Eureka Entertainment to release THE INCIDENT, the raw and intense 1967 New York thriller featuring Martin Sheen, Tony Musante and an ensemble cast, making its WORLDWIDE DEBUT on Blu-ray in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition as part of the Eureka Classics range from 12 August 2019. A riveting urban tension thriller, and a fantastic snapshot of 1967 New York City in all its seedy, black-and-white glory, The Incident also features an iconic 60s cast that must be seen to be believed. Martin Sheen makes his feature film debut as one of two small-time hoods – the other is Tony Musante (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) in one of his earliest roles – terrorising a subway car full of trapped passengers, portrayed by an ensemble cast including Thelma Ritter (Rear Window), Beau Bridges (The Fabulous Baker Boys), Ed McMahon, Donna Mills (Play Misty for Me), Jack Gilford (Save the Tiger), Brock Peters (To Kill a Mockingbird), Ruby Dee (A Raisin in the Sun), and a host of other instantly recognisable faces from NYC films and television of the era. After mugging an old man for a few dollars, thugs Artie (Sheen) and Joe (Musante) hop a subway deep in the Bronx, and proceed to threaten and intimidate the Sunday night commuters all the way to Times Square. The terrified riders are a mixed group – an elderly Jewish couple, a family trying to protect their 5-year-old daughter, an alcoholic, two teens on a date, two military Privates, a bigoted African-American man and his wife, etc. – but they are united by their fear and sense of helplessness as switchblade-wielding Joe and Artie block the subway doors from opening at stops, and prevent the riders from leaving. Will any of them have the courage to confront the two maniacs? A high-velocity “home invasion”-styled hostage drama on rails, The Incident is a NYC transit suspense film that precedes the better-known The Taking of Pelham One Two Three by seven years. When director Larry Peerce (Goodbye, Columbus) and cinematographer Gerald Hirschfeld (Young Frankenstein) were denied permission to shoot in the NYC subways, they did it anyway, using concealed cameras for some footage, providing a gritty time capsule of the 60s Big Apple as it begins to rot.

The story that inspired the famous Twilight Zone episode! "People Are Alike All Over" (which starred Roddy McDowall) became one of the most famous episodes of that classic television series. That memorable script was adapted from veteran science fiction author Paul W. Fairman's story for Fantastic Adventures magazine, where it was published under it's original title "Brothers Beyond the Void". As the original magazine blurb described it, "To Marcusson, the thought that people are the same everywhere was comforting. Until he learned that sameness was the very thing he was fighting against!" Eerily familiar and similar to the television version, yet hauntingly different and unique, Fairman's story is wonderful by itself. But for media fans, and especially for fans of the The Twilight Zone, it offers a fascinating example of the skills and the art of adapting a story for the screen and offers a textbook case of how Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling altered and refocused good stories to make them work even better for television.This first ever audio dramatization of "People Are Alike All Over" is prefaced by introductory comments about the author, the story, and the Twilight Zone television show. Enhanced with music and sound effects this REB Audio Book was adapted, produced and performed for this presentation by Bill Mills. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Mills.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde's only novel, perhaps because he realized that he could never again equal this timeless masterpiece. It is a unique work, both thought-provoking and horrifying. It vacillates between seemingly aimless conversation and riveting narrative in telling the story of a young man's quest for eternal youth and beauty, a quest that ends in scandal and depravity. It has been adapted numerous times for television, film, and the stage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grenville Peter Mills.

A new dramatization of the story that inspired the famous episode of The Twilight Zone! A wealthy businessman strikes a deal with Satan to return to the days of his youth...Malcolm Jameson's short story "Blind Alley" is probably his best remembered and most reprinted work due in large part to the fact that it was the basis for a very memorable episode of Rod Serling's popular television series "The Twilight Zone" titled "Of Late I Think Of Cliffordville". Jameson was active in American pulp magazines during the Golden Age of Science Fiction, with over a hundred short stories and essays published between 1938 and 1946 in popular magazines of the day such as Startling Stories, Astounding Science-Fiction, Thrilling Wonder Stories and Super Science Novels Magazine. And in 1963 his short story "Blind Alley", first published in 1943, was adapted by Rod Serling as a teleplay for his landmark science fiction series "The Twilight Zone". Serling made many changes to Jameson's original story. But, with his typically imaginative approach Serling kept the essense of the story reasonably intact. The television episode first aired on April 11, 1963 and today still ranks high on the lists of Twilight Zone fans as one of the best of that classic series. We think that listeners will delight in the delicious differences between that televised version and the original manuscript as it was published in the June 1943 issue of Unknown Worlds Magazine. This audio presentation is preceded by an informative introduction written by Jean Marie Stine. Hear the original short story that started it all, "Blind Alley", dramatized by a talented vocal cast and enhanced with music and sound effects. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Mills, Don Miller, Ross Chamberlain, Roxanne Mills, John Hardin, Arnie Katz, Joyce Worley Katz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/pf/rebb/000013/pf_rebb_000013_sample.mp3.
