Ray Charles was one of the true pioneers of soul music. Born in Georgia in 1930 he was one of the first performers to mix gospel, R & B and jazz to create a new form of black pop music that would come to be known as soul. His voice and delivery were strikingly different and instantly recognizable. He had his first hits in the early 50's and was still hitting the charts into the 21st century. His death in June 2004 from liver disease was front-page news around the world. This concert was filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 19, 1997 and features Ray Charles and his orchestra, led by sax player Al Jackson, and of course The Raelettes. The set includes many of his most popular tracks such as Shadows Of My Mind, Georgia On My Mind, and the No.1 hit I Can't Stop Loving You.

Superstars George Clooney and Nicole Kidman strike sparks when they join forces to stop a nuclear terrorist in this explosive action-adventure. When a train carrying atomic warheads mysteriously crashes in the former Soviet Union, brilliant nuclear specialist Dr. Julia Kelly (Kidman) discovers the accident is really part of a diabolical plot to cover up the theft of the weapons. Assigned to help her recover the missing bombs is crack Special Forces Colonel Thomas Devoe (Clooney), whose brash, take-no-prisoners style clashes with Kelly's more diplomatic approach. Putting aside their personal difference – and their budding romance – together they race against time as they track the last remaining warhead to the steps of the United Nations in this taut apocalyptic thriller from director Mimi Leder.
