Driving Miss Daisy and Mrs. Miniver Heading to Blu-ray

Posted September 17, 2012 11:32 PM by Webmaster

Warner Bros.Warner Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray two Oscar winning films: William Wyler's Mrs. Miniver (1942), starring Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon and Teresa Wright, and Bruce Beresford's Driving Miss Daisy (1989), starring Morgan Freeman, Jessica Tandy and Dan Aykroyd.

Both releases will be available for purchase on January 8th.

Mrs. Miniver

Winner of six Academy Awards including Best Picture, this memorable spirit-lifter about an idealized England that tends to its prize-winning roses while confronting the terror of war struck a patriotic chord with audiences and became 1942's #1 box-office hit. Greer Garson gives a formidable Oscar-winning title-role performance, comforting children in a bomb shelter, capturing an enemy parachutist and delivering an inspirational portrait of stiff-upper lip British resolve. When Hitler did his worst, Mrs. Miniver did her best.

Driving Miss Daisy

Alfred Uhry's moving Pulitzer Prize-winning play became 1989's Academy Award-winning Best Picture. Driving Miss Daisy tells of genteel but strong-willed Atlanta matron Daisy (Best Actress Oscar-winner Jessica Tandy) and her patient but equally determined chauffeur Hoke (Morgan Freeman). For two so different, they have a lot in common. And the bumpy road they travel leads to the friendship of a lifetime. From the film's nine Oscar nominations, it drove off with two more awards: Best Adaptation Screenplay (Uhry) and Makeup.

Mrs. Miniver will be January 8th.

I've also created a thread in the forum that Grand Hotel is coming out the same day.

Mrs. Miniver is a great movie. Driving Miss Daisy is also tops in the ever-important and enlightening subservient negro genre.

Now that's what I am talking about when it comes to old school art work for movies from the 80's and 90's the almost life photographed art from the film posters and vhs box cover that I used to oh-so enjoy looking at when I was but a boy, I wish more of the movies from that era were released on blu-ray with that kind of art work, the nostalgia would be so much better.

@ repete
If by "subservient" you mean they work for someone, well I guess we're all "subservient" to someone then, at least those of us who work. I knew someone would go there, this movie seems to be fodder for that.

Good to see another digi-book release.

I believe "Mrs. Miniver" will be the first for Greer Garson on Blu-ray. That's great news, of course, and I'll be buying that one, but I'm really hoping to see "Goodbye Mr. Chips" restored on Blu-ray sometime in my lifetime.

Driving Miss Daisy is already available in Germany (region free). I want "Fried Green Tomatoes" from Universal. Jessica Tandy was one of the greatest actresses...
