One of America's most significant and controversial post-war films, this triple-Oscar-nominated feature boasts a searing performance by Frank Sinatra as a war veteran caught between two worlds as he tries to kick his drug habit and establish a new life; Eleanor Parker is his embittered, manipulative wife, and Kim Novak the young woman who stands by him. With its groundbreaking subject and an authenticity rarely matched in the many films it inspired, The Man with the Golden Arm combines masterly direction by Otto Preminger and a jazz score by the legendary Elmer Bernstein. It is featured here in a stunning new digital restoration, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Having just served a prison term for possession of heroin, poker dealer Frankie Machine vows to stay clean and find success as a jazz drummer. His wife, left disabled by a car crash, is equally determined he should remain in the lucrative gambling business. Pressurised by his wife after being asked to deal in a high-stakes game, Frankie's fear of failure leads him straight back to the nearest fix...

BIRTH OF THE BLUES:As a child, Jeff Lambert (Bing Crosby) hangs out in New Orleans' Basin Street, playing hot swing on his clarinet instead of the classics his father prefers. He's Inspired by an African-American group there and some years later, at the turn of the century, sets out to form a jazz band of his own. With cornetist Memphis (Brian Donlevy), singer Betty Lou Cobb (Mary Martin) and trombonist Jack Teagarden (Of the Original Dixieland Jazz Group, after which the story is patterned), he's on his way.A veritable history of jazz follows. From jump and jive to sweet romanticism, half a century of popular hits is given spectacular treatment. By the Light of the Silvery Moon is sung in a theatre with lantern slides on the screen. Singer Ruby Elzy's St. Louis Blues is backed by a chorus of eighty. And Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie brings Crosby and Martin together in a knockout duet.BLUE SKIES:For what Fred Astaire Had announced would be his last film, no expense was spared. This musical extravaganza boasts 30 Irving Berlin songs, 47 sets, sumptuous costumes, and a budget of $3,000,000. The result is sensational. (And, fortunately, Astaire did not retire from films!)Dancing star Jed Potter (Astaire) and singer/nightclub owner Johnny Adams (Bing Crosby) are both in love with songstress Mary' O'Hara (Joan Caulfield). She marries Johnny, but his passion for buying and selling nightclubs drives them apart. So Jed steps in, hoping to win Mary's heart - until fate steps in and changes the lives of all three. The most outstanding number is Astaire's famous Puttin' on the Ritz , a split-screen gem with a chorus of miniature Astaires tap-dancing behind him. Designed by Astaire, it took five weeks of back-breaking physical work to achieve. Other highlights find Astaire and Crosby as A Couple of Song and Dance Men, and Crosby crooning a wealth of Berlin tunes, including the Oscar nominated You Keep Coming Back Like A Song. With its superb stars and sparkling numbers, Blue Skies is one of the all-time great musicals!
Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present the soundtrack to 1972's Giallo MY DEAR KILLER with music by Maestro Ennio Morricone. MY DEAR KILLER (Mid Caro Assassino) was a 1972 Giallo directed by Tonino Valerii (The Assistant director on A FIST FULL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE), it is easily one of the greatest of all Giallo films to come out of Italy and you owe it to yourself to track it down and watch it. The score form Maestro Ennio Morricone is absolutely outstanding and not only is it one of his most unheard scores but also one of his best during his Giallo period. It's intense, unsettling creepy and mesmerizing. It features the haunting vocals of Italian royalty Edda Dell'Orso on several tracks and it's Jazz Lounge stylings are absolutely superb. It's also super listenable and restrained to make this a great repeat listen.
Like Someone In Love, named after Ella Fitzgerald's jazz standard, is a droll, elegant and playful film preoccupied with identities mistaken and assumed, laced with references to the films of Yasujiro Ozu. Akiko, a pretty and slightly distant sociology student works nights as a high- class escort. Instead of studying for her exams and meeting her grandmother, she reluctantly goes to the house of her latest client, retired sociology professor Takashi. The next morning, she allows him to give her a ride to university, crossing paths with her volatile boyfriend, Noriaki (Ryo Kase). The latter assume that the kind old man is Akiko's grandfather, thus allowing an odd role-playing routine to begin, until, perhaps, the hoax is discovered. After Certified Copy and Ten, Like Someone In Love offers, with pristine images and long takes off the streets of Tokyo at night, a new facet of Kiarostami's study of human relations and unforeseeable encounters.

Returning to the city of his birth for inspiration, legendary maverick director Robert Altman helms an evocative, bullet-riddled tribute to the music and movies of his youth in Kansas City, a Depression-era gangster flick as only he could make one. Blondie O’Hara (Jennifer Jason Leigh) resorts to desperate measures when her low-level hood husband Johnny (Dermot Mulroney) gets caught trying to steal from Seldom Seen (Harry Belafonte), a local crime boss operating out of jazz haunt The Hey-Hey Club. Out on a limb, Blondie kidnaps laudanum-addled socialite Carolyn (Miranda Richardson), hoping her influential politician husband can pull the right strings and get Johnny out of Seldom Seen’s clutches. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and featuring a remarkable soundtrack performed live by some of the best players in contemporary jazz, one of Altman’s most underrated and idiosyncratic films finally makes its long-awaited Blu-ray™ debut.

A delightful return to the romantic-comedy territory that Woody Allen last explored in such classics as Annie Hall and Manhattan, Alice was also Oscar-nominated for Best Original Screenplay, but departs from the earlier films in its embrace of out-and-out fantasy to the point where it becomes a contemporary fairytale. Alice Tate (Mia Farrow) is trapped in a loveless marriage to Doug (William Hurt), to the point where a chance encounter with handsome jazz musician Joe (Joe Mantegna) leaves her hopelessly conflicted. Seeking treatment for backache from a Chinese acupuncturist (Keye Luke), she confesses her feelings under hypnosis and comes away with some ancient herbs that possess mysterious and even supernatural powers. But will they solve Alice’s dilemmas, or merely make them even more complicated? And can she really throw away all Doug’s material wealth purely for love? Gliding effortlessly from reality to daydream and from memory to magic, while exploring the intricate and unfathomable unity of human bonds, Alice was described by the New York Times as “hilarious and romantic, serious and exuberantly satiric”.
