Othello / Laurence Olivier
Manufacturer: Kultur Video Brand: Hopkins
Stuart Burge's film of John Dexter's production of Othello at the National Theatre was made in Shakespeare's Quarter-Centenary year and stands today as a masterpiece among film presentations of theatre productions. Shakespeare's tragic story of how a great man's vanity is manipulated by a jealous aide to bring about his downfall has never been more movingly nor dramatically portrayed. One of Shakespeare's most powerful dramas, here presented by an inspired National Theatre Company. Laurence Olivier, Maggie Smith, Frank Finlay and Joyce Redman all received both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for their performances. A screen classic in every sense.

Steambath (Broadway Theatre Archive)
Manufacturer: Kultur Video Brand: Kulter
This razor-sharp and still outrageous comedy portrays God as an overworked steambath attendant who doles out "wrath" and "blessed events" in between assignments of scrubbing floors and walls. Bill Bixby and Valerie Perrine star. This unique play presents the afterlife as a steam bath, in which dead souls continue to obsess about the same petty concerns that obsessed them in their lives, until they are cast into a dark void by God, the Puerto Rican attendant (JosÃ© PÃ©rez). But new arrival Tandy (Bill Bixby) at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does, he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial in its day for its obscene language (which was softened for this filmed version, originally presented on PBS), its satirical take on religion, and some brief nudity by bombshell Valerie Perrine. Today it's still very entertaining, but mostly as a core sampling of the surprisingly uncensored male attitudes from the dawn of the 1970s. Everyone gives a solid performance and Bixby's easy charm makes his self-centered character sympathetic. --Bret Fetzer
