GIVEAWAY: One Mayerling DVD starring Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer AND one DVD of your choice from our website
This 1957 television “spectacular” starred real life just-married Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer in their television premiere — the second of their two “on screen” appearances together. (Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer also starred in Dino de Laurentiis Production of War and Peace, 1956.) This hugely-expensive LIVE television production was broadcast just once, over NBC, on February 24, 1957. The primitive archival film copy has been digitally mastered from the original kinescope negative and released on our new “Mr. FAT-W Video” silver and blue label.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”"
