Fox Bowing Nine Classic Movies for the First Time on Blu-ray Following Fan Vote
The votes are in, and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the winners of its “Voice Your Choice” campaign, which let consumers vote for which films from the 1930s through the 1960s they’d like to see restored for Blu-ray Disc release.
According to Fox, more than 42,000 people cast 80,000 votes, prompting Fox to release both the winner and runner-up from each decade, as well as a write-in selection.
The write-in is 1933 Best Picture Oscar winner Cavalcade, which will be released on Blu-ray Aug. 6.
The top two picks from each decade will be released Dec. 3: From the 1930s, Jesse James (1939) with Tyrone Power as the infamous bandit and co-starring Henry Fonda; The Call of the Wild (1935) with Clark Gable and Loretta Young; from the 1940s, magical love story The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison, and the pirate yarn Black Swan (1942); from the 1950s, musical Carmen Jones (1954), with Oscar nominee Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte, and the Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn starrer Desk Set (1957); and from the 1960s, John Wayne’s North to Alaska (1960) and Civil War drama The Undefeated (1969), with Wayne and Rock Hudson.
