Wonderful movies for every taste are now available on DVD. This book examines a rich selection from "As Good As It Gets" through "You'll Never Get Rich". Musicals include "The Dolly Sisters" and "Wonder Bar", noir thrills take in "Out of the Past" and "T-Men", mysteries include "Crossfire" and "Song of the Thin Man", comedies explore classics such as "Another Fine Mess" and "Fun on a Weekend", suspense thrillers take us on a "Pursuit to Algiers" with a "Special Agent". Other genres are well represented too. For example, quirky humor can be found "Alice" and "Broadway Danny Rose"; romance in "The Garden of Allah" and "My Heart Is Calling"; horror in "The Thing" and "White Zombie"; big budget drama in "City for Conquest" and the spectacular "Noah's Ark"; nostalgia in "The Sun Shines Bright" and "I Found Stella Parish". And then there are series pictures: The complete "Thin Man" movies and all the "Torchy Blane" titles are dealt with in detail. In fact, the only major category of movies not included in this book are westerns. And the good news is that most of these DVDs can be purchased outright from the listed stores, manufacturers or distributors for less than it costs to rent current releases.
