The 1940 holiday classic has been fully remastered and restored from the original 35mm film and will be released on Blu-ray in November.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal and Turner Classic Movies will be releasing 'Remember the Night' on Blu-ray on November 3 as a Turner Classic Movies exclusive.
Legendary screen duo Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray star in this heartwarming holiday classic, which is more popular than ever as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. Stanwyck is a petty shoplifter caught stealing a bracelet and MacMurray is the Assistant District Attorney who gets her sent off to jail just before the holidays, then suffers a crisis of conscience and bails her out. When he invites her to join him and his family for Christmas, it begins a relationship that strains—but ultimately redeems—all parties. Featuring a wonderful supporting cast (Beulah Bondi, Sterling Holloway and Elizabeth Patterson), stylish costumes by Edith Head, a hilarious yet poignant script by Preston Sturges and superb direction by Mitchell Leisen, this is a timeless holiday favorite that can be enjoyed in any season.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless mono soundtrack, and supplements will include: Introduction by Robert Osborne, Publicity Stills, Scene Stills, Behind-the-Scenes Photos, Movie Posters, Trivia, Original trailer, Production Overview, Biographies of writer Preston Sturges & director Mitchell Leisen, and TCM Archival Interviews.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
