      NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD AND VHS

      "Spy Kids"
      ...available here. Carmen and Juni Cortez will soon find out that their favorite bedtime story, "The Spies Who Fell in Love," is really the story of their parents. So begins this affable fantasy, a James Bond adventure for wee ones with all the trimmings. When Dad and Mom (Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino) mess up their first mission after coming out of retirement, their kids must come to the rescue, equipped with some cool gadgets.

      "Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific"
      ...available here. TV has taken up the slack in keeping the musical (dead on the big screen) in front of audiences. This 2001 adaptation of the smash 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway show, drawn from James Michener's Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Tales of the South Pacific," is an admirable case in point. The production was a labor of love for Glenn Close, who is clearly too old to play "cockeyed optimist" Nellie Forbush but who throws herself....

      "Anne Frank - The Whole Story"
      ...available here. "Anne Frank: The Whole Story" delivers exactly what it promises: the incredibly moving complete story of Anne Frank, going beyond what the Jewish teenage girl wrote in her widely read diary. Anne, along with her family and friends of her family, hid in a secret annex behind her father's office in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation of Holland. She dutifully kept a diary, which became a worldwide...

      THE POOH-BAH OF VIDEO AND OTHER GREAT HITS

      "The Book of Pooh - Fun With Words"
      ...available here. Where do words go when they are not spoken? Such elegant Pooh ponderings are what make "Book of Pooh" vintage A.A. Milne, though it is not Milne at all but Disney's nostalgic nod to the classic British characters of the Hundred Acre Wood. "Fun with Words" is equally as magical as its predecessor, "Stories from the Heart," featuring lifelike puppetry in a sparkling setting (reminiscent of "Bear in the Big Blue House," which shares the same executive producer, Mitchell Kriegman). Though the title...

      "The Hand Behind the Mouse - The Ub Iwerks Story"
      ...available here. In this 1999 documentary, Leslie Iwerks offers viewers a look at the work of her grandfather, one of the unsung giants of animation and film technology. Ub Iwerks (1901-1971) was a teenager in Kansas City when he and his friend Walt Disney taught themselves animation. In 1928, Iwerks designed Mickey Mouse's physical appearance and animated the first three Mickey shorts almost single-handedly. He left Disney...

      WORD FOR WORD

      "A llama?! He's supposed to be dead!" --Yzma (Eartha Kitt), whose slightly altered curse creates "The Emperor's New Groove." Disney's latest animation feature is coming to DVD in May in standard and ultimate collector's editions.
      ...Disney DVD here.
      Charming tale of a good witch (Angela Lansbury) who helps out three children in World War II England. Star David Tomlinson reteams with his "Mary Poppins" director Robert Stevenson with solid success. Winner of the Oscar for Visual Effects (and nominated for five others), the film has been shortened over the years. This 30th-anniversary edition is restored to the original length, and the DVD contains cartoon shorts, a still-frame art gallery, and behind-the-scenes coverage.

      "The Sword in the Stone"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      The King Arthur legend gets the Disney treatment. Wolfgang Reitherman, the director of the original "Winnie the Pooh" shorts and "The Jungle Book," keeps the keen visual styles of those films, though the "Stone" script hasn't aged as well as other Disney classics. The DVD contains cartoon shorts, a still-frame art and photo gallery, and a 1957 half-hour TV special on magic hosted by Walt Disney.

      "Remember the Titans (Widescreen Edition)"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      With only one major star (Denzel Washington), an appealing cast of fresh unknowns, and a winning emphasis on substance over self-indulgent style, Boaz Yakin's "Remember the Titans" is, like "Rudy" before it, a football movie that will be fondly remembered by anyone who sees it. Also available in a full-screen format.

      ALSO AVAILABLE

      "Toy Story"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      --Groundbreaking computer-animated feature in a single-disc edition
