His own soda pop machine. Air conditioning. The finest cotton underwear. Someone else doing the work. That's M/Sgt. Maxwell Slaughter's (Jackie Gleason) game - and man, can he play it. Just ask Supply Sgt. Eustis Clay (Steve McQueen), who idolizes the big, shrewd, supremely self-confident older man. Maybe someday they can go into business together. In the meantime, how about a hot double date? So Clay fixes Slaughter up with a teenybopper named Bobby Jo (Tuesday Weld), a move that sets off a chain reaction of laughs and drama. Gleason and McQueen make a surprisingly engaging comedy team in this overlooked gem (co-scripted by Blake Edwards, who at this time was also embarking on The Pink Panther movie series) that showcases both stars' unique talents.

Real Sobriety is for that alcoholic or addict who is white knuckling it, rocking in thier seat, and sweating through their bed sheets with the anxiety of a new day in recovery. It features real people sharing remarkable stories of what it used to be like when they were out there, and what life is like today, clean, sober, productive and happy. And these are people you will relate to: sober bikers, prison chaplain, coffee shop manager, nurse, military veterans, waitresses, even a sober doctor; men and women who have walked the walk, and now, in Real Sobriety, they talk the talk.
Sam Elliott Western Collection (Rough Riders / You Know My Name / The Desperate Trail)

Brand: Warner Manufacturing
Sam Elliot Westerns Collection (DVD)Rough Riders In 1898 the US government, led by Theodore Roosevelt (Tom Berenger) back when he was still a young, ambitious Naval Secretary, intervenes on the side of the Cuban rebels in their struggle against Spanish rule. Always ready for action, Roosevelt leaves the confines of the sidelines and forms a volunteer cavalry regiment which later became infamously known as the "Rough Riders." Roosevelt's regiment brings together volunteers from all corners of the nation to fight against a far superior adversary in one of the most rousing victories in American history. You Know My Name In six months, the population of Cromwell, Oklahoma, has climbed from 500 to 10,000. Boom times have come to the oil-rich town. So has a new breed of criminal. You Know My Name is the fact-based story of Bill Tilghman, a lawman and former partner of Wyatt Earp confronted by an emerging era when outlaws run whiskey instead of cattle and are likely to tote a tommy gun as carry a six-gun. An ideally cast Sam Elliott plays Tilghman, whose life takes on a newfangled wrinkle of its own. Tilghman makes a moving picture of his Old West exploits; and the success of that silent film, The Passing of the Oklahoma Outlaws, spreads his reputation like a brushfire. But that reputation may mean nothing to a thug (Arliss Howard) who hides behind a badge. Desperate Trail Amiable con man Jack Cooper is on a westbound stagecoach, headed for the next batch of suckers who will mist...

After all, isn't the footage from back then nothing more than grainy black-and-white newsreel? And really, how much definition can be added to film that was shot more than 60 years ago? The answers: no, and quite a lot, actually. The quality of much of what is seen in the course of these 10 episodes (each around 45 minute...

Brad Pitt takes no prisoners in Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s high-octane WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds. As war rages in Europe, a Nazi-scalping squad of American soldiers, known to their enemy as â€œThe Basterds,â€ is on a daring mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Bursting with â€œaction, hair-trigger suspense and a machine-gun spray of killer dialogueâ€ (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Inglourious Basterds is â€œanother Tarantino masterpieceâ€ (Jake Hamilton, CBS-TV)!

In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survived Auschwitz wanders alone - feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards(r): Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

It's the University of Texas campus in Austin, but it seems like a war zone. Gunfire resounds from everywhere. People fall. Others scramble to flee or help the wounded. Meanwhile, from atop the school's landmark Tower, Charles Whitman fires off round after lethal round. The Deadly Tower is the powerful story of the 1966 event that was at the time the largest one-person murder spree in U.S. history. Kurt Russell, far removed from the lighthearted roles that then made up much of his career, portrays the murderous protagonist. The film's heroes are others: police officers (including Richard Yn?iguez as Officer Ramiro Martinez), rescue personnel and various brave civilians. They faced the worst kind of terror - one who was real.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

NTSC/Region 0. Director Keith Gordon based his excellent script for "A Midnight Clear" on the book by William Wharton, who had been seriously wounded in the Battle of the Bulge towards the end of WWII. He wrote of an American Intelligence team which came upon a team of young German soldiers, desperate to surrender to the Americans, in order to survive Germany's last offensive. He wrote of fear and suspicion, pain and loss, friendship and hope and a snow-ball fight. And of the agreement to save the lives of the Germans, which went horribly wrong. A haunting, disturbing war movie without much war, looking tenderly at those who go to kill and be killed, and gently painting a truth: There are no real victors; all are wounded by war's inherent, random cruelty. DVD info.: A special slip-case presentation imported from S. Korea, with Dolby 5.1 sound doing justice to Mark Isham's beautiful score, the movie is in the original English, with optional English and Korean subtitles, with the original 107 minutes
