Blu-ray release for Boom!

Friday, 19 April 2019 09:41

Boom BRShout Factory are releasing Boom! on Blu-Ray on May 28, 2019.

Info from the Shout Factory website:

113 min, 2.35:1, English, Region A,    Subtitles: English

Taylor and Burton are explosive in this "heady serio-comic brew [from] Tennessee Williams ..." — Time Out

Cinema icons (and twice-married couple) Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton light up the screen in what acclaimed playwright Tennessee Williams (A Streetcar Named Desire) described as the best film adaptation of his work he'd ever seen. Sissy Goforth (Taylor), the world's richest woman, has retired to her lavish island estate to dictate her memoirs. Her reclusive lifestyle is thrown into upheaval when roguish poet Chris Flanders (Burton) washes up on her beach. With the mysterious habit of calling upon a lady one step before the undertaker, Flanders has become known as "The Angel Of Death" — but an undaunted Goforth opts to tempt fate when she chooses to take Flanders as her next — and last — lover.

A notorious bomb on its initial release, Boom! has since built up a cult following for its one-of-a-kind mixture of camp, lyricism, and the highly combustible chemistry of its two leads. More than fifty years after Boom!'s debut, Shout! Factory invites you to light the fuse on a re-examination of this highly unusual drama.
Bonus Features

Les Reed O.B.E. has passed away

Tuesday, 16 April 2019 08:07

We were extremely sad to hear that Les Reed O.B.E., passed away on Monday 15th April, aged 83.  Les was a valued and influential member of The John Barry Seven between 1959 and 1962, and went on to a highly successful career as a  composer/arranger, which included writing hit songs for such as Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck, The Applejacks, The Fortunes, Lulu, Herman's Hermits and Des O'Connor.

In particular, songs such as Delilah, It's Not Unusual (Tom Jones), The Last Waltz (Engelbert Humperdinck), and There's a Kind of Hush (Herman's Hermits and The Carpenters) were huge sellers and known worldwide.

On a personal note, Les was so patient and helpful in answering our many questions during the writing of the book about the JB7, and we were looking forward to reciprocating regarding his own book on which he had been working for some time.
 
A wonderfully talented, kind and generous man, he will be badly missed by his family and all who knew him.  Our sincere condolences to his sister Celia, daughter Donna, and grandsons Alex and Dom.

It's All Happening DVD/blu-ray

Tuesday, 16 April 2019 07:55

Coming soon from Network is a DVD/blu-ray of It's All Happening, the 1963 film musical in which John Barry is seen conducting recording sessions by Johnny de Little and Dick Kallman.

The blu-ray is apparently only available while stocks last, which makes it a limited edition of a sort, so probably best to order now if interested.
