Joan Collins defined the "Greed is Good" decade as Alexis Carrington on Dynasty, and became a pop culture icon in the process. This eye-opening boxed set recalls her formative years as a contract player for Fox studios. Movie superstardom eluded Motion Picture Magazine's Most Promising New Star of 1957, but these five films show her to mostly excellent advantage. Three are enormously entertaining, one is a guilty pleasure, and, in Stopover Tokyo (1957), a tepid Cold War drama costarring Robert Wagner, she seems to be channeling Elizabeth Taylor. The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing (1955) offers Collins one of her juiciest roles as Evelyn Nesbit, the wide-eyed chorus girl at the center of the real-life crime of the turn of the century, the murder of her married lover, architect Stanford White (Ray Milland) by Nesbit's unstable husband, Henry K. Thaw (Farley Granger). Another sure bet is Seven Thieves, with Collins holding her own opposite Edward G. Robinson, Rod Steiger and Eli Wallach as a "mantrap" with a seductive role in the $4 million heist of a Monte Carlo casino. The suburban sex farce Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys (1958) is dated, but naughty good fun, with an intoxicating Collins as a bored housewife with designs on neglected husband Paul Newman. Sea Wife (1957) stars Richard Burton at his brooding best as a man desperately seeking to reunite with the woman with whom he was once shipwrecked on an island. Little does he know that she is a nun. Collins is a bit at sea herself in this film's more melodramatic moments, but there are tantalizing glimpses throughout this collection of the prime time diva to come, as in the The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing when a cooly contemptuous Nesbit finally stands up to Thaw's family, or in Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys, when she surprises Newman' in his hotel room, just as his own wife (Joanne Woodward) arrives unannounced at his door. --Donald Liebenson

Customer Reviews

Great character study with plot twists and an unusual and unexpected ending.
Seen Them All
All are nicely transferred to DVD in the original CinemaScope format and,apart from STOPOVER TOKYO, the are good movies.
D. J. Southall
Set aside your preconceptions about Joan Collins, she gives a good no-nonsense performance here.

The Joan Collins Collection bundles together five of the better movies that Joan Collins starred in, from her early days as a contract player with Twentieth Century Fox. Each film is handsomley packed in it's own "slim case" with lobbycard reproductions and bonus collector's booklet.

THE GIRL IN THE RED VELVET SWING (1955). In a role originally meant for Marilyn Monroe, Joan Collins shines as Evelyn Nesbit, the young showgirl who became attached to the scandalous Thaw/White murder trial. Co-starring Farley Granger and Ray Milland.

RALLY 'ROUND THE FLAG BOYS! (1958). Once again, Joan fills a role that was originally intended for another resident studio bombshell, Jayne Mansfield. This briskly-paced romantic comedy stars Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman as a feuding married couple with Collins as the sexpot neighbour.

SEA WIFE (1957). In this evocative melodrama, Collins plays a nun caught up in a terrifying adventure at sea...and contemplating an illicit romance with Richard Burton. Very reminiscent of "Heaven Knows, Mr Allison" (with Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum).

SEVEN THIEVES (1960). Sexy and stylish heist thriller with Edward G. Robinson, Eli Wallach and Rod Steiger. Collins provides the all-important eye-candy.

STOPOVER TOKYO (1957). A tension-fueled espionage thriller with contract players Robert Wagner and Joan Collins in full flight. Some great supporting performances from Edmond O'Brien and Ken Scott.

Each DVD comes packed with informative extra features. THE GIRL IN THE RED VELVET SWING has a featurette entitled "From Ingenue to Icon" which explores Collins' career through the five movies contained in this set. STOPOVER TOKYO also has a fun clip show called "Hollywood Highlights". Scene-specific audio commentary is provided for each movie by Aubrey Solomon.

A great value box set, perfect for classic movie collectors and fans of the magical Miss Joan!

News of the planned release of five more Joan Collins films, previously unavailable on DVD, from 20th Century Fox's Golden CinemaScope era, in a suitably titled Box Collection, is truly great news for all Joan Fans around the world.(Apart from Esther and the King - where a "proper" DVD version of that one is eargerly awaited!!! Also the release of The Wayward Bus please.)

I saw all these films in the Cinema when a very young teenager in the mid to late Fifties and was drawn to this lady long before she became an International TV Icon and Celebrity. As an Actress, Producer, or talented creator of a number of intelligent books and heart-warming essays, to this day, Miss Collins still causes a rise in blood pressure and a genuine sense of "Oh, isn't she great and how nice to see her once more".

I must admit that I was drawn to her when very young, for apart from Land of the Pharoahs, way back in 1955, there was all of her earlier English films including the delightful Our Girl Friday (aka The Adventures of Sadie)plus her important presence in such earlier films as the very dramatic and to-the-point I Believe in You, Turn the Key Softly and Cosh Boy, truthfully dealing with teenage delinquency when such topics were not previously attempted. Joan provided us with an excellent performance in Cosh Boy.

Miss Collins has provided us with a feast of diverse product and entertainment, over an incredibly long and fruitful career ranging from heavy dramatics to tantalising "shockers" of the Seventies, to cheapie Horror Flicks plus adventure and comedy, for which she excels.

All of the five upcoming films were made in simpler and less "in your face" times, with clear dialogue and attention to settings and photography and casting of great supporting players.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE REVIEWER WILLIAM HARE WAS THINKING WHILE WRITING HIS REVIEW. HE HAS REVEALED ALMOST ALL THE PLOT TWISTS OF THIS GEM OF A FILM IN HIS REVIEW.
I DO HOPE PEOPLE USE SOME RESTRAINT OR POST A SPOILER WARNING IN CASE THEY ARE REVEALING SENSITIVE PORTIONS OF A FILM THEY ARE WRITING ABOUT.
MR. HARE, IT IS ENTIRELY POSSIBLE TO REVIEW A FILM WITHOUT RESORTING TO EMOTIONALLY CHARGED REVELATIONS. SHAME ON YOU!!!
BY THE WAY I LOVE THE FILM AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. HEY... IT'S GOT EDWARD G.ROBINSON.. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!

Format: DVD
The same year Frank & Co. took down Vegas in Ocean's Eleven, Edward G. Robinson's crew tried this lesser-known, European caper. Henry Hathaway directed, and it's a very widescreen picture - not easily enjoyed on DVD. But when the heist goes live you'll tax the edge of your seat as you ponder the picture's ingenious hook: "Who will bitch out?" (Not as successful is the de rigueur convention that "crime doesn't pay," and the too neat wrap-up)

With his roughhewn street smarts, Rod Steiger is an odd choice to don a tuxedo and mingle with royalty, but he has a terrific rapport with Robinson, and their scenes are superb. Set aside your preconceptions about Joan Collins, she gives a good no-nonsense performance here. And her beatnik basement, be-bop interpretive dance is actually, pretty sexy and not as nearly as ridiculous as it should be.

What's with the meager commentary track here? Did someone forget to press both "Play" and "record"?
