  • Singing with the showbiz sass of its Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim score, the film version of the Broadway hit Gypsy takes you on a grand vaudeville tour. 

    It sweeps you up in the roller-coaster relationship of Louise (Natalie Wood), the wallflower later to blossom into sophisticated stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, and her ambitious mother, Rose (Rosalind Russell, whose performance won her a fifth Best Actress Golden Globe® Award). Karl Malden scores as Herbie, the salesman who falls for Rose – to his exasperation. Full of terrific tunes (Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Small World and Some People among them), Gypsy will certainly entertain you and definitely make you smile.

  • Deanie (Natalie Wood in an Oscar®-nominated* performance that marked a career turning point toward complex adult roles) is a teenager eager to do what’s right in her 1920s Kansas town. But the emotions she shares with boyfriend Bud (Warren Beatty’s screen debut) are too strong. 

    Soon the conflict between respectable behaviour and human desire will push Bud to physical collapse. And Deanie to madness. Director Elia Kazan encouraged Pulitzer Prize winner William Inge (Bus Stop, Picnic) to turn a true story he heard during his Midwest youth into an Academy Award®-winning* script. The result, Splendour in the Grass, remains as poetic, penetrating and powerful today as it was two generations ago.

  • In one of moviedom's most influential roles, James Dean plays Jim Stark, the newkid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of post-war teens - and reverberate nearly 60 years later. 

    Natalie Wood (as Jim's girlfriend Judy) and Sal Mineo (in his screen debut as Jim's tag-along pal Plato) were Academy Award® nominees for their achingly true performances. Director Nicholas Ray was also an Oscar® nominee for this landmark film chosen as one of the Top-1oo Ameican Films by the American Film Institute.
