U.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!
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.
