Stars and Stripes Forever (US) in December

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Combo release of Stars and Stripes Forever on 13th December 2011. This musical is a biography of composer John Philip Sousa. Clifton Webb stars as Sgt. Major John Philip Sousa, who while the leader of the Marine Corps Band in 1890’s, meets Private Willie Little (Robert Wagner), inventor of an instrument he calls the Sousaphone...and Little's girlfriend, shapely showgirl Lily (Debra Paget). The film follows Sousa after he leaves the Marines and forms his own band accompanied by Willie and Lily. Though he'd rather write ballads, Sousa's marches bring him increasing fame and from their debut in 1892 the band is a great success. But Sousa's 'no wives' rule threatens the romance of Willie and does the Spanish-American War.

The film is presented in 1080P 1.37:1 (Full Frame) with English Mono DTS-HD MA, Spanish Mono and English SDH, French and Spanish subtitles. Extras are TBC but as you can see it comes in special book packaging...
