Format: DVD
Found this for 99p in local Cash Converters and thought, 'why not, for the price'. It has three movies on one disc, all accessible from the home menu.

Joan Crawford's highly melodramatic 'Rain' from 1932, ably directed by the usually brilliant Lewis Milestone is the best and probably best known of the three films here. It's based on Somerset Maugham story about Sadie Thompson, an American prostitute and also stars Walter Houston. 93mins. DVD quality is typical of the period - fairly poor.

Carole Lombard's 'The Racketeer' from 1929 is a stagey but quite entertaining short (66mins) gangster flick. It looks, frankly, quite dreadful, but in a vintage charming way. You'll have trouble hearing all the dialogue too. Leonard Maltin, in his Classic Movie Guide rates the movie quite lowly but recommends for seeing an early Lombard.

Ginger Rogers' 'Shriek in the Night' is a hoary old (very) slightly scary horror murder mystery. It's rather forgettable and has lots of 'hiss' on the soundtrack. From 1933. 66mins. Ginger does no dancing and this is got an average rating from Mr Maltin. My least favourite of all three, here.

So, not bad a set if you can get it cheap, the highlight being 'Rain'. The back of the case does not reveal any DVD extras.
