A cavalcade of MGM stars populates this musical omnibus, with highlights from Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, William Powell, Red Skelton, Esther Williams, Lucille Ball, Judy Garland, and many others. A must-see for fans of classic Hollywood.

Groucho, Chico and Harpo stall to extend their hotel credit while trying to mount a play - with the expected chaotic results - in this zany Marx Brothers farce. Based on the play by Allen Boretz and John Murray, ROOM SERVICE is not only a delightful showcase for the brothers themselves, but for comedienne Lucille Ball, whose presence almost makes up for the lack of Margaret Dumont!

In this classic private-eye noir, wrongly convicted shamus Bradford Galt (Mark Stevens) is sprung from prison, but bad luck sticks to his gummed shoes: Who’s the mystery man in the white suit and why won’t he leave Galt alone? What’s his connection to the big-money boys on the Upper East Side? Galt’s no Marlowe - without his loyal gal Friday (a spunky and sexy Lucille Ball), he wouldn’t make it out from behind the 8-ball alive. "I’m backed up in a dark corner," he grouses, "and I don’t know who’s hitting me." Co-starring Clifton Webb and William Bendix.
