The 1950 romantic comedy starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor is bound for Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive is preparing to bring 'Father of the Bride (1950)' on Blu-ray on May 10.
"I would like to say a few words about weddings," a weary man says from the middle of a muddle of rice and scattered bottles. What follows is a warm, witty look at what it means to be Father of The Bride.
Spencer Tracy is the father and Elizabeth Taylor is the bride in this lively Vincente Minnelli-directed classic. Taylor is glowingly showcased - and reflected in three mirrors when first seen in a wedding gown. Tracy's performance captures every loving father's exasperations and joys as the day approaches. It also captured the fourth of his nine Best Actor Academy AwardÂ® nominations. The film also earned nominations for Best Picture and Screenplay. Here comes the bride, there goes dad's wallet...and everyone's heart. What sparkling fun!
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements include: Two Newsreels: "Wedding Bells for Movie Star Elizabeth Taylor" and "President Truman Meets Father of the Bride" and Theatrical Trailer.
