An opportunity to buy a brand-new PAL (Region 2) DVD of one of the last pictures to be made by Mascot Pictures of the 1930s, before the company merged to form Republic Pictures:
The Headline Woman, 1935, starring Heather Angel and Roger Pryor
Running Time: approximately 75 minutes
The source print is very good – the quality of the picture is very good and the sound is fine.
Your brand-new DVD disc will be created from this source material (without any artwork), and will be supplied in a clear plastic wallet, NOT in a DVD case.
Note that the picture attached is for illustrative purposes only, and therefore it is NOT included or offered in this auction.
IMPORTANT NOTE for American, Canadian and other non-Region 2 buyers:
You will need a multi-region DVD player to play this disc, or you can view it using one of your computer DVD play-back programmes.
Directed by William Nigh
Produced by Nat Levine for Mascot Pictures
Film Editors: Joseph Kane and Joseph H Lewis (supervising)
After gambler 'Full House' Johnny Corinti refuses to pay the $10,000 he owes to the crooked gambling house run by Clarkey, he is murdered and thus becomes the third victim of what police suspect is a gambling war. When the killer escapes with the aid of bumbling policeman Hugo Meyer, Harry Chase, editor of the Express , publishes the embarrassing story as a way to get back at Police Commissioner Frank Desmond, who openly scorns the press. Bob Grayson, a reporter for Chase, offers to make a deal for favourable coverage with Desmond, but is flatly rejected; however, he finds a willing partner in Hugo, who agrees to tip him off during police investigations…..
Please read all the details of this listing so you know exactly what you are buying.
What will I receive? Your film will come on a DVD-R disc in a plastic DVD sleeve with no artwork. The title of the film will be written on the sleeve for your convenience.
