The Disc-less is a new bi-monthly column exploring films not available on DVD in North America.

The release of major and minor cinematic works on physical media has lead to reevaluation of cinematic history. The Disc-less hopes to point cinephiles to films still not available, as well as possible ways one can see them.

Annual Video Memorial Also Features Leslie Nielsen, Claude Chabrol, Lena Horne & Many MoreEvery December, the great Turner Classic Movies -- pretty much the sole reason this writer holds on to cable TV -- puts together a video tribute of all the tremendous talents in film we've lost that year, respectfully remembering all those dearly departed greats; from iconic actors, to lesser-known writers and producers to titan directors of cinema, it's not unlike the annual Oscar tribute. TCM Remembers 2010 has arrived and it's another loving memorial for all those who passed on this year in film. There's too many to mention -- though let's also give shout outs to John Forsythe, Jill Clayburgh, Peter Graves, Irvin Kershner, Dino De Laurentiis, Kathryn Grayson, and Dede Allen (editor of "The Hustler," "Bonnie and Clyde," "Dog Day Afternoon") -- and most of our favorites are mentioned above, put personally, pour out a little extra more for Penn, Rohmer, Hopper, Neal, Curtis and Chabrol -- losing two greats of the French New Wave hurts.
