The Anne Bancroft Collection 12/17/19

Shout Select

I asked for this set so Mr. Largent could review The Pumpkin Eater, but I didn’t want the rest of the package slip by unremarked. The word is that Mel Brooks himself pulled strings to round out these titles, from companies that normally don’t collaborate: Fox, Criterion, Olive, MGM, Sony. The eclectic range of shows gives us Ms. Bancroft at her best: Pumpkin Eater,plus Don’t Bother to Knock, The Miracle Worker, The Graduate, Fatso, To Be or Not To Be and 84 Charing Cross Road. All are beautiful transfers, carrying over plenty of extras. On Blu-ray from Shout Select.
