DVD Debut of Emmy® Winning TV Series
Hits at Height of Award Season Buzz!

January 20, 2009

Burbank, Calif. October 8, 2008 - The movies changed forever on April 24, 1924 when a new studio, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, opened in Hollywood and soon assembled "more stars than there are in the heavens."

Patrick Stewart hosts the debut DVD version of MGM: When the Lion Roars, an enthralling three-part Emmy Award® winning TV series (Best Informational Series) that tells the story of the legendary "Dream Factory's" reign as the movies' class act and entertainment empire.

Louis B. Mayer, Joan Crawford, Stanley Donen, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Jean Harlow, Helen Hayes, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kelly, Myrna Loy, Mickey Rooney, Dore Schary, Norma Shearer, Elizabeth Taylor, Irving Thalberg, Spencer Tracy and Esther Williams are some of the MGM greats featured in memorable film clips, rare interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

This is a "mother lode" for film fans, profiling perfectionist moguls, glamorous and charismatic actors, innovative filmmakers and landmark movies of drama, romance, sweeping epic adventure and, of course, singing and dancing.

The two two-disc DVD set will sell for $29.98 SRP.

Street Date: January 20, 2009
Collection: $29.98 SRP
