Quote: Mastered in HD from a 35mm dupe negative preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive - Film noir great Dick Powell plays an ex-vet living the American dream with a beautiful home, loving wife (Jane Wyatt), wonderful kid (Jimmy Hunt) and a great job as an insurance executive. But Powell like many returning servicemen exhibits a restlessness experienced by many veterans, his penchant for excitement leads him on an illicit affair with sexy bombshell (Lizabeth Scott) that leads to much more than a guilty conscience-a complicated web of intrigue, jealousy and murder. Considered by many as one of the greatest film noirs of all time, Pitfall features top-notch direction by the great André De Toth ( Hidden Fear) and a great performance by Raymond Burr as a corrupt private eye.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics November

Quote: Newly re-mastered in HD! The Hurricane is one of the most spectacular productions of the 1930s directed by the legendary John Ford ( The Searchers). An intolerant Governor (Raymond Massey) sets off a series of tragic events in an idyllic Pacific paradise, disrupting the peaceful lives of newlywed islanders Terangi (Jon Hall) and Marama (Dorothy Lamour). Terangi is wrongly imprisoned by racist officials and after many failed escape attempts, additional years are added to original his six month jail term. Terangi finally succeeds and returns to Marama after a long absence, but only to be confronted with one of the most savage natural disasters to ever hit the island. The devastating hurricane was created by special effects wizard James Basevi ( San Francisco), who used enormous wind machines along with elaborate network of pipes and holding tanks to destroy the native village he had built. Ford acknowledged that assistant director Stuart Heisler ( The Glass Key) was the driving force behind The Hurricane, and together they created a highly enjoyable film that stands as a landmark of Hollywood disaster films. The amazing cast includes Mary Astor, C. Aubrey Smith, Thomas Mitchell, John Carradine and Jerome Cowan.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics November

Quote: Newly re-mastered in HD! The third directing effort by the great John Cassavetes ( Husbands) is an engrossing, sobering expose of society's cruel prejudice toward mentally challenged children. Jean Hansen (Judy Garland) is an experienced city transplant who takes a job at a Down's syndrome institution and befriends Reuben, one of the boys afflicted with the disease. Reuben latches on to Jean, to the dismay of Dr. Matthew Clark (Burt Lancaster), the head of the institution. He feels that Jean's affection for Reuben will disturb the other children, prompting him to separate the pair. Cassavetes stunningly uses actual disabled children to convey the reality of these disabilities, gives the film a level of humanity and unflinching depth that resonates long after the final credits have rolled.
