The dramas starring Shirley Temple and Bette Davis are heading to Blu-ray in March and April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Classicflix is preparing 'Another Man's Poison' for Blu-ray on March 28 and 'Miss Annie Rooney' for Blu-ray on April 4.

'Another Man's Poison' (March 28) - In her first role since starring as Margo Channing in the Academy Award®-winning All About Eve (Best Picture, 1950), Bette Davis plays mystery writer Janet Frobisher, a cold and conniving woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants -- and what she wants at the moment is her secretary’s fiancé Larry (Anthony Steel). But Janet’s plan hits a snag when her estranged husband shows up unannounced after attempting to rob a bank. Her husband’s partner in crime, George (played by real-life husband Gary Merrill), further complicates matters for Janet when he pays her a visit later the same day. Getting rid of one of them proved easy. The other, not so much. Filmed in England and co-produced by Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Another Man’s Poison presents the dynamic Bette Davis at her devious and beguiling best.

'Miss Annie Rooney' (April 4) - It’s spring in the Rooney household, and starry-eyed Annie dreams of blossoming love. Her father dreams of something more tangible -- to be parked on easy street. But in their working-class Irish neighborhood, the odds are against them both. Shirley Temple stars in the title role of Miss Annie Rooney and displays all the endearing charms that made her America’s little sweetheart. Along the way, Annie jitterbugs a path straight into the heart of Marty (Our Gang alum Dickie Moore) who may fulfill the hopes of both Annie and her father. Co-starring William Gargan and Shirley’s Captain January co-star Guy Kibbee, and featuring Peggy Ryan, Roland Dupree and June Lockhart, Miss Annie Rooney is a fun, heart-warming treat that all Shirley Temple fans will enjoy!
