Four David Susskind Archive Titles Due on DVD and Digital From MVD

Four titles from the David Susskind Archive — The Paul Newman Trilogy, The Power and the Glory, Harvey and The Bridge of San Luis Rey — are being released on DVD and digital this fall from MVD Entertainment Group.

Three early live TV performances starring Paul Newman as a college kid, a clothing manufacturer and a cowardly soldier are available Oct. 5 in The Paul Newman Trilogy. Produced by David Susskind for inclusion in various TV anthology series, these shows have not been seen since their original air dates in 1956-57. Featuring all-star casts, headed by Newman, including Jack Lord, Nehemiah Persoff, Sydney Pollack and Frank Campanella, each episode contains the original commercials and previews of future shows. “Five in Judgment” has two hitchhiking college kids forced to seek shelter from a storm in a small town diner where they’re falsely accused of committing murder. The diner customers and owner terrorize the boys in the belief they committed the murder, only to discover the horrible truth. “The Rag Jungle” has Newman working for his father as a clothing manufacturer. They run up against racketeers demanding protection money, Newman refuses to pay and after his father is attacked, he organizes other manufacturers to stand up against the gangsters. “The Army Game” portrays Newman as a spoiled mama’s boy, a nine letter man in college and a narcissist who doesn’t want to be in the Army. His efforts to get a discharge anger his friends and barrack mates and it’s not until he’s attacked in the barracks that he’s given his discharge.

Also due Oct. 5 is The Power and the Glory (1961), based on the Graham Green novel. In the film, set in the 1930s, a cynical Catholic priest is sent to Mexico to preach in post-revolution Mexico: a cleric who risks his life by continuing to conduct the Catholic Mass in secret after the totalitarian government has outlawed the Catholic Church. In order to confer the Christian sacraments, the priest must have wine but his attempts to obtain wine will call attention to his clandestine activities. Featuring a cast with multiple Oscar winners, the film was released theatrically in Europe and was nominated for an Emmy and DGA awards. The novel was recommended reading by Barack Obama in 2008.

Due Nov. 9 is Harvey (1958). The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd, an endlessly pleasant and delightfully eccentric bachelor living in a small town that isn’t aware that its newest citizen is an invisible, 6’3″ white rabbit named “Harvey” that only he sees. After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for the family to heal. Featuring an all-star cast (Art Carney, Larry Blyden, Fred Gwynne, Marion Lorne, Elizabeth Montgomery, Charlotte Rae, Jack Weston), the film master elements were provided by the Paley Center for Media. The novel won the 1945 Pulitzer Prize.

In The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1958), available Dec. 14, a friar is tried by the Inquisition for questioning God’s intentions when five die in the collapse of an Andean bridge. In early 18th century Peru (1714), an old Inca rope bridge over a gorge in the Andes, collapses, plunging five travelers to their deaths. Brother Juniper, who was within minutes of being on the bridge himself, becomes obsessed with discovering how five people of differing class and circumstances came to be on the bridge at that moment. The Catholic friar wants to know if it was mere existential happenstance or part of God’s cosmic plan. After researching the lives of the victims for five years and publishing his findings in a book, he is accused of heresy by the worldly Archbishop of Lima and put on trial for his life by the Inquisition. Starring Judith Anderson (who received an Emmy nomination for her role) and Theodore Bikel, Hume Cronyn, Rita Gam, Viveca Lindfors and Kurt Kaznar, the film originally aired as part of “Dupont Show of the Month.” The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Thornton Wilder’s second novel, won a Pulitzer Prize and is  No. 37 on the American Modern Library’s list of “100 Best 20th Century Novels.”

The film is scanned in 4K from the negative of the long-rumored uncut version with all-new special features. Extras include an interview with writer-director John A.

Overboard will be available on DVD and Blu-ray. The romantic comedy stars Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell in a riches-to-rags love story about a snobby yacht-owning socialite (Hawn) whose accidental amnesia presents the perfect opportunity for a widowed local carpenter (Russell) to convince her she’s his wife and mother to his four out-of-control kids.

One year after his international breakthrough with The Cannibal Man, Basque filmmaker de la Iglesia co-wrote and directed the twisted thriller No One Heard the Scream, due on DVD and Blu-ray, his last under Spain’s repressive Franco regime. In the film, when a woman spies her neighbor disposing of his wife’s corpse, she crosses the line from witness to accomplice to something far more depraved. The release features an HD scan from the original negative.

