Editorial Reviews

Billy Bathgate - Two-time Academy Award®-winner Dustin Hoffman (Best Actor: Kramer vs. Kramer - 1979, Rain Man - 1988), Bruce Willis (Red) and Nicole Kidman (Just Go With It) star in the riveting, action-packed gangster epic BILLY BATHGATE. Hungry for a taste of the good life, streetwise New York teenager Billy Bathgate joins the gang of fiery 1930s mobster Dutch Schultz. Billy is seduced by the power, money and glamour of crime and quickly rises up through the ranks and is soon ensnared in a dangerous love triangle that just might get both of them killed.

Blaze - Academy Award®-winner Paul Newman (1986 - Best Actor, The Color Of Money) scorches the screen in this hilarious, sexy comedy from the creator of Bull Durham. Newman stars as a fiery, eccentric governor who falls head over heels in love with the dazzling Blaze Starr (sensational Lolita Davidovich), an innocent New Orleans stripper with a heart of gold. Forced to choose between the office he holds and the woman he loves, he chooses both - igniting an outrageous scandal full of trouble, tenderness, and sexy high-spirited fun! Critically acclaimed, this sizzling tale delivers a most entertaining look at an offbeat love story!

Mill Creek cranks out yet another Miramax/Touchstone double-feature budget Blu-Ray release, this time for two noble cinematic failures: "Billy Bathgate" and "Blaze". Both films are entertaining-yet-flawed fictionalized historical pics that benefit from great casting, good production values and intriguing lead performances. Admittedly, both films are far from perfect, and were expensive box office duds upon their initial release; however, both were unfairly maligned IMO, and are worth checking out on home video.

"Billy Bathgate" is a stately, handsome-looking gangster flick based on the fictional book by E.L. Doctorow, which tells a tale of the infamous gangster "Dutch" Schultz, seen through the eyes of a young protege; For better or worse, it has all the usual tropes that one expects to see in a mob film and little in the way of surprises. Furthermore, with the exception of "Dutch" Schultz, the characters in the film are all drawn pretty shallow. However, with fun casting (including Nicole Kidman, Bruce Willis and Steve Buscemi), an eccentric, menacing lead performance from Hoffman and high-production values (this 1991 film cost $45 million to make), fans of gangster flicks and Hoffman should be entertained.

"Blaze" is the inspired-by-a-true-story tale of quirky Louisiana Governor Earl Long and the far-younger stripper Blaze Starr, who together carried out a very open illicit love affair, much to the chagrin of the disproving public. Very loosely-based on the autobiographical book "Blaze Starr: My Life as Told to Huey Perry", both Paul Newman and Lolita Davidovich have fun with their lead roles, and the chemistry is there between the actors.

I was surprised both movies fit on a single blu-ray disk. The picture quality doesn't seem to be better than DVD quality. There were no extras--at least with Billy Bathgate. I haven't watched Blaze yet. Overall it was a decent value

These two films share several aspects. Neither was a hugh success, both were made by Touchstone back when making films meant for an adult audience was something new to Disney, both have casts that include in major roles both big name and relatively unknown performers, and both deal with 'small' people swept into the world of the large and famous. Too, both deal (albeit a bit loosely) with historical charactors and events.

They also IMO share a quiet excellence.

"Blaze" is the story of stripper Blaze Starr and her relationship with Louisiana Governer Earl Long. "Billy Bathgate" with the entirely fictional Billy interjected into the historical misdoings of NY 1930s gangster Dutch Schultz.

Good films both. Recommended.

A Classic Blaze upgrade to blu-ray was my initial attraction to this frugal purchase, but the off-screen obnoxious DH's performance yielded my respect for BB as well. The terribly underrated Loren Dean is great, and, the real star of this film noir! Catch him starring in Mumford on a great deal triple feature product that also includes Hope Springs and Green Card, three of my favorite romantic underrated classics of the genre.
And now to Blaze, one of the greatest Romantic as well as as political corruption satire films I have ever watched in over 50 years of viewing experience. The charicatures are perfectly cast and executed! Do I have to tell you how great is iconic Paul Newman? LD is super, sexy warm and velvety...the Chinese probable sell adult sized sex dolls of her, but her depth of emotion and projection is star quality, screen popping jewelry!
Transfers, video/audio quality excellent.

Both of these movies are true stories. I gave this CD three stars, because I didn't like the movie Billy Bathgate. I do love the movie Blaze and to see the real Blaze Starr in the movie is wonderful. Blaze left home at an early age, she was only in her middle teens. She had hopes of becoming a singer. She was working in a donut shop when a man came in and got into becoming a stripper. She was working at this one club when she met the governor of La. There was big age difference between the two of them, but they fell in love. They really loved each other. The people around the governor tried everything to stop he found seeing her. I love this movie. I found myself laughing a lot.

I bought this to watch Blaze on blu-ray. I didn't really care about Billy Bathgate. I had never seen either of them though I remember seeing their VHS covers at Blockbuster when I was a child. I passed by them and thought, "Hmmm...I wonder what that one's about." 20 years later, I'm finally watching them and on blu-ray-- the best way to watch them. Blaze is a delightful, fun film to watch with a poignant ending. Billy Bathgate doesn't live up to 5 stars, but its actually a very interesting story and interesting to see Dustin Hoffman as a cold-blooded, desperate gangster.

Two uneven movies for me. Billy Bathgate is one of the better mob films about the 30s but Blaze dragged and was just not to my taste.
The transfers are good but basic, the main problem I found was the subtitles which are all upper case and harder to read. No extras at all. The price is cheap however and therefore a great buy for Billy Bathgate alone.
