Overall Fox did a great job on this collection and putting these great films on it and is a collection I would recommend.
Some big surprises, for me, were What a Way to Go, a strange black comedy with Shirley MacLaine, Paul Newman, Mitchum, Gene Kelly, Dean Martin, Dick Van Dyke et al. Edith Head was given $500,000 in 1963 to do the costumes and they are beyond belief. Shirley and Gene Kelly perform a dance number that stunned me.
Thunder Road is even better than I remembered, The Way West, with Kirk Douglas and Richard Widmark is a western I somehow never saw, and is surprisingly good.
Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison, with Mitchum as a shipwrecked Marine and Deborah Kerr as a nun, find themselves on a tropical isle in the pacific in WWII. Their simmering chemistry is something missing from today's films.
There isn't a bad film in the whole collection and the quality is very high in both picture and sound.
For the money, you cannot miss with this collection.
Thunder Road by itself is selling for over $90.
As a kid I ate up movie "Thunder Road" and I always a Dad like the one he portrayed in "Home From The Hill"
which was sadly left out of this collection. You should add this to your home library, if your a Robert Mitchum fan.
HEAVEN KNOWS Mr ALLISON-- A MARINE CORPORAL (MITCHHUM) GETS STRANDED IN A SOUTH SEAS ISLAND WITH A NUN (KERR) DURING WWII.
THE ENEMY BELOW: A WWII CAT AND MOUSE STORY ABOUT A U-BOAT CAPTAIN (CURT JURGANS) AND A US DESTROYER CAPTAIN (ROBERT MITCHUM). A NICE MOVIE...
THUNDER ROAD: THRILLER ABOUT A BOOTLEGGER...
I COULD GO ON AND ON. THEY ARE ALL GOOD.
