Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment proudly present TCM Showcase: Claudette Colbert, a brand new collection of films featuring the playful and sophisticated star. With her mix of intelligence, beauty and easy humor, Colbert would become famous for her roles in comedies, melodramas and historical epics during a career that lasted 34 years. In over 60 films, she worked with some of Hollywood’s most talented directors, including Cecil B. DeMille (The Ten Commandments, 1956) and Preston Sturges (The Lady Eve, 1941), whose work is showcased in this collection of four classic Colbert films:

CLEOPATRA (1934)—Colbert is Cleopatra in this stylish and lavish portrayal of the notorious Egyptian empress's love for Roman general Marc Antony, helmed by legendary director Cecil B. DeMille.

IMITATION OF LIFE (1934)—Two women—one white, one black—form an enduring friendship as they struggle through financial hardship and racial prejudice to raise their daughters. Named one of the "25 Most Important Films on Race."

MIDNIGHT (1939)—Colbert sparkles as an out-of-work American showgirl caught up in Parisian high society in this romantic comedy co-starring Don Ameche, John Barrymore and Mary Astor, written by Billy Wilder (Some Like It Hot, 1959).

THE PALM BEACH STORY (1942)—Complications abound in this screwball comedy with Colbert and Joel McCrea playing two sets of identical twins who marry one another's sweethearts, then are forced by financial troubles to seek more profitable liaisons. Written and directed by the legendary Preston Sturges (The Lady Eve, 1941).
