The Very Best of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

Here, in one collection, are some of the biggest hits from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, when they dominated Top 40 radio from the early ’60s through the chart-topping theme from the movie “Grease” in 1978.

The Way of Love: The Cher Collection

This collection combines Cher’s more popular recordings from the mid-’60s to her Casablanca years in the late ’70s, including a few tracks with Sonny. It contains signature smashes, ranging from “Bang Bang,” “The Way of Love,” “Half Breed,” “Dark Lady” and “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves” to her 1979 disco hit “Take Me Home.” This album showcases Cher not only as a rock, pop and, folk star, but also as an interpreter of standards.

Monty Python's Flying Circus

One of the most ingenious and imaginative comedy shows ever to grace British television, the series, originally broadcast by the BBC from 1969 to 1974, threw away the rule book of traditional sketch writing, dispensing with punch-lines and adopting an innovative stream of consciousness approach (aided by Gilliam’s animation), pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable in style and content.

Bette Davis: More Than a Woman

Based on three years of research and more than 150 interviews with close family, friends, and co-workers, this Hollywood legend biography from author James Spada reveals for the first time the devastating effect on Bette of her father’s desertion; her oddly close relationship with her mother; her massive self-doubts and numerous, tempestuous marriages and extramarital affairs.

Leaving Las Vegas

Nicolas Cage garnered a Best Actor Oscar for his hauntingly disturbing portrayal of a suicidal alcoholic who falls for a compassionate Las Vegas prostitute (Elisabeth Shue) in one of the 1990s most critically acclaimed films.

Six Feet Under

For the Fisher family, the world outside of their family-owned funeral home continues to be at least as challenging as—and far less predictable than—the one inside. From Oscar-winning screenwriter Alan Ball comes this drama series that takes a darkly comic look at a dysfunctional L.A. family that runs a funeral business. Starring Peter Krause, Frances Conroy, Michael C. Hall, Lauren Ambrose, Rachel Griffiths and Jeremy Sisto.
