Ok, so arrow buy one get one free offer....


On the day the sale starts I pop into my local hmv to see if they have the Ring & Larraz box sets, turns out they only have the Ring one. So i order both.....

Over 10 days later, the Larraz box has come in but the ring box "may take longer than expected" ( basically same thing i got when they went under).

Dear Arrow, please send more Ring box sets to hmv! Before the offer ends! Not worth the price tag otherwise!

ARROW ACADEMY


NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: The Major and the Minor (Blu-ray)

Release Date: 23rd September, 2019

"From one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed auteurs, Billy Wilder (Double Indemnity, Sunset Boulevard), comes the charming comedy classic The Major and the Minor.

Legendary actress and dancer Ginger Rogers (Monkey Business) stars as Susan Applegate, a struggling young woman who pretends to be an 11-year old girl in order to buy a half-price train ticket. Fleeing the conductors, she hides in the compartment of Major Philip Kirby (Ray Milland, The Big Clock, The Pyjama Girl Case). The Major believes Susan is a child and takes her under his wing, but when they arrive at the military academy where Kirby teaches, his fiancée (Rita Johnson) grows suspicious of Susan's ruse...

Co-written by Wilder and Charles Brackett (Hold Back the Dawn), The Major and the Minor assumes the guise of a light romance narrative in order to cleverly explore themes of identity and deception. Wilder’s American debut is presented here for the first time in stunning High Definition, with a selection of illuminating extras."

ARROW ACADEMY


NEW UK TITLE: Dark City (Blu-ray)

Release Date: 2nd September, 2019

"Originally developed as a star vehicle for Burt Lancaster, the lead role in the gripping revenge noir Dark City ultimately became the Hollywood debut of 26-year-old Charlton Heston, already confidently wielding the intense, rugged charisma that would define his career.

Once a decorated war hero, Danny Haley (played by Heston) now leads a group of small-time card sharks who know a sucker when they see one. They cheat their latest mark, Arthur (Don DeFore, Ramrod) out of $5000 at the poker table; but when Arthur hangs himself in despair, his unstable, hulking older brother (Mike Mazurki, Night and the City) seeks violent revenge on the grifters responsible. As the bodies pile up, Danny and his lover, nightclub singer Fran (Lizabeth Scott, Too Late For Tears), flee to Las Vegas… but Danny is about to learn he can’t hide from the consequences of his actions.

Expertly directed by William Dieterle (The Devil and Daniel Webster) and featuring a terrific supporting cast (including future Dragnet stars Jack Webb and Harry Morgan), Dark City is a nail-biting suspense classic that heralded a future screen icon."


SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS

  • Original uncompressed mono audio

That's the problem when mainstream television doesn't show older classic films any more

I wouldn't call Dark City arty farty. Its very mainstream and typical of Hollywood film noir of the time. It's probably not that well known to modern audiences because it's not considered a stonewall classic but should keep noir fans happy.
