'The Great Gatsby' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Feb 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

Jack Clayton's 1974 take on the classic tale starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow is planned for Blu-ray this April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers says 'The Great Gatsby' is getting a Blu-ray release on April 23.

The '20s never roared louder than in the sumptuously romantic retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. Redford stars as Jay Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Farrow), then lost her to a rich boy. But now Gatsby is mysteriously wealthy and ready to risk everything to woo Daisy back. A winner of two Academy Awards (Best Costume Design and Best Music), The Great Gatsby features a script by Francis Ford Coppola. And at its center is the opulent evocation of an era of hot jazz and cold champagne, of women as exotic and demanding as hothouse flowers, and of lives made soft by too much, too soon.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
