There's Something Wrong With Aunt Diane DVD

On the afternoon of July 26, 2009, Diane Schuler drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway in New York for nearly two miles, eventually smashing into an oncoming SUV and killing herself, her daughter, three nieces, and all three people in the other car. Only her five-year-old son survived. Diane’s autopsy revealed that she had consumed the equivalent of 10 shots of vodka, and had smoked marijuana, shortly before the accident. Yet by all accounts, Diane had no history of substance abuse or psychological problems, and was generally known to be a loving and stable wife and mother. In There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane, award-winning director Liz Garbus (see below) explores the facts and speculation surrounding this tragic accident. The film follows Diane’s husband and sister-in-law, who believe that Diane may have had a medical emergency that precipitated the crash, and who hire a lawyer and PI to investigate that angle. Piecing together a minute-by minute retelling of the fateful day, along with interviews with Diane’s family and friends, victims’ families, eyewitnesses, investigators, and medical and psychiatric experts, this feature-length film reveals a complex and complicated case that has left all those involved still wondering what really happened to Aunt Diane.

The Tuskegee Airmen Blu-ray

Fireballs of high-speed air action explode off the screen in this exciting story of the “Fighting 99th” – the first squadron of Black American pilots to be allowed to fight for their country. It is 1943 and the Germans are winning the Second World War as the U.S. suffers huge losses on the ground and in the air. Four newly recruited pilots are united by a desire to serve their country, at a time when black flyers are not welcomed in the Air Force. Now, through the brutal demands of their training, to the perils of flying over nations at war, the men they call “The Tuskegee Airmen” must undertake the riskiest mission of their lives – to prove to America that courage knows no color. Their success could earn them respect, save lives, and help win a terrible war. Their failure could destroy more hopes and dreams than their own.

The Josephine Baker Story Blu-ray

Outrageous, shocking, sensational- Josephine Baker (Lynn Whitfield) was born poor, but achieved fame and fortune through her sizzlingly exotic and erotic performances. Starting life on the American Vaudeville circuit, success Josephine to Paris where her semi-nude dancing causes an international sensation. Through her marriages to Italian pseudo-count (Ruben Blades) and orchestra leader (David Dukes), to her bond with army officer Sidney Williams (Louis Gosset, Jr.), Josephine’s life is a roller coaster ride of love and rejection from both her lovers and her country. But semi-nude or head to toe in sequins; in battle fatigues or rags- her beauty and ambition ensured that Josephine Baker will always be remembered as the first, and possibly most loved, truly international star.
