George Cukor's remake of the 1940 film Gaslight is the story of a beautiful, innocent woman (Ingrid Bergman) who marries a charming man (Charles Boyer) who tries to drive her insane. Boasting a lavish, detailed production that perfectly recreates the Victorian era, Gaslight is one of the greatest psychological thrillers ever made, thanks to Bergman's stellar, Oscar-winning performance.

Les Girls is the Rashomon of MGM musicals. The film is told in flashback, as Mitzi Gaynor and Taina Elg, two-thirds of a popular cabaret trio, attempt to legally block the third, Kay Kendall, from writing her memoirs. Each of "Les Girls" has her own interpretation of the group's previous professional and amorous escapades.

My Fair Lady: 50th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray)

Few musicals have ever captured the hearts of viewers as thoroughly as this lavish cinematic confection. Adapted by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady was a hit on Broadway before becoming a movie that went on to win eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Directed by George Cukor (The Philadelphia Story), My Fair Lady is a monument to Hollywood artifice, portraying a world where the London slums are spotless, and even the poor and destitute break into song and dance at the slightest provocation. Audrey Hepburn’s portrayal of the Covent Garden flower girl who is transformed into a lady ranks among the star’s most indelible performances.
