The great Jason Robards (The Day After) recreates his Broadway role as the iconoclastic Murray Burns in A Thousand Clowns. Murray is funny, feisty, compassionate and very determined to have nothing to do with the lemming-like rush-hour world. But his resolve is tested when social workers Sandra (Barbara Harris, The War Between Men and Women) and Albert (William Daniels, The Graduate) tell him that he must shape up… or his 12-year-old nephew Nick (Barry Gordon, Body Slam) will be shipped out to a foster home. Released when workday lifestyles went largely unchallenged, this inventive comedy-drama gleefully speaks to the nonconformist in us all. Martin Balsam (After the Fox), Gene Saks (The Prisoner of Second Avenue) and John McMartin (Sweet Charity) co-star in this classic film directed by Fred Coe (Me, Natalie) with a screenplay by Herb Gardner (Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?) based on his own play. A Thousand Clowns won the 1966 Oscar for Actor in a Supporting Role (Balsam) and was nominated for three more Oscars: Picture (Coe), Adapted Screenplay (Gardner) and Score (Don Walker

From childhood, slightly awkward Brooklyn teenager Natalie Miller (Patty Duke, Valley of the Dolls, The Miracle Worker) never has subscribed to her mother’s (Nancy Merchand, TV’s The Sopranos) determined belief that she will grow up to be pretty. Her best friend Betty (Deborah Winters, Kotch) is a knockout gorgeous blonde with boyfriends, which further depresses her. Then she meets handsome David Harris (James Farentino, The War Lord), who finally convinces her that she’s a worthwhile human being and not the ugly duckling she always imagined herself to be. Television veteran Fred Coe (A Thousand Clowns) directed this sweet and charming comedy-drama written by A. Martin Zweiback (Grace Quigley) and Stanley Shapiro (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and featuring a Grammy-nominated score by the great Henry Mancini (The Pink Panther). Patty Duke won the 1970 Golden Globe for Best Actress –  Comedy or Musical for her endearing performance. The stellar cast includes Martin Balsam (After the Fox), Elsa Lanchester (Witness for the Prosecution), Bob Balaban (Cradle Will Rock) and screen legend Al Pacino (Dog Day Afternoon) in his feature film debut.

This collection feature three classic films starring screen legend Barbara Stanwyck.

INTERNES CAN’T TAKE MONEY (1937) – Young Dr. James Kildare (Joel McCrea, Four Faces West), interning at a clinic, falls for his patient Janet Haley (Barbara Stanwyck, Witness to Murder). The feeling is mutual, but Janet has a secret she will not divulge: She’s the widow of a bank robber who hid their daughter before he died and she is desperately trying to find the little girl. She will use anyone-including Dr. Kildare-to get her child back. The doctor’s association with gangster Hanlon (Lloyd Nolan, The House on 92nd Street), whose injuries Kildare secretly patched up, and Janet’s connection with gangster Innes (Stanley Ridges, Black Friday), who’s helping her find her daughter, bring it all to a rousing head filled with action, suspense and the unexpected! Stylishly directed by Alfred Santell (Breakfast for Two), Internes Can’t Take Money was the third of six films co-starring Stanwyck and McCrea and the only Dr. Kildare film produced by Paramount. The Max Brand-created character was picked up by MGM for a series of successful movies from 1938 to 1942 starring Lew Ayres as Kildare.

THE GREAT MAN’S LADY (1942) – From William A. Wellman, the legendary director of Wings, Beau Geste, Nothing Sacred, The Ox-Bow Incident, Yellow Sky and The High and the Mighty, comes this romantic western-drama starring screen icons Barbara Stanwyck (All I Desire) and Joel McCrea (The Virginian). After Hoyt City dedicates a statue to its founder Ethan Hoyt (McCrea), the woman who inspired his achievement, the 109-year-old Hannah Sempler (Stanwyck), tells their story to a young biographer. She begins with their elopement in 1848 when she was a headstrong Philadelphia girl of 16 and Ethan was an idealist yearning to build a city in the West. Their future was fraught with difficulties, from life in a prairie shack to a fruitless search for gold and, ultimately, to Ethan’s jealousy over Hannah’s friendship with gambler Steely Edwards (Brian Donlevy, Canyon Passage). Through it all, she remained what she is today: the woman who sacrificed everything for her husband’s sake. Filled with action and humor, this moving film was vigorously directed by Wellman and beautifully shot by the great William C. Mellor (A Place in the Sun).

