Naked City - New 3-disc box with 12 never- before-on-DVD episodes!

After taking a year off from DVD releases, Naked City is back on disc from Image Entertainment. But not in a dinky single-disc release anymore! Nope, this time around you get a 3-disc box set with an even dozen stories never before seen on DVD! That still leaves over a hundred installments still not on disc yet, but it brings us closer than any previous release.

Gritty and realistic, 1958's Naked City is one of television's finest police dramas. Filmed on the streets of New York City, this ever-popular series puts a human face on crime, going beyond a simplistic portrayal of good vs. evil to delve into the complex personal dramas of the people involved. Filled with swift-moving action, the stories are often violent and tragic but also contain their share of humor, absurdity and even fairy tale romance. Starring Paul Burke and Horace McMahon, this landmark collection features many top film and television actors in guest-starring roles.

Episodes include: "The Fault in Our Stars" (Season 2, Episode 20), "A Memory of Crying" (Season 2, Episode 22), "Make-Believe Man" (Season 2, Episode 27), "Take and Put" (Season 2, Episode 32), "The Fingers of Henri Tourelle" (Season 3, Episode 4), "Which Is Joseph Creeley?" (Season 3, Episode 7), "Requiem for a Sunday Afternoon" (Season 3, Episode 10), "Ooftus Goofus" (Season 3, Episode 11), "The Face of the Enemy" (Season 3, Episode 13), "The Contract" (Season 3, Episode 16), "Let Me Die Before I Wake" (Season 3, Episode 19), and "To Walk Like a Lion" (Season 3, Episode 20).

Guest stars in these episodes include Roddy McDowall, Maureen Stapleton, Mickey Rooney, Jack Klugman, and Martin Balsam...as noted on the box cover below. Robert Loggia also shows up, along with Murray Hamilton, Audra Lindley, Sorrell Booke, Kim Hunter, James Farentino, and Orson Bean.

May 3rd is the release date for Naked City - Box Set #1. $29.99 SRP, 3 DVDs, 615 minutes. Full-frame black-and-white video, English mono audio. And, even though this is now a multi-disc box set, the cover art looks very consistant with the previous releases. Take a look:
