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.”

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.
