The Mikado (The Criterion
The legendary Gilbert and Sullivan troupe the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company joined forces with Hollywood for this 1939 Technicolor version of the fabled comic opera, the first complete work by the famed duo to be adapted for the screen, directed by musician and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Victor Schertzinger (One Night of Love, Road to Singapore). The result is a lavish cinematic retelling of the British political satire set in exotic Japan, with such enduringly popular numbers as “A Wandering Minstrel I” and “Three Little Maids from School Are We,” and featuring performances by American singer Kenny Baker as well as a host of renowned D’Oyly Carte actors, including Martyn Green and Sydney Granville.

Groucho Marx in the
For the legendary comic actor Groucho Marx, playing the role of Ko-Ko in The Mikado "fulfilled a lifelong ambition." The Mikado was Groucho's favorite among the works of his beloved Gilbert and Sullivan, and the 1960 Bell Telephone Hour production was adapted for television and directed by Martyn Green, a man Groucho revered as an authority on interpreting the role of Ko-Ko. The strong supporting cast features distinguished veterans like Helen Traubel, Stanley Holloway, Robert Rounseville, and Dennis King, as well as young artists like the lovely soprano Barbara Meister as Yum-Yum and Groucho's 13-year-old daughter, Melinda, as Peep-Bo. Special features [46 minutes] include audio interviews with Dick Cavett, Melinda Marx, and Barbara Meister; Martyn Green in excerpts from H.M.S. Pinafore (Bell Telephone Hour, 1963, in color), cast bios, the commercials from the original telecast, and more!

41 018 - Due to its excellent construction, the 2-8-2 machine - first built in 1936 for fast goods transport - was also frequently used to pull passenger trains.

Admire the strength of the 41 018 as she draw goods and passenger trains on trips in summer and in steam-friendly winter (along the Arlberg stretch of track). There is, as always, plenty of footage from the driver' perspective and from the track, and, of course, this team spectacular is double delight - an audio visual feast - as the fans of DESTI films have come to expect. 01 1100 - Here is the fastest operable steam locomotive of the German Federal Railways today, resplendent in shiny black and red: The patrician 01-1100, a 4-6-2,196-ton beauty capable of 87.5 mph!

Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane and Quentin Crisp star in this "hip, sexy and wickedly funny" film based on the gender-bending novel by Virginia Woolf. Swinton stars as Orlando, an English nobleman who defies the law of nature with surprising results. Immortal and highly imaginative, he undergoes a series of extraordinary transformations which humorously and hauntingly illustrate the eternal war between the sexes. Visually stunning and beautifully acted, ORLANDO is an intoxicating blend of romance, adventure and illusion.
