Noose for a Lady
10,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

A taut, complex whodunit with a brilliantly nerve-racking climax, Noose for a Lady marked the directorial debut of German-born writer, producer and director Wolf Rilla - best known for 1960's Village of the Damned, his masterly adaptation of John Wyndham's The Midwich Cuckoos. This rare and compelling feature, released in 1953, is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Simon Gale returns from Uganda to find his cousin, Margaret, has been convicted of poisoning her husband, and her execution is only seven days away. Refusing to believe in her guilt, Simon and Margaret's stepdaughter Jill set out to find the real killer, questioning everyone remotely connected with the dead man. As far as Simon is concerned, everyone is a suspect, and when the man who had promised him vital information is found poisoned, he believes he has solved the mystery...

Fuller At Fox, Five Films - Limited-Edition 5-D...
49,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Eureka Entertainment to release FULLER AT FOX, FIVE FILMS 1951-1957 (FIXED BAYONETS!, PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET, HELL AND HIGH WATER, HOUSE OF BAMBOO, FORTY GUNS), a collection of essential films from one of the greats of American cinema operating at his creative peak, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on Blu-ray. Available in a Limited-Edition (2000 copies, individually numbered) 5-disc hardbound boxed set featuring a 100-page perfect bound Collector’s Book on 28 October 2019. A towering figure of American cinema, Samuel Fuller was a master of the B-movie, a pulp maestro whose iconoclastic vision elevated the American genre film to new heights. After the major success of The Steel Helmet, Fuller was put under contract by Twentieth Century Fox after being impressed by Darryl F. Zanuck’s direct sales pitch (other studios offered Fuller money and tax shelters; Zanuck simply told him, “We make better movies.”). Over a six-year period, Fuller would produce some of the best work of his career, (and therefore, some of the best films in American cinema), an uncompromising series of masterpieces spanning multiple genres (the Western, the War film, film noir, the Crime-Thriller) that would establish the director as a true auteur, whose influence continues to be felt today. Collected here are five films from this fruitful period, all presented from stunning restorations. The impossibly tense Korean-War drama Fixed Bayonets! (1951); the outrageous and confrontational spy-thriller Pickup on South Street (1953); the Cold War submarine-actioner Hell and High Water (1954); the lushly photographed, cold-as-ice film noir House of Bamboo (1955); and the audacious Western with a feminist twist, Forty Guns (1957).

Abbott and Costello In The Foreign LegionIn 'The Foreign Legion' (1950) sees wrestling promoters Jonesy (Abbot) and Lou (Costello) arrive in Arabia looking for their absconded star attraction, Wee Willie Davis.

Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone KopsIn 'Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Cops' (1955) Bud and Lou revisit the golden days of silent film.

Abbott and Costello Go To MarsIn 'Abbott and Costello Go to Mars' (1953) Lester (Abbot) and Orville (Costello) are loading supplies onto a rocket ship when it accidentally takes off. Their first port of call is the New Orleans Mardi Gras - which the duo mistakenly believes to be Mars - where they are accosted by bank robber Mugsy (Horace McMahon) and forced to pilot their ship to the planet Venus. Once there, Lester and Orville find themselves the flavour of the month with the all-female population (men having been banned four centuries earlier), but just how long can this bizarre state of affairs be expected to last?

Detectives and the boys' frantically search for the real killer, and it's not the Swami. Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde'Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' (1953) is a comic spoof of the classic horror story.

The Collected Essays of Elizabeth Hardwick
18,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first-ever collection of essays from across Elizabeth Hardwick's illustrious writing career, including works not seen in print for decades. A New York Times Notable Book of 2017 Elizabeth Hardwick wrote during the golden age of the American literary essay. For Hardwick, the essay was an imaginative endeavor, a serious form, criticism worthy of the literature in question. In the essays collected here she covers civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s, describes places where she lived and locations she visited, and writes about the foundations of American literature-Melville, James, Wharton-and the changes in American fiction, though her reading is wide and international. She contemplates writers' lives-women writers, rebels, Americans abroad-and the literary afterlife of biographies, letters, and diaries. Selected and with an introduction by Darryl Pinckney, the Collected Essays gathers more than fifty essays for a fifty-year retrospective of Hardwick's work from 1953 to 2003. "For Hardwick," writes Pinckney, "the poetry and novels of America hold the nation's history." Here is an exhilarating chronicle of that history.

Rocky Fortune, Vol. 1: The Classic Radio Collec...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Here are 12 adventure-packed episodes of the radio drama Rocky Fortune. This 1953 radio adventure series stars Frank Sinatra as Rocco Fortunato, aka Rocky Fortune, a footloose and fancy-free young man of several talents. In constant need of employment, Rocky accepts odd jobs from the Gridley Employment Agency - jobs that typically lead him into situations where he tracks down criminals and ends up rescuing people in trouble - especially women. The job done, Rocky ultimately needs to find more work. In a wink to his own career, Sinatra infused his role with a witty, tongue-in-cheek quality. The one other recurring role was that of Hamilton J. Finger, a not very bright but solid and dependable police sergeant voiced by Barney Phillips. The show's creator, George Lefferts, was also one of its primary scriptwriters, along with Ernest Kinoy. The final episode of Rocky Fortune aired on March 30, 1954, less than a week after Sinatra won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Private Angelo Maggio in the 1953 film From Here to Eternity. Episodes included are: "Oyster Shucker at Fifty Fathoms", "Steven in a Rest Home", "The Rodeo Murder Mystery", "The Museum Murder", "The Football Fix", "The Catskills Cover-Up", "One Husband Too Many", "A Sitting Duck for Death", "Honor Among Thieves", "The Twice Murdered Man", "Psychological Murder", and "Rocket Racket". 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Sinatra, Barney Phillips, full cast. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/008504/bk_blak_008504_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
