After his breakout success in the forties, and stints at an array of the major studios, Danny Kaye came to call Paramount Pictures home for much of the fifties. It was there that Kaye created some of his most memorable screen portrayals, as evidenced by the pair found in this collection (both of which enjoyed contributions from Kaye's songstress spouse, Sylvia Fine). The epic comic fantasy The Court Jester (1955) sees Kaye playing a fool who gets embroiled in a plot to overthrow a tyrant king. Thanks to the amazing all-star cast (including Angela Lansbury and Basil Rathbone), a score courtesy of Sylvia Fine and Sammy Cahn, and creators Norman Panama and Melvin Frank (and Kaye's considerable talents), The Court Jester is rightly considered a cinema classic. In The Five Pennies (1959), Kaye pairs up with Satchmo himself, the astonishing Louis Armstrong to bring the tale of Jazzman Red Nichols to life alongside a bevy of Big Band greats. Tuesday Weld makes her screen debut, too!

After conquering the Borscht Belt and Broadway, David Daniel Kaminksi (Danny Kaye) got the nod from maverick impresario Samuel Goldwyn and under his tutelage soon mastered the movies as well. Kaye makes his feature film debut alongside Dinah Shore in Up in Arms (1944) as a hypochondriac war hero. Virginia Mayo gets paired with Kaye for the first time in Wonder Man (1945), which features one of his signature cinema schticks â€“ multiple roles in the same film. Kaye plays twins with a twist: one of them is a ghost! The Kid from Brooklyn (1946) sees Kaye playing a milquetoast milkman who masters the squared circle and romances a nightclub nightingale (Virginia Mayo). A Song is Born (1948) sees Howard Hawks re-envisioning his classic Ball of Fire as a superstar jazz musical, with Kaye in the Gary Cooper role and Mayo in the Barbara Stanwyck role as the moll who sweeps several professors off their feet.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

Having clocked up almost 40 years in the business, the man born Prince Rogers Nelson has had one of the most extraordinary careers in music, built up one of the most eclectic and joyous bodies of work and achieved the highest levels of professionalism on just about every instrument he has seen fit to try his hand at. To call this individual a musical genius would be an understatement of near criminal proportions. This two DVD set celebrates the extraordinary journey Prince has taken as it documents his career in two separate films. The first covers Prince in the 1980s, the decade that he ruled the world and changed the face of music forever. The second programme is made up exclusively of filmed interviews with the man himself, going right back to his early career and coming right up to date, during which he discusses all manner of topics, his life and his music. Completed elegantly in a limited edition box set, this package is all set to become a Prince collectable of the first order.

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.
