The off-camera friendship of James Stewart and Henry Fonda goes back to their days as struggling actors and roommates. The Cheyenne Social Club [Side A] casts them as saddle-weary Texans who, surprised to find they've inherited a Wyoming bawdy house, feel honor-bound to defend it against a gun-wielding gang. Gene Kelly produces and directs this mix of fun and Western action. Next comes a firestorm of character-driven excitement in Firecreek [Side B]. Fonda plays an outlaw preying on small towns, and Stewart is the jittery, $2-a-month part-time lawman who must find the courage to stop him. This will be some showdown!

Hoot: Carl Hiaasen's Newbery-winning young adult novel with an eco-awareness message comes to the screen with the help of Hiaasen buddy Jimmy Buffet, who produces, provides original music, and even has a small role. The stars, however, are a trio of teens -- new kid Logan Lerman, tough-girl soccer jock Brie Larson, and barefoot eco-warrior Cody Linley -- who band together to save a burrowing owl breeding ground from being bulldozed under by a pancake house franchise.

The gorgeous postcard photography of the Gulf Coast beaches, waterways and wildlife brings their mission to life.

Knute Rockne All American: "I've decided to take up coaching as my life work," Knute Rockne says. Coach he does, revolutionizing football with his strategies, winning close to 90 percent of his games, and helping establish the University of Notre Dame's Fighting Irish as a gridiron powerhouse. But victories alone do not mean success to Rockne. He wants to shape his players into responsible and honorable men. This famed sports biopic combines a passion for the game (and footage of actual Notre Dame contests) with two superb performances: Pat O'Brien in the title role and Ronald Reagan as George Gipp, the gifted but doomed halfback whose deathbed plea is "win just one for the Gipper." The line remains one of cinema's most memorable. And for the rest of his life, Reagan would often be called the Gipper.
