SRP: $14.95

UPC #: 790357207435

Released in 1930, Check And Double Check brought the country's highest-rated radio program (and the first true sitcom), Amos and Andy, to the big screen. Producers felt audiences would accept no substitutes, so the actors who created and played the black characters on radio, Freeman Gosden and Charles W. Correll, star in the film. Posters read: "Here They Are... On the Screen... In Their First All-Talking Motion Picture." The only hitch was, they were white.

The film follows the blackfaced Amos Brown and Andy Jones, owners of the Fresh Air Taxicab Company, as they become involved in the romance of a wealthy white couple. The plot works in much of the pairs trademark banter, a haunted house sequence and an early appearance by the great Bing Crosby, Duke Ellington and His Cotton Club Band, who perform several numbers. RKO-Radio Pictures knew the film had a built-in audience and funded radio broadcasts from Hollywood to keep Amos n Andy on the air during production. It all paid off. Check And Double Check was the studios biggest hit of the season. And today, its our only look at the radio pioneers who created Amos and Andy.

Lady of Burlesque

Catalog #: AED2077
UPC #: 785604207733

Based on The G-String Murders, a best-selling novel by famed stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, 1943's Lady of Burlesque is a delightful comedic collaboration between director William Wyler and screen legend Barbara Stanwyck. To audiences in the day, the seductive shakes, splits and cartwheels performed by Stanwyck, coupled with the behind-the-scenes antics of a ?grindhouse, seemed very risque. The revealing outfits and bawdy atmosphere of the film even attracted the attention of the ever-watchful eye of the Hays Office.

Stanwyck plays wise-cracking lead stripper Dixie Daisy, who works at S.B. Foss's Old Opera House, a popular burlesque joint, spending her time rebuffing her fellow performer Biff Brannigan, until a fellow stripper is found strangled by her own G-string. When a second victim is found, Dixie looks like a suspect, but must join together with Biff to search out the real killer. Dixie and Biff narrow down the list of suspects while coming up with a plan to snag the murderer in classic whodunnit style.
