  • Philo Beddoe is your regular, easygoing, truck-driving guy. He’s also the best bar-room brawler west of the Rockies. And he lives with a 165-pound orang-utan named Clyde. Like other guys, Philo finally falls in love – with a flighty singer who leads him on a screwball chase across the American Southwest.

    Nothing’s in the way except a motorcycle gang, two sneaky off-duty cops and legendary brawler Tank Murdock. Every Which Way but Loose was a change of pace for Clint Eastwood – and it proved to be one of his most popular films. With a soaring country score and a solid supporting cast including Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D’Angelo and the great Ruth Gordon, it’s in every which way possible a grand time for all.

  • The world’s tallest building is skyscraping testimony to ingenuity and innovation. In the hands of “Master of Disaster” film producer Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure), it’s also the world’s tallest matchstick.  

    An all-star cast gathers for this tall story of lofty dimensions: eight Academy Award® nominations and three Oscars®. On the night of the building’s dedication, fire erupts, trapping people on the upper floors… and igniting multiple tales of heroism and loss involving a firefighter (Steve McQueen), an architect (Paul Newman) and others caught in the steel-and-glass inferno (including William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire and Jennifer Jones). With star power, pyrotechnics and suspense in abundance, The Towering Inferno sizzled at box offices worldwide.

  • Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood stars as San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan better known as "Dirty Harry" because of the tough way he pursues criminals in this bare-knuckled action film.

    Investigating the assassinations of crime bosses, Dirty Harry discovers the killers are police who, frustrated by the judicial system, have vowed to rid the city of crime by any means -even killing fellow police officers.

  • For $1,000 a day, vacationers can indulge whims at the theme park called Westworld. They can bust up a bar or bust out of jail, drop in on a brothel or get the drop on a gunslinger. It’s all safe: the park’s lifelike androids are programmed never to harm the customers. But not all droids are getting with the program. 

    Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, Twister) wrote and made his directing debut with this futuristic thriller that heralded moviemaking’s future as the first feature to use digitized images. Richard Benjamin and James Brolin portray pals confronted by a simulated reality turned real. And Yul Brynner is their stalking, spur-jangling nemesis. It’s man vs. machine–in a tomorrow that isn’t big enough for the both of them.

  • Harry Callahan is a tough, streetwise San Francisco cop whom they call Dirty Harry. In this action classic, you’ll see why - and also why Clint Eastwood’s reputation as a premier film star and moviemaker is secure. 

    A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) calling himself Scorpio has killed twice and holds the city ransom with the threat of killing again. Harry will nail him ... one way or the other - not matter what the “system” prescribes. Filming on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of Dirty Harry, a practice continued in its four sequels. Thirty years after its arrival the original remains one of the most gripping police thrillers ever made.

  • “Hotter than Bond. Cooler than Bullitt,” movie posters proclaimed. John Shaft was indeed a shut-your-mouth detective to reckon with, a fact emphasized from the film’s start by Isaac Hayes’ Academy Award® - winning Best Original Song and Oscar® - nominated score. 

    Richard Roundtree plays the smart, tough, confident lead, a private investigator whose hunt for a kidnapped woman puts him in the middle of feuding syndicates. Gordon Parks directs from a screenplay that Ernest Tidyman (that same year’s Oscar® winner for The French Connection) co-scripted from his own novel. John Shaft is an icon of change from an era of change. Today, Shaft still tells it like it is.

  • Alfred Hitchcock directs the legendary Marlene Dietrich and Academy Award winner Jane Wyman in a thriller set in the world of the London stage, a place where few people are who they seem and only two things are real--murder and Stage Fright.

    When witnesses see Jonathan Cooper (Richard Todd) fleeing the scene of a murder, Cooper asks his former girlfriend, Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts student Eve Gill (Wyman), for help. Believing him innocent, she uses her skills at stagecraft to prove the real murderer is chanteuse Charlotte Inwood (Dietrich). Now, as Eve plays a game of cat and mouse with Scotland Yard detective Wil Smith (Michael Wilding), she has no clue of the deadly secret her sleuthing will uncover.
