Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton star in this Academy Award-winning, epic retelling of the life and loves of the Egyptian queen. Desperate to hold onto her throne in the face of Roman expansion, Cleopatra (Taylor) employs all her charms in an attempt to secure an alliance with Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison). When Caesar is subsequently murdered, however, a vulnerable Cleopatra quickly turns her affections to popular Roman general Mark Antony (Burton). But although the relationship initially fares well, it's not long before the once proud general, now emasculated by the queen's charms, is reduced to a shadow of his former self that presages the doomed lovers' ultimate fate.

Among those seeking refuge on the lifeboat are fashion journalist Connie Porthead (Tallulah Bankhead), tycoon Rittenhouse (Henry Hull), seaman Kovak (John Hodiak), injured stoker Gus (William Bendix), radio operator Stanley Garrett (Hume Cronyn) and a nurse, Alice (Mary Anderson). Their numbers are swelled further when a German, Willy (Walter Slezak), from the U-Boat responsible for the bombing is also taken on board.

Hitchcock was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the film, along with writer John Steinbeck.

...one of the best books I have read in a long time, an undogmatic manifesto that's anarchistic, funny, and mad. It's so good I'm grateful to it, didn't want it to end. Everything about this book -- its energy, fierce comic wisdom, its stuffed and muscled lines -- fills me with wonder ...the poems are willfully raw and honest, compelled by defiance, joy, anger and a wild white-light hope ...I have never read a book that took Whitman further and took me, exhilarated, out of myself and into that traffic jam, the mess of humanity. -- Margaret Sweatman, Books in Canada

Box set featuring nine action movies. In 'Skinheads' (1989) a group of Los Angeles neo-nazis are forced to move to North California when one of them shoots a black man. When they arrive in the small town they continue on their path of hatred, harrassment and destruction until they come across two resilient college kids determined to stop the skinheads' reign of violence. When a Hollywood film crew travel to shoot on an isolated desert location they are attacked by CIA-backed mercenaries. At first the film people fight back using their special effects equipment, but as the carnage mounts they sustain heavy losses, and soon the director's daughter is the only one still alive. She then teams up with one of the embittered mercenaries to better her chances of surviving. 'Hiroshima' (1990) paints a dramatic account of the race to develop the atomic bomb, the ethics and politics behind it, and the events which led to its use at the end of World War 2. In 'Emperor' (1988), Tony (Alex D'Andrea) is a Bronx street hustler, an old-fashioned, low-level operator who finds himself forced off his turf by vicious crime boss Falco (Anthony Gioia). Teaming up with an ex-con and sultry songstress, he learns a few things about the way of the world and makes an attempt to get back on the right side of the wrong side of the tracks - taking the fight back to Falco. In 'South Bronx' (1985), two young children are being brutally exploited as their foster home moonlights as the headquarters for one of the city's largest pornography rings. Amazingly, the two children escape to the streets, where they enlist the help of an undercover cop (Mario Van Peebles) and his partner to capture the porn king and his accomplices. In 'The Swap' (1969) Robert DeNiro plays Sammy Nicoletti, an adult film director who is murdered. His brother Vito (Anthony Charnota) vows to find the killer and avenge Sammy's death. When Vito is released from prison he begins his own investigation, encountering deceit and blackmail. The final days of Sammy's life unfold from a party on Long Island back to the big city. As Vito draws nearer to the truth, his own life hangs precariously in the balance. In 'Death Collector' (1975) it's 'all in the family' for a young, streetwise hood as he becomes a collector for the mob. He quickly rises, run by rung, up the ladder of the underworld in this violent crime saga. Blaxploitation legend Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson stars in 'Black Cobra' (1987). When fashion photographer Elys Trumbo (Eva Grimaldi) sees one of her neighbours being murdered by a member of the Black Cobras, a psychopathic motorcycle gang, she manages to catch the killer's face on film. The Cobras' leader comes after her, but luckily tough police sergeant Malone (Williamson) has been appointed to protect her. In 'Born To Win' (1971), George Segal stars as as an ex-hairdresser who struggles to support his expensive drug habit and to avoid arrest, turns 'narc', informing on his fellow junkies. Eventually Segal's sense of self-hatred threatens to overwhelm him. In 'Revenge' (1988), the gun-crazy right-wing terrorist group 'Strike Force' have set their sights on the deadly NK-2, which is a very large weapon indeed, and will do everything in their power to get hold of it. Vietnam vet Jason Shepherd (Roger Rodd) is approached with the job of tracking down these vicious killers and preventing them from doing any more damage. He accepts the job, but when the group gun down two of his most loyal friends, it suddenly becomes personal.

Let's Face It - Writing and Artwork from PARC (Paperback): Hume Cronyn Let's Face It - Writing and Artwork from PARC (Paperback)
Hume Cronyn
R538 Discovery Miles 5 380 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This is a very, very special volume of creative work. It is a collection of writing and art originating at PARC, a community centre that offers a safe haven from the harsh realities of the street and the intolerable conditions of substandard boarding houses. PARC's membership includes people who are marginalized, socially-isolated, homeless, suffering addictions, new immigrants, the working poor and the poverty-stricken. But PARC is more. As one member states: I appreciate that PARC feeds me when I can't make ends meet, but, more important, I come to PARC for spiritual sustenance. Every city has its homeless, socially-isolated, marginalized people. What is remarkable about PARC in Toronto is that it has become a hub of astonishing creative energy and an incubator of literary and artistic talent. Let's Face It documents and presents publicly that talent. For over twenty years now Hume Cronyn has been at the center of that literary and artistic activity. He has nurtured, inspired, assisted, drawn out, the many creative efforts of the PARC community. His workshops, open readings and his presence have become an indelible feature of the PARC scene. He states it best: Workshop: so full of life, so full of feeling, laughter, bantering, buzzing, burping, writing, reading, listening, a mountainful of trust. We enter the room, dry bumbling sticks. We leave the room, ho we leave the room as if we were floating, the Red Sea has parted for us, we ooze from every pore the aura of having created. - Hume Cronyn, PARC Writing Room"
