Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywood

Tasked by studio executives with finding the next great screen siren, visionary Hollywood director Josef von Sternberg joined forces with rising German actor Marlene Dietrich, kicking off what would become one of the most legendary photo for Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywoodpartnerships in cinema history. Over the course of six films produced by Paramount in the 1930s, the pair refined their shared fantasy of pleasure, beauty, and excess. Dietrich’s coolly transgressive mystique was a perfect match for the provocative roles von Sternberg cast her in — including a sultry chanteuse, a cunning spy, and the hedonistic Catherine the Great — and the filmmaker captured her allure with chiaroscuro lighting and opulent design, conjuring fever-dream visions of exotic settings from Morocco to Shanghai. Suffused with frank sexuality and worldly irony, these six deliriously entertaining masterpieces are landmarks of cinematic artifice. "Morocco" (1930), "Dishonored" (1931), "Shanghai Express" (1932), "Blonde Venus" (1932), "The Scarlett Empress" (1934), "The Devil Is a Woman (1935).

The Last House on the Left [Limited Edition]

(1972) Directed by Wes Craven. Stars Sandra Peabody, Lucy Grantham, David Hess. The directorial debut of Wes Craven, the man behind such horror favorites as "A Nightmare on Elm Street," "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Scream," "The Last House on the Left" justly retains its reputation as one of the most harrowing cinematic experiences of all time, nearly half a century on from its original release. On the eve of her 17th birthday, Mari and friend Phyllis set off from her family home to the big city to attend a concert by shock-rockers Bloodlust. Attempting to pick up some marijuana on the way, the pair run afoul of a group of vicious crooks, headed up by the sadistic and depraved Krug (David Hess). Gagged and bound, the young women are bundled into a car trunk and driven to the woods, where the gang subject them to a terrifying ordeal of sexual humiliation, torture and murder. Unleashed on an unsuspecting public in 1972, "The Last House on the Left" shocked audiences with its graphic and unflinching portrayal of interpersonal violence, paving the way for a whole host of cheap imitators looking to capitalize on its success. It is Wes Craven’s original alone, however, that remains one of the true watershed moments in horror (and indeed, film) history. On Blu-ray. Three cuts of the film newly restored in 2K from original film elements with original uncompressed mono audio. Extras: double-sided poster featuring original and newly commissioned artwork; six lobby card reproductions; limited edition perfect-bound book featuring new writing on the film by author Stephen Thrower; reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Paul Shipper; commentaries; interviews; outtakes; dailies; "The Craven Touch" brand new featurette; trailers; TV and radio spots; image gallery.

When a messenger from the afterlife arrives to correct the clerical error that spared his life, Peter must mount a fierce defense for his right to stay on earth — painted by production designer Alfred Junge and cinematographer Jack Cardiff as a rich Technicolor Eden — climbing a wide staircase to stand trial in a starkly beautiful, black-and-white modernist heaven.
