Two classic versions of the same story will be bundled together on Blu-ray this April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios will be releasing 'Imitation of Life: 2-Movie Collection' on Blu-ray on April 7.
Based on the 1933 best-selling novel, 'Imitation of Life' is one of the most beloved and respected stories of all-time. This emotionally charged drama chronicles the lives of two widows and their troubled daughters as they struggle to find true happiness in a world plagued by racism. The Imitation of Life 2-Movie Collection includes both versions of the film, the original 1934 Best Picture nominee starring Claudette Colbert and the 1959 masterpiece starring Lana Turner. With storylines tackling racism, romance, family, success and tragedy, Imitation of Life is a powerful story that still resonates with audiences today.
