Upcoming Olive Films Titles

Posted March 28, 2013 06:08 PM by Webmaster

Olive FilmsIndependent distributors Olive Films have revealed that they are planning to add twelve new titles to their Blu-ray catalog. Amongst them are films by Ralph Nelson, Paul Fraser, Stanley Donen, Bernard Vorhaus, William C. McGann, and Raoul Walsh. The releases will be available for purchase in May.

The Magic Christian

Peter Sellers portrays Sir Guy Grand, the richest man in the world, who happens upon a young orphan in the park (Ringo Starr) and, on a whim, decides to adopt him. Together they set off on a series of madcap escapades, discovering along the way that money will buy anyone, anything that their happy-go-lucky hearts desire. Higlighting the film is McCarthy's hit song Come And Get It, and Monty Python regulars who polish it off with their own quirky brand of hilarity. Directed by Joseph McGrath, and starring Peter Sellers, Ringo Starr, and Isabel Jeans.

Shanks

A mute puppeteer discovers how to manipulate dead bodies in this very entertaining horror film. Directed by William Castle, and starring Marcel Marceau, Tsilla Chelton, Philippe Clay, and Don Calfa.

The Girl Who Knew Too Much

Johnny Cain, a nightclub owner and former freelance adventurer, is forced out of retirement when a crime syndicate boss is murdered in his nightclub and investigations lead into unexpected areas. Directed by Francis D. Lyon, and starring Adam West, Nancy Kwan, and Robert Alda.

The File on Thelma Jordon

A jewel thief convinces a stunningly beautiful woman to seduce a District Attorney. She does and pulls him into a web of theft and murder. Directed by Robert Siodmak, and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Wendell Corey, and Paul Kelly.

Blowing Wild

Jeff and Dutch, a pair of wildcat oil prospectors looking to get rich in Mexico, find themselves caught in a pair of explosive situations. First they get tricked into delivering a load of nitroglycerin. Then in the oil fields, Jeff runs into Ward, an old friend who has become wealthy, and Ward's wife, who sets out to seduce Jeff no matter the cost. Directed by Hugo Fregonese, and starring Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, and Ruth Roman.

Reuben, Reuben

Meet Gowan McGland, a poet. He drinks and lies. Sleeps with other men's wives. He hasn't written a word in years, but every woman he meets falls in love with him. Directed by Robert Ellis Miller, and starring Tom Conti, Kelly McGillis, and Roberts Blossom.

Dark Command

John Wayne is good guy Bob Seton in Raoul Walsh's star-studded thriller set in the dark days before the Civil War. During this strained period in America's history, emotions run high and tension fills the air, especially during political contests. In the race for Federal Marshall of Kansas, Seton defeats William Cantrell, causing increased animosity between these two powerful figures. Their mutual ill will peaks when Cantrell steals Seton's girl, manipulating her into marriage to get even with Seton. Their rivalry reaches dangerous proportions when Seton exposes Cantrell and his guerrillas who have been raiding both Union and Confederate lines. Roy Rogers co-stars in one of his earliest film roles. Directed by Raoul Walsh, and starring Claire Trevor, John Wayne, and Walter Pidgeon.

In Old California

Tom Craig, a handsome physician in the gold rush days, discovers that Sacramento politician Britt Dawson has become wealthy from forced tributes levied on ranches. Irate and incensed, he leads the ranchers in a successful revolt against the unfair taxes. In retaliation, Dawson viciously taints a tonic prescribed by Tom, and a patient is killed. Dawson hides the evidence and incites the mob into a furious race against Tom claiming he's an unfit physician. When gold is discovered at Sutter's Mill, the announcement distracts the crowd, saving Tom from being lynched. How will the local residents feel about Tom when he's the only doctor in town especially when a terrible epidemic breaks out? Will Dawson still be able to make good on his attempts to destroy Tom? The outcome will have you on the edge of you saddle as the action builds to an exciting conclusion. Directed by William C. McGann, and starring John Wayne, Binnie Barnes, and Albert Dekker.

