dr Falke moves gracefully - an elegant man-about-town and friend to the highest echelons of power. He is decidedly less graceful, however, when he is deposited by a friend in the lap of a giant Soviet statue, rather the worse for drink and dressed as a giant bat. Falke swears revenge...

    Jack Palance is in full swagger as ˜Scourge of God' Attila the Hun, who seeks to conquer the Roman Empire's 5th century power bases of Rome and Constantinople. Centurion Marcian (Jeff Chandler) is captured by Attila on his way to Constantinople to warn the Eastern Emperor Theodosius of an attack by the barbarian tribes. Attila, impressed by his enemy's wiliness, honesty and courage, is powerless to prevent his escape. The two men meet again at the court of Theodosius (George Dolenz), where they fall under the spell of the Emperor's scheming sister Pulcheria (Ludmilla Tchérina). At a feast for the barbarian kings, Theodosius and Attila strike a deal that Constantinople will not be sacked so Attila turns his attentions to Rome. As Attila prepares his assault, he is wracked by foreboding as he recalls a childhood vision of his death beneath the shadow of a cross. When he learns of a betrayal by his daughter Kubra (Rita Gam), it seems his fate is sealed. Douglas Sirk's first foray in CinemaScope is both lavish and savvy, with Parlance's Hun a fine balance of ferocity, vulnerability and doubt.
