This cornerstone of 1970s American moviemaking from Robert Altman (Short Cuts) is a panoramic view of the countryâ€™s political and entertainment landscapes, set in the nationâ€™s music capital. Nashville weaves the stories of twenty-four charactersâ€”from country star to wannabe to reporter to waitressâ€”into a cinematic tapestry that is equal parts comedy, tragedy, and musical. Many members of the astonishing cast wrote and performed their own songs live on location, which lends another layer to the filmâ€™s quirky authenticity. Altmanâ€™s ability to get to the heart of American life via its eccentric byways was never put to better use than in this grand, rollicking triumph, which barrels forward to an unforgettable conclusion.

Melvin Hoover is a bumbler (except when he's dancing on skates), a workaday go-fer for Look magazine (except when he fakes being a big-time photog) and in love (without exception) with Broadway chorine Judy LeRoy. Melvin convinces Judy he can send her star aloft by putting her on the cover of Look. Now he has to make it happen! Singin' in the Rain's Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor dazzle again like July 4 sparklers in I Love Melvin. Highlights include glorious Manhattan locales, Debbie portraying the tossed-about football in a gridiron stage piece and Donald romping through the delirious Make 'Em Laugh-styled I Wanna Wander. There's lots to love here.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

The classical musical now has digitally enhanced picture quality, improved sound, "The making of" documentary, bloopers and out-takes. The minute "making of the video" is an inspirational look at the cast and crew 10 years after the Saturday's Warrior video was made and how that experience together has touched their lives over the years. It is funny and fun at times and very tender and spiritual at other times. The bloopers and out-takes are just plain fun.
