A bounty of Bogie coming on Blu-ray

Fans of Humphrey Bogart have some nice things to look forward to. Three classi…no, legendary films are getting cleaned up and being released on DVD/Blu-ray.

On March 23rd, Paramount will be releasing THE AFRICAN QUEEN on Blu-ray.

‘The African Queen’ will be available as a single disc Blu-ray and also in a Commemorative Limited Edition Blu-ray box set.

Special features:
*Embracing Chaos: Making The African Queen–This comprehensive documentary takes a look back at the production with commentary about the cast, the challenges of the filming locations and how the spectacular cinematography impacted the industry overall. Includes on-camera interviews with notable Hollywood icons, critics and crew members from the film including Martin Scorsese, Tony Huston, Richard Schickel and more, plus never-before-seen archival images and home movie footage provided by the estate of cinematographer Jack Cardiff.

The Commemorative, Limited-Edition Blu-ray box set includes the above along with:

*An audio disc with a recording of the Lux Radio Theater presents The African Queen radio broadcast
*A Senitype film frame collectible reproduction
*Collectible postcards featuring reproductions of images related to the film
*A reproduction of Katharine Hepburn’s out-of-print memoir The Making of The African Queen or How I Went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind

I will have this as soon as pos. Note to Scott: Set aside a copy for me right now!

Ok, so you will have that to savor for several months, then Warner to help out with our Bogie cravings on October 5th with THE MALTESE FALCON and TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.

So we get funny Bogie, bad-ass Bogie and crazy Bogie.
