Criterion will literally stick four more feathers in its Blu-ray cap in early October.

In an early announcement to retailers, the Criterion Collection will bring 'The Four Feathers (1939)' to Blu-ray on October 11.

This spectacular Technicolor epic, directed by Zoltán Korda, is considered the finest of the many adaptations of A.E.W. Mason’s classic 1902 adventure novel about the British Empire’s exploits in Africa, and a crowning achievement of Alexander Korda’s legendary production company, London Films.

The Blu-ray will feature a new 1080p digital transfer, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary by film historian Charles Drazin; New video interview with David Korda, son of director Zoltán Korda; A Day at Denham: A short film from 1939 featuring footage of Zoltán Korda on the set of The Four Feathers; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Michael Sragow.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
