Eclipse Series 27: Raffaello Matarazzo's Runaway Melodramas In the late 1940s and early 1950s, film critics, international festivalgoers, and other studious viewers were swept up by the tide of Italian neorealism. Meanwhile, mainstream Italian audiences were indulging in a different kind of cinema experience: The sensational, extravagant melodramas of superstar director Raffaello Matarazzo. These galvanic hits about splintered lovers and broken homes, all written by Aldo De Benedetti and starring mustached matinee idol Amedeo Nazzari and icon of feminine purity Yvonne Sanson, luxuriate in delirious plot twists and overheated religious symbolism. Four of them, each more unbridled and entertaining than the last, are collected here, chronicles of men and women on winding roads to redemption: "Chains" (1949), "Tormento" (1950), "Nobody's Children" (1952) and "The White Angel" (1955). $59.95. (The Criterion Collection).

Also available on Blu-ray Disc. (Anchor Bay).

Kiss Me Deadly (1955) In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane's novel, directed by Robert Aldrich, the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways. Brazen and bleak, "Kiss Me Deadly" is a film noir masterpiece as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema. New high-definition restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Extras: Commentary by film noir specialists Alain Silver and James Ursini; new video tribute from director Alex Cox; excerpts from "The Long Haul of A. I. Bezzerides," a 2005 documentary on the "Kiss Me Deadly" screenwriter; excerpts from "Mike Hammer's Mickey Spillane," a 1998 documentary on the author whose book inspired the film; a look at the film's locations; altered ending; booklet featuring an essay by critic J. Hoberman and a 1955 reprint by director Robert Aldrich. Also available on Blu-ray Disc. (The Criterion Collection).
