The Gold Rush (1925, 1942) The first feature-length comedy by Charlie Chaplin which charts a hapless prospector's search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance (with the beautiful Georgia Hale) forever cemented the iconic status of Chaplin and his Little Tramp character. Shot partly on location in the Sierra Nevadas and featuring such timeless gags as Chaplin's dance of the dinner rolls and meal of boiled shoe leather, "The Gold Rush" is an indelible work of nonstop hilarity. This special edition features both Chaplin's definitive 1942 version, for which the director added new music and narration, and a new restoration of the original silent 1925 film. New high-definition digital restoration of the 1942 sound version, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition.

(The Criterion Collection).

Harold and Maude (1971) With the idiosyncratic American fable "Harold and Maude," countercultural director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. Working from a script by Colin Higgins ("9 to 5"), Ashby tells the story of the emotional and romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man (Bud Cort) from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian (Ruth Gordon). Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, "Harold and Maude" dissolves the line between darkness and light along with the ones that separate people by class, gender, and age, and it features indelible performances and a remarkable soundtrack by Cat Stevens. New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Extras: Optional remastered stereo soundtrack; audio commentary by Hal Ashby biographer Nick Dawson and producer Charles B. Mulvehill; illustrated audio excerpts of seminars by Ashby and writer-producer Colin Higgins; new interview with songwriter Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens); booklet featuring an essay by critic Michael Wood; a 1971 New York Times profile of star Ruth Gordon; and excerpted transcripts of two interviews, one from 1997 with star Bud Cort and director of photography John Alonzo and one from 2001 with executive producer Mildred Lewis.

Shallow Grave (1994) This diabolical thriller was the first film from director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew MacDonald, and screenwriter John Hodge (the smashing team behind "Trainspotting"). In "Shallow Grave," three self-involved Edinburgh roommates played by Kerry Fox, Christopher Eccleston and Ewan McGregor, in his first starring role take in a brooding boarder. When he dies of an overdose, leaving a suitcase full of money, the trio embark on a series of very bad decisions, with extraordinarily grim consequences for all. Macabre but with a streak of offbeat humor, this stylistically influential tale of guilt and derangement is a full-throttle bit of Hitchcockian nastiness. New, restored digital transfer, supervised by director of photography Brian Tufano, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc. Extras: Two audio commentaries: one by director Danny Boyle and the other by screenwriter John Hodge and producer Andrew Macdonald; new interviews with stars Christopher Eccleston, Kerry Fox, and Ewan McGregor; "Digging Your Own Grave," a 1993 documentary by Kevin Macdonald on the making of the film; Andrew Macdonald and Kevin Macdonald's video diary from the 1992 Edinburgh Film Festival, where they shopped around the script for "Shallow Grave"; "Shallow Grave" trailer and "Trainspotting" teaser trailer; booklet featuring an essay by critic Philip Kemp.
