An iconic product of the Mexican Revolution, Redes (1935) combines the talents of a master composer, Silvestre Revueltas, and a master cinematographer, Paul Strand. Its marriage of music and the moving image attains heights of epic grandeur. The co-directors are Fred Zinnemann (en route to Hollywood) and Emilio Gomez Muriel. Because dialogue rarely overlaps music, it is possible to re-record Revueltas's galvanizing score and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural soundtrack. As the Redes concert suites by revueltas and Erich Kleiber omit much, the present DVD is the world premiere recording of Revueltas's full score, one of the highest achievements in the history of film music.

In Stop the World â€“ I Want to Get Off, all the world is Littlechapâ€™s stage â€“ and the beleaguered, wisecracking hero of this captivating â€œnew-styleâ€ musical by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley is your guide for the tuneful lifeâ€™s journey of an average bloke seeking love, wealth and career success. Shot on its original circus-ring set during a performance at the Lyric Hammersmith, the film offers a front-row seat for the charming mummery and incisive commentary of the London/Broadway hit. Tony Tanner (who followed original star Newley) makes a lithe, raffish Littlechap, whose learning curve for navigating lifeâ€™s curveballs is devilishly steep. Two-time Tony nominee Millicent Martin blithely incarnates the typically English/Russian/Japanese and all-American women who confound him. And the score by the future collaborators on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory â€“ including beloved standards â€œGonna Build a Mountain,â€ â€œOnce in a Lifetimeâ€ and â€œWhat Kind of Fool Am I?â€ â€“ is the show- and world-stopping centerpiece thatâ€™ll make you glad to get on.When sold by Amazon.com, this product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
