DVD Info: Casablanca:Ultimate Collector’s Edition to be released on December 2nd.

And the nifty Christmas gifts just keep coming.

Warner Home Entertainment has announced Casablanca: Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be released on December 2nd.

This set will contain the previously released Casablanca: Special edition as well as some nifty new stuff:
*Jack L. Warner: The Last Mogul, a 1993 documentary covering the life of the legendary studio head.
*A branded passport holder
*Luggage tag
*photo book
*Memo from Hal Wallis that “Casablanca” is the new title
*Memo from Wallis to Jack Warner strongly urging casting of Bogart over George Raft
*Letter from Publicity head Charles Einfeld to publicist Marty Weiser to “sell” Bogart as a romantic lead
*Victor Laszlo’s “letter of transit.”
*A mail in offer for a movie poster (You mean everybody doesn’t already have one? Does this mean I am a total film geek?)

The packaging is pretty nice, with a Morrocan motif.

Retail is $59.98. There will also be a Blu-ray release, but I don’t have the price on that.
