Overview

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment partnered up with Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation to compile this box set of five film noir classics, fully restored and remastered for the first time in this collection. It begins with a 1954 outing, Fritz Lang's Human Desire - with Glenn Ford as Jeff Warren, a Korean War vet who enters a sticky web of sex, deception and murder when he begins an affair with his boss's wife (Gloria Grahame). The second feature in the package, Richard Quine's Pushover (1954), stars Fred MacMurray as a copy who stakes out the apartment of a bank robber's girlfriend (Kim Novak), and mistakenly puts the make on her in order to find out where some stolen cash is hidden. The 1957 outing The Brothers Rico, directed by Phil Karlson, stars Richard Conte as a Mafioso who went straight and became a respectable businessman and husband - but receives one final call from the mob, which pulls him back into the viper's nest. The fourth feature in the set (and arguably the most famous), Jacques Tourneur's 1956 Nightfall, stars Aldo Ray as an innocent man ensnared by crime and seduction; it features a spectacular supporting cast including Anne Bancroft and Brian Keith. Finally, Irving Lerner's 1959 City of Fear stars Vince Edwards as a convict who breaks out of prison with what he believes is a stash of heroin - but accidentally totes a deadly radioactive substance. Bonus supplements include: Martin Scorsese on The Brothers Rico, Pulp Paranoia with Christopher Nolan, Terror and Desire with Emily Mortimer, and a selection of original theatrical trailers.
