TODAY'S SPECIAL

North West Mounted Police (1940)
Starring Gary Cooper and Madeleine Carroll

Beautiful print and will play in all DVD players.
Cecil B. De Mille directed this lavish all-star spectacular paying tribute to America's neighbors to the North. In 1885, as Louis Riel (Francis J. McDonald) tries to organize Indians and French settlers into a fighting force that will battle against the ruling British, Texas Ranger Dusty Rivers (Gary Cooper) arrives in Canada to arrest Jacques Corbeau (George Bancroft), one of Riel's associates who is wanted for murder in the U.S. Rivers promptly falls for nurse April Logan (Madeleine Carroll), which triggers jealously in the straight-laced Mountie sergeant Jim Brett (Preston S. Foster), who is also in love with April. Meanwhile, April's brother, Ronnie Logan (Robert Preston), also a member of the North West Mounted Police, is in love with Louvette (Paulette Goddard), Corbeau's sister and a fiery "half-breed" who lives among the Indians. When Dusty arrives in Canada, he joins forces with the Mounties, who are looking for Corbeau on another murder charge, and soon joins the fight against Riel's rebel factions. De Mille imported 300 pine trees for his "forest" set, believing that a woods created on the controlled environment of a sound-stage would look more "real" onscreen than location shooting in Canada.

Gatling Guns really were used at Fish Creek, Cutknife Hill, and Batoche during the rebellion on which this story is very loosely based. The federal government were trying them out "on approval". One gun's operator, a Gatling company agent, was also a captain in the Connecticut National Guard.
Joel McCrea was originally cast as Dusty Rivers. Gary Cooper traded roles so that McCrea could star in Foreign Correspondent (1940).
Cecil B. De Mille narrated portions of the story, a practice he followed in all of his Technicolor films.
The world premiere of the film was held in Regina, Saskatchewan, the birthplace of the Northwest Mounted Police.

New Additions At Zeus:
The Bad Man Of Brimstone (1937)

Stars: Wallace Beery, Virginia Bruce, Dennis O'Keefe

Wallace Beery plays one of his patented good bad guys in this MGM Western. "Trigger" Bill (Beery) is an outlaw with a heart of gold who discovers that his estranged son Jeffrey Burton (Dennis O'Keefe) has become a prizefighter. In his attempts to get Jeffrey out of the ring and into law school, Bill reforms and gives up thieving. When the villainous "Blackjack" McCreedy (Bruce Cabot) tries to interfere with Bill and Jeffrey's lives, however, Bill must return to the way of the gun.
Alexander Hamilton (1931)

Stars: George Arliss, Doris Kenyon, Dudley Digges

Alexander Hamilton was not precisely the life story of America's first secretary of the treasury--in fact, it doesn't even depict the most portentous moment of Hamilton's life, his fatal duel with Aaron Burr. Instead, Alexander Hamilton concentrates on Hamilton's efforts to pass the "Assumption Bill," which required the federal government to assume the debts incurred by the 13 states during the Revolutionary War. Hamilton's enemies attempt to blackmail him into silence by calling forth a Mrs. Reynolds, with whom the married Hamilton had had a brief affair while in London. Hamilton confounds his enemies by admitting publicly to the affair and condemning his opponents for compromising the goodwill of the country with such sordid tactics. George Arliss, who'd played Alexander Hamilton on stage, here revives the role, in the company of Alan Mowbray as George Washington (delivering a memorable "farewell to the troops") scene, Montagu Love as Thomas Jefferson, Morgan Wallace as James Monroe, and June Collyer as the hapless Mrs. Reynolds.
Bad Moon (1996)

Stars: Mariel Hemingway, Michael Paré, Mason Gamble

While on assignment in the jungles of Nepal, photojournalist Ted Harrison (Michael Pare) and his girlfriend are savagely attacked by a hideous beast which tears the woman to shreds and leaves Ted badly mauled. He later returns to the States to live near his sister Janet (Mariel Hemingway), nephew Brett (Mason Gamble) and their German shepherd Thor, hoping the presence of family will dispel the horrific memories... until the inevitable effects of a werewolf curse begin to surface. As his humanity begins slipping away, only the family dog begins to suspect something is wrong -- but poor Thor ends up being the chief suspect in a string of recent mutilation murders. Writer/director Eric Red's script (based on the novel Thor by Wayne Smith) plays with the standard werewolf conventions -- territory already barren after being strip-mined by a plethora of Howling sequels -- but tends to retreat into cliché too often to kick it more than a notch or two above the average direct-to-video fodder. Cinematographer Jan Kiesser's widescreen compositions lend a threatening edge to the woodland locations but are sadly lost to cable and home-video formatting.
Badman's Country (1958)

Stars: George Montgomery, Neville Brand, Buster Crabbe

A veritable honor roll of famed western heroes and villains appears in the fanciful oater Badman's Country. It all begins when Sheriff Pat Garrett (George Montgomery) draws up plans to lure the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, headed by Butch Cassidy (Neville Brand) and the Sundance Kid (Russell Johnson) into a trap. To do this, he enlists the aid of fellow peacekeepers Wyatt Earp (Buster Crabbe), Bat Masterson (Gregory Walcott) and Buffalo Bill Cody (Malcolm Atterbury). By the time everyone is introduced, the film is half over. No matter: Badman's Country is redeemed by a truly impressive climactic gun duel.

Badman's Territory (1946)

Stars: Randolph Scott, Ann Richards, George 'Gabby' Hayes

In this is '40s western a U.S. marshal chases a band of big-name bandits into no-man's territory (land outside of U.S. government jurisdiction) as he's trying to locate his little brother. He ends up facing off with none other than the James Boys, the Daltons and other notorious fellows. Badman's Territory proved so successful that the formula was repeated several times by RKO and other studios.
