Great news! The hoped for partnership between Universal Studios and TCM has been officially announced.

 

Turner Classic Movies & Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Team Up to Offer Made-to-Order DVDs of Rare Films

 

Digitally Remastered Titles Never Available Before on DVD to Include Extensive Features from TCM Archives

 

New Titles Available Each Quarter, Including Five Memorable Horror Titles,

Three Early Cary Grant Vehicles and a Timeless Holiday Classic

 

TCM to Present Special Telecasts of the Films

 

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Universal Studios Home Entertainment (USHE) have entered into an extensive new partnership to offer classic movie fans rare vintage films, all digitally remastered, on DVD on a made-to-order basis. The TCM Vault Collection Presented by Universal marks USHE?s first foray into the manufactured-on-demand (MOD) arena. TCM began offering MOD featuring lost titles from the RKO library.

 

TCM and USHE are working to remaster a number of great titles never before available on DVD, with several never available on home video at all. The first titles made available include five chilling horror films, three early Cary Grant pictures and the unsung 1940 holiday classic Rememberthe Night, starring Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray and scripted by the great Preston Sturges. The films will be made available by request on DVD via TCM.com for the first time during the fourth quarter of 2009. TCM host Robert Osborne will provide introductions for selected titles, which will also include supplemental materials compiled by TCM and extensive material from the TCM archives. In addition, TCM will present exclusive premieres of the movies over the next six months.

 

?Many terrific films have been unavailable on home video for far too long, especially the holiday classic Remember the Night,? Osborne said. ?It?s wonderful that today?s movie fans will be able to enjoy these rare movies. TCM and Universal have worked hard to restore them digitally and provide historical context, bonus content and behind-the-scenes information, something DVD collectors are sure to appreicate. I?m proud to be part of this great project with TCM and Universal.?

 

For Universal, the agreement is a great way to reach avid film fans. ?Universal is very proud of its prestigious collection of Hollywood screen gems,? said Craig Kornblau, president, Universal Studios Home Entertainment. ?Like us, TCM is deeply dedicated to honoring Hollywood?s golden age. This collaboration presents the perfect opportunity to share Universal?s rich cinematic legacy and celebrate vintage works with classic film fans.?
