Product Description

TCM Greatest Classic Films: Best Picture Winners (4FE) (DVD)

CASABLANCA Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) "sticks his neck out for nobody." Then she (Ingrid Bergman) walks back into his life…with her Resistance-leader husband. "Our candidate for the best Hollywood movie of all time" (Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide), directed by Michael Curtiz. MRS. MINIVER One of Hollywood's most memorable spirit-lifters about an idealized England confronting the terror of World War II. Greer Garson (a formidable Oscar-winning title-role performance), Walter Pidgeon and Teresa Wright star; William Wyler directs. GIGI Thank heaven for the bubbly fun and glorious Lerner and Loewe music! Gigi (Leslie Caron) goes from girlishness to glamour and desires more than the lush life of suitor Louis Jourdan. With Maurice Chevalier and Hermione Gingold. AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Gene Kelly plays an ex-GI who loves Paris and an alluring (but engaged) shop clerk (Leslie Caron in her beguiling screen debut). Dazzling dances and a stunning ballet finale are spun around songs and music by the Gershwins.

Turner Classic Movies' Greatest Classic Films Collection: Best Picture Winners collects four movies on two double-sided discs, with top picture quality and the bonus features that appeared on disc 1 when three of those films were released on two-disc sets. Often cited as the best movie of all time, Casablanca (1942) pairs the tragic lovers Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman on the eve of World War II, and the movie is accompanied by commentary tracks from Rogert Ebert and from historian Rudy Behlmer and an introduction by Lauren Bacall. Also taking place during the war is Mrs. Miniver (1942), starring Oscar winner Greer Garson as a woman on the British homefront. Bonus features are Garson at the Academy Awards, a photo gallery, and two shorts. Together on the second disc are two famous MGM musicals directed by Vincente Minnelli: Gigi (1958), starring Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier, Hermione Gingold, and Louis Jordan, and An American in Paris (1951), starring Gene Kelly, Caron, Oscar Levant, and Georges Guetary in a Gershwin extravaganza. Bonus features for the movies include commentary tracks by historian Jeanine Basinger with contributions by Caron, and by host Patricia Ward intercut with vintage interviews of Kelly, Minnelli, and others, as well as two shorts and two cartoons. --David Horiuchi

I am 80 years old and saw these films when they were first released. In an age when there were no VCRs, much less DVDs, a film came your way, you saw it and from then on they were memories. These films were considered classics then and seeing them again I would say that they stand up well against current stuff. Different acting style, true, but the dramatic impact and the story lines are as good as any. It is refreshing to see the dancing in American... and Gigi. Is today's stuff really more energetic? The old days were so much more graceful - tell me about Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astair. The great relief? I cannot imagine Mrs. Minniver using the indecent language that we hear in too many films these days. How refreshing!!!

It is such a disappointment to not be able to obtain the DVD edition of Mrs. Miniver yet. This is a film I shared with my granddaughter several years ago and is a warm memory for her.
It was my pleasure and honor to meet Greer Garson at the end of her life at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. It was her birthday and our department was responsible for the setting up of the room and the refreshments. I was to uncork the champagne. At 5:30pm, Mrs. Fogelson (her married name) was wheeled into the room, absolutely radiant at the age of 92, wearing a brocade gown that matched the beauty of her green eyes. The celebration was short, in keeping with her frail condition, but she was such a grand lady, just like her presentation of Mrs. Miniver. Frail, yet regal. Queenlike, yet personable.
After her party, I took flowers to her room. She had already been tucked back into bed, but still so pretty, though tired. I went to her bed and she held out her hand to me. She held my hand with both of hers, and I felt as though I was the most important person she had ever met.
Evertime I watch the movie, Mrs. Miniver, I am transported back to that day by her bed after her birthday. She lived only two more years, but everyone remembered her with such love and respect. I treasure having been given the very last glossy of her portfolio.
Rest in peace, beloved Mrs. Miniver.

The most important picture of World War II was an intensely moving drama about a middle class British family and its strong matriarch standing up against the tragedies and terrors of the onset of World War II. The movie was "Mrs. Miniver".
"Mrs. Miniver" remains today one of the most powerful and compelling films ever made about the hardships of war even with the lack of a single battle scene. Like "Gone With the Wind", "Mrs. Miniver"'s greatness lies in its revealing look of the individuals affected by a war. Making the film an even greater emotional experience is the fact that this film was made just at the time it revolves around, during the onset of WWII, when the outcome of the war was still uncertain and the future of the world was hanging in the balance.
In the title role of the film, Greer Garson is radiant, willful, warm and determined in the role of Kay Miniver, a British housewife who must keep her head on the homefront with her two young children while her husband (Walter Pidgeon) and son (Richard Ney) defend their country at the onset of World War II. Through her faith, her intelligence, and her love, Kay manages to hold her family together even as England collapses under the powerful effects of an unstoppable war. The picture's ending on a strong note of hope is that lingering optimisim which was the hope of audiences during WWII... that one day, there would be peace.
Garson won an Academy Award for her brilliant portrayal, and rightly so, for she invests her scenes with a genuine determination and will: In one scene, she holds a German soldier at bay with a gun in her kitchen as her children sleep upstairs.

Format: DVD
This TCM/Warners classic movie collection will be a great space-saving alternative for those people whose DVD collections are getting slightly out of control...like me! This set comprises four all-time classic films that won the coveted 'Best Picture' Academy Award in their respective years.

MRS MINIVER: Greer Garson is a portrait of courage under fire in this stirring wartime drama, beautifully directed by William Wyler and co-starring Walter Pidgeon and Teresa Wright. Special Features: Greer Garson Academy Awards speech footage, shorts "Mr. Blabbermouth" and "For the Common Defense", photo gallery and trailer.

CASABLANCA: Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in their iconic roles of Rick and Ilsa, two former lovers who are thrown together again in wartime Casablanca. You must remember this! Special Features: audio commentary by Rudy Behlmer, audio commentary by Roger Ebert, all-new introduction hosted by Lauren Bacall.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS: Gene Kelly's unmatched dance talents, the glowing screen debut of Leslie Caron and the sensitive direction of Vincente Minnelli combine in this breathtaking musical classic. Special Features: audio commentary hosted by Patricia Ward Kelly, shorts "Paris on Parade" and "Symphony in Slang", and trailer.

GIGI: The final hurrah of the grand old MGM musical, reuniting star Leslie Caron and director Vincente Minnelli in an opulent adaptation of Colette's famous novella. Special Features: audio commentary by Jeanine Basinger and Leslie Caron, shorts "The Million Dollar Nickel" and "The Vanishing Duck", and trailer.
