Some Recent Additions to Our Film Collection


Not much today, other than to list a few of our new films. Some are recently made, and some are practically ancient. In other cases, some are simply replacements for items we already own in VHS format:

Across the Universe, a film based on the song by the Beatles (2007). [DVD ACR]

Beverly Hills Cop with Eddie Murphy (1984). [DVD BEV]

East of Eden with James Dean (1954). [DVD EAS]

Fever Pitch with Colin Firth (1997). [DVD FEV] This film was adapted by Nick Hornby from his novel of the same name and is the story of a British school teacher obsessed with his soccer team, the Arsenals. You may recognize this storyline as the basis of the 2005 film of the same name starring Drew Barrymore [DVD FEV] about the Boston Red Sox. I think the second film is much better, but it is fun to compare the two.

A Place in the Sun
with Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift (1951). [DVD PLA]

Risky Business with Tom Cruise (1983). [DVD RIS]



The Shop around the Corner with James Stewart (1940). [DVD SHO] This is the original film upon which the 1998 film about an email correspondence, You've Got Mail, was based [DVD YOU].

Splendor in the Grass with Natalie Wood (1961). [DVD SPL]

We are getting new films in all the time, so visit the library often!
