'Rapture' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Mon Nov 21, 2011 at 06:00 AM PST by

Guillermin's spellbinding 1965 black-and-white drama is coming to Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Twilight Time set 'Rapture' for Blu-ray on December 13.

'Rapture' (1965) is a dark fairy tale: set against the rugged beauty of the Brittany seacoast, it tells the story of a young girl (Patricia Gozzi) whose lonely isolation under the watchful eye of her stern and bitter father (Melvyn Douglas) is abruptly shattered by the arrival of a seductive fugitive from the law (Dean Stockwell). With stunning CinemaScope images from director John Guillermin and cinematographer Marcel Grignon, this tumultuous coming-of-age fable also features a deliriously romantic score by Georges Delerue, available here as an isolated track.

The region-free Blu-ray is limited to 3000 copies and features 1080p video, mono soundtrack, and supplements include an isolated score track and extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes.

The Blu-ray is only available here from Screen Archives Entertainment for $29.95.
