Father’s Day is less than a week away, and in the spirit of this day (and month) of Dads, The Rock Father and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are giving you a chance to score a special bundle of some classic films that have just been released on Blu-Ray for the very first time. One lucky reader will score the VIVA ZAPATA! (Marlon Brando), THE VERDICT (Paul Newman), and BRUBAKER (Robert Redford). Full details below…
Nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best director and Best Actor, The Verdict is “stirring, entertaining cinema” (Us)! This Blu-ray™ release is packed with compelling special features including on-camera interviews with Oscar® winner Paul Newman* and legendary director Sidney Lumet and is the perfect way to experience “one of the finest courtroom movies ever made” (New York)!
Frank Galvin (Newman) is a boozy washed-up attorney with a losing streak a mile long. so when he’s handed a lucrative out-of-court settlement, everyone expects him to take the money and run. But Frank is tired of running. In a desperate bid to reclaim his self-respect, he recklessly brings the case to court – only to discover that if finding the whole truth is a little like trial and error, then finding real justice is a lot like trial by fire.
The life and times of the legendary Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata are brought to the screen in Darryl F. Zanuck’s powerful production of John Steinbeck’s screenplay. Marlon Brando, fresh from his success in A Streetcar Named Desire, gives a stunning portrayal of the outlaw turned revolutionary leader. The film also boasts Anthony Quinn’s 1952 Best Supporting Actor OSCAR®-Winning performance as Zapata’s brother. Viva Zapata! is one of the classic political movies and another fi ne example of Brando’s genius as a film actor.
ROBERT REDFORD stars in this potent drama based on the real life story of Tom Murton, the prison superintendent who rocked Arkansas politics when he exposed scandalous abuses and murders in a state prison. Posing as a new prisoner, Brubaker (Redford) discovers vast corruption in a state penitentiary before revealing himself to be the new warden. His personal crusade to bring reform puts him in grave danger, especially when he insists on exposing a series of secret murders that took place years earlier. Powerful and disturbing, Brubaker won acclaim for its gritty realism and OSCAR®-Nominated original screenplay.
