Lenny (1974) – Imprint Collection

The story of acerbic 1960s comic Lenny Bruce, whose groundbreaking, no-holds-barred style and social commentary was often deemed by the establishment as too obscene for the public.

Directed by influential dancer and choreographer Bob Fosse, the director of Cabaret and All That Jazz, Dustin Hoffman gives an acclaimed performance as Lenny Bruce, alongside Valerie Perrine (Superman, Superman II), who won a BAFTA for her role in this film. 

Based on the Julian Barry play of the same name, and nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay, and Cinematography. 

Pre-order now – 1500 copies only.

Islands In The Stream (1977) – Imprint Collection

Worldwide first on Blu-ray!

War. Freedom. Loyalty. Love. Manhood. Ernest Hemingway’s most powerful themes are gloriously captured in the motion picture epic Islands In The Stream

George C. Scott and director Franklin J. Shaffner, who teamed so memorably in Patton, reunite in this compelling version of ‘Papa’ Hemingway’s posthumous novel. Scott plays Thomas Hudson, a sculptor whose self-imposed isolation in the Bahamas is ended by two forces: the visit of his sons, and the outbreak of World War II.

The film is touching in its details of a father’s love, and heroic in its defiance of tyranny. The rich sweep of a literary legend washes over Islands In The Stream.

Pre-order now – 1500 copies only.

King Of The Gypsies (1978) – Imprint Collection

In the criminal and violent world of modern-day Gypsies based in New York City, their ‘king’ Zharko Stepanowicz passes his leadership to his unwilling grandson, leaving the skipped father resentful.

This critically acclaimed crime drama stars Eric Roberts in his feature film debut, alongside Sterling Hayden, Shelley Winters, Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields, Annette O’Toole and Judd Hirsch. 

Based on the 1975 book King of the Gypsies by Peter Maas.

Pre-order now – 1500 copies only.
