Handsome boxed sets of DVDs are a joy to behold, and a pair of especially enticing ones have been recently released, one the latest in a series, the other the first of its kind.
The latest “Forbidden Hollywood” collection from Warner Archives is Volume 10 in the series specializing in boundary-pushing pre-Code studio movies. Titles include items like “Guilty Hands” and “Secrets of the French Police,” but I am especially looking forward to “Ever In My Heart” starring the always reliable Barbara Stanwyck.
Speaking of reliable, no one ever played Cary Grant like Cary Grant, and Universal is bringing out a marvelous boxed set called “Cary Grant: The Vault Collection,” which presents 18 films with the fine actor, all released between 1932 and 1936 and including his classics with Mae West, “She Done Him Wrong” and “I’m No Angel.” Actors worked hard in those days, they really did. – Kenneth Turan
