Overview

Four Best Picture winners spanning the years 1927-1950 are grouped together in this lavish box set. Studio Classics: Best Picture Collection digs into the 20th Century Fox library to come up with four studio-era gems: Sunrise, How Green Was My Valley, Gentleman's Agreement, and All About Eve. Each disc is presented in a crisp, full-frame transfer -- as they were originally shown -- with Dolby Stereo sound where available (the silent Sunrise is presented with both its original mono score and a new stereo track). Special features include trailers and commentary tracks for each film, AMC Backstory segments on Gentleman's Agreement and All About Eve, still galleries, and newsreel and interview footage, just to name a few.
