But partnership becomes the key to survival when a routine murder investigation leads to all-out, take-no-prisoners, martial-arts-and-machine-guns war with an international heroin ring.

Epic romantic drama based on Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning novel set during the American Civil War. Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) often uses men to get what she wants, but is unable to get the one man she truly desires, Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). She soon meets her match in the roguish Captain Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and in the war itself which destroys the genteel way of life she has always known. With determination she rebuilds her life from the shattered remains the Union Army leaves behind.

Hell's Angels is one of the inspirations behind Martin Scorsese's highly acclaimed Howard Hughes biopic, The Aviator.
Billionaire Howard Hughes produced and directed Hell's Angels, the most expensive film ever made during its time. Hughes spared no expense in capturing an exciting dogfight between RAF and German fighter planes, using 133 pilots in all.

Set during World War I, Hell's Angels is the story of three Oxford buddies: two brothers (Ben Lyon and James Hall) and the German (John Darrow). When all three are conscripted to fight on opposing sides of the war, each is torn between obedience to his country and that of his country and that of his conscience. Jean Harlow is the woman who comes between the three men in this lavish period adventure.

Frank Sinatra stars in Otto Preminger's groundbreaking film which deals with the issue of heroin addiction - a subject matter considered to be shocking in 1955 and one that did not follow the strict Hollywood production code of the time.

Sinatra plays a poker dealer with a drugs problem, who is trying to kick the habit and start a new life as a jazz drummer. He wants to earn enough money to find a cure for his wheelchair bound wife, Zosh (Eleanor Parker), but is tempted away from his marital duties by his enigmatic neighbour (Kim Novak).

They check in to the mansion-like home with its mysterious clock-tower, underground crypt and incredible human chess-board and do their best to solve the murders.
