News From the Lake for July 2nd, 2014

News

Only three bits of news this week including what’s coming up this month as part of TCM’s Friday Night Spotlight, and a few DVD announcements.

Friday Night Spotlight

It’s the 100th Anniversary of WWI and TCM is paying tribute by devoting July’s Friday Night Spotlight to various views of WWI as seen throughout cinema.  With over forty films planned there’s something for everyone, (and starting July 11th, each Friday is a 24-hour marathon) and each one is introduced by retired U.S. Army General Wesley Clark.  Here’s the schedule, all movies start at 8pm Eastern.  Since I published this late I’m starting with the following week:

New on DVD

Universal: Last year, Universal released their titled “monsters” (Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Invisible Man, Wolf Man, The Mummy) and various sequels on Blu-ray, a continuation of their Legacy series. Now, on September 2nd, you can get the Complete Legacy series for all six monsters.  Each set contains every movie in each creature’s series, sequels and all.  Bonus features look to carry over from past releases and there’s no talk of Blu-ray releases for any of the sequels.

 

Warner Archive: Going off the past releases being centered around a specific actor or actress, this week’s spate of releases celebrate Errol Flynn with three films: Another Dawn (1937) co-starring Kay Francis; Escape Me Never (1947) with Gig Young, Ida Lupino and Eleanor Parker; and The Warriors (1955) co-starring Joanne Dru. All of these are manufactured on-demand and can be purchased at Warner Archive’s website.
