Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Paradine Case' Blu-ray Dated & Supplements Detailed

Posted Tue Mar 21, 2017 at 07:51 AM PDT by

The 1947 crime thriller starring Gregory Peck, Ann Todd, and Charles Laughton is coming to Blu-ray in May.

As previously reported, Kino is working on 'The Paradine Case' for Blu-ray later this year, and now the date has been set for May 30.

There have been many courtroom dramas over the years, but none quite like The Paradine Case. The masterful collaboration of producer David O. Selznick and director Alfred Hitchcock brings tension to an all-time high in this powerful and dramatic film.

The lovely Mrs. Paradine (Ann Todd) is accused of poisoning her older, blind husband. She hires lawyer Anthony Keane (Gregory Peck) to represent her. Though Keane is married to a striking and devoted woman, he finds himself strangely attracted to his glamorous defendant. His deepening feelings convince him of her innocence, even though the evidence and his sense of reason may indicate otherwise.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Audio commentary with Hitchcock authors Stephen Rebello & Bill Krohn; Hitchcock/Truffaut - Icon interviews Icon (Audio); 1949 radio play starring Joseph Cotton, Alida Valli & Louis Jourdan; Peter Bogdanovich interviews Hitchcock (Audio); Restoration comparison; Reversible Blu-ray Art; and Original Theatrical Trailer.
