Kino Lorber: Richard Lester's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum Coming to Blu-ray

Posted June 9, 2014 05:22 PM by Webmaster

Kino InternationalU.S. distributors Kino Lorber have confirmed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Richard Lester's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966), starring Zero Mostel, Phil Silvers, Buster Keaton, Michael Crawford, Alfie Bass, Roy Kinnear, Michael Hordern, and Jack Gilford. The release is scheduled to arrive on the U.S. market in September.

Synopsis: When a wily, witty, lazy, cheating slave discovers that his master's son is in love with the girl-next-door - a virgin courtesan - he promises to help win her heart in exchange for his freedom. But the road to romance is blocked with stunning surprises, cunning disguises - and the wildest chariot race ever!

A very funny film and, I believe, the last appearance of Buster Keaton.

Fun comedy with a great cast (Zero Mostel, Buster Keaton, Phil Silvers, Michael Crawford) and music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

I hope they release The Vikings 1958 Kirk Douglas. Solomon and Sheba 1959 would be nice also. United Artists released some great films in the 50's and 60's !!! I will keep my fingers crossed Kino.

Would it be to much to ask from Kino to release Lester's The Bed-Sitting Room and Blake Edwards' What Did You Do In The War, Daddy? Both are United Artists titles owned by MGM and TBSR already exists as an HD master.
