When cynical neophyte William Holden writes an appealing play about a 19-year-old woman with an overbearing mother, Rogers and her devoted producer/ex-husband Paul Douglas pressure him to rework it so Rogers can play the daughter as a 29-year-old (there is a sequence of older actresses auditioning for the mother part that’s as touching as it is funny). Powell becomes very cheery indeed, and more than a litle smitten, when he hooks a non-speaking mermaid (Ann Blyth, then 19) during a fishing trip. Get the week's best stories straight to your inbox.
The film is set in Leningrad in 1945 and tells the story of two young women who return home from the front. Morgan, who was graylisted and acted in only one other movie (as a DA in the very serious “Murder Inc.” in 1960) and guested as himself (he was a panelist on “To Tell the Truth” for years) in “It Happened to Jane,” is not quite as funny here as his mentor Fred Allen, who made the vastly more hilarious “It’s In the Bag” (1945, also with Vallee), another film in the same package that was previously released by Olive. “Mermaid” holds up better than another B of A repo comedy from 1948 that Olive has just put out on DVD and Blu-ray, Richard Fleischer’s feature directing debut, “So This is New York.” This was the screen debut and sole starring role for Henry Morgan, a sardonic radio comedian who is sometimes mistaken for character actor Harry Morgan (of TV’s “Mash”), who went by Henry early in his screen career and was billed for a time as “Harry (Henry) Morgan.”. Filmed toward the end of the conflict, this documentary shows some great details of Soviet operations. Also, he was chosen as Russia’s Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. More to the point, Milestone had just wrapped Warners’ “Edge of Darkness” (1943), a rousing adventure tale of brave Norwegians (led by Errol Flynn and Ann Sheridan) resisting fiendish Nazi occupiers.
The movie is inspired by Nobel Prize for Literature winner, Svetlana Alexievich’s book, War Does Not Have a Woman's Face, which is about the crucial contribution made by Soviet women toward victory in World War II. As a result, the wife finds a solution in numerous adulterous escapades, which help her to feel alive.
First he hides her in a bathtub full of bubbles, and then in the outdoor fish pond of the villa where he’s staying as screenwriter-producer Nunnally Johnson cooks up comic complications, all related in flashback to psychiatrist Art Baker. But an even bigger casting coup was Austrian film legend Erich Von Stroheim, who had just revived his World War I specialty of playing despicable Germans for Billy Wilder’s “Five Graves to Cairo,” in which he played Erwin Rommel. But it’s fun watching Powell in one of his last starring roles — hopefully Paramount will also license Powell’s other film in the Bank of America package, “The Senator Was Indiscreet,” for video release.
In 1944, Nikolay ended up in a concentration camp in Germany, where he was forced to teach Germans how to use the T-34 tank. Von Stroheim tells Huston he’s disgusted by what he has to do, but Huston won’t let him off the hook.

To direct, Goldwyn brought in Ukrainian-born director Lewis Milestone, an expert at war films whose “All Quiet on the Western Front” (1930) had won Best Picture and Best Director Oscars. At the time, the New York Times claimed “So This is New York” was so poorly received by critics that its only 1948 theatrical booking in the city was at a theater in Far Rockaway. There are two parallel stories: the historical one, and the musical one, which shows a rehearsal by the Tauride Orchestra in modern-day St. Petersburg. Goldwyn also enlisted one one of Hollywood’s greatest cinematographers, James Wong Howe, who received an Oscar nomination (one of a lifetime total of eight for Howe, who won twice) along with Hellman and famed composer Aaron Copland (the other Oscar nods were for production design, sound and special effects for a film with extremely high production values). Cohen Media Group will put out a Blu-ray upgrade for Fritz Lang’s World War II drama “Hangmen Also Die” (1943) starring Brian Donlevy and Walter Brennan working from a script co-written by Bertolt Brecht.

We've received your submission. This period is part of his childhood: half-romanticized and half-terrifying. Robert Altman’s “The Long Goodbye” (1973), starring Elliot Gould as Philip Marlowe, is coming sometime in November. Andrei Rublev (1966) Director Andrei Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev is a meditation on the role of the artist, set amid the brutalities of Russia’s medieval period. At the start of World War I, a young soldier, Alyosha, goes blind during one of the battles, but he decides to stay on the front line, helping as much as he could.
This film is probably the most provocative of the year in Russian cinema. The main reason for this success is that its release came in early January during the long winter break when people had a lot of free time on their hands. Apparently at the insistence of licensee Paramount Pictures, this historically important film being billed as an “original extended” extra with “Armored Attack!” (1957), a severely edited version that began circulating during the Cold War (and is apparently still covered by copyright) that is of considerable interest in its own right. Foreign film critics compared this film with early works by Andrey Tarkovsky and Elem Klimov. It plays outstanding music from ‘Concert No. Sept. 30 will see the release of Volume 4 of Olive’s “Betty Boop Collecton” containing 13 theatrical shorts by Max and Dave Flesicher released between 1932 and 1938. Privacy Notice This thriller is highly atmospheric with great camera work, and noir icon Robert Ryan is very good indeed as a manipulative millionaire who more than slightly resembles Howard Hughes. Top 10 Soviet Films You Should Watch During the Soviet regime, millions of dollars were invested in Russia ’s vast film industry. The movie tells the story of a crime boss, Anton Bykov, who is nicknamed the Bull. Olive continues rolling out a great number of films licensed from Paramount on DVD and Blu-ray — though “Forever Female” (1954) is the last of the batch that was actually released theatrically by the studio (others went out via United Artists, RKO and even MGM). Samuel Goldwyn, long one of Hollywood’s most successful independent producer of prestige pictures (with “Wuthering Heights” behind him and “The Best Years of Their Lives” looming in the future) commissioned a script from his prize writer, Oscar-nominated playwright Lillian Hellman (“The Little Foxes”), who had been working on an aborted war-themed documentary about the Soviet Union with the director of those two films, William Wyler — at least until Wyler left for military service. The Kino Classics line has slated a couple of Jonathan Demme films for Oct. 16: “Last Embrace” (1974) with Roy Scheider and Janet Margolin and “Married to the Mob” (1988) starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Matthew Modine and Alec Baldwin. (There are a few scratches blemishes here and there, but it’s still a vast improvement over anything I’ve seen before). Half an hour shorter than the original, the fascinating “Armored Attack!” adds new, stridently anti-communist opening narration that relocates the action to what it refers to as “Eastern Europe” — though sharp-eyed viewers will still notice the hammer-and-sickle Soviet insignia on Dana Andrews’ uniform (70 years later, digital effects were used to turn Chinese invaders into North Koreans in the remake of “Red Dawn” to make the film more palatable to the Chinese market) and hear a reference to Kiev.
