Bette Davis, Anne Bancroft, Richard Attenborough, Rosalind Russell: Columbia Classics' On-Demand DVDs

by Andre Soares

Bette Davis outdoes Joan Crawford in the slapping department in the 1956 drama Storm Center, in which Davis plays a librarian concerned about civil liberties

Following the lead of Time Warner, Sony Pictures has started the distribution of on-demand DVDs of rare (or somewhat rare) classics and not-so-classics found in its library.

Columbia Classics has yet to offer Bette Davis in The Menace, Jean Arthur in The Most Precious Thing in Life, or Melvyn Douglas in The Lone Wolf Returns, but among their dozens of releases are a number of goodies.

For instance:

Also, Terence Stamp delivering a remarkable performance as a mentally challenged man in The Mind of Mr. Soames (1970); Bette Davis and Kim Hunter in the anti-Red Scare paranoia Storm Center (1956); Rosalind Russell in the melo The Guilt of Janet Ames (1947); the B-mystery The Spiritualist (1944), with Turhan Bey and Lynn Bari; and dozens more.
