Kino Prepping Blake Edwards' The Party for Blu-ray

Posted May 14, 2014 04:07 PM by Webmaster

Kino InternationalU.S. distributors Kino Lorber have revealed that they will add to their catalog director Blake Edwards' comedy The Party (1968), starring Peter Sellers, Claudine Longet, Natalia Borisova, Marge Champion, Jean Carson, and Steve Franken. The release, which will be part of the distributors' new Studio Classics line, is expected to arrive on the U.S. market later this year.

Synopsis: A failed, blundering actor (and one-man wrecking crew) is invited to a Hollywood mogul's lavish party.

I remember seeing this film years ago and found it hilarious. I'll pre-order it when it becomes available.

Great news... when Kino made the announcement the other day about What's New Pussycat, I was hoping they might do this one as well.

Kino seems to be on a roll. Was happy to hear 'Breakheart Pass' is coming out. BTW, is there a list of all such announcements they've made for 2014 releases?

Birdie f-ing num nums!! My girlfriend's dad recommended this to me 25 years ago and I remember not liking it that much until the birdie num num scene. That scene alone was one of the all time great comedy moments. I'm thinking now that I'm older and know the tone of the movie I will enjoy the picture more as a whole. Was just showing that scene on youtube to a friend, and was just itching for a blu-ray release so I could revisit the movie.

Ah.. great comedy. Love Marge Champion, Denny "Tarzan" Miller. Hopefully there will be some bonus features added and english SDH subtitles (even there aren't lot dialogues)

Argh, why can't MGM distribute this movie by itself !!??... Too busy with releasing a 53rd version of Rocky ?!!!
This is one of my most favorite movies, and so I want to be able to have my son see it with subtitles in French, and therefore have this movie released in Europe...

@zemat
MGM actually barely releases anything on its own. They don't produce anything independently anymore. The Bond films are bankrolled by Sony, they had to share the rights to The Hobbit with Warner/New Line and they shop their other properties to other studios for a remake (Red Dawn), reboot (Robocop) or sequels (Hot Tub Time Machine 2). Basically, the studio just exists to licence existing franchises, so they get out of the billions of dollars of debt they still owe to the banks.
Their home video titles have been handled by Fox. However, there may be catalog titles that Fox isn't interested in for a Blu-ray release, as they wouldn't break even with their distribution system, but are a better fit for smaller labels. So, either Fox declined their option on the titles, if they have first dibs on the entire catalog, or MGM has separate deals for part of their catalog with companies other than Fox (like Paramount has for the titles that are not part of the Warner deal).

Yes Yes YES!! Fantastic news. The cast and crew claim making this film was great fun and the vibes were very good. Peter Sellers was also well behaved; I think it shows. The Party is popular in Australia and India, so I hope this is a region free release; or it comes out on B and C zones; very soon!? 'I love you Alice B. Toklas' is another great Peter Sellers Film that should be on Blu-ray.

I love this movie and had the great pleasure of introducing my then-girlfriend-now-wife to it on DVD!

Unfortunately I'll probably have to pass on this one as I like my movies to have English subtitles... Being from Denmark, more or less half-deaf + most times watching movies after our son is put to bed, it really helps when there is optional subtitles. Had a look at random Kino releases and couldn't find any English-language movies with subtitles!

@Dwigt: you're right. And FOX is not interested to make any restoration of MGM titles like with SOME LIKE IT HOT or THE GREAT ESCAPE. Or even with the Bond movies. The Sean Connery Bond's have been restored. The Roger Moore's one not. THE SPY WHO LOVED ME did looks terrible compared with Connery's one.
I'm afraid to say that many of those MGM titles will not see the light onto BR in the near future. It looks also th WB has stopped to bring out those MGM titles.

@BHolst: dito, I'm also foreign speaking and hard hearing. So english subtitles helps and yes, I noticed it too that Kino doesnt have any subtitles. Also other small labels doesn't add subtitles like "Olive", "Shout Factory" etc. :-(
