North by Northwest 50th AE (UK BD) in November

Warner Home Video have announced the UK Blu-ray Disc release of North by Northwest (50th Anniversary Edition) on 16th November 2009. For this release Alfred Hitchcock's action packed espionage caper starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason has been newly remastered in 1080p from original VistaVision film elements.

The arrival of North by Northwest on Blu-ray is a landmark event in home video history, as it marks the very first of the famed director’s films to become available on this state-of-the-art format. Accordingly, the film has received a meticulous restoration and remastering especially for this occasion with Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging scanning the original VistaVision production elements in 8K resolution. The resulting presentation reveals a depth of field and clarity never before possible, only serving to heighten every thrill-packed moment of this beloved classic.

There is no DVD release on the schedule for the UK market.
