Grand Prix (BD) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Warner Home Video Brand: Formula 1 Color: color
Formula I drivers compete to be the best in this slam-you-into-the-driverâ€™s seat tale of speed, spectacle and intertwined personal lives. John Frankenheimer (who 32 years later would again stomp the pedal to the metal for the car chases of Ronin) directs this winner of 3 Academy Awards,* crafting split-screen images to capture the overlapping drama and orchestrating you-are-there POV camerawork to intensify the hard-driving thrills. Nearly 30 top drivers take part in the excitement. Buckle up to race with the best. Light on story, this 1966 spectacle directed by John Frankenheimer was shot in 70 millimeter, with a cinematically enthralling emphasis on unique, visceral new ways of capturing the sensations of a car race. James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, Yves Montand, and Toshiro Mifune are part of the stellar, international cast whose characters plod through assorted relationship and business conflicts. But the film's real hook is the thrilling and inventive means by which Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate) brings an urgency to the drama happening on the racetrack. A true master of the plastic techniques of obtaining and cutting kinetic footage, Frankenheimer offers more than a joyride to viewers: he makes action part of the compelling language of stories. Cameras are strapped to vehicles as they round the track, shots are taken from a helicopter, the screen is split between angles for maximum impact--even if Grand Prix doesn't rank among the director's best characte...
Yes Sir, Jack Nicklaus and the Historic 1986 Masters Victory
Manufacturer: A&E Entertainment Brand: E1 ENTERTAINMENT Model: DV2052
The 1986 Masters Tournament at Augusta National was the last of Jack Nicklaus' record 18 majors. At the age of 46, it was arguably the most improbable of those titles and certainly one of the most compelling dramas in the history of sport. Through exclusive interviews, personal reflections, and captivating footage, Yes Sir! Jack Nicklaus And His Historic 1986 Masters Win celebrates the many layers of this thrilling, come-from-behind triumph and this where-were-you moment in history. For parts of three decades, 'The Golden Bear' dominated golf, winning more major championships than anyone in that era or any era before him. But, without a major championship trophy to place on the mantle since 1980, the 46-year-old seemed a distant shot to win another green jacket. However, with his son, Jack II, as his caddy, this father-son Sunday stroll turned into a breathtaking edge-of-your-seat final round capped by a back-nine 30 that allowed Jack Nicklaus to claim his sixth Masters title and provide the exclamation point on his legacy as golf's greatest championship. Yes Sir! features remarkable footage and exclusive interviews with Tiger Woods (10 years old at the time of the '86 Masters and pursuer of Nicklaus' record 18 professional major championships), Jack, Jack II, and the Nicklaus family (wife Barbara and son Steve), CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz, Greg Norman, and others who tell the tale of a transcendent 46-year-old conquering time and capturing one last golden piece of magical his...
