An actress with all the magnetism of an A-list star, but an elusiveness that made her difficult (perhaps impossible) to pinpoint, Kim Novak coupled a blonde sultriness with an intense, smoky voice and an ability to play stunningly diverse roles. From her heyday in the late 1950s and the early 1960s, through lesser known outings such as The Legend of Lylah Clare (1968) and The Great Bank Robbery (1969), Novak succeeded at keeping audiences enthralled. This collection from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is pulled largely from Novak's halcyon days. It includes five of the actress's most popular films: Picnic (1955, co-starring William Holden and Susan Strasberg; Jeanne Eagels (1957), co-starring Gene Lockhart and Agnes Moorehead; Bell, Book and Candle (1958), co-starring Jimmy Stewart; Middle of the Night (1959), co starring Frederic March; and Pal Joey, co-starring Frank Sinatra and Rita Hayworth. Bonus features include selected scene commentaries with Novak and Stephen Rebello, footage of Novak backstage and at home, original trailers, and 5.1 audio on Picnic and Pal Joey.
