California Dreamin' (2007) Armand Assante, Jamie Elman, Razvan Vasilescu, Maria Dinulescu, Alexandru Margineanu, Ion Sapdaru.

The Marines become the "guests" of a poor village filled with a frustrating bureaucracy, sexy young women on the make, black marketeers, arms dealers, and odd pop culture celebrations.

On the Road With Charles Kuralt, Set 2 Award-winning journalist Charles Kuralt has been a household name for decades with his "On the Road" segments, first airing on the "CBS Evening News" with Walter Cronkite, and then as the first host of the "CBS News Sunday Morning." For 20 years beginning in 1967, Kuralt wandered America's byways in search of the unusual and the overlooked. He and his small crew logged more than a million miles and wore out six motor homes. For his homespun vignettes of everyday life, Kuralt won an Emmy and three Peabody Awards. Curious, generous, and always warm, Kuralt found everyone fascinating. The pieces here include segments on cowboys, traffic cops, short-order cooks, makers of corncob pipes, the 87-year-old college professor turned janitor who proclaimed "No honest work is undignified." He reported on a man who fixed toys, a farmer who carved slingshots, a Russian who waited 43 years to thank the American soldiers who saved his life. No story was too small, no person too ordinary. This three-disc set contains 18 episodes with a total of 86 classic "On the Road" pieces. $39.99. Extras: "About On the Road," "Road Updates," biography of Charles Kuralt. (Acorn Media).
