DVD 4262
Life of Emile Zola
In 1862 Paris, Emile Zola is barely scratching out a living writing muckraking articles about the poverty of the French people and the corruption of their leaders. Until "Nana," about the life of a prostitute, becomes a smash hit and turns Zola into a celebrity, champion of the people. As he churns out a string of similar books that make him quite rich, his old friend Paul Cezanne tells him "An artist should remain poor." His determined intervention in the Dreyfus Affair, at the request of Dreyfus's wife Lucie, results in "J'accuse!" his famous denunciation of the Army, and leads to a conviction for libel. He flees to England, where he remains until granted amnesty. Unfortunately, he dies before the news that Dreyfus was exonerated and reinstated to full rank can reach him. Indicative of the mores of its time, during the course of this clear story about institutionalized anti-Semitism, the word "Jew" is never mentioned. And while most Hollywood biographies must be taken with a grain--if not a handful--of salt, the film makes a reasonable effort at accuracy and completeness.
DVD 8645

DVD 5651

Her growing financial independence permits her to open her own restaurant, and eventually a chain of eateries. She has divorced her intolerant first husband, and married well-connected Monte in order to get Veda into high society. Greedy, self-absorbed Veda is still ungrateful, and demands an even greater sacrifice of her mother. Eventually, Mildred finds herself ensnared in the world of police and suspicion when Monte is mysteriously murdered.

Mission to Moscow
"In their relentless battle against Hitler, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were comrades ... or at least comrades-in-arms. Hollywood joined the fight with Mission to Moscow, based on Ambassador Joseph E. Davies' bestseller about his pre-World War II experiences in the Soviet Union. The film features Academy Award winner Walter Huston as Davies, plus accomplished actors playing the headline-dominating figures of Churchill, Stalin, von Ribbentrop, Litvinov, Molotov and more. For its sometimes-sympathetic picture of Stalin's regime, the film sparked impassioned debate then and remains fascinating now, both for its insights into early American-Soviet relations and its urgent sense of the danger the emerging Axis Powers posed to the world"--Container.
