Both catalog titles will be available on Blu-ray through Warner Archive later this year.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive is working on 'Hit the Deck' for Blu-ray later this year.
Anchors Aweigh. On the Town. Hit the Deck. Hollywood has always known what to do with sailors on leave: give 'em some pretty girls and some great songs and watch the fans line up to enlist. Hit the Deck hits all the right notes as three sailors (Tony Martin, Vic Damone, Russ Tamblyn) and three cuties (Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Ann Miller) flirt, squabble, run afoul of shore patrol and of course, fall in love to a hit parade of Vincent Youmans tunes. Highlights include Miller's polishing the floor as The Lady from the Bayou, Martin's romantic mastery of More Than You Know and the stage-filling rouser Hallelujah. Music, romance, fun: don't miss the boat!
Warner Archive is also preparing 'The Wind and the Lion' for Blu-ray.
Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Sean Connery (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Finding Forrester) and Academy Award-nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Candice Bergen (TV's Boston Legal, The In-Laws) star in this Middle East romantic adventure about a Moroccan chief who triggers an international incident when he kidnaps an American widow and her children. Loosely based on a true event, the film co-stars John Huston (Chinatown) and Brian Keith (Young Guns, Hooper).
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for each release is $21.99.
