  • The Jazz Singer [1981] The Jazz Singer | DVD | (02/10/2006) from £9.59  |  Saving you £-5.00 (-29.40%)  |  RRP £16.99

    Back in 1927, The Jazz Singer entered the history books as the first true, sound-on-film talking picture, with Al Jolson uttering the immortal words, "You ain't heard nothing yet!" But even then it was a creakingly sentimental old yarn. By the time this second remake showed up in 1980 (there was a previous one in 1953) it looked as ludicrously dated as a chaperone in a strip club. Our young hero, played by pop singer Neil Diamond in a doomed bid for movie stardom, is the latest in a long line of Jewish cantors, but secretly moonlights with a Harlem soul group. When his strictly Orthodox father (Laurence Olivier, complete with painfully hammy "oya-veh" accent) finds out, the expected ructions follow. Though the lad makes it big in showbiz, it all means nothing while he's cut off from family and roots. But in the end--well, you can guess, can't you? Diamond comes across as likeable enough in a bland way, but unencumbered by acting talent, and the music business has never looked so squeaky clean--nary a trace of drugs, and precious little sex or rock 'n' roll. As for anything sounding remotely like jazz, forget it. This is one story that should have been left to slumber in the archives. --Philip Kemp

  • The Charge Of The Light Brigade [1968] The Charge Of The Light Brigade | DVD | (26/01/2009) from £17.99  |  Saving you £-6.66 (-41.70%)  |  RRP £15.99

    The Charge of the Light Brigade was an infamous battle in the Crimean War considered one of the greatest military blunders in history and immortalized in the poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson. The ill-conceived expedition to the Crimea was marked by an incredible lack of strategy and planning inadequate weapons camouflage food health care and communications. In the final battle all the soldiers had to protect them was their courage and blind faith. As Tennyson put it: Ours is not to question why/Ours is but to do and die. The film is a classic dissection of the pointlessness of war and the horrors inflicted on the common man who goes to fight in the name of his country. Directed by Tony Richardson and starring Trevor Howard Vanessa Redgrave (Atonement Howards End) and John Gielgud (Murder on the Orient Express Arthur The Charge of the Light Brigade was nominated for 6 BAFTAs.

  • The Odd Couple [1967] The Odd Couple | DVD | (02/09/2002) from £11.59  |  Saving you £-7.98 (-61.40%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Neil Simon's classic stage comedy made an effortless transition to the big screen in 1967, when The Odd Couple provided Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau with a tailor-made mid-career affirmation of their status as two of cinema's greatest funny men. Lemmon is Felix, manically obsessed with cleanliness and housekeeping, struggling to understand why his wife wants a divorce. Matthau is Oscar, his slovenly poker-playing buddy who invites him to take the spare room and lives to regret it as they rapidly and comically come to grief like an old, totally incompatible, married couple, revealing exactly why their respective wives have had enough. "I don't think two single men living alone in a big eight-room apartment should have a cleaner house than my mother", Matthau wails, trying to make sense of the disintegrating situation. The pair devour Simon's typically sharp and witty script in a frenzy of classic one-liners that allow Lemmon's trademark twitchy neurosis and Matthau's baleful cussedness to flourish. Great as they are, though, they are nearly eclipsed in the funniest scene of the film by Monica Evans and Carole Shelly as a couple of British expatriate sisters from the apartment upstairs. Carry On innuendo briefly meets Manhattan repartee and the screen crackles with brilliance. It's a comic masterclass. On the DVD: The Odd Couple on disc has no extras apart from the original cinema trailer, but the film, presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, is pristine, Neal Hefti's score providing that instantly identifiable flavour of sophisticated 1960s American comedy. --Piers Ford

  • Notorious [1946] Notorious | DVD | (30/10/2000) from £22.98  |  Saving you £-16.99 (-283.60%)  |  RRP £5.99

    One of Alfred Hitchcock's classics, this romantic thriller features a cast to die for: Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant and Claude Rains. Bergman plays the daughter of a disgraced father who is recruited by American agents to infiltrate a post-World War II spy ring in Brazil. Her control agent is Grant, who treats her with disdain while developing a deep romantic bond with her. Her assignment: to marry the suspected head of the ring (Rains) and get the goods on everyone involved. Danger, deceit, betrayal--and, yes, romance--all come together in a nearly perfect blend as the film builds to a terrific (and surprising) climax. Grant and Bergman rarely have been better. --Marshall Fine

