A remarkable story of how a group of inspired mavericks made an unlikely marriage of hip-hop and history to create the biggest show on Broadway…and strangely apropos to what is happening in politics today. Featuring interviews with Miranda, as well as the cast and crew of Hamilton.

The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.

In The Mark Of Zorro, his first full-blown effort at the costume thriller, Fairbanks portrays Don Diego Vega, a comically effete young nobleman with a taste for tasseled sombreros and juvenile silk-hanky magic tricks. But when danger calls, Diego swathes himself in black, straps on a well-honed sword and storms the countryside as the mysterious Zorro, slicing his initial into the faces of the "sentinels of oppression"...

Sam Shepard was know by many as an Oscar-nominated Hollywood actor. But Shepard was also a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, director, and actor.

"One of the most important and influential early writers in the Off Broadway movement, Mr. Shepard captured and chronicled the darker sides of American family life...He was widely regarded as one of the most original voices of his generation, winning praise from critics for his searing portraits of spouses, siblings and lovers struggling with issues of identity, failure and the fleeting nature of the American dream." - New York Times

 

The story of how seven cocky pilots became the astronauts of Project Mercury and pioneered America's launch into the space race.

"Sir Roger Moore, who has died aged 89, brought a lighter touch to the role of James Bond, the role for which he was most famous. Out went the harder, crueler edge of Sean Connery's 007 to be succeeded by sardonic humour and the inevitable raised eyebrow. He eventually became the longest-serving actor in the role, his seven Bond films becoming the most commercially successful of the franchise." (BBC Obituary

Take a look at our collection of DVDs and books featuring the talents of Moore.
