Imitation Of Life, one of the most beloved and respected stories of all time, is now available in a new two movie special edition!

                    As a handicapped movie lover with very limited mobility, I'm so happy to be able to find some of the great movies I love and grew up with by simply ordering them online. This is a new experieince for me making it possible to still "attend the movies" in the privacy of my home and I am loving coming into the 21st century. Also, I feel that your prices are reasonable. Thank you!

                            This movie beautifully illustrates the heartbreaking, bias, shame and guilt of the time, while masterfully touching on the beauty that can grow in difficult times.

                            A must see!
