Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes Blu-ray

Posted March 15, 2013 06:50 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryThe Warner Archive Collection (WAC), the Warner Bros. Digital Distribution division dedicated to releasing previously unavailable films and television shows, will bring to Blu-ray Hugh Hudson's Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), starring Christopher Lambert, Andie MacDowell, and Ralph Richardson. Street date is April 9th.

Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included with this upcoming release are yet to be revealed.

An infant raised to manhood among savage apes, living by his wits and the law of the jungle, returns to society to claim his inheritance of humanity and privilege. This collision of "wild" and civilized worlds is the extraordinary saga of Tarzan, chronicled in Edgar Rice Burroughs' popular book series.

Hugh Hudson (Chariots of Fire, I Dreamed of Africa) directed his lavish adaptation highlighting the character's dual nature as a master of the African jungle and as John Clayton, seventh Earl of Greystoke, heir to one of Scotland's great estates.

I hope they carry over the few features on the DVD. If so I might buy it.

Highly interested, but where did Fearless go? And why aren't they sticking with the "at least 1/2 BR releases a month" model?

Great news! Definitely the best Tarzan movie. Lambert is best when he has a very limited amount of lines. Very good cinematogrophy in this movie.

I used to love this movie. Even with Glenn Close's voice coming out of Andi MacDowell's mouth.

John Alcott's cinematography should look fantastic in 1080p. Edited by Anne Coates of "Lawrence of Arabia" fame.

Thank God this is a Warner's and not a Sony/TwilightTime/SAE, 3000 Copy Limited Edition. It would sell-out faster than Christine!

Already own this on DVD. Was fully expecting this to be a regular release, not through the Archive Collection. Catwoman should've been through the Blu-ray Archive Collection through WB and also The NeverEnding Story.
Speaking of which, it'd be better if WB actually put the effort in releasing a 2-Disc Ultimate Edition for The NeverEnding Story. Two discs for each cut fully restored and remastered, both BD50's. They won't care.

I saw this in the theaters as a kid and it was a very powerful film going experience. Huge stretches without dialogue. Constant tragedy. Amazing creature effects that as a kid convinced me they were all real gorillas. Several stranger in a strange land story lines. An underrated film with excellent performances, especially Ian Holm and Lambert.

I think it's hilarious that in a movie featuring Christopher Lambert Andie MacDowell's is the voice they chose to dub.

Waiting on the review. I loved this movie when I was a kid (watching on beta) but I haven't seen it in so long I'm afraid my expectations are too high. If it is half what I remember I am in for a treat.
