After milking last years 65th anniversary of The Pride of the Yankees last year by producing a re-issue of a 5 year old DVD MGM looks like they're getting it right this time. Check out this blurb from ClassicFlix:

 

*************

 

One of last years worst "Anniversary" marketing gimmicks was MGM's attempt to capitalize on the 65th anniversary of The Pride of of the Yankees (1942). Released in April, it simply changed the cover art from the 2002 release, but left the disc contents and disc art the same with NO BONUS FEATURES!

 

**MGM** has now made up for that by announcing the March 18th release date for The Pride of the Yankees - Collector's Edition. With a plethora of bonus features (below), this DVD edition will certainly be the one to have. It will retail for $14.98, but is available at Classicflix.com for only $10.99. However, until this Monday, January 21st, we'll have it for the SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICE of $7.98.

 

NOTE: The cover art circulating at different sites is merely last years "65th" edition. Cover art for this edition is yet to be released.

 

BONUS FEATURES:

 

* The Making of Pride Of The Yankees featurette

* The Man Behind The Iron Horse featurette ? Discusses the real Lou Gehrig

* What He Left Behind featurette ? A look at the Lou Gehrig memorabilia currently housed at the Baseball Hall of Fame

* Always featurette ? A look at the hit song that came from the film

* Lou Gehrig?s Disease: The Search For A Cure featurette - An interview with baseball? great Curt Schilling discussing Lou Gehrig?s Disease and the latest developments in fighting it

* Curt Schilling: A Legend on a Legend ? Baseball star Curt Schilling discusses Lou Gehrig

I bought the anniversary edition last year. Don't know whether I will double dip and replace my copy. Most of the extras are about Lou Gehrig and this doesn't seem enough to entice me to buy the new version. Very odd. You think all these extras would have been in the anniversary edition. How many times do companies expect you to double dip.

Just posted at ClassicFlix:

 

**20th Century Fox** has announced an April 22nd release date for Shirley Temple - America's Sweetheart Collection, Vol. 6. The set will include two new to DVD titles, Stowaway (1936) and Young People (1940) as well as Wee Willie Winkie (1937) which was just released last month in the Ford at Fox set.

 

As with previous Shirley Temple sets, bonus features are slim (a Wee Willie Winkie Restoration Comparison). And while previous releases included both the original black and white as well as a colorized version, it appears they've only colorized Wee Willie Winkie in this set. Among the stars are Shirley Temple, Alice Faye, Robert Young, Victor McLaglen, Cesar Romero, Jack Oakie, Eugene Pallette & Arthur Treacher. The 3 DVD set will be sold as a complete set or as singles. Singles are available at Classicflix.com for only $10.99 while the set is available for $23.99. However, for 3 days only (until January 27th), we'll have it for the SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICE of $19.99.

Some artwork has been posted at ClassicFlix for the upcoming The Bette Davis Centenary Celebration and Shirley Temple Collections (just singles). The Shirley Temple singles are blah, but the Bette Davis singles look great!!! Neither boxed set artwork has been updated.

The artwork for the Davis collection is quite an improvement over the prior releases. Cover art for ALL ABOUT EVE, HUSH HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE, and THE VIRGIN QUEEN are quite beautiful. Looks like EVE will have some additional extras not in the current release! Hopefully the cover art will be posted here as well. This is another box set I will be adding to my collection.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen Comes Back to DVD and Blu-Ray on April 8th 2008!

 

One of Terry Gilliam's earlier films is getting released in a new edition and new format.

 

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen will be re-released on DVD and Blu-Ray on April 8. These new releases are to honor the film's 20th anniversary. The standard disc will be priced at $19.94 and the Blu-Ray disc will cost $28.95. The film stars John Neville, Eric Idle and features early performances from Sarah Polley and Uma Thurman.

 

Director Terry Gilliam adroitly applies his Monty Python sensibilities upon the "career" of famed German prevaricator Baron von Munchausen. Played herein by John Neville, the baron is seen quelling a war that he himself started, flying into the stratosphere on the back of a cannonball, ballooning to the moon, exploring the innards of a volcano, being swallowed by a whale....In short, all of Munchausen's fabulous lies are here presented as "truth," played out in full view of nonplussed witnesses Eric Idle, Charles McKeown, Jack Purvis, and Sarah Polley. Fringe benefits include several loving medium shots of jaybird-naked Uma Thurman as Boticelli's Venus and an extended unbilled cameo by Robin Williams -- that is, by the head of Robin Williams -- as the King of the Moon. Filmed under considerable duress on a budget eventually exceeding 45 million dollars, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen never quite caught on with moviegoers, though it has enjoyed a lucrative afterlife on videocassette.

 

Special Features

- Audio commentary with director Terry Gilliam and co-writer/actor Chris McKeown

- Three-part The Madness and Misadventures of Munchausen documentary

- Storyboard sequences (with all-new vocal performances by Terry Gilliam and Chris McKeown)

- Deleted scenes

- Marvelous World of Munchausen enhanced graphics and trivia track (Blu-Ray only)
