Director Richard Thorpe (1896-1991) enjoyed a long Hollywood career beginning with a long string of low-budget Western silents. At MGM in the 1930s, he began directing more important films, including the classic thriller Night Must Fall (1937), and several of the studio's popular Tarzan series with Johnny Weissmuller. Big-budget success awaited Thorpe with Ivanhoe (1952) and The Prisoner of Zenda (1952), the Dean Martin comedy Ten Thousand Bedrooms (1957), and the Elvis Presley rock 'n' roll classics Jailhouse Rock (1957) and Fun in Acapulco (1963).
As a special bonus, this DVD also includes an episode of "The Loretta Young Show," the popular dramatic anthology series that ran on NBC from 1953-1961.
