Tags: Disc Announcements, Criterion (all tags)
Another Charlie Chaplin classic is getting the Blu-ray treatment in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion will release 'Monsieur Verdoux' on Blu-ray on March 26.
Charlie Chaplin plays shockingly against type in his most controversial film, a brilliant and bleak black comedy about money, marriage, and murder.
The Blu-ray will feature a new 2K restoration, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Chaplin Today: "Monsieur Verdoux," a 2003 program on the film's production and release, featuring filmmaker Claude Chabrol and actor Norman Lloyd; Charlie Chaplin and the American Press, a new documentary featuring Chaplin specialist Kate Guyonvarch and author Charles Maland; New video essay featuring an audio interview with actress Marilyn Nash; Radio advertisements and trailers; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky and reprinted pieces by Chaplin and critic André Bazin.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
