Triple bill of classic WWII film dramas. In 'The Longest Day' (1962) an all-star international cast heads the tale of the Allied Landings in Normandy in 1944. Events are seen from various points of view, including the Germans', in an epic and spectacular style. Along with the 43 international stars, the film used 23,000 Allied troops and, despite costing over $10 million to make, it has now become one of the most successful films of its genre. John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and Henry Fonda head the cast. 'A Bridge Too Far' (1977) is Richard Attenborough's similarly star-studded account of the failed 1944 Arnheim assault. Dirk Bogarde, James Caan, Robert Redford and Sean Connery are among those battling against insurmountable odds - foul weather, bad luck, negligence on the part of intelligence officers - to secure one of the bridges essential to the Allied advance into Germany. Gene Hackman, Michael Caine and Anthony Hopkins also star. The life and times of America's most famous modern general, George Patton (George C. Scott), are recreated in 'Patton' (1970) which focuses on the general's controversial exploits during the Second World War, where he eventually gave up command of the Seventh Army after slapping a soldier and accusing him of being a coward.

This box set contains all five films in the 'Planet of the Apes' series. In the original film, a group of Earth astronauts, led by Colonel George Taylor (Charlton Heston), are plunged nearly two thousand years into the future after passing through a time distortion. They crash land on a strange planet, where mute humans are treated as slaves by intelligent apes. In 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes', NASA send astronaut Brent (James Franciscus) on a rescue mission when Taylor's crew fail to return to Earth. Like Taylor, he is catapulted through time to the 'Ape' planet, where Taylor is now being held captive in the Forbidden Zone, an underground society whose telepathic mutant inhabitants dedicate their lives to their 'God': an atomic warhead. In 'Escape from the Planet of the Apes', the sympathetic chimps of the first two films, Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall), escape the nuclear devastation of the Earth by travelling back in time in Taylor's spaceship, arriving in Los Angeles in the year 1973. They are initially held in captivity in a zoo, but when they prove their intelligence they are released and hailed as celebrities. In 'Conquest of the Planet of the Apes', the year is now 1991. Following a plague which wiped out all cats and dogs, apes have been adopted as pets by humans, but when Zira and Cornelius' son Caesar (Roddy McDowall) sees them being treated as slaves, he leads his brother simians in rebellion against their overlords. 'Battle for the Planet of the Apes' opens in 2670 with the ape Lawgiver (John Huston) relating how, following the 1991 rebellion, mankind embarked on a terrible nuclear war. In the devastation which followed, Caesar and the apes seized control, ruling benevolently over the human survivors, and working to rebuild society. However, civil war was being fermented by ambitious gorilla general Aldo (Claude Akins). Also included is previously unseen footage and interviews with cast and crew members.

In 'Ask A Policeman' (1939), the police force of crime-free Turnbotham Round consists of Sergeant Dudfoot (Hay) and officers Harbottle (Moore Marriott) and Albert (Graham Moffatt). When the commissioner suggests that they are no longer neccessary, they set about engineering a crime wave in the village, so that they can be seen to be solving it. Their attempts fail, until they stumble upon a genuine case of smuggling. In 'Boys Will be Boys' (1935), prison teacher Dr Smart-Alec (Hay) steps up the career ladder to become headmaster of Narkover public school, but his innate stupidity soon begins to create havoc.

In 'Oh, Mr Porter!', bungling (1937), station master William Porter (Hay) is appointed to the run down station of Buggleskelly in Ireland by the resentful Superintendent.

