Filmmakers Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and Michel Gondry,

Along with Audio Commentaries from Noted Film Historians

 

Frank Capra is one of the most popular and beloved filmmakers of all time, but many of his earlier films have never been made available on DVD. Turner Classic Movies (TCM)and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) are joining forces with The Film Foundation on Frank Capra: The Early Collection, a box set of five 1930s pre-code Capra classics coming to DVD for the first time on Monday, Sept. 3. Among the collection’s many special features are video introductions by TCM host Robert Osborne and OscarÒ-winning filmmakers Martin Scorsese (Best Director, The Departed, 2006), Ron Howard (Best Director, A Beautiful Mind, 2001) and Michel Gondry (Best Original Screenplay, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 2004), as well as audio commentaries by film historians Jeanine Basinger and Jeremy Arnold.

 

Frank Capra: The Early Collection will be available exclusively through TCM’s online store (http://shop.tcm.com) as part of the TCM Vault Collection. The set includes re-mastered editions of Rain or Shine (1930), and four early collaborations with his legendary leading lady Barbara Stanwyck: Ladies of Leisure (1930), The Miracle Woman (1931), Forbidden (1932) and The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933). The collection also includes extensive on-screen digital bonus materials including production stills, behind-the-scenes photos, lobby cards, movie posters and more.

 

“Frank Capra is one of the most popular and influential filmmakers in Hollywood history, making this set an invaluable addition to any lover of great cinema,” said Nancy Rewis, vice president of Commerce Enterprise for TCM, TBS and TNT. “We’re proud to be working with some of today’s greatest filmmakers in ensuring that these great films are not only preserved but also made available to fans everywhere.”

 

“TCM has done a great job carrying on the legacy with this seminal Frank Capra release, ” said  Marc Rashba, vice president, Catalog, TV & Shopper Marketing Group at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. “Our partnership continues to deliver high quality DVD packages that fans will appreciate.”

 

“The Film Foundation is proud to partner with Sony and TCM in making these early films of Frank Capra available to audiences for the first time on DVD,” said Margaret Bodde, Executive Director of The Film Foundation. “Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, and Michel Gondry each have fascinating things to say about these films, making this a must-have collection for all those who treasure Capra’s films.”

 

Frank Capra immigrated from Bisacquino, Sicily, as a child and went on to become one of the great American success stories. After growing up in Los Angeles and serving in World War I, he found his calling in the burgeoning film industry of the early ’20s. Working at a variety of jobs, from lab assistant to film cutter to gag writer, Capra was promoted to director by silent comedian Harry Langdon, who scored several box-office hits with Capra at the helm.

 

The Frank Capra: The Early Collection features five key movies made after Capra struck out on his own in the early sound era and became Columbia Pictures’ most important and financially successful director, transforming the company from a poverty row studio to a major player in Hollywood. The films in the collection demonstrate the first evidence of Capra’s emerging directorial style, his keen interest in subject matter that dealt with social issues and his ease at mastering any genre he tackled.

 

The following are the five films included in Frank Capra: The Early Collection:

 

 

Ladies of Leisure(1930) – This drama marked Frank Capra’s first collaboration with Barbara Stanwyck. The film tells of a Depression-era romance between a working-class model and a high-society artist, played by Ralph Graves. The film is based on the 1924 play Ladies of the Evening, written by Milton Herbert Gropper.

 

 

Rain or Shine (1930) – This rollicking comedy-drama follows the ups and downs of a struggling traveling circus. Joe Cook, Louise Fazenda, Joan Peers and William Collier Jr. star in this film, a non-musical version of a Broadway musical of the same name.

 

 

The Miracle Woman(1931) – In this dramatic exposé of religious charlatans, Barbara Stanwyck stars as a female preacher modeled on Aimee Semple McPherson. David Manners co-stars as the blind man who falls in love with her.

 

 

Forbidden (1932) – This charming, romantic drama depicts the intense relationship between librarian Barbara Stanwyck and a wealthy married man, played by Adolphe Menjou. Ralph Bellamy and Dorothy Peterson co-star.

 

 

The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933) – This once-controversial drama depicts an affair between the fiancée of an American missionary, played by Barbara Stanwyck, and a Chinese warlord, played by Nils Asther. Toshia Mori shines as General Yen’s concubine, Mah-Li. The film, which was the first ever to play Radio City Music Hall, also features a memorable dream sequence in which Yen seduces the young missionary. The interracial aspect of the story led the film to be banned in many areas where miscegenation laws were in place.

ABOUT THE THREE STOOGES

The Three Stooges were the longest-running comedy act in motion picture history. The team included Moe Howard (born Harry Horwitz, June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975), Larry Fine (born Andrew Feinberg, October 22, 1902 – January 24, 1975), Curly Howard (born Jerome Horwitz, October 22, 1903 – January 18, 1952), Shemp Howard (born Samuel Horwitz, March 4, 1895 – November 22, 1955), Joe Besser (August 12, 1907 – March 1, 1988) and Joe “Curly-Joe” DeRita (born Joseph Wardell, July 12, 1909 – July 3, 1993).

 

Moe Howard and brother Shemp started in 1922 as noisy assistants to lead comedian Ted Healy in the vaudeville act, “Ted Healy and His Stooges;” Larry Fine joined the team in 1925. Five years later, the act would make its screen debut in Fox’s Soup to Nuts (1930). The Stooges quit Healy soon after and struck out on their own as “Howard, Fine and Howard.” Healy begged them to return, and in 1933 they did, with young brother Jerry (aka Curly) replacing Shemp. After a single film at Universal, they were signed by MGM, making shorts and feature films until the Stooges left Healy for the last time and signed with Columbia in 1934.

 

After the boys’ first two-reelers, Woman Haters and Punch Drunks (both 1934), Healy relinquished his claim to the word “Stooge,” and they were rechristened “The Three Stooges,” beginning with the Oscar®-nominated Men in Black (1934). Curly stayed until 1946, when a stroke forced him into retirement. Among his personal best were Violent is the Word for Curly (1938), A-Plumbing They Did Go (1940), In the Sweet Pie and Pie and An Ache in Every Stake (both 1941), Micro-Phonies (1945) and You Nazty Spy! (1940), the classic Hitler spoof that earned the boys a prominent place on the Nazis’ death list.

 

Shemp Howard

Shemp rejoined the Stooges as Curly’s replacement in 1946. He would make 73 two-reelers with the team, as well as an unsold TV pilot, “Jerk of All Trades,” and a feature, Gold Raiders (1951) with George O’Brien. A gifted comedian with an unrivaled talent for zany ad-libs and non sequiturs, Shemp is considered by some the funniest Stooge of all and appeared in numerous classics, including Brideless Groom (1947), Hot Scots, Squareheads of the Round Table (both 1948), Merry Mavericks (1950) and a pair in 3D, Spooks! and Pardon My Backfire (both 1953).

 

The Three Stooges Meet Hercules

 

 When their popularity skyrocketed after the release of their shorts to television in 1958, the Stooges returned to Columbia, where they made five hit feature-length films: Have Rocket, Will Travel (1959); The Three Stooges Meet Hercules (1962); The Three Stooges in Orbit (1962); The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze (1963); and The Outlaws is Coming (1965).

 

In 2002, Punch Drunks (1934) was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant,” the first Stooge film to achieve such an honor.

 

Curly Howard returns to the act, albeit briefl...
