PARADE’S END Viewers who enjoyed the BBC miniseries adapted from Ford Madox Ford’s great tetralogy which HBO broadcast earlier this year will want to investigate this 1964 version. It’s most notable for its Valentine Wannop: Judi Dench, in one of her first screen roles. (BBC Warner, $24.98)

MASAKI KOBAYASHI: AGAINST THE SYSTEM Kobayashi was the social critic as artist. This latest addition to Criterion’s Eclipse series includes four of his films, “The Thick-Walled Room,” “I Will Buy You,” “Black River,” and “The Inheritance.” (Criterion Collection, $59.95)

FRENCH MASTERWORKS: RUSSIAN EMIGRES IN PARIS 1923-1929 A fascinating footnote to film history. The five feature films included in the set are “The Burning Crucible” (which Jean Renoir said inspired him to become a filmmaker), “Kean,” “The Late Mathias Pascal,” “Gribiche,” and “The New Gentlemen.” (Flicker Alley, $59.95)

OUR DAILY BREAD King Vidor’s 1934 social-conscience classic, one of the few films to tackle the Great Depression head on, comes to Blu-ray. (Inception, $39.98)
