Quote: Making contact was the beginning of the end... From the mind of legendary writer Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451, Something Wicked This Way Comes) springs what is perhaps his most epic vision. Capturing mankind's first venture into the colonization of another planet - and its tragic first contact with another species - The Martian Chronicles is a stunning achievement that will take you from the edge of your seat and to the stars. Earth is on the verge of extinction. To survive, mankind must find another place to live. And when three expeditions to Mars, headed by Col. John Wilder (Rock Hudson, Avalanche), find suitable conditions for relocations, humans pour in by the shipload, bringing the old evils of Earth with them. As Wilder begins to heed the lessons of the dying Martian civilization, can he save humanity from repeating its own doom? Michael Anderson (Logan's Run, Orca) directed this epic mini-series featuring Gayle Hunnicutt (Marlowe), Bernie Casey (Sharky's Machine), Darren McGavin (TV's The Night Stalker), Roddy McDowall (Fright Night), Bernadette Peters (The Jerk), Joyce Van Patten (The Falcon and the Snowman), Fritz Weaver (Black Sunday), Maria Schell (The Hanging Tree) and James Faulkner (TV's Game of Thrones).

Quote: A pretty princess... an evil sorcerer... a hero for all ages! Forget about beanstalks - this vivid fairy tale brilliantly re-imagines the beloved fable as a rugged adventure that delights with vigorous acting and excellent trick effects. Reuniting the director (Nathan Juran) and stars (Kerwin Mathews and Torin Thatcher) of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, this visual treat is a journey you'll want to take again and again. Farm boy Jack (Mathews) heroically rescues Princess Elaine (Judi Meredith) from sorcerer Pendragon (Thatcher) by slaying his bloodthirsty giant. But when Pendragon uses his evil powers to bewitch and imprison Elaine in his enchanted fortress, Jack must cross the ocean to brave dragons, two-headed ogres and an army of ghouls to save his lady love. This special edition includes both the original 94-minute cut and the re-envisioned 91-minute musical version of the classic.

Quote: Mystery, murder and passion from the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock (Lifeboat, Psycho). Screen legends Ingrid Bergman (Joan of Arc, Intermezzo) and Joseph Cotten (Portrait of Jennie, The Farmer's Daughter) star in Under Capricorn, a lush Technicolor drama. Cotten plays Sam Flusky, a native Briton banished to Australia for murder. Bergman is his wife, Henrietta, the disturbed sister of the man Flusky was convicted of killing. When a new governor (Cecil Parker, 23 Paces to Baker Street) arrives, he brings with him his cousin Adare (Michael Wilding, Stage Fright), an old friend of Henrietta's, who sets out to help her conquer her demons and return her life to normal. But is Henrietta going insane, or is someone trying to drive her mad? Is she merely an alcoholic, or is someone trying to poison her? No one but Hitchcock could handle these questions with such surefire tension, and the performances by the entire cast are excellent. A rich account of emotional self-sacrifice, Under Capricorn is that rare film which captures the humanity of its characters while keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. Beautifully shot by Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus).
