French Connection 1 and 2
This two disc set by MGM packs both French Connection(released Oct/71) and French Connection Two(released May/75) into one set.MGM has released alot of these two and four pack movies in this same style of holder,without giving us the specs of the movies we're watching(see below).This is just plain sloppy and cheap packaging,and puts off those with even a modicum of savvy from buying them;never a good PR strategy.This set is a good buy considering what you get,though.The first film of course is the one you want to have,with FC2 coming in a sorry second.

Royal Wedding/Belle of New Yor DVD ~ Fred Astaire
This release by MGM of two early /50s films starring THE legendary man of dance Fred Astaire,offers up his two successively made projects;one good the other not so good.However both are in brilliant technicolour and quite pleasing to the eye.
Royal Wedding(released in Mar/51)stars Fred as Tom Bowen and Jane Powell as his sister Ellen.They are a popular sister and brother act with the sister being kind of a male magnet.When the two get a chance to take their show to the London stage,they jump at it.While in London Ellen succumbs to a little too much male extra circular actvitiy with an English Lord Brindale(Peter Lawford);much to the chagrin of her brother.However the love bug… Read more
