    HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN It’s one of the 20th century’s storied literary romances. Famous novelist (Clive Owen) and budding journalist (Nicole Kidman, below with Owen) fall in love during the Spanish Civil War. Both leads are good, and this 2012 HBO original movie earned 15 Emmy nominations (winning for music and sound editing). The Philip Kaufman-directed biopic feels surprisingly old-fashioned. Extras: making-of featurette, visual-effects featurette, audio commentary with Kaufman and editor Walter Murch. (HBO, $19.97; Blu-ray, $24.99)

    MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE PHASE ONE — AVENGERS ASSEMBLED Just in time for the May 3 release of “Iron Man 3” comes this 10-disc box set featuring six Marvel titles, including the first two Iron Man movies, “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Captain America,” “The Incredible Hulk,” and “Thor.” Extras: deleted and extended scenes from each film, as well as featurettes and a “mystery” disc. (Disney, Blu-ray, $219)

    HELLO, DOLLY! The Broadway hit musical came to the screen in 1969, with Barbra Streisand, Walter Matthau, a pre-“Phantom” Michael Crawford, Tommy Tune, and, best of all, Louis Armstrong, who duets on the title number with Streisand. Extras: featurette on director Gene Kelly. (20th Century Fox, Blu-ray, $24.99)


    THAT THING YOU DO! Tom Hanks’s winning debut as a director arrives in this sweet, funny, charming film from 1996. Dipping into pop-culture myth, it charts the fortunes of a garage band from Erie, Pa., in 1964. Tom Everett Scott shines in the young-Tom-Hanks role of a replacement drummer who bops the group onto the charts; Liv Tyler is their teen angel; and Hanks dryly underplays as a savvy record-label exec. Extras: extended cut, music video, cast reunion, making-of featurette. (20th Century Fox, Blu-ray, $19.99)

    PHILIP ROTH: UNMASKED The Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist turned 80 this month. To observe the occasion, PBS’s “American Masters” aired this 90-minute profile, which features an extended interview with Roth. Extras: outtakes from interviews, footage of Roth reading from “Portnoy’s Complaint” and “American Pastoral.” (PBS, $24.99)

    HITLER’S CHILDREN In this documentary from Israeli director Chanoch Ze’evi, we hear from Hermann Goering’s great-niece, Heinrich Himmler’s great-niece, the grandson of the commandant of Auschwitz, and other descendants of Nazi war criminals. They discuss the legacy of family guilt they feel. The subject is unusual and arresting. The film is talky and slack. Extras: filmmaker and participant biographies, trailer. (Film Movement, $24.95)
