'Pal Joey (1957)' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Jan 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

The 1957 musical will be crooning on a limited edition Blu-ray this February.

In a recent press release, Twilight Time has set 'Pal Joey' for Blu-ray on February 14.

Frank Sinatra stars as John O’Hara’s caddish crooner in this 1957 film version of the O’Hara/Rodgers and Hart musical, 'Pal Joey.' A fresh—very fresh—arrival on the San Francisco nightclub scene, the amoral and ambitious Joey soon finds himself entangled with two “mice”: the rapacious stripper-turned-society dame Vera (Rita Hayworth) and the good-girl chorine Linda (Kim Novak). Handsomely directed by George Sidney, the film features a double handful of Rodgers and Hart’s greatest tunes, including “Zip,” “My Funny Valentine,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” and “I Could Write a Book.”

The Blu-ray is limited to 3000 copies and will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Isolated score track, Backstage and at Home with Kim Novak featurette, original theatrical trailer, and liner notes by Julie Kirgo.

'Pal Joey' is available here from Screen Archives Entertainment for $34.95.