Lady from Louisiana

Northern lawyer John Reynolds travels to New Orleans to try and clean up the local crime syndicate based around a lottery. Although he meets Julie Mirbeau and they are attracted to each other, the fact that her father heads the lottery means they end up on opposite sides. When her father is killed, Julie becomes more and more involved in the shady activities and in blocking Reynolds' attempts at prosecution. Directed by Bernard Vorhaus, and starring John Wayne, Ona Munson, and Ray Middleton.

My Brothers

My Brothers is the directorial debut from writer Paul Fraser (Dead Mans Shoes, Somers Town). Set over Halloween weekend of 1987, the film tells the story of three young brothers' quest to replace their dying father's watch. Noel: 17, serious, weighed down by responsibility; Paudie: 11, cocky, not so bright and dreams of playing in goals for Liverpool and Scwally: 7, na�ve and obsessed with Star Wars (despite never actually having seen the films). Starring Timmy Creed, Paul Courtney, and Tj Griffin.

The Grass Is Greener

When a struggling British earl opens his manor to the public, what he wants is some badly needed money... what he gets is a handsome American millionaire who sweeps the earl's gorgeous wife off her feet. Encouraged by his wife's chatterbox best friend, the jealous earl challenges his Yank rival to a duel. The romantic royal is fighting for love and honor, but he could lose something more - his life. Directed by Stanley Donen, and starring Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, and Robert Mitchum.

Father Goose

Cary Grant stars in one of his funniest roles as a boozy beachcomber sitting out WWII in peace - until the Allies recruit him to be a lookout on the South Pacific isle. During an enemy attack, he answers a distress call and discovers a beautiful French schoolmarm and her seven girl students. And so begins a hilarious battle of the sexes between a messy American, a prim Mademoiselle, and seven mischievous little girls. Who will win is anybody's guess, but you can be sure that Father Goose delivers plenty of romantic fun and adventure along the way. Directed by Ralph Nelson, and starring Cary Grant, Leslie Caron, and Trevor Howard.

Definitely will want the John Wayne and Cary Grant titles. But damn, Olive's discs are expensive for what they are, $20 or $25 for a bare bones disc. You never see them come down either.

Father Goose! Great!
Will probably blind buy File on Thelma Jordan due to its reputation and the names involved, and The Girl Who Knew Too Much due to the plot. Haven't seen Grass is Greener either, but the stars make it enticing, so I might blind buy that one based on the stars alone.
I don't care to upgrade my copy of those lesser John Wayne films.

@Tom Servo - HuggyBear73 is correct - ImportCds usually has the best prices on Olive titles especially compared to amazon - a title for $25 on Amazon is <$15 at ImportCds...

I'd heard about Shanks, but could never find any trace of its existence... 0_0 That's what vintage-cult labels are for.

@bondfool - I remember a car ad that tried using "Come and Get It" for one of their sales ads--Strangely enough, they always seemed to cut it off just before "Did I hear you say that there must be a catch?/Will you walk away from a fool and his money?"

All under-done (for Blu) and over-priced. Most of these titles are better suited for $10 DVD's. Magic Christian should have been picked up by Criterion (or other quality distrib) and treated properly. At least they give you quality for your money, not this half-a@@ stuff Olive does.

Some good films there. And the one that really caught my eye was The Magic Christian. This is really amusing and has a guest cast list that is terrific. Besides the stars Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr, you will see Christopher Lee (as Dracula), Yul Brynner, John Cleese, Spike Milligan, Raquel Welch, Roman Polanski, Graham Chapman, more.

Wow! I never expected The Magic Christian to come to Blu-ray. Glad I never dropped the money on the OOP DVD. I definitely want a copy just for the cult kitsch allure of, "Hey guys, wanna see something weird?"
