PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Our featured video this week is a major Hollywood achievment and considered by many to be the greatest love story ever.   It’s the 70th anniversary of Casablanca, with Bogart and Bacall, which comes as a three-disk Blu-ray gift set packing commentators, cartoons, even legitimate French posters.

A more recent release: The Girl WithThe Dragon Tatoo, the first of a three-picture adaptation which has sold 50 million copies in 46 countries.

And, from 1948, a re-release of John Ford’s Fort Apache, among the first of the so-called “pro-Indian” westerns.  This one features Shirley Temple, John Wayne, and Henry Fonda.
