Sony Choice Releases Harryhausen Classic

043396478152  First Men in the Moon  1964  The film begins with a team of United Nations astronauts planning an upcoming moon mission. The astronauts are both confused and intrigued by a man (Edward Judd) who claims he, his fiancée and a scientist journeyed to the moon 65 years ago and were attacked by “Selenites,” grotesque, human-like ant forms that live in immense crystal caverns. Now it’s up to the U.N. team to attempt a lunar landing that could be more horrifying than ever believed possible. Directed by Nathan Juran (Attack of the 50-Foot Woman), FIRST MEN IN THE MOON also stars Martha Hyer and Lionel Jeffries.  Peter Finch; Martha Hyer; Lionel Jeffries; Edward Judd; Hugh McDermott; Marne Maitland; Miles Malleson; Erik Chitty; Betty McDowall; Laurence Herder; Gladys Henson; Peter Finch 

043396478169  Avalon  1990  From the Academy Award® winning director of BUGSY, AVALON is based loosely on Barry Levinson’s own family and their real experiences emigrating to Baltimore in the early 20th century from Eastern Europe. The third in Levinson’s group of “Baltimore” chronicles, which include DINER and TIN MEN, AVALON.   Armin Mueller-Stahl; Elizabeth Perkins; Joan Plowright; Aidan Quinn; Elijah Wood; Grant Gelt; Mindy Loren Isenstein

043396478176  Once a Thief    1991  Action film maestro John Woo (Mission: Impossible 2, Windtalkers) directs this lightning-paced caper of stolen art and broken hearts starring Chow Yun-Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Over-the-top action sequences and mind-blowing gunplay get mixed with comedy and romance in this thrilling crowd-pleaser. Joe (Chow), Jim (Leslie Cheung, Happy Together) and Cherie (Cherie Chung) have been partners in crime ever since their childhoods spent on the streets stealing to survive. Now world-class art thieves, their relationships and lives are put on the line when they agree to one last mission: steal a multi-million dollar painting for a mysterious client who’s bent on revenge. Chow Yun Fat; Leslie Cheung; Kenneth Tsang
043396478244  Bloodhounds of Broadway 1989  It was New Year’s Eve in New York City, 1928.  The champagne was cold, the dolls were red-hot and everyone who was anyone was there.  Shimmy on down to the speakeasy run by jazz-baby Miss Mussou (Anita Morris), where earnest Lovey Lou (Jennifer Grey) and dishy Hortense Hathaway (Madonna) sing and dance on the hearts of two-timin’ pony player Regret (Matt Dillon) and hapless Feet Samuels (Randy Quaid), a lumbering oaf with a heart o’ gold who’s sold it, along with the rest of his body, to a mad doctor determined to collect at midnight.  And make an appearance at the home of feather-headed socialite Harriet MacKyle (Julie Hagerty), whose glittering New Year’s bash really takes flight with an untimely aviary assassination perpetrated by suave bootlegger Handsome Jack (Esai Morales).  Add a handful of reluctant gangsters, an assortment of unflappable flappers and a philandering gambler, and you’ve got a comic celebration of the infamous night when the underworld met the upper crust – and the laughs were strictly on the house! Matt Dillon; Jennifer Grey; Julie Hagerty; Rutger Hauer; Esai Morales; Randy Quaid;  Madonna; Anita Morris; Madonna Joy
