    LOS ANGELES, CA (April 19, 2011) – Hold on to your hats and get ready for three action-packed films when THE HUSTLER, THE COMANCHEROS and TIGERLAND come to Blu-ray for the first time from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of THE HUSTLER and THE COMANCHEROS, the two classic films are available in special Blu-ray book packaging, including rare photos from the Fox archives and brand new special features.





    THE COMANCHEROS

    John Wayne is Capt. Jake Cutter, a Texas Ranger determined to crush a powerful outlaw gang that's selling guns to the Indians. Cutter is also trying to bring in gambler Paul Regret (Whitman), who's wanted for murder. Both missions get entangled when Cutter crosses paths with Regret unexpectedly, and the men form an unlikely friendship while Regret decides which side of the law he's really on. Co-starring Ina Balin, Nehemiah Persoff and Lee Marvin, The Comancheros is a rousing western, and the last film of director Michael Curtiz.




    Special features include audio commentary with Patrick Wayne and Film Historians and Fox Movietone News. New special features include The Duke At Fox Documentary, The Comancheros and the Battle For The Southwest Documentary, Vintage Comancheros Comic Book Photo Gallery and a Conversation with Stuart Whitman Audio Interview.




    THE HUSTLER

    With his boyish grin and laid-back good looks, Fast Eddie Felson has fleeced his share of pool-hall gamblers. Now the brash pool shark is after the king of the cue stick: Minnesota Fats. But after losing to Fats in a grueling, 36-hour match, Eddie hits the skids. Only the intervention of a ruthless gambler, who stakes his claim to Eddie's soul, can teach this hustler the cruel art of winning.




    Special features include audio commentary by Paul Newman, Life In The Fast Lane, Swimming With Sharks: The Art of the Hustle, The Hustler: The Inside Story, Milestones In Cinema History, Paul Newman: Hollywood’s Cool Hand, Trick Shot Analysis with Mike Massey, How To Make The Shot with Mike Massey. Never before seen special features include Paul Newman At Fox Documentary, Jackie Gleason: The Big Man Documentary and The Real Hustler: Walter Tevis Documentary.




    TIGERLAND

    Just released from the base stockade, recruit Roland Bozz (Farrell) joins a platoon of young soldiers preparing to ship out to Vietnam. Bozz's independence and outright defiance draws fire from his own men as well as commanding officers. But when the platoon is sent to Tigerland, a helish training ground that is the last stop before Vietnam, Bozz's leadership and loyalty bring his men together - triggering extraordinary consequences.




    Special features include audio commentary by Joel Schumacher and a casting session with Colin Farrell. Never before seen extras include The Real Tigerland Documentary, Joel Schumacher Journey To Tigerland Documentary, Ross Klavan: Ode To Tigerland Documentary.

    That is one lousy cover for The Hustler. Brutal. Back in the day, I bought a pioneer laserdisc player just to be able to enjoy The Hustler in widescreen. The pan n scan version on videotape was/is an atrocity.

    I'll pick up THE COMANCHEROS. Especially as they seem to have found the long lost extended version with 50 minutes of extra footage.
