WHV Bows Cary Grant Classics in Centennial Celebration1 Mar, 2004 By: Hive News
Warner Home Video DVD debuts five titles starring screen legend Cary Grant June 1 (prebook May 4). The studio will celebrate Grant's centennial with the DVD debuts of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, My Favorite Wife, Destination Tokyo and Night and Day. Each DVD is $19.97. Cary Grant: The Signature Collection, which will include all of the titles, will be available at $49.92.
The discs play to purists, with the original aspect ratios preserved. Each also features theatrical trailers, and short subjects or cartoons that incorporate or parody some of the movie content. In addition to print and online marketing, Grant will be featured as the star of the month on Turner Classic Movies in June. The network will also debut a new documentary on Grant, whose career spanned 76 films.
