New on DVD: Alexandre Dumas Swashbucklers

Henstooth Video is releasing DVDs of three films based on Alexandre Dumas classics: THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (1934), THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK (1939), and THE CORSICAN BROTHERS (1941).

THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, starring Robert Donat, was released on DVD last week. (Thanks to Kristina's Shopping List at Speakeasy for the tip!) It costars Elissa Landi, Louis Calhern, and Sidney Blackmer.

Tomorrow, February 14th, THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK will be out on DVD. This version stars Louis Hayward, Joan Bennett, and Warren William; it was directed by James Whale.

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. fans should be pleased with the release of THE CORSICAN BROTHERS, in which he plays both title roles! The leading lady is Ruth Warrick, in her first film following her debut in CITIZEN KANE (1941). The supporting cast includes Henry Wilcoxon, Akim Tamiroff, J. Carrol Naish, and H.B. Warner.

THE CORSICAN BROTHERS will be released on DVD April 3, 2012.

ClassicFlix mentions that Henstooth will also release Randolph Scott in THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS (1936) to DVD on April 10th.
