Amazing DVD box sets! CHAPLIN! MONROE! WELLES! LEAN! HESTON!

ATTENTION MOVIE BUFFS 
AND FILM SCHOLARS!

Check out these amazing DVD box sets that will thicken up your film collection but not thin out your wallet!







Essential 10 DVD box set containing 10 of the English actor/director's finest films. Chaplin may be best remembered for his slapstick comedy skills, but his films, which he wrote, directed, scored and starred in, touched on many controversial subjects throughout his career. Over three decades after his death, Chaplin is still considered one of the true geniuses of film making and is totally deserving of the terms 'legend' and 'icon'. This 10 disc set includes The Kid, A Woman Of Paris, The Gold Rush, The Circus, City Lights, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, Monsieur Verdoux, Limelight and A King In New York (his last starring role in one of his feature films).




Essential 10 DVD box set containing nine of the Hollywood icon's finest films plus a biopic on her life. Marilyn Monroe was born to be in pictures and grace the pages of magazines. Her beauty, her charm and her charisma are the stuff of legend and she continues to be an inspiration nearly 50 years after her death. The films featured in this set include Monkey Business, Don't Bother to Knock, Niagara, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How To Marry A Millionaire, There's No Business Like Show Business, River of No Return, The Seven Year Itch and Bus Stop plus the biopic Norma Jean And Marilyn starring Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino.
