It Might Get Loud [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Brand: Alfred Music Color: color
A documentary on the electric guitar from the point of view of three significant rock musicians: The Edge, Jimmy Page, and Jack White. Starring: Jimmy Page, The Edge, Jack White Three generations of rock guitarists come together for It Might Get Loud, a 2009 documentary directed by Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth). These are not just your garden-variety guitar gods: Jimmy Page, in his mid-'60s at the time of the film, founded Led Zeppelin, who dominated the 1970s following the breakup of the Beatles. As a member of U2, 48-year-old David Evans, better known as the Edge, created one of the most distinctive and influential sounds of the past quarter century. And 34-year-old Jack White (of the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and the Dead Weather) was described by one music publication as "the most significant rock 'n' roll figure of the past ten years." Guggenheim, who followed the three around for the better part of a year, takes us into their individual lives, past and present.

Story of Will Rogers
Manufacturer: WB Brand: Warner Manufacturing
With Will Rogers Jr. as his dad, Jane Wyman as Betty Rogers and heaps of homespun warmth, there's plenty to like about this biography of the "Poet Lariat" who never met a man he didn't like. From its lead performance to its storyline based on Betty's reminiscences to its fond direction by Michael Curtiz (a polo-playing buddy of Rogers), the movie has an authenticity befitting this most authentic of American heroes. Humorist, vaudevillian, film star, journalist, aviation buff, champion of the common man and more, Rogers crammed a lot of living into his 56 years. And The Story of Will Rogers, featuring Slim Pickens, Eddie Cantor, James Gleason, Mary Wickes and Jay Silverheels, turns it all into a lot of movie.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
