THE JAMES DEAN STORY
Produced by Robert Altman and George W. George, this highly acclaimed biography tells the story of an American legend. “An unhurried look through the photo album of a hidden young stranger one has grown curious about. It has, besides, that special fascination of any good documentary peeking at humans in spontaneous action – the almost revelationary sight of people one sees every day but never as clearly as through a camera” – Newsweek 9-9-57
THE BELLS OF COCKAIGNE
The Bells of Cockaigne, originally airing in 1953 as a one hour TV drama on the Armstrong Circle Theater, provides a rare glimpse at young Dean in a co-starring role. Gene Lockhart and Donalee Taylor star.

ELVIS - THE COMPLETE STORY
Elvis: The Complete Story is a unique look at all 33 feature films made by the one and only “King of Rock and Roll.” The familiar history takes on a new and vibrant feel as the words and thought of Elvis guide you through his meteoric rise to worldwide fame. From his dirt-poor childhood in the rural south, to his gift to the world of a new kind of music. We ride the souped up Cadillac of success from the backroads of Memphis to the gold paved streets of Hollywood. Film Clips and scenes from his pictures highlight Presley’s rise to fame and provide a look at the real Elvis behind the mask of the superstar. Featured is Elvis’ debut performance in Love Me Tender, leading to dramatic roles in Loving You and Jailhouse Rock, character parts in King Creole and Flaming Star and continuing on to the colourful adventure comedies of G.I. Blues, Viva Las Vegas, and Kid Galahad. Many other films followed through the years, until finally, Elvis regained his position as the world’s top entertainer in his last two mega-hit performance films; Elvis On Tour and Elvis – That’s The Way It Is. You will see a caring and tormented artist, beloved by millions, who could never come to terms with himself. You will witness his devotion to his mother, his generosity, his mood swings, and his unstoppable musical genius. This documentary special also features original music, rare early television appearances, behind-the-scenes footage, and insightful interviews with some of The King’s most famous co-stars.
