David Kalat founded All Day Entertainment as an independent DVD label in 1997. 


The company was created to rescue and promote motion pictures whose artistic value, historic importance, and all-around entertainment value merit a second-chance in the commercial marketplace.  

David Kalat also partners with other media companies such as Masters of Cinema, Kino-Lorber, the Criterion Collection, Classic Media, and others to bring the same attention to important films from around the world.

If Dr. Mabuse is out of his mind... whose mind is he in?



I did not write this book.  My mother did, a long time ago.  She died in 1997 and twenty years later I published her debut, posthumous novel about a murder mystery unfolding on the sex-segregated campus of (thinly veiled) Duke University in 1965.

All Day Entertainment is an independent DVD label dedicated to motion pictures of artistic merit and entertainment value that have been overlooked by the Hollywood mainstream. 

From classic to foreign to independent to cult films, All Day is committed to giving the red carpet treatment to movies that fell through the cracks. 


Many of these films have never been available on home video before. Some have never been released in the United States in any way at all. All are presented here in exclusive DVD editions, lovingly mastered from the highest quality sources available, with unique supplemental bonus features.


For the unloved and the obscure, the lost and forgotten, All Day Entertainment is dedicated to the very best movies you’ve never heard of. Every one of these discs is a treasure, and I personally recommend them all.