The “Eloy De La Iglesia’s Quinqui Collection” will also be available on Blu-ray. Short for quincallero (delinquent) and pronounced “kinky,” it was a brutal sub-genre of juvenile gang dramas produced in ’70s and ’80s Spain. For Basque writer/director de la Iglesia, these three Cine Quinqui classics would become the most successful, controversial and tragically defining films of his entire career. José Luis Manzano — the charismatic street kid discovered by de la Iglesia — stars in this graphic neorealist trilogy that depicts the crime, violence and drug abuse that ravaged the post-Franco nation, and led to the filmmaker and actor’s real-life addictions to heroin — and each other — that would ultimately destroy them both. Navajeros, El Pico and El Pico 2 are scanned in HD from the original negatives with all-new special features created especially for the collection.

Two horror films, Lust and Through the Shadow, and the science-fiction fantasy I Am Toxic will come out on DVD Aug. 10 from Jinga Films and MVD Entertainment Group.

In the Spanish-language Lust, a famous crime writer becomes a victim after a crazed fan brutally attacks her.

Confronted with continual apparitions, and noting the children’s increasingly ambiguous behavior, Laura becomes convinced in the presence of hostile spirits whom she believes are intent on taking possession of her young charges. With growing concerns for their safety, she strives to unravel the mysteries of her new home without realizing that it may be herself who is in mortal danger. Based on Henry James classic novel The Turn Of The Screw.

In the Spanish-language I Am Toxic, a man wakes up in a world ravaged by biological warfare with no memory of his previous life.

David Lynch’s ‘Dune’ on 4K, Italian Cinema Headline Blu-ray Releases From Arrow and MVD in August

David Lynch’s Dune on 4K, the Italian “Sergio Martino Collection,” the Japanese erotic horror film Blind Beast, Dario Argento’s Cat O’ Nine Tails on 4K and the horror film The Brotherhood of Satan are coming to Blu-ray from MVD Entertainment Group and Arrow Video in August.

On Aug. 3, Arrow kicks things off with the Blu-ray release of “The Sergio Martino Collection.” The three-disc set features three classic 1970s films from the Italian genre filmmaker. George Hilton stars as an insurance investigator trying to get to the bottom of a strange string of murders in The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail. Next, Martino takes on Edgar Allen Poe in Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key. Martino borrows elements from Poe’s “The Black Cat” to craft this tale of a series of murders around the estate of a degenerate author and his wife. In The Suspicious Death of a Minor, the murder of a prostitute leads to the discovery of a trafficking ring with ties to powerful people. All three films come with 2K restorations from the original camera negatives.

On Aug. 24, Arrow will release two titles on Blu-ray. First up is 1969’s Blind Beast. The erotic horror story of a blind sculptor that kidnaps a young model with the help of his mother comes courtesy of director Yasuzô Masumura, one of post-war Japan’s most important filmmakers.

Also coming from Arrow on Aug. 24 is the 4K Ultra HD release of Dario Argento’s classic giallo The Cat O’ Nine Tails, starring Academy Award winner Karl Malden. A newspaper reporter and a retired journalist work together to get to the bottom of a series of killings in this straight forward murder-mystery, offering an early glimpse into the style and technique that would later become Argento trademarks. The release features an illustrated collector’s booklet featuring an original essay on the film by Dario Argento and writing by Barry Forshaw, Troy Howarth and Howard Hughes; a fold-out double-sided poster featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Obviously Creative; six double-sided, postcard-sized lobby card reproduction artcards; and limited edition packaging with reversible sleeve featuring originally and newly commissioned artwork by Obviously Creative.

Arrow brings the month to a close with two titles Aug. 31. A cult of senior citizens recruits the children of a desert town to worship Satan in director Bernard McEveety’s The Brotherhood of Satan, due on Blu-ray. This low-budget horror entry was notable for giving theater patrons a packet of seeds during its original theatrical run. The seeds were labeled as “Satan’s soul” and claimed to offer protection “from the Black Magic of The Brotherhood of Satan.”

Also streeting Aug. 31 is David Lynch’s Dune (1984). The controversial adaptation of Frank Herbert’s beloved novel has achieved cult classic status over the years, and it arrives with a brand new 4K restoration on both limited edition Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray just ahead of the new blockbuster remake. The all-star cast of the sci-fi epic includes Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Sting, Patrick Stewart, Sean Young and Max von Sydow. The release includes a 60-page book featuring new writing on the film by Andrew Nette, Christian McCrea and Charlie Brigden; a large fold-out double-sided poster featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Dániel Taylor; six double-sided, postcard-sized lobby card reproductions; and limited edition packaging with reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Dániel Taylor.
