New Releases: Bogey, Cagney, Bradbury
Released Aug 28, 2012
New to DVD this week are six films starring icons Humphrey Bogart and Jimmy Cagney. BATTLE CIRCUS (1953) places Bogey inside a MASH unit during the Korean police action, THE CROWD ROARS (1932) put Cagney behind the wheel of a racecar, while CHINA CLIPPER (1936) puts Bogey behind the wheel of a transpacific airliner. THE GREAT O’MALLEY (1936) sees Bogey behind the eight ball due to Pat O’Brien’s overzealous cop and KING OF THE UNDERWORLD (1939) sees Bogey dragging Kay Francis down to his level, while THESE WILDER YEARS (1956) puts seasoned vets James Cagney and Barbara Stanwyck against one another.
Next we turn to the wide world of TV with Ray Bradbury’s THE HALLOWEEN TREE (1993) - narrated by the October man himself! Then we have three made-for-TV classics, THE SKY’S NO LIMIT (1984) with Anne Archer, Sharon Gless and Dee Wallace, PROMISE (1986) with James Garner and James Woods, and a truly all-star cast in VICTORY AT ENTEBBE (1977). Finally, we take to the skies for SKY COMMANDERS: THE COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES (1986).
