American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered (2014) Narrated by Stanley Tucci, the film -- which airs day and date on PBS channels -- explores Crosby's life and legend with unprecedented access to his archives, including never-before-seen photo for American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscoveredfootage, and reveals a man far more complex than his public persona. Thirty-seven years after his death, Crosby remains the most recorded performer in history with nearly 400 hit singles, an achievement no one -- not Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley or The Beatles -- has come close to matching. A brilliant entrepreneur, Crosby played an important role in the development of the postwar recording industry. As one of Hollywood's most popular actors, he won the Oscar for 1944's "Going My Way" and starred in the iconic "Road" films with Bob Hope. American Masters received unprecedented access to the entertainer's personal and professional archives, including never-before-seen home movies, Dictabelt recordings, photos and more. The film features new interviews with all surviving members of Crosby's immediate family: wife Kathryn, daughter Mary and sons Harry and Nathaniel. The film reveals Crosby's struggles with his first wife, Dixie Lee, and their sons Gary, Dennis, Phillip and Lindsay. Mary addresses accusations of abuse first published in Gary's 1983 memoir, which tarnished their father's legacy. Gary speaks candidly about both his and his mother's alcoholism as well as his difficulties with his father in a never-before-seen 1987 interview. Other new interviews include singers Tony Bennett and Michael Feinstein, record producer Ken Barnes, biographer Gary Giddins, and writers Buz Kohan and Larry Grossman, who both share the story behind Crosby's Christmas special duet with David Bowie. "American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered -- The Soundtrack" features songs heard in the documentary, including 16 previously unreleased recordings, and is available November 25 via Bing Crosby Archive and Universal Music Enterprises. Formats: DVD. (PBS Distribution).

photo for The Congress The Congress (2014) Robin Wright, Harvey Keitel, Paul Giamatti, Danny Huston, Jon Hamm. More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with "The Princess Bride," an aging actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her 3-D digital likeness for a future Hollywood. Through a deal brokered by her loyal, longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston), the character known as "Robin Wright" will be exclusively owned and controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. Wright will remain an eternal thirtysomething in all Miramount films, but will also be forbidden from acting on any other stage, anywhere in the world, forever.

photo for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington BLU-RAY DEBUT Mr. Smith Goes to Washington BLU-RAY DEBUT (1939) This 4K remastering celebrates the film's 75th anniversary. Jean Arthur, James Stewart and Claude Rains star in Frank Capra's award-winning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small town senator who heads to Washington and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him. When Capra decided to film the novel "The Gentleman From Montana", he ran into an obstacle: Director Rouben Mamoulian owned the rights to the story. Unwilling to sell, Mamoulian eventually traded the material to Columbia on the condition that he be allowed to direct "Golden Boy." As Capra began working on the film, it was suggested that Gary Copper, the star of "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town," take the lead. Capra selected Jimmy Stewart instead and the film solidified Stewart's movie career, garnering him his first Academy Award nomination. Receiving a total of eleven 1939 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), and winning one (Best Motion Picture Story), "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" is considered one of Capra's, Stewart's and Columbia's finest films. It also marked the end of an era: It was Capra's final film for the studio. Presented in Digibook packaging with rare photos and a new essay by film historian Jeremy Arnold. Extras: Audio commentary by Frank Capra Jr.; original theatrical trailer; rare international trailer which includes footage deleted from the final film; feature-length documentary: "Frank Capra's American Dream," narrated by Ron Howard and incorporating interviews with the director's friends, colleagues and admirers; "Frank Capra Jr. Remembers ...