His new pupils are less than receptive, and when the commander of the local base goes down with malaria he takes on his duties as well. Aided by the crew of the boat on which he arrived (Marriott and Moffatt), he sets about collecting taxes from the locals, with hilarious results. In 'Where There's a Will' (1936), alcoholic lawyer Benjamin Stubbins (Hay) is deep in debt. He finds himself being used by a gang of crooks to pull off a bank robbery, but manages to foil their scheme. In 'Good Morning Boys' (1937), the headmaster of St Michael's school Dr Benjamin Twist (Hay) finds himself in hot water after a government inspection. He is asked to resign unless he can prove that his educational methods work, and so when he comes into possession of the French paper, he does not need much coaxing before showing it to his students. The boys pass with honours, but a congratulatory trip to Paris goes awry when they and Twist inadvertently help to steal the Mona Lisa. In 'Hey! Hey! USA' (1938), Dr Benjamin Twist (Hay) is invited to act as tutor to the son of a millionaire in the United States of America, after posing as a famous professor. Twist discovers that two gangs of villains are out to kidnap his precocious young pupil, Bernie Schultz. Finally, in 'Windbag the Sailor' (1936), Ben Cutlet (Hay) is a bogus old sea dog who finds himself tricked into taking command of an unseaworthy vessel. Its owners intend to sink the ship and cash in the insurance. When Cutlet's crew mutiny, he is forced to escape with cabin boy Albert (Moffatt) and the aged Harbottle (Marriott).

As tensions rise, it may only take a single spark to trigger an explosive war that will pit the humans against the apes in an all-out battle for survival...

Collection of three films adapted from Agatha Christie's novels following the Belgian sleuth. In 'Murder On the Orient Express' (1974), while heading into heavy weather, the Orient Express gets stuck in the snow and overnight one of the passengers - the millionaire Ratchett (Richard Widmark) - is repeatedly stabbed to death.

In 'Death On the Nile' (1978) a rich heiress is murdered aboard a steamship travelling down the Nile.

The film also stars Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury and David Niven. Finally, in 'Evil Under the Sun' (1982), when beautiful socialite Arlena Marshall (Diana Rigg) is found strangled on a Mediterranean island, there is no shortage of suspects for Poirot (Ustinov) to eliminate from his enquiries.

Collection of four classic film dramas starring Elizabeth Taylor. In 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' (1966), adapted from Edward Albee's controversial stage play, George (Richard Burton) is a foul-mouthed, drunken university professor married for two decades to the equally foul-mouthed, drunken Martha (Taylor), whose father is the president of George's college. When younger married couple Nick (George Segal) and Honey (Sandy Dennis) are invited round for a nightcap, they witness a marathon of bickering and verbal abuse. The film won five Oscars, including Best Actress for Elizabeth Taylor and Best Supporting Actress for Sandy Dennis. 'Cat On a Hot Tin Roof' (1958), based on the Tennesse Williams play, follows the events which transpire one long, hot Southern evening when the family of plantation patriarch Big Daddy (Burl Ives) gathers to celebrate his birthday. Both of the big man's sons are there for the party, but only one of them - Gooper (Jack Carson) - is keen to inherit the family fortune; the other, Brick (Paul Newman), a former high school athlete who now drinks constantly and refuses to sleep with his wife, Maggie (Taylor), couldn't care less. Nevertheless, Maggie would like to see some of the money, believing that it might offer some recompense for the coldness of her marriage, and Big Mama (Judith Anderson), the boys' mother, has always favoured Brick out of the two. As the night wears on, the temperature rises, skeletons emerge from closets, and the family tensions get closer and closer to breaking point. 'Giant' (1956) follows Bick Benedict (Rock Hudson), a Texas cattle baron who takes a non-Texan wife, Leslie (Taylor). The story traces two generations of his family, alongside the life of disreputable ranch-hand Jett Rink (James Dean), who strikes it rich on an oil well and falls in love with Leslie. Director George Stevens won an Oscar for his work, and the film garnered nine more nominations, including one for James Dean, who was killed in a car crash soon after filming. In 'Lassie Come Home' (1943) the Carraclough family are struggling financially and have no choice but to sell their pet collie, Lassie. Her new owner's granddaughter, Priscilla (Taylor), realises how unhappy Lassie is away from her family and helps her to escape so she can begin her long journey home.
