Hey Babu Riba (1987) - Pop, Glenn, Sacha and Kicha are four vivacious and impetuous teenage boys coming of age in Belgrade, 1953. All four are mad about Glenn Miller, the sport of rowing, American blue jeans and Mariana – their comely, ethereal rowing captain. But when the boys decide to risk everything to help their beloved Esther, it drastically and ironically changes the course of their lives forever!
1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen, Original Serbo-Croatian Stereo Surround
The Crook (1971) - Claude Lelouch and Jean-Louis Trintignant, director and star of the international smash A Man and a Woman, reteam for a deft, witty crime caper filled with thrilling chases, escapes and intrigue.
Trintignant is Simon, a master criminal and prison escapee with two points of business on his mind: to reclaim the $1,000,000 in loot he hid away before his capture and to give police the slip by pretending to fly to Canada. After grabbing the money and indulging in a passion-filled visit with his remarried ex-wife, Simon sits aboard a jet headed for the US with his partner in crime (Charles Gerard), smugly contemplating their escape. But a twist of fate may find the pair in the company of the police one more time!
1.66:1 Letterbox, English and French Mono
Viva Maria! (1965) - France's most famous bombshells, Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau star in this hysterical film from director Louis Malle (My Dinner With Andre) and co-writer Jean-Claude Carriere which satirizes everything from American westerns to revolutions, dictators, the Church, priesthood and even sex itself!
When two women – both named Maria – unwittingly invent the striptease circa 1910, they become such a hit that enthusiastic audiences strip along with them! But when one of the Marias falls for a handsome revolutionary (George Hamilton), she finds that she has unwittingly embroiled the two of them in an armed peasant revolt!
