Paramount have announced the R1 release of one of the finest films of the seventies, Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation. This is a title I've been eagerly awaiting, and it looks like it will be a winner. The disc will feature two commentaries, one by the great man himself and the other by the ace editor and sound guru Walter Murch, who has presumably been involved in the new Dolby Digital 5.1 mix which will be on the disc. No word on whether the original mono mix will also be included - a shame if not, as it is one of the greatest sound achievements in film history. We also get a featurette, "Close Up On The Conversation". The picture will be anamorphic widescreen.
The disc is released on the 12th December with a suggested retail price of $29.95.
