WINNER OF THREE OSCARS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, CAVALCADE ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY FOR THE FIRST-TIME-EVER IN CELEBRATION OF ITS 80TH ANNIVERSARY
The Leading Write-In Vote Getter in Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s VOICE YOUR CHOICE Initiative Debuts on Blu-ray August 6
The acclaimed screen epic based on Noel Coward's popular play that earned three Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director for Frank Lloyd, Cavalcade arrives on Blu-ray for the first-time-ever August 6 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. This timeless classic received the most write-in votes in the studio’s first-of-its-kind VOICE YOUR CHOICE campaign, a unique initiative allowing film lovers to vote on classic films from each decade - from the 1930s through the 1960s - they’d like to see digitally restored and transferred to Blu-ray for the very first time. This new restoration was created using the only existing elements available from the Academy Film Archive and is being made available in the best presentation possible.
Nostalgic and atmospheric, Cavalcade traces the lives of two different families over three decades, from the Boer War at the close of the 19th century through World War I and the early 1930's. The tumultuous and rapid changes of the new 20th century also bring a cavalcade of changes for the upper class Marryots (Clive Brook, Oscar® nominee Diana Wynyard), and their maid and butler, the Bridges (Herbert Mundin, Una O'Connor). The effect of the world's great events on these families is a rich mingling of human drama and historical perspective.
