The 1965 Blake Edwards comedy will race to Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive is preparing 'The Great Race' for Blu-ray on September 9.
Blake Edwards turns a marvelous cast loose on a round-the-world highway booby-trapped by some of the funniest screen gags ever. Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk are nasty Professor Fate and his dim henchman Max. Tony Curtis is their good-guy nemesis, the Great Leslie. And Natalie Wood is cheroot-puffing suffragette reporter Maggie DuBois. Zestily scored by Henry Mancini and ravishing in a new digital transfer with revitalized digital audio from restored elements, The Great Race is great fun!
Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include: Original Road Show Version with Overture, Intermission, Entr'acte, and Exit music, Behind the Scenes with Blake Edwards' "The Great Race"; and Theatrical Trailer.
The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
