Eureka Entertainment to release A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN, Elia Kazan’s heartfelt and sentimental first feature, presented on Blu-ray from a 2K restoration as a part of The Masters of Cinemas Series from 22 July 2019. Director Elia Kazan's first film, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn shows that the filmmaker's great empathy for his characters was already quite evident at this early juncture, and this endures as one of the most moving Hollywood dramas of the 1940s. Based on Betty Smith's novel – a bestseller in the U.S. but also one of the most popular books among American soldiers overseas in WWII – Kazan's debut is a sensitive, masterful adaptation. Set among Brooklyn tenements circa 1912, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a portrait of the Nolans, an Irish-American family living in financially challenging circumstances, often made worse by father Johnny's drinking and employment problems. But matriarch Katie keeps the family together during all of the obstacles, caring for son Neeley and daughter Francie, as well as Katie's outspoken, oft-married sister Sissy. But just as Francie's gift for writing opens up new avenues, more tragic developments test the family's resolve. Winning Academy Awards for actors James Dunn (as Johnny) and Peggy Ann Garner (as Francie), and featuring splendid work by Dorothy McGuire and Joan Blondell, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a heartfelt testament to the strength of family, and offers an early indication of Kazan's unrivalled proficiency with actors. Special Features: 1080p transfer of the film on Blu-ray from a 2K restoration completed from a 4K scan of the original film elements Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing Feature-length commentary by Richard Schickel with Elia Kazan, Ted Donaldson, and Normal Lloyd The Making of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn An Appreciation of Dorothy McGuire A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – Hollywood Star Time: Original radio broadcast version of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn from 1946, starring Peggy Ann Garner, James Dunn and Joseph Kearns PLUS: a collector’s booklet featuring new essays by Kat Ellinger, Phil Hoad, and Philip Kemp, alongside rare archival imagery

Johnny's big sister Betty would tease him about his comic book on a daily basis, and say things like, "Johnny if you don't stop reading those stupid comic books the boogeyman is going to get you." She would come in his room and yank the comic book out of his hands and throw it across the room. The more his sister tormented him, the more anger for his sister was mounting. Finally one night as he was reading about the boogeyman his sister yanked the comic book out of his hands and started tearing the pages out of the comic book. She said as she was laughing "Sorry, Johnny, but it's for your own good."Johnny replied, "I wish you were dead." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Luke Smith.

Lee and Johnny Scott are back, and so is Old Sam in this sequel to Old Sam, Dakota Trotter. Despite the disfiguring injury that ended Old Sam's career as a champion thoroughbred trotter, he is still as fast and as canny as ever, an indispensable help for the Scott family in their new home. Then, Old Sam mysteriously goes missing. Johnny figures that any thief who dares to steal that horse will soon be sorry. With the help of Lee and their gang of friends, Johnny soon has things well in hand, finding Old Sam's track, setting up a communication system that works with mirrors and well-placed minions, and generally running circles around his elders. And, of course, Old Sam does not let his boys down. That Johnny also encounters some sobering moments in his headlong pursuit of justice is a sad, perhaps unavoidable consequence in a way of life still on the fringes of civilized society.Both books about Old Sam and the Scott family are based on the author's true-life homesteading experiences in what is now the southeastern region of the state of North Dakota. 1.
