"Sunday In New York" Comes To DVD

6 December 2010 6:39 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

The oft-requested 1963 comedy Sunday in New York finally comes to DVD through the Warner Archive. The film had previously only been available on VHS. The movie is based on Norman Krasna's 1961 play which was a modest hit on Broadway starring young Robert Redford. Krasna also provides the screenplay for the film version, which was directed by Peter Tewksbury. The film was somewhat of an eyebrow-raiser at the time, with its relatively bold approach to modern sexuality among young people. The movie's major asset is its engaging cast of lead characters: Cliff Robertson, Jane Fonda, Rod Taylor and Robert Culp. Fonda plays a frustrated 22 year-old virgin who is made to feel guilty about her sexual urges. She is going out with millionaire society boy Culp but is frustrated by his lack of romantic aggressiveness.Fonda makes an unannounced visit to her brother, airline pilot Robertson, in order »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘White Christmas’ Remains Holiday Favorite For Millions

8 November 2010 7:17 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye was the #1 film of 1954 and has become an annual favorite for millions of families all the way back to the days before VHS. Paramount has released the musical charmer on Blu-ray with new special features along with a snowy 2-disc holiday DVD edition for those still waiting for Santa to bring them a Blu-ray player. Dream of a “White Christmas” in HD.

Blu-Ray Rating: 3.5/5.0

First, a little history. The film “White Christmas” is not the origin of the song that gave it a title. It was reportedly sung before “Holiday Inn,” a 1942 film with Crosby, but that’s the film that made it popular (and, actually, a better flick than “White Christmas,” which is something of a remake of “Holiday Inn”). With its longing for home, the song took off during World War II and won the Oscar for Best Original Song. »