    Laurence Olivier and Elisabeth Bergner star in this enchanting and highly acclaimed adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic comedy. Rosalind (Elisabeth Bergner) the daughter of an exiled Duke falls in love with Orlando (Laurence Olivier) the son of one of her father's courtiers. When Orlando continues to ignore her Rosalind decides the best way to be at his side is by disguising herself as a boy. Her deception works too well as Orlando would rather be in the boy's company than hers! How Rosalind works out her predicament is all part of the fun and farce. Filmed in England in 1936 when Olivier was still considered a 'promising young actor' rather than one of the finest actors ever to play Shakespeare As You Like It is in fact Olivier's first filmed Shakespearean performance and therefore a genuine milestone in film history.

Barrie of 'Peter Pan' fame.

  • Black Narcissus [1947] Black Narcissus | DVD | (26/09/2005) from £14.99  |  Saving you £-2.95 (-14.80%)  |  RRP £19.99

    When Bernardo Bertolucci went to the Himalayas to film Little Buddha, so the anecdote runs, he was disappointed by the scenery. Somehow, the real thing didn't quite live up to what he'd been led to expect by Powell and Pressburger's Black Narcissus. It's not hard to see why he felt let down. Their film is almost ridiculously gorgeous--a procession of saturated Technicolor, Expressionist angles, theatrical lighting and overwrought design. It has a good claim to being the high watermark of lushness in the British cinema (and, incidentally, every original foot of it was actually shot in Britain). No wonder it took the Oscar for colour cinematography (shot by Jack Cardiff) as well as for art direction and set decoration (created by Alfred Junge).Audiences loved it on its first release, but the critics were cooler: hadn't the story been upstaged by the baroque images? Well, probably, but that's not altogether a bad thing, since the plot--quite faithful to Rumer Godden's popular novel --isn't wholly free of corn. A group of five Anglican nuns, led by Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) establish a school and hospital in a former harem among the Himalayan peaks. The wind blows, the drums pound, the Old Gods stir, and one by one the celibate sisters succumb to unchaste thoughts, above all Sister Ruth (Kathleen Byron, terrific in the role), so consumed by erotic yearning for the one Englishman in sight (David Farraar) she puts on crimson lipstick, wears her wimple-free tresses like an early Goth and takes a downward turn. (Black Narcissus features the greatest scene involving a nun and a high place this side of Hitchcock's Vertigo and Jacques Rivette's La Religieuse.) Silly, to be sure, but also sublime at times and as curiously entertaining as it is picturesque. --Kevin Jackson

  • The Minotaur [2008] The Minotaur | DVD | (29/09/2008) from £25.45  |  Saving you £4.54 (15.10%)  |  RRP £29.99

  • My Favourite Brunette [1947] My Favourite Brunette | DVD | (08/12/2003) from £2.99  |  Saving you £-17.99 (-360.50%)  |  RRP £4.99

  • La Notte [Masters of Cinema] [1961] La Notte | DVD | (24/03/2008) from £22.65  |  Saving you £-2.66 (-13.30%)  |  RRP £19.99

    One of the masterworks of 1960s cinema La notte (The Night) marked yet another development in the continuous stylistic evolution of its director Michelangelo Antonioni - even as it solidified his reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. La notte is Antonioni's ""Twilight of the Gods "" but composed in cinematic terms. Examined from a crane-shot it's a sprawling study of Italy's upper middle-class; seen in close-up it's an x-ray of modern man's psychic desolation. Two of the giants of film-acting come together as a married couple living in crisis: Marcello Mastroianni (La dolce vita 8 1/2) and Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim Bay of Angels). He is a renowned author and ""public intellectual""; she is ""the wife."" Over the course of one day and the night into which it inevitably bleeds the pair will come to re-examine their emotional bonds and grapple with the question of whether love and communication are even possible in a world built out of profligate idylls and sexual hysteria. Photographed in rapturous black-and-white by the great Gianni di Venanzo (8 1/2 Giulietta degli spiriti) La notte presents the beauty of seduction then asks: ""When did this occur - this seduction of Beauty?"" The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Michelangelo Antonioni's haunted odyssey in a new digital restoration uncut for the first time ever on home video.
