Posted Mon Jul 1, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1949 drama is bound for Blu-ray this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'A Letter to Three Wives' for Blu-ray on September 17.

As three women head off on a boating trip with a group of children, they receive a letter written by a woman claiming to have stolen one of their husbands. Which one? The letter doesn't say. Faced with the prospect of a shattered life, each woman soul searches throughout the day: Deborah Bishop (Jeanne Crain) feels inadequate amidst her husband's (Jeffrey Lynn) country club set. Everyone sees Lora Mae Hollingsway (Linda Darnell) as a gold digger, including her husband (Paul Douglas). And Rita Phipps (Ann Sothern) has a career that makes her husband (Kirk Douglas) feel neglected to the point of infidelity. All three endure the anguish of uncertainty until the boat trip ends - and the truth is revealed.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Commentary by Christopher Mankiewicz with Joseph L. Mankiewicz biographers Kenneth Geist and Cheryl Lower; "Linda Darnell: Hollywood's Fallen Angel" as seen on Biography; Movietone News Footage (Oscar Presentations); Restoration Comparison; and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
