Out on DVD today is the Ronald Reagan Signature Collection. This collection features five of the late actors best motion pictures: The Winning Team, King’s Row (which should’ve been Reagan’s breakthrough role, but it wasn’t), The Hasty Heart, Storm Warning, and Knute Rockne: All American.
I’ve seen both Knute Rockne and King’s Row. I liked them both. But I have to admit that I didn’t realize Ronald Reagan made enough movies to create a decent box set. (and I know I’m not the only person who thought that.)
Despite having a 14-year studio career, Reagan was never more than a B-list actor. Which is okay, considering he went on to do bigger, better, and more important. He was, after all, the President of the United States.
Also new on DVD today:

Eric Rohmer’s Six Moral Tales
