world; not only because it truly brought the documentary genre into the

January 1935. This special volume features an introduction from
Consulting Editor and long-time Tracy writer Max Allan Collins, as well

classic piece of comic book history.
A Set of Four Classic and Contemporary Bollywood Movies Donated by
Lawrence Liang (DVDs)
A brilliant set of four movies that highlight the genius and
distinctive flare that is Bollywood. The set includes Sholay, a 1975
adventure-action movie directed by Ramesh Shippy, and billed as “the
greatest story ever told.” With a little bit of everything thrown in
for good measure, from romance to drama, this is a perfect collector’s
foil. The 2007 movie Manorama (translated as Six Feet Under) is a film
noir detective story and is the highly feted directorial debut of
Award-winning movie, Kal Ho Naa Ho, produced in 2003 and directed by
Nikhil Advani, is billed as ‘a story of a lifetime … in a hearbeat!”.
This is a deeply moving portrayal as seen through the eyes of the
protagonist, Naina, who is shown a new way of life by her neighbour and
love interest, Aman. Finally, another classic from 1975, Deewaar,
directed by Yash Chopra, tells the age-old story of two brothers who
choose different ways of life, one good, one bad, and how they have to
make peace with themselves and one another.
