Michael Redgrave stars in this classic drama based on the novel by Denys Roberts. Percy Brand (Redgrave) is a convicted conman who has been in and out of prison his entire life. Although he has come to terms with his own fate, he cannot bear the thought of his son, Colin (Jeremy Burnham), finding out the truth.

Realistic crime drama with Humphrey Bogart as a crusading District Attorney out to crush the Mob. All his witnesses are being murdered before they can testify, until he interviews Teresa Davis, roommate of the latest victim. When Bogey realises that it was Teresa who witnessed the gangland murder, he races against time to get to her before the Mob. The film makes use of an intricate web of flashbacks attempting to show the (then largely unknown) structure of an organised crime syndicate.
The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him-except Peck, the town's most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defence costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.

He can make airplanes crash, buildings crumble, start raging fires and unleash mighty floods. He believes he possesses the gift of evil, and dangerously demonstrates his power. What at first seems preposterous, soon becomes sickeningly real.
Morlar is able to wreak havoc at will. Brunei desperately wants to stop the next tragedy, but can he kill this man? If released from his mortal confines, how far can the power of his mind roam..?
Directed by Jack Gold from a script by John Briley, The Medusa Touch is a highly-effective, fast paced thriller which ends in a spectacular and spine-chilling climax.
Blackly comic psychodrama from director Robert Altman starring screen legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Jane Hudson (Davis) found fame as child star 'Baby Jane', only to be eclipsed by her sister Blanche (Crawford) when the latter became a Hollywood glamour girl in the 1930s. Blanche's career was brought to an abrupt end by an accident for which Jane was seemingly responsible. Now the two ageing sisters live together in their Hollywood mansion, attended by their maid, Elvira (Maidie Norman). When Jane discovers that Blanche is planning to sell their home and have her put away, she begins a campaign of terror against her wheelchair-bound sibling. Old rivals Davis and Crawford allegedly continued their on-screen conflict after the cameras stopped rolling - Davis kicked Crawford in the head during the recording of one scene, and Crawford retaliated by placing lead weights beneath her skirts for a sequence where Davis was required to drag her across the floor.
Hitchcock-directed comedy thriller. When a young woman is found strangled on the seashore, Robert Tisdall (Derrick De Marney) is quickly identified as the chief suspect in the case.

Together, the unlikely duo set out to find the real killer. An early blueprint for such Hitchcock classics as 'To Catch a Thief' and 'North by Northwest'.
