Another Buster Keaton classic is gearing up for Blu-ray release in December.
In an early announcement to retailers, Kino Video has slated 'Seven Chances: Ultimate Edition' for Blu-ray on December 13.
Love has never been funnier or more difficult to manage than in the immortal Keaton comedies. 'Seven Chances' is a film often imitated but never rivaled for hilarity and visual virtuosity. Keaton stars as Jimmie Shannon, a romantically jinxed young man who must marry by 7:00 PM to inherit seven million dollars. In one of the most rousing, brilliantly choreographed sequences in Keaton's career, Shannon flees a horde of would be brides while dodging the hostile forces of nature that seem to be conspiring against him (in the form of a colossal rockslide) during his manic dash to the altar. This new HD transfer has been mastered from an original 35mm nitrate print from the Library of Congress.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
