State Of The Union:
The Flamboyant businessman, Grant Matthews (Spencer Tracy), is persuaded by his mistress, the powerful publishing heiress Kay Thorndyke (Angela Lansbury), to seek the Republican nomination in the forthcoming elections. Mary Matthews (Katharine Hepburn), joins her estranged husband to present a public portrait of a happy family for the voters. With the aid of the conniving political boss Jim Conover (Adolphe Menjou), Grant begins the long road to the White House...

Guess Who's Coming To Dinner
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award as Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of a crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy), and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiancee, John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; and the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance.

Suddenly Last Summer
Elizabeth Taylor and Katharine Hepburn each received Oscar nominations for best actress in this gripping adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play filmed at Shepperton Studios by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz.

Catherine Holly (Taylor) is committed to a mental institution after witnessing the strange and horrible death of her cousin. Catherine's aunt, Violet Venable (Hepburn) tries to influence Dr Cukrowicz (Montgomery Clift), a young neurosurgeon, to surgically end Catherine's haunting hallucinations. By utilising injections of Sodium Pentothal, Dr Cukrowicz discovers that Catherine's delusions are in fact true. He then must confront Violet about her own involvement in her son's lurid death...

Bringing Up Baby
A dog belonging to an eccentric heiress (Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from David (Grant), an absent-minded Zoology professor. David follows the heiress to her home and all hell breaks loose when he loses his pet leopard known as 'Baby'.

Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn give fantastic performances in one of Hollywood's finest screwball comedies, superbly directed by Howard Hawks.

Rooster Cogburn
Two of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in the follow up to True Grit. The film returns John Wayne to the role of the rapscallion, eye patched, whiskey guzzling Deputy Marshall that won him an Academy Award. Katharine Hepburn is prim Eula Goodnight, a Bible thumping missionary who teams up with the gun fighter to avenge the death of her father. While in pursuit of the outlaws, a warm rapport develops between the rough n' tumble lawman and the flirty reverend's daughter.

An iconoclastic young man (Cary Grant), who's engaged to a snooty heiress (Doris Nolan), discovers he's really in love with his fiancée's down-to-earth sister (Katharine Hepburn), in director George Cukor's stylish comedy...

Thanks for this Cat

Cracking deal, thanks. I was just about to shell out a lot more for this for my wife's birthday - the timing is perfect.

Thanks a lot, voted hot.

also Barbara Stanwyck - £10.99 - well worth it to me!

Double Indemnity (Dir. Billy Wilder, 1944): Director Billy Wilder and writer Raymond Chandler ('The Big Sleep') adapted James M. Cain's hard-boiled novel into this wildly thrilling story of insurance man Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray), who schemes the perfect murder with the beautiful dame Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck): kill Dietrichson's husband and make off with the insurance money. But, of course, in these plots things never quite go as planned and Barton Keyes (Edward G. Robinson) is the wily insurance investigator who has a feeling that not all is as it seems...

Nominated for 7 Oscars at the 1944 Academy Awards, available for the first time on DVD!

The Lady Eve (Dir. Preston Sturges, 1941): In 1941, Barbara Stanwyck was offered two screwball roles equally suited to her tart intelligence, deft comic timing, and undeniable sex appeal, and it's a photo finish as to which was funnier; showgirl-on-the-lam Sugarpuss O'Shea, the title character in Howard Hawks's 'Ball of Fire', or con artist Jean Harrington a.k.a. Lady Eve Sidwich, the delirious fulcrum for this classic Preston Sturges comedy.

Under Sturges's typically antic microscope, the collision between the gold-digging Harrington and the very rich, very hapless brewery-heir-turned-herpetologist Charles Pike (a wonderfully callow, guileless Henry Fonda) yields ample opportunity for the writer-director to skewer issues of class and sex; as always, Sturges is bold in pushing the censors' envelope, capturing a palpable erotic heat between the canny Jean and the literally feverish Charlie, who, after a year up the Amazon, is instantly smitten by the mere sight of her shapely ankles (in hindsight, a precursor to her subsequent effect in 'Double Indemnity').

The Bitter Tea Of General Yen (Dir. Frank Capra, 1933): Caught in a Chinese rebellion, newly-arrived American Megan Davis (Stanwyck) is rescued by a cultured bandit, General Yen. When she realises she is being held captive she sets about undermining her captor. In time, however, she finds that it is not her confinement she must fight against - rather it is her growing attraction to the man...

Golden Boy (Dir. Rouben Mamoulian, 1939): The tale of Joe Bonaparte; a boy encouraged by his father to pursue his dream of playing the violin, who turns to boxing when poverty sets in. What he witnesses is the tough and uncompromising world of major league boxing; the widespread corruption; and the alluring qualities of one hot dame!

The Miracle Woman (Dir. Frank Capra, 1931): Barbara Stanwyck stars as Sister "Faith" Fallon, the charismatic leader of a Pentecostal sect. David Manners plays John Carson, the blind man whose life is changed by her powerful sermon. Little does he know that Faith works alongside a con-man performing hoax miracles to boost the coiffeurs. Will John's love for Faith finally steer her back onto the right path?

All I Desire (Dir. Douglas Sirk, 1953): Barbara Stanwyck stars as Naomi Murdock, a wayward mother and struggling actress who yearns for her old life before she walked out on her family. Returning to town she finds herself the subject of hearsay and loose speculation from the locals. More importantly her husband is striking up a relationship with a local school teacher and her oldest daughter remains hostile to the mother who abandoned her. Will Naomi be able to repair the damage done and rest her demons?
