The 1982 musical starring Julie Andrews, Robert Preston, and James Garner arrives on Blu-ray next month.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive has revealed that 'Victor Victoria' will hit Blu-ray on June 14.
A man impersonating a woman on stage? Piece of cake. But a woman whose livelihood depends on pretending to be a man who pretends to be a woman? Now you've got problems! You've also got laughs when Julie Andrews plays Victor and Victoria in this clever delight from filmmaker Blake Edwards boasting a marvelous Academy Award-winning score by Henry Mancini and Leslie Bricusse.
Robert Preston plays a cabaret performer who devises the gender-bender stage act. Farcically complicating matters are James Garner as a mobster suspecting Victor is a Victoria and Lesley Ann Warren as a short-fused floozy. Of this movie's seven Oscar nominations, three went to Golden Globe winner Andrews (Actress), National Board of Review Award winner Preston (Supporting Actor) and Warren (Supporting Actress).
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary by Blake Edwards and Julie Andrews; Easter Egg; and Original Theatrical Trailer.
