Product Description

The STANLEY KRAMER FILM COLLECTION highlights five movies that exemplify the issues and emotions that drove Kramer, a pioneering independent producer who made nearly forty films in the 1950s and 1960s. This new six-DVD boxed set includes five movies (GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, SHIP OF FOOLS, THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING, THE WILD ONE, and THE 5,000 FINGERS OF DR. T), some of which have never been available on DVD before. The sixth DVD is a supplemental disc to DINNER in celebration of the movie's 40th anniversary and only available in this collection. Mr. Kramer directed two of these movies himself. The Collection comes in a sturdy box. The DVDs sit together on three double-disc trays that fold together to form a "book," and a leaf in the book is give for each set of two DVDs. The book itself is decorated with photos and lists the special features on each disc. When folded, it fits inside an outer slipcase. There is also a single-sheet insert that has the film summaries and a special note about Stanley Kramer from his widow Karen Kramer (married from 1966 until his death in 2001). These are all brand-new packages redesigned to fit the box and filled with extra features. Each disc includes a short but sweet video intro by Mrs. Kramer which sets the scene for the movie, gives a small amount of background info and notes where it appeared in Kramer's career history. Each disc also has extra supplemental material specific to that particular movie.

I ordered this collection of Stanley Kubrick films specifically for the film "Ship of Fools" which I saw many years ago and have always wanted in my film collection. Unfortunately, it was always much to expensive to purchase, until now! When I saw this Collection at Amazon.ca, I realized it was a great price for the 5 Kubrick films included and purchased it immediately. Needless to say, I am very pleased with this purchase - thank you very much, Amazon! Ive been a very satisfied customer for a long time and will continue to be!

HASH(0xa3437f24) out of 5 stars Kramer vs Kramer June 25 2009
By Phoebe Stogstill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I ordered this Stanley Kramer collection because it had a copy of "The Member of the Wedding" on it--one of my favorite movies, and it is almost impossible to get a copy of this as a single. It is a fantastic collection and I have seen all of the movies before, but of course I had to view "Member" first and then "Ship of Fools." The actors that stand out in this collection are Tracy and Hepburn plus Poitier in "Guess," Marlon Brando in "Wild," Vivien Leigh in "Ship" with equally fine performances by Lee Marvin and Michael Dunne, and of course Julie Harris and Ethyl Waters in "Member." The most stellar performance of the whole pack is the young Brandon de Wilde in "Member." If it were re-windable, I could re-wind and watch this young man over and over and over. Too bad we lost this actor, although his skill seemed to disappate with maturity. The odd movie in this pack is the "1000 Fingers." It is a heroic undertaking, the making of this movie, but instead of being the surrealistic masterpiece it could have been, the sets and props seem amateurish. I must review this one several more times to fully appreciate it--the acting by Tommy Rettig is quite good--and I may finally decide that I love it BECAUSE of its faults, instead of in spite of them. (I have given more detailed reviews of the individual movies, previously) Stanley Kramer was a genius as displayed here on celuloid.

HASH(0xa2f70b7c) out of 5 stars Finally got "The Member of the Wedding"! Jan. 22 2012
By K. Winborne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have been looking for The Member of the Wedding for years after seeing it on TV and only saw the book until last week. I love this movie I am actually watching it right now. I think I got a great deal 5 movies for $18.26!!! You can't beat that. Even if the other movies aren't good to get The Member for that price is a steal!

HASH(0xa2d41654) out of 5 stars Stanley Kramer Film Collection July 29 2012
By Rick Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of movies ranging from 1952-1967. The cover case is cardboard and is very sturdy and the case that holds the disks might be acceptable to damage if you drop it, but that is also made good too. There are a total of 5 DVD and 1 bonus disk, so all movies have there on disk and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" DVD is the 40th Anniversary Edition disk. The menus for the DVD look really good with the same theme as the cover of this collection.

These movies star; Marlon Brando, Spencer Tracy, Sydney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Ethel Waters, George Segal, Julie Harris, Brandon de Wilde, Mary Murphy, Peter Lind Hayes, Jose Ferrer, Lee Marvin, plus others. "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and "The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T" are in color. "Guess Who's..." and "Ship of Fools" are in Widescreen format (16:9) and the rest are fullscreen.

Overall this is a must have for anyone adding to their collection or fans of these actors/actress'.

HASH(0xa32a6d68) out of 5 stars Frankie yearns to be a member of something...anything! Sept. 16 2013
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
My piekna zona recently asked me to buy her a copy of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner so I conveniently bought this Stanley Kramer Collection (at a nice price) so I could also have a copy of The Member of the Wedding, which is still not sold individually.

The Member of the Wedding (1952) was directed by Fred Zinnemann and stars Broadway legend, Julie Harris, in her film debut. Carson McCullers' The Member of the Wedding was first published in 1946. A successful theatrical adaptation opened on Broadway in 1950 starring Harris, Ethel Waters, and Brandon deWilde who then reprised their roles in this film.

Frankie Adams (Harris) is a lonely twelve-year-old in a Southern town. She has no friends and spends all of her time with the family's Black housemaid, Berenice (Waters), and her young cousin, John Henry (deWilde), who lives next door. Frankie deeply yearns to make a connection, to find the "we of me," and decides she will leave town with her newlywed brother and his wife. Her plans go terribly awry and Frankie must adapt.

This is a deeply moving story of loneliness and connection. Many aspects of McCullers' own life are captured in the story. Julie Harris, who was twenty-five-years-old at the time of the filming, gives a remarkable, although overstated, performance that earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination. Waters is superb. Zinneman's direction is solid and the Alex North score is quite good.

The Member of the Wedding is a wonderful adaptation of the novel and I'm thrilled to finally have a copy on DVD. I was very much looking forward to the commentary by McCullers' biographer, Virginia Spencer Carr (The Lonely Hunter), but was disappointed. Carr offers only scant insight into McCullers, the novel, and the film. A few of her comments are even erroneous (e.g., the wedding was to take place at Winter Hill - the wedding takes place at Winter Hill in the novel but in the film the ceremony takes place at Frankie's house). However, we must keep in mind the late Professor Carr recorded her commentary while in her late-seventies.

Trivia alert: Hugh Beaumont, who portrays the wedding minister in an uncredited role, would later star in the successful television series, Leave it to Beaver (1957-1963).
