Bad Girls of Film Noir (R1) in February
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Bad Girls of Film Noir Volume 1 and Volume 2 on 9th February 2010. In the ‘40s and ‘50s, the juiciest roles for actresses in Hollywood were often in B-pictures that explored the dark side of life and offered them starring roles as cool, calculating gals who could stick a knife in a man’s back and make him like it.
On February 9 Sony opens the doors to the Columbia vault to release two newly restored and remastered collections of classic films. Volume 1 showcases some of the best femme fatales of the period – Gloria Grahame, Evelyn Keyes, and Lizabeth Scott – displaying plenty of their best bad-girl behaviour in The Killer That Stalked New York, Two of a Kind, Bad for Each Other, and The Glass Wall. Bonus materials include an all-new interview with Two of a Kind co-star Terry Moore, the vintage television episode “The Payoff” with Janet Blair and Howard Duff, and original theatrical trailers.
Volume 2 highlights more classic noir gals (Ida Lupino, Jan Sterling, Audrey Totter, Janis Carter, and B-movie Bombshell Cleo Moore in a triple-bill) in four films: One Girl’s Confession, Women’s Prison, Night Editor, and Over-Exposed. Bonus Materials include the original theatrical trailers and the vintage television episode “Remember to Live” with Cleo Moore and Dane Clark.
Each two-disc volume will be available separately for $24.96 SRP.
The films are presented in their original aspect ratios with English Mono audio. Subtitles are available in English and English SDH.
