5 Top Shelf Blu-rays From the Warner Archive

1/5/2024
George Feltenstein of the Warner Archive joins the podcast to review five all-time great classic films released on Blu-ray in December. We go through each of the films and the included extras to help you decide if you want to add these films to your home collection. We start with the highly requested TARZAN, THE APE MAN (1932) from MGM starring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan. This terrific casting made this film a hit on its initial release and led to a series of films. But this is the one that started it all and the new 4K scan means that you now get to see and hear the film in the best condition since its initial release. The same can be said for our next film, ANNA CHRISTIE (1930) starring Greta Garbo in her first "talkie" film. Garbo shines, and the film still packs a punch 93 years after its initial release. Next is the Academy Award-winning film THE GREAT ZIEGFELD (1936) starring the irrepressible William Powell, Best Actress winner Luise Rainer, and Myrna Loy in the biopic on the famous entertainer. We review all of the extras on this packed disc and George details the restoration and many of the stars of the film. Our fourth film is the powerful drama MADAME BOVARY (1949), starring Jennifer Jones, Van Heflin, Louis Jourdan, and James Mason. We discuss the powerful teaming of director Vincente Minnelli and composer Miklos Rozsa and their importance to the film. And we detail the extras, especially the MGM 25th Anniversary retrospective film. We wrap up our discussion with the fan favorite GENTLEMAN JIM (1942) starring Errol Flynn in his favorite role and directed by one of his favorite collaborators, director Raoul Walsh. This is pure entertainment at its best, combining drama, comedy, and sport. The disc is loaded with extras and makes for a tantalizing release.