THE BRIDE WORE BOOTS (1946) – From Irving Pichel, the acclaimed director of Tomorrow Is Forever, O.S.S., Something in the Wind, The Miracle of the Bells, Quicksand and Destination Moon, comes this comedy of errors about a bookish husband trying to win back the affections of his horse-breeding wife. Screen legend Barbara Stanwyck (There’s Always Tomorrow) stars as southern heiress Sally Warren, who loves everything to do with horseracing. Her studious husband, Jeff (Robert Cummings, The Chase), cannot stand the creatures and would rather spend his time writing. When their incompatibilities land them in divorce court, it will take a little imagination and a lot of luck to restore the love in their hilariously mismatched relationship. The Bride Wore Boots features a stellar cast that includes a young Natalie Wood (Driftwood), Diana Lynn (The Kentuckian) and the great Robert Benchley (Road to Utopia).

In appreciation of his skills and good looks, she sets him up as the “caretaker” of her beach house. When Vanessa’s sultry daughter (Jane Powell, Royal Wedding) meets Chris, the claws come out as both ladies try to stake out his affections in this campy and lusty battle for love. Stylishly directed by Harry Keller (The Unguarded Moment) and beautifully shot by the great Russell Metty (A Touch of Evil), with a strong supporting cast that includes Jan Sterling (Female on the Beach), Jerry Paris (Marty), James Gleason (Here Comes Mr. Jordan) and Gregg Palmer (Magnificent Obsession).

The Chinese theory that life is pre-ordained and that dreams are a glimpse into the future prompts Commander Lindsay (Michael Hordern, Where Eagles Dare) to relate a dream he has experienced to his fellow dinner guests, including Air Marshal Sir John Hardie (Michael Redgrave, The Captive Heart). The dream involves a Dakota aircraft carrying thirteen people, one of whom is Hardie. The plane is lost over the sea, the radio fails, and fuel is running short when, through a break in the clouds, a rock-strewn beach appears and the plane crashes horrifically. Lindsay then starts to live out his nightmare as different pieces from his dream start to fall into place. Are these similarities just coincidences or did his dream foretell the disaster? Ealing Studios veteran Leslie Norman (Dunkirk, X the Unknown) directed this thrilling and mysterious adventure yarn co- starring Alexander Knox (The Psychopath) and Denholm Elliott (The Sound Barrier).

He’s torn between the All-American beauty Margaret (Lisa Reeves, The Pom Pom Girls) and the worldlier Tracy (Meridith Baer, Private Lessons), while watching his younger brother make it all look so easy. On top of all this, with the senior prom looming, he starts having problems with his school principal and his boss at the chicken take-out.

The only thing riskier than the crime of the century is the romance of a lifetime! Small-time con artist Reese (Donald Sutherland, Klute, The Great Train Robbery, M*A*S*H) and his computer expert best friend Norman (Paul Mazursky, Fear and Desire, Blume in Love) concoct an ingenious plot for the perfect bank robbery: re-program the sophisticated electronic vault alarm system of a huge Vancouver bank while the building is still under construction, then calmly wait to make one very large withdrawal. But when Reese falls for a kooky commercial photographer (Brooke Adams, Days of Heaven, Cuba) who snapped shots of their plans, the ultimate heist takes some very unexpected turns in this wonderful crime comedy directed by Noel Black (Pretty Poison, Private School).

Screen legends Gene Hackman (The Package, Mississippi Burning) and Barbra Streisand (Funny Girl, The Way We Were) star as the oddest couple to beat the odds in this offbeat comedy that proves a man can lose everything and still live happily ever after. After successful executive George Dupler (Hackman) is demoted to managing a seedy all-night drugstore, he decides to totally change his life. Leaving his wife, he takes up with Cheryl (Streisand), a sexy but ditzy neighbor-who’s already had an affair with his son (Dennis Quaid, The Long Riders, The Big Easy)! Now his hands are full with his new wild woman by day and his weird and crazy customers by night in this screwball romantic comedy written by W.D. Richter (Big Trouble in Little China, Needful Things) and directed by Jean-Claude Tramont (Focal Point).

He led the Apache nation against Geronimo’s pillaging hordes! The two sons of Apache leader Cochise (Jeff Chandler, Broken Arrow) have conflicting views of the white men who trespass their land. Taza (Rock Hudson, Bend of the River) argues for peaceful co-existence, but his younger brother Naiche (Rex Reason, This Island Earth) joins Geronimo (Ian MacDonald, High Noon) on the warpath. One of the few westerns made in the 1950s that attempted to present a positive view of Native Americans, Taza, Son of Cochise, co-starring Barbara Rush (Magnificent Obsession), was the second of eight movies that Hudson made with director Douglas Sirk (The Tarnished Angels). Filmed on location in Utah, the natural setting of the desert is one of the movie’s many assets which is vividly captured by the glorious Technicolor cinematography by the great Russell Metty (Spartacus, Midnight Lace). This special edition includes both the 3-D and 2-D versions of the film. 3-D restoration by 3-D Film Archive!
