It has been 70 years since the people of Samson Island preyed upon a school of Narwhal Whales, only to be destroyed by a mysterious curse. If the last survivor is to be spared, it will be up to two trusting children to learn his ancient secrets. In 1844, residents of the British isle of Samson suddenly evacuate -- never to return -- allegedly due to an unexplained curse. Seventy years afterward, on the nearby island of Bryher, a pair of children, Max and Gracie, play along the shore. They meet the enigmatic "Birdman," whom the people in their town have warned them to avoid, and befriend him. Later, a "narwhal," or a tusked whale, beaches itself on the sands of Bryher. According to the Birdman, this event means the curse that struck Samson will soon destroy Bryher... unless the people can somehow save the whale.

Some people may sneer at this 1965 musical, but the truth is the film has earned its status as a perennially watchable romantic-drama, largely on the strength of a fun story and chemistry between stars Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Veteran filmmaker Robert Wise (The Day the Earth Stood Still) mostly stays out of the way of the film's appealing elements, which include a based-on-fact tale of Austria's von Trapp family, who fled their Nazi-occupied country in 1938. Andrews is delightful and even fascinating as Maria, who sheds her tomboyish ways as a novice nun to accept the mantle of adulthood, becoming matron of the motherless von Trapp clan. Plummer is matinee-idol handsome and gives a smart performance to boot, and the cast of young people and kids who make up the singing von Trapp children make a strong impression. Based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein stage musical, the score includes such winners as "Maria" and the future John Coltrane hit "My Favorite Things." --Tom Keogh

The band goes to Ellis Island to meet the girl and soon discovers that the refugee isn't a 10-year-old child, but a young woman, Karen Benson (Henie). The surprise comes right before the band is to travel to Sun Valley, Idaho for a Christmas gig. While on the ski slopes Ted soon falls for Karen's inventive schemes to win the heart of her new sponsor, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Vivian Dawn (Bari), a soloist with the band. Vivian promptly quits the band out of jealousy, and Karen stages an elaborate ice show as a substitute.Free upgrade to first class mail.

Band of Brothers [VHS] Lowest new price: $9.65
Lowest used price: $3.08
List price: $13.65

Follow the men of Easy Company from the start of boot camp to the end of WWII. From Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, this haunting, powerful HBO miniseries takes you into the hellish heart of war. Nominated for 19 Emmy® Awards. 10 episodes plus an 80-min. documentary; 11-1/4 hours on 6 cassettes. Simon says: Stephen Ambrose, prolific chronicler of history, wrote Band of Brothers in part to renew "a commitment to democracy…an understanding that freedom doesn’t come for free." This point, of course, was tragically underscored just two days after the September 9 premiere of the miniseries.

This massive 1977 adaptation by director Richard Attenborough (Gandhi) of Cornelius Ryan's novel features an all-star cast in an epic rendering of a daring but ultimately disastrous raid behind enemy lines in Holland during the Second World War. A lengthy and exhaustive look at the mechanics of warfare and the price and futility of war, the film is almost too large for its aims but manages to be both picaresque and affecting, particularly in the performance of James Caan. The impressive cast includes Robert Redford, Gene Hackman, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Dirk Bogarde, Sean Connery, and Liv Ullmann among others. While not a classic war film, it nevertheless manages to be a consistently interesting and exciting adventure. --Robert Lane

Spurred by an unfriendly visit from Axis reps, Frank Raymond (Jon Hall), the grandson of the original invisible fella, realizes his duty is clear. That is, he must turn over the formula for his grandfather's invisibility serum to the U.S. government before the Nazis get hold of it, and volunteer his invisible self as a secret weapon to obtain classified Nazi secrets. So The Invisible Heir turns Invisible Paratrooper and jumps behind enemy lines to wrangle with their high command, make time with delectable counterintelligence agent Ilona Massey, make monkeys out of a gaggle of Nazis, and uncover the Axis plans to bomb New York City! Tonight! With or without Giuliani! This is the third in Universal's series of '40s takes on the invisibility theme, and a dandy one it is. While the dialogue may strike some as being afflicted with flattened affectation, and the antics invisibility is wont to entice may seem silly, this flick is done up in the atmospheric horror mode that Universal perfected in the mid-'30s to mid-'40s, sporting many finely tuned moments of dark intrigue to complement the screwy business. Cedric Hardwicke adds weight and style to the Nazi side, while Peter Lorre portrays an agent of the Japanese (!)--amazing to say, he looks quite the part, but he sounds for all the world just like the child-killer he played in M. And Ilona Massey is supreme Nazi-bait. --Jim Gay

South Pacific [VHS] Lowest new price: $1.95

Tender romance, an immortal score and enchanted South Seas splendor are set against thedark backdrop of a world at war in this lush and passionate musical classic. At the heart of "South Park" is the love story of a naive young Navy nurse (Mitzi Gaynor) and an older French plantationowner (Rossano Brazzi) on a US occupied South Sea island. A young soldier (John Kerr) and a beautiful native girl (France Nuyen) also fall in love, while Ray Walston, as a scheming sailor, and Juanita Hall as the native queen of the black market, add wonderful supporting turns. The score is as breathtaking as the South Seas setting--"Some Enchanged Evening" "Bali Hai" "Thereis Nothin' Like a Dame" "Younger Than Springtime" an more Winnor of the Puliters Prize, "South Pacific" ranks among themost celebrated of Rodgers and Hammerstein's acclaimed musical masterpieces.

The dazzling Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, brought to lush life by the director of the original stage version, Joshua Logan. Set on a remote island during the Second World War, South Pacific tracks two parallel romances: one between a Navy nurse (Mitzi Gaynor) "as corny as Kansas in August" and a wealthy French plantation owner (Rossano Brazzi), the other between a young American officer (John Kerr) and a native girl (France Nuyen). The theme of interracial love was still daring in 1958, and so was director Logan's decision to overlay emotional moments with tinted filters--a technique that misfires as often as it hits. The comic relief tends to fall flat, and an overly spunky Mitzi Gaynor is a poor substitute for the stage original's Mary Martin. But the location scenery on the Hawaiian island of Kauai is gorgeous, and the songs are among the finest in the American musical catalog: "Some Enchanted Evening," "Younger than Springtime," "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair," "This Nearly Was Mine." That's Juanita Hall as the sly native trader Bloody Mary, singing the haunting tune that launched a thousand tiki bars, "Bali H'ai." Based on stories from James Michener's book Tales from the South Pacific. --Robert Horton
