frank_sinatra_collection.jpgFrank Sinatra: 5 Film Collection Celebrated Frank Sinatra’s 100th Birthday with five classic Sinatra movies on Digital HD March 31 and Blu-ray™ on May 5 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.






The Frank Sinatra: 5 Film Collection newly remastered Blu-ray includes

Anchors Aweigh 




Two sailors, one naive, the other experienced in the ways of the world, are all set for liberty in Los Angeles and only want a good time. But that goal becomes something of a mess. A funny musical.




On the Town 





In this comedy, romance , musical, three sailors have only 24 hours of shore leave in New York City to find love and romance.  Can they do that and still get back to their duty station?



Robin and the 7 Hoods 




This comedy, crime, musical has a great cast that must tackle prohibition-era Chicago, a corrupt sheriff, a south-side racketeer, a family member set on a goal and everyone wanting  some green cash.



Also Included are GUYS AND DOLLS: Hollywood legends Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra and Vivian Blaine (from the original Broadway cast) are dazzling in this Frank Loesser (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) masterpiece. Featuring hits like "Luck Be a Lady" and "A Woman in Love", this smash film version of one of Broadway's most popular musicals is guaranteed rip-roaring "four-star entertainment" (New York Daily News).

OCEAN'S 11: New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. When the lights go out on the Vegas strip, it's the perfect time to steal a kiss or a $25 chip. But for Danny Ocean (Frank Sinatra) and 10 partners in crime, it's the ideal moment to steal millions. Also starring Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, and packed with location-lensed glamour, suspense, comedy and a stunning twist ending, Ocean's 11 is a sure bet.


The Frank Sinatra: 5 Film Collection includes a 32-page photo book which documents cinematic moments from some of Sinatra’s works.

The DVD set is available at DVD outlets.


Broadway Melody of 1940

broadwaymelody_1940-movie-poster.jpgBroadway Melody of 1940 saw the curtain close on one of MGM’s most famed musical series. Not that audiences of the time were left starving for cinematic song-and-dance, but the franchise was among the studio’s earliest and hugest success stories. The original 1929 flick was MGM’s first-ever musical and recipient of the second Best Picture Academy Award, igniting a string of loosely-connected (to put it generously) follow-ups that focused on bright-eyed show business hopefuls. And yet Broadway Melody of 1940 -- featuring Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell at the top of their game -- saved the best for last in a multitude of ways. Its story and score may not strike one as especially different from other tuneful spectacles of the era, but its charm and fancy footwork are undoubtedly a cut above the competition, resulting in a whimsical work that shows masters of their craft at their very best.
