Product Description

SYNOPSIS: Iconic American filmmaker Samuel Fuller began his career as a tabloid reporter, and thrillingly drew on those skills and experiences in his extraordinary labour-of-love Park Row. An exhilarating tribute to the ideals of the free press and noble popular journalism, this two-fisted tale of battles on and off the printed page in 1880s New York is a major American rediscovery.

When Phineas Mitchell (Gene Evans), a visionary newspaperman, launches his own title The Globe, his eye-catching headlines and approach quickly catch fire with the New York readership. But less impressed is Charity Hackett (Mary Welch), proprietor of long-established rival The Star, and attempts to undercut The Globe soon escalate into all-out war.

Packing more dynamite into eight reels than most directors unleash over a career, Fuller's self-financed Park Row is a passionate, idiosyncratic work of gritty myth-making. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Park Row for the first time for home viewing in the UK, released in the UK on DVD on 22 October 2012.

  • New digital progressive transfer in the film's original aspect ratio
  • Isolated music and effects track
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired
  • Illustrated booklet featuring the words of Fuller, rare archival imagery, and more Further details to be announced nearer the release date!


" Park Row is one of the greatest love letters in the history of film, and it's a love letter to journalism." --Quentin Tarantino

"Brimming with passion and conviction - just like its hero, and its creator." --Leonard Maltin

" Park Row continues to stun through its outrageousness, which at inspired moments becomes a worship of pure energy." --Jonathan Rosenbaum, Film Comment

Bad batch of dvds 22 Jun. 2011
By K. Beck - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I, too received the wrong movie when I ordered Park Row. Amazon and the manufacturer are both aware of the mixup. I received an email from Amazon about a week ago stating that they have gotten a new shipment of corrected Park Row dvds, and they will mail me one within the next week. Haven't heard anything more yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed as I've wanted to see this title for a long time!
If you want this title just wait a couple of weeks before ordering it and Amazon should mail you the correct one.
UPDATE: Just got my corrected copy of Park Row from Amazon. They have the right movie now so no one should hesitate to order. Love the movie!! Transfer looks good too.

Right DVD CASE-- WRONG MOVIE on Disc! 11 Jun. 2011
By Dana Gillespie - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Park Row" is the one Sam Fuller movie that many Fuller fans (including me) have been waiting for....well, the wait continues.
I received my copy of "Park Row" this week. Both the DVD case, and the disc itself are labeled "Park Row." However, when I went to play it, the film "Harry in Your Pocket" was on the disc, NOT "Park Row."

I'm going to return it to Amazon, but since I've discovered that I'm not the only one this has happened to, I will NOT ask for a replacement.
I'm going to opt for a refund.

The first DVD company that manufactured these "MGM Movies-On-Demand" discs was dumped because of mistakes like this (as well as lots of 'freeze-up' image problems, and discs that wouldn't load properly).
Now, it looks at though this 2nd manufacturer of MGM's M.O.D. products is just as bad as the first manufacturer.

I got stuck with some of the first MGM line. My set of "Highway Patrol, Season One" is chock full of problems, but because it's a 12-disc set, I didn't catch the problems until after the 45-day warranty ran out.
Now, Amazon won't take back that 12-disc set, so I'm just out the $50++ cost.
Well, it won't happen again.

Once I get my refund on "Park Row," I'm finished with this MGM M.O.D. line.

If ever there was a case of "let the buyer beware," this is it.

Citizen Kane with FEEELING! 14 July 2012
By DoMeNiQuE CoE - Published on
Format: DVD
such a treasure of history of late 19th century newspaper business, Sam took on the whole enchilada with impressive results! Some technical detail that was hard to appreciate, Mergenthaler's Linotype machine seemed surreal and the tactics utilized by competitors demonstrates the guerilla warfare typically employed by smaller dictatorships to remain in control... surprised the ending alluded to the goodwill of man, (or in this case woman), with talent and hard work prevailing... high recommend for printing press tech and overcoming many odds to achieve a dream...

Linotype! That's a good name for it. 8 Oct. 2012
By Blitzkrieg - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a film that Sam Fuller wrote, directed, produced, and paid for himself. It really captures the time period it is portraying with great sets and costumes. It never tries too hard to tell anything more than the story it sets out to, the birth of the modern newspaper. For those who only know Sam's pulp fiction films, don't expect that sort of thing with Park Row. His love of the subject was personal and great, since Sam himself had worked in the paper's, before he joined up to fight the Nazi's in North Africa. His fondness of the pioneers of modern print comes through in every written word of the script and spoken by the great actor's who inhabit the film. It's a valentine to the industry that gave him his first career and jump started his love of storytelling.

The print for this release is mostly in good shape and does not detract from the viewing experience.
