The 1960 French crime thriller will assume Blu-ray's identity this December.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion will release 'Purple Noon' on Blu-ray on December 4.
This ripe, colorful adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s vicious novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by the versatile René Clément, stars Alain Delon as Tom Ripley, a duplicitous American charmer in Rome.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: New video interview with René Clément scholar Denitza Bantcheva; Archival interviews with actor Alain Delon and novelist Patricia Highsmith, on whose book The Talented Mr. Ripley the film was based; Original English-language trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Geoffrey O'Brien and a reprinted interview with Clément.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
