The Loved One

Tom Jones’ director Tony Richardson helms a darkly comedic cult fave from a bitterly satirical script by Terry Southern and Christopher Isherwood based on the Evelyn Waugh novella. New to Los Angeles, a young Englishman is drawn into the booming burial business, falls for a beautiful cosmetician and encounters the strange, callous, and crooked in the funeral industry, all while working at The Happy Hunting Ground pet cemetery. Featuring an incredible ensemble, including Robert Morse, Jonathan Winters (in dual roles!), Rod Steiger, Dana Andrews, James Coburn, John Gielgud, Tab Hunter, Liberace, Milton Berle, Roddy McDowall, and many others.

Cry For Me, Billy

A Video Archives ultra-rarity! A disillusioned young cowboy falls in love with an Apache woman and encounters the cruel brutality of the American West, the racist hatred of its settlers, and the sadistic savagery of its soldiers.
