'On the Riviera' Blu-ray Announced and Features Added

Posted Thu Sep 19, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Walter Lang's Academy Award-nominated 1951 musical is bound for Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be bringing 'On the Riviera' to Blu-ray on October 8.

You'll double over with laughter at Danny Kaye's Golden Globe- winning dual performances in this classic musical farce that was nominated for two Oscars Awards. Faced with a scheduling conflict, a womanizing French financier-aviator (Kaye) hires a nightclub performer (also Kaye) to temporarily impersonate him. But things go hilariously awry as one man tries to romance two beautiful women (Gene Tierney and Corinne Calvet) - who both think he's their lover.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: The Riviera Story: A Remarkable Impersonation; A Portrait of Danny Kaye; The Jack of Clubs: Choreographer Jack Cole; and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray set is $24.99.
