New DVDs:

  • The Little Rascals, Volume 1, 2, 3, and 4.  Noted for showing children behaving in a relatively natural way, while child actors are often groomed to imitate adult acting styles, steal scenes, or deliver ‘cute’ performances, Hal Roach and original director Robert F. McGowan worked to film the unaffected, raw nuances apparent in regular kids. Includes forty Hal Roach talking shorts spanning from 1929 -1934.
  • Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle, starring Doris Roberts, Jewel Staite, Quinn Lord, Eric Johnson.  This Christmas, Emily Merkle (aka Mrs. Miracle) is working in the toy department at Finley’s. Her boss is Jake Finley, the owner’s son, who needs a miracle to keep the business afloat.  Holly Larson needs a miracle, too.  Her widowed brother who is in the army won’t be home for the holidays.  For Christmas her nephew wants the toy robot he saw at Finley’s, and she plans to get it for him.  Fortunately, it’s Mrs. Miracle to the rescue.  Next to making children happy, she enjoys a bit of matchmaking.
  • Black Beauty, starring Sean Bean, David Thewlis.  Faithfully based on Anne Sewell’s classic novel, this beloved horse story is told by its hero, the gallant Beauty, whose joyous and heartbreaking life takes him from idyllic days on a country squire’s estate to London’s hard, cobblestoned streets, through decades of owners both kindly and harsh.
