Garv’s Pick of the Week: Ernie Kovacs: Take a Good Look (Shout! Factory)

Our weekly new release recommendations

For the release week of 10/17/17:

Garv’s Pick of the Week:Ernie Kovacs: Take A Good Look: The Definitive Collection [DVD / Shout Factory]: The fact that this is my “pick of the week” should come as no surprise, as I recently reviewed this 7-disc box set and called it the “video release of the year.”  The collection contains all 49 surviving episodes of Ernie Kovacs’ bizarro sketch comedy/game show hybrid.  This incredibly entertaining release gets my very highest recommendation!  Check out my full review here.

Additional Titles of Interest — 

Green Acres: The Complete Series [DVD / Shout Factory]: It is truly a stellar week for TV on DVD!  The most surreal sitcom of the Sixties also arrives on video in a complete series set.

Barry Lyndon [Blu-ray / Criterion]: Stanley Kubrick’s masterful adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray‘s novel gets the Criterion treatment.

Batman vs. Two-Face (BD) [Blu-ray / Warner]: Adam West’s final film is a return to his most famous role.  West is joined by fellow Batman alums Burt Ward and Julie Newmar, plus special guest villain William Shatner.

Lon Chaney: Before the Thousand Faces [DVD / Undercrank Productions]:  Three previously unreleased films by Lon Chaney get a DVD debut.

Whispering Shadows (1921) [DVD / Undercrank Productions]: Also arriving on DVD is this occult-themed silent.
