Three sought-out titles make their way to physical media this week courtesy of KL Studio Classics. Check out these classics that are now available!
Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967)
The “Roaring Twenties” live on in this Oscar-winning musical comedy of innocent girls, wild flappers, romance, and crime. Julie Andrews stars as Millie, whose plan to get a job with–and then marry–a wealthy businessman finds her crossing paths with a naive girl (Mary Tyler Moore), a paper clip salesman (James Fox), a ditzy widow (Carol Channing), and a hotel house mother (Beatrice Lillie) who sells her tenants into white slavery. Songs include the title tune, “Jimmy,” “Do It Again,” and more.
Former ad executive Pete (George Peppard) had chucked it all for the loft life of a cynical Bohemian artiste. He’d soon have his outlook brightened, though, courtesy of an inadvertently imported toucan, bearing a strange virus leaving those infected with euphoria. His eager efforts with his now-cheery commune to spread the bizarre bird flu through a miserable Manhattan propel this long-sought farce. Mary Tyler Moore, Dom DeLuise, Susan Saint James, Thelma Ritter also star.
Moment by Moment (1978)
Miserable since her philandering husband walked out, Beverly Hills socialite Trisha Rawlings (Lily Tomlin) wasn’t in the mood for the drugstore come-on of much younger car valet Strip Harrison (John Travolta). Still, he persisted…and as she began to reciprocate his attentions, could there be a realistic basis for a relationship? Long-sought guilty pleasure May/December romance from writer/director Jane Wagner also stars Bert Kramer, Debra Feuer, James Luisi.
