Editorial Reviews

Robinson Crusoe: VCI is very proud to present this adventure classic from acclaimed director Luis Buñuel, one of the most acclaimed directors in the history of film, in a new special edition. Virtually unseen in any medium for decades and even thought lost by some, VCI's release has been fully restored to its original glory in time for the 50th Anniversary of its U.S. theatrical release. The year is 1659. There is a shipwreck and the sole survivor Robinson Crusoe is washed ashore on a deserted tropical island. Suddenly faced with a hostile and unknown wilderness, he carves out a life for himself with his bare hands. And remarkably, he learns how to survive the maddening absence of human companionship and intense loneliness. Based on Daniel Defoe's immortal classic it is a story about the human spirit's ability to endure what seem insurmountable challenges. Long John Silver: VCI is pleased to present this family/adventure classic, based on the characters created by Robert Lewis Stevenson, in a brand new DVD -- the likes of which have probably not been seen since its initial theatrical release! The film has been faithfully restored to its full widescreen CinemaScope glory with beautiful rich color and detail! The very entertaining soundtrack has likewise been restored from a rare original 4-track recording and remixed to Dolby Digital 5.1. Robert Newton repeats his Treasure Island role as Long John Silver. The ruthless pirate El Toro Mendoza has kidnapped the Governor s beautiful young daughter and captured Jim Hawkins along with her. Around Jim s neck hangs a medallion that will help Long John find more of legendary Captain Flint s buried gold, still waiting to be discovered on Treasure Island. Hannibal: VCI is very pleased to present this epic motion picture, which has been mastered from the original negatives and presented in all its widescreen glory for the first time on home video! Love and war intertwine in this fanciful adaptation of history. The brilliant Carthaginian general, Hannibal (Victor Mature) despises Rome. Fueled by vengeance, he drives his army of elephants through the treacherous, frozen Alps into Italy, crushing anyone who dared to oppose him. As a strategy to break the morale of his enemies, Hannibal captures the beautiful Sylvia of Rome (Rita Gam) so she may see the might of his army and spread the news of impending doom to her people. However, a love grows between the two that will eventually be his undoing. This big-budget spectacle produced by Warner Bros. was shot in Technicolor and SuperCinescope and literally features a cast of thousands... over 4,000 foot-soldiers, 1,500 horsemen, 45 elephants and a vast assortment of war machines were employed in the historic battle of Cannae alone. Bonus Features: Scene Selection, Bios. Hannibal: Anamorphic Widescreen Enhanced for 16x9 Monitors, Photo & Poster Gallery, Original Theatrical Trailer RC: English & Spanish Languages, English Subtitles Optional, Audio Interview with Dan O'Herlihy by Film Critic David Del Valle, Before & After Restoration Video, Excerpt Reproduction of Original Press Book, Selected Filmographies, Photo Gallery, LJS: Original Trailer & TV Spot, Anamorphic Widescreen Enhanced for 16x9 Monitors, Digitally Re-mastered with Before & After Restoration.

VCI Entertainment presents "EPIC ADVENTURES: ROBINSON CRUSOE, HANNIBAL & LONG JOHN SILVER" --- (Dolby digitally remastered) --- It's all here in VCI's very own Treasure Chest of Castaways, Conquerers and Cannon Balls --- Classics as we relive those thrilling days from the early '50s and '60s to exciting action filled stories and tales --- Some of the best high adventures ever to grace the Saturday Matinee Screen --- Just remember triple the thrills, mystery and suspense --- Don't miss any of the features loaded with top notch directors and actors that will leave you wanting more of their adventures --- So pop some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the movie.

First up we have "ROBINSON CRUSOE" (1952) (90 mins/Color) --- (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Under Luis Buñuel (Director / Screenwriter), Oscar Dancigers (Producer), Henry Ehrlich (Producer), Daniel Defoe (Book Author), Philip Roll (Screenwriter), Alex Phillips (Cinematographer), Anthony Collins (Composer (Music Score), Carlos Savage (Editor), Alberto Valenzuela (Editor), Edward FitzGerald (Set Designer) - - - - Irish actor O'Herlihy's well-shaded Oscar-nominated performance never allows the first hour to pall - only with the entrance of Friday is it less absorbing --- Shot in Mexico during the director's long self-imposed exile there, The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe contains quite a few Buñel touches. Most of all, it subverts Defoe's Christian message by showing Crusoe wavering in his faith in religion, Western civilization and colonialism --- A film in which an actor is alone on screen for 60 of the 90 minutes' running time would seem a foolhardy venture, but Buñel overcomes most of the difficulties in this adaptation of Daniel Defoe's classic

the cast includes:
