Art Theft and the Case of the Stolen
In 1994 two important paintings by J.M.W. Turner—then valued at twenty-four million pounds—were stolen from a German public gallery while on loan from Tate Britain. In this vivid, personal account, Sandy Nairne who was then Director of Programmes at the Tate and became centrally involved in the pursuit of the paintings and the negotiations for their return, retells this complex, 8-year, cloak-and-dagger story, which finally concluded in 2002 with the pictures returning to public display at the Tate. In addition to this thrilling narrative, Nairne unravels stories of other high-value art thefts, puzzling what motivates a thief to steal a well-known work of art that cannot be sold, even on the black market. Nairne also examines the role of art theft within the larger underworld of international looting and illicit deals among art and antique collectors. The art heist, of course, is a popular theme of crime novels and films, and Nairne considers these depictions as well, investigating the imaginative construction of the art thief, the specialist detective, and the mysterious collector. Art Theft and the Case of the Stolen Turners is a compelling, real-life detective story that will keep both art and mystery lovers eagerly turning pages.

It's 1936 Paris and every femme with a de rigueur sense of high fashion wears the creations of Maison Picot, the design house that's so chic, so trendy...and so very much a house of cards. It's secretly used by financial flimflammer Stefan Orloff as entry to the highest level of society, a level from which he and elegant Nicole Picot are destined to take a very hard fall. As Picot, star KayFrancis finds a perfect role for her trademark blend of '30s sophistication and couture.

To echo a line from the most famous Rains-Curtiz collaboration, Stolen Holiday is the beginning of a beautiful screen friendship.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
