1974 / Color / 103 Minutes / Anamorphic and 1080p (1.85:1) / Rated PG
Quote: Cinema's most rugged tough guy, Charles Bronson ( Breakheart Pass), threads his uncompromising coolness through a tight weave of car chases, shootouts and bare-knuckle brawling in this gritty, 'forceful action film' (L.A. Herald Examiner)! Bronson stars as Majestyk, an ex-con and Vietnam vet whose efforts to run a farm are thwarted by narrow-minded locals and corrupt cops. But when a Mafia hitman (Al Lettieri, The Getaway) destroys Majestyk's crop, the farmer's fuse is finally blown. With his rifle in hand and his girlfriend (Linda Cristal) at the wheel, he goes after the syndicate assassin. And from high-speed back-road chases to an explosive backwoods confrontation between mobster and maverick as they stalk each other: two-of-a-kind antagonists to the death. Directed by legendary director Richard Fleischer ( Compulsion) and written by the great Elmore Leonard ( Out of Sight). The wonderful supporting cast includes Linda Cristal, Lee Purcell, Paul Koslo and Taylor Lacher.

1965 / Color / 108 Minutes / Anamorphic and 1080p (1.66:1) / NR
Quote: It's tough being the cat's meow! A 'zany blend of slapstick gags and madcap comedy' (Cue), this 'hilarious' (Motion Picture Herald) romp, starring Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole and Woody Allen in his acting and screenwriting debut, is the 'wildest, wackiest' (Boxoffice) film to emerge from the swingin' '60s. Michael (O'Toole) is a mademoiselle magnet. His demented psychiatrist (Sellers) and sex-starved friend (Allen) would kill for this problem, but his would-be fiancé (Romy Schneider) might just kill him. Undergoing therapy, Michael tries to reform, but it won't be easy with sex kittens like Ursula Andress, Paula Prentiss and Capucine on his tail! Wonderfully directed by Clive Donner ( The Nude Bomb) and featuring the hit title song written by Burt Bacharach and performed by Tom Jones and featuring other Bacharach hits performed by Dionne Warwick and Manfred Mann.

Quote: The war is over. Nobody won. Only the inhabitants of Australia and the men of the U.S, submarine Sawfish have escaped the nuclear destruction and radiation.
