Former national rodeo champion Sonny Steele (Robert Redford) has thrown in the towel to become the spokesman for Ranch Cereal. Now in the pay of vast business conglomerate Ampco, Sonny’s personal appearances are ‘aided’ by his garish electrified cowboy suit and hindered by his drunkenness, and matters come to a head at a flashy Las Vegas convention when he’s supposed to ride Rising Star, a $12m racehorse, onstage. Discovering that the horse has been doped, Sonny rides defiantly offstage and absconds into the desert in a bid to restore Rising Star to freedom. Investigative journalist Hallie Martin (Jane Fonda) goes after Sonny to nail a juicy scoop but ends up with considerably more as she tracks him down and starts to fall for his charms. Several interested parties are in hot pursuit, however, including the state police, the FBI, rival TV networks and a vengeful Ampco, which wants its valuable property back. Willie Nelson plays Sonny’s laid-back rodeo pal Wendell, Valerie Perrine is Sonny’s former wife Charlotta, and John Saxon is the ruthless Ampco head honcho Hunt Sears.
From the Merchant of Menace, Vincent Price, and the King of the Bs, Roger Corman, come Six Gothic tales inspired by the pen of Edgar Allan Poe. In The Fall of the House of Usher, a young man learns of a family curse that threatens his happiness with his bride-to-be. In The Pit and the Pendulum, a brother investigates the untimely death of sister, played by Barbara Steele. Tales of Terror adapts three Poe classics, Morella, The Black Cat and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, each starring a horror icon. The Raven is a comic take on the famous poem concerning three rival magicians. In The Haunted Palace, a newcomer in a New England town is suspected of being a warlock. And in The Tomb of Ligeia, filmed in Norfolk and at Stonehenge, a widower's upcoming marriage plans are thwarted by his dead first wife. The six films boast a remarkable cast list: not just Price and Steele, but also Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr, Basil and a very young Jack Nicholson. Adapted for the screen by Richard Matheson and Robert Towne, these Six Gothic Tales now rank as classic examples of sixties horror cinema.

A Lincoln Continental driven by Amy Steele, wife of millionaire rancher, James Steele, rams a tanker full of gasoline. Instant incineration of both drivers; a probable accident, according to Sergeant Larry Jenner of the Amarillo Police Department. Eight months later, it’s murder, according to Sergeant Ed Schroder of the Special Crimes Unit, and the probable murderer is the widower. Standing between James Steele and Sergeants Jenner and Schroder is John Lloyd Branson, reputed to be the best criminal defense attorney in Texas. In his formal three-piece suits, cowboy boots, Phi Beta Kappa key, he is certainly the most eccentric attorney. Assisted by his legal clerk, Lydia Fairchild, John Lloyd must prove that the most unlikely, indeed the most impossible, suspect is a cold-blooded murderer. 1. Language: English.

After his brush with death, Jack Steele emerges a man, in some measure less than he was, but more than he should be. But what has he become, exactly?Alone and on his own in Dark Territory, Steele finds trust is a dangerous and precarious proposition. Forced to change and adapt to survive without support, he is willing to do nearly anything to get home to his wife and son.Flung wide across unpredictable, untamed, and unforgiving space, Jack Steele and his extended family struggle for survival, left to their own devices. But their goal remains the same: duty to finish their mission.A trial of wits, perseverance, guts, and honor, they need to be cunning and ruthless, without losing sight of their humanity.“There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost certain that there is life somewhere in space.” (Buzz Aldrin) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Clay.

A second chance may be just what James Steele needs… I might be one of the older players on the Arizona Vengeance, but I like to think that also makes me one of the wisest. Or at least I used to. Turns out, I've been a bit selfish. I've been married to hockey and my team for years, which hasn't left much time for my actual wife, Ella. Now I'm juggling a separation I never wanted, the pressure of being a single dad to our teenage daughter, and the career I sacrificed it all for. While my game on the ice might be on fire, the game in my personal life is clearly lacking, as evidenced by the fact I just saw my wife on a date with another man. If I have any hope of saving the family I love, I need to re-prioritize, and fast. So it's time for me to get back to fundamentals, just like I did when I learned how to play hockey. I've never backed down from a challenge, and romancing my wife is a challenge I am very much looking forward to. Time to put on my game face, because I'm in it to win it.
