She, The Fox, Reckless in the Warner Archive

Warner Bros. added a few notables to their Archive Collection for August. As of yesterday, you can now get your dirty hands on Robert Day's not-so-classic epic She, co-produced by Hammer Films and starring Ursula Andress in the title role of She, Who Must Be Obeyed; Hammer staples Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are also in it. As of the 4th, you can also pick up James Foley's Reckless from 1984 with Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah as star-cross'd high school footballer player-and-cheerleader lovers.

On the 18th, they'll release Mark Rydell's adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's The Fox about a pair of lesbians on a chicken farm. A handful of silents will also become available that day, including William Nigh's Across to Singapore with Joan Crawford; William A. Wellman's The Boob also with Crawford (I love the idea of Joan Crawford in a film called The Boob; juvenile, I know); Nigh's Desert Nights; Roy William Neill's The Viking; and Edward Segwick's West Point, again with Joan Crawford.

And finally, a pair of comedies from Mervyn LeRoy are set for the 18th as well. A Majority of One, with Alec Guinness and Rosalind Russell, based on the play by Leonard Spigelgass, and Mary, Mary with Debbie Reynolds. You can find the Warner Archive Online via this link.
