MGM Film Noir in July

Fox and MGM Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of four classic black-and-white film noir crime dramas on 10th July 2007. One of the most critically acclaimed noir films of all time, director Fritz Lang tells the story of a bored middle-aged professor who becomes tragically obsessed with the portrait of a woman in a shop window in The Woman In The Window, available for the first time on Region 1 DVD and starring film noir legend Edward G. Robinson (Double Indemnity, House of Strangers) and Joan Bennett (She Wanted A Millionaire, Mississippi Gambler). Also available for the first time on R1 DVD, A Bullet For Joey finds Robinson as a Canadian inspector involved in a classic game of cat and mouse with a deported American gangster (George Raft, Ocean’s Eleven, Some Like It Hot), unlocking a web of mystery from behind the Iron Curtain. Director and star Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil) plays a man hiding a dangerous secret in a small Connecticut town whose past may be exposed by an investigator (Robinson) from the War Crimes Commission in The Stranger. Exposing the bullet-scarred face of a brutal city’s underworld, Kansas City Confidential stars screen siren Coleen Gray (Kiss of Death, Nightmare Alley), classic movie villain Lee Van Cleef (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, For A Few Dollars More) and John Payne (The Razor’s Edge, Miracle on 34th Street) as an out of luck ex GI framed for a robbery who must follow the clues to prove his innocence.

Retail is $19.98 SRP each. There are no extras.
