Robert Aldrich's 1955 adaptation of the Mickey Spillane novel is in the works for Blu-ray in June.
The Criterion Collection has just revealed 'Kiss Me Deadly' for a Blu-ray release on June 21.
Brazen and bleak, 'Kiss Me Deadly' is a film noir masterpiece as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary by film noir specialists Alain Silver and James Ursini; Theatrical trailer; New video tribute from director Alex Cox (Repo Man, Walker); Excerpts from The Long Haul of A. I. Bezzerides, a 2005 documentary on the Kiss Me Deadly screenwriter; Excerpts from Mike Hammer’s Mickey Spillane, a 1998 documentary on the author whose book inspired the film; A look at the film’s locations; Alternate ending; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic J. Hoberman and a 1955 reprint by director Robert Aldrich.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
