Description & Features+
"North By Northwest": Cary Grant teams with director Alfred Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this superlative espionage caper judged one of the American Film Institute's Top-100 American Films and spruced up with a new digital transfer and remixed Dolby Digital Stereo. Grant plays a Manhattan advertising executive plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and in another signature set piece, crop-dusted. He also holds on for dear life from the facial features of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore (back lot sets were used). But don't expect the Master of Suspense to leave the star or audience hanging. "Lethal Weapon": Written by Shane Black and directed by Richard Donner, "Lethal Weapon" is the thrill-packed story of two Vietnam vets-turned-cops (Mel Gibson and Danny Glover) who have just one thing in common: both hate to work with partners. But their partnership becomes key to their survival when a routine murder investigation leads to an all-out, take-no-prisoners, martial-arts-and-machine-guns war with an international heroin ring. Fierce, fast and frequently funny, it fires off round after round of can't-miss entertainment. "The Fugitive": Catch him if you can. "The Fugitive" is on the run! Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through the breathless manhunt movie inspired by the classic TV series. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who committed the crime. Jones (the 1993 Academy Award(R), Golden Globe(R) and Los Angeles Film Critics Award winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. marshal. They are hunted and hunter. And as directed by Andrew Davis ("Under Siege"), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out. "The Shawshank Redemption": A prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder spends many years in the Shawshank prison. He is befriended by a convict who knows the ropes and helps him to cope with the frightening realities of prison life. "L.A. Confidential": Director Curtis Hanson and a terrific cast serve up a "thrilling tale of police corruption and Hollywood glamour" (Marshall Fine, Gannett Newspapers) in this film of James Ellroy's novel. Three cops (Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce), a call girl (Kim Basinger), a mysterious millionaire (David Strathairn), a tabloid journalist (Danny DeVito) and the Chief of Detectives (James Cromwell) fuel a plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance and humor. The film captured 1997 Academy Awards(R) for Best Supporting Actress (Basinger) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Brian Helgeland and Curtis Hanson).
