Robert Altman's 1982 classic makes its Blu-ray debut in November. Pre-orders are now available.
In an early announcement to retailers, Olive is working on 'Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean' for Blu-ray on November 18.
After directing a celebrated New York stage production of Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, legendary filmmaker Robert Altman (Nashville, The Player) gave the play the full cinematic treatment. Actresses Sandy Dennis, Golden Globe-nominee Cher, Karen Black, and Kathy Bates all reprised their stage roles, and the results are a magical convergence of theatre and film.
A group of James Dean devotees reconvene at their teenage hangout, a rural Texas drugstore, twenty years after the death of their beloved idol. But much has changed in the intervening years, and the reunion provides them one final opportunity to expose the secrets and heal the emotional wounds that have lingered among them for two decades.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include an exclusive videotaped interview with playwright and screenwriter Ed Graczyk, who recalls the evolution of the play and its turbulent journey from stage to screen.
