Kino Lorber (film and video distributor) have confirmed that they are preparing a Blu-ray release of Clambake
along with director Frederick De Cordova's film Frankie and Johnny
(1966), starring Elvis Presley, Donna Douglas, and Harry Morgan. The release is expected to arrive on the market later this year.
Following the very popular limited edition release on Blu-ray of Follow That Dream
, 'Twilight Time' will release 'Flaming Star
' in November again as a Region Free disc with only 3000 copies available.
The 'Follow That Dream
has been released and our order is now on the way to us
. This is a limited edition of 3000 copies. This release includes an 8 page booklet that speaks to the film's place in 'cinema literacy' and Joe Esposito will be doing a Feature Commentary with Film Historian, Nick Redman.
Warner Brothers Senior Vice-President of Catalog Marketing George Feltenstein has provided more details on the 12 outtakes included as special features on the 'Elvis: That's The Way It Is : Two Disc Special Edition
due out on August 12. As suspected, the content mirrors that of the 2007 2-DVD set, except with a new twist. On DVD, the outtakes were presented in abysmal quality, but on Blu-ray, they will be pristine.
'The Blu-ray has high-definition, incredible new presentation
, [and an] all-new master, but we also have, with really impressive quality
, additional songs that were not included in the Special Edition. They were on a prior DVD but ... we were unable to locate the actual master tapes that had the outtakes, and, finally, now, that tape was located
, and that is now on the Blu-ray.
