Amazon.com has From Here to Eternity listed for release on October 1, 2013. Once I saw this I had to preorder it right away. Hopefully we see more of Burt and Frank films on BD.

Thanks for the link. I used it to pre-order. This has been a phenomenal year for Oscar Best Pictures on Blu-ray.

One of the best films ever made with probably the best cast of actors in one film.

Another Best Picture winner that the Academy got right IMO. One of the very few winners, like Best Years of Our Lives, which can stand repeated viewings and grow in stature over time.

Thankfully, it was not given to Twilight Time.While I am a regular customer of theirs, I also like my discs a little bit cheaper and widely available.

 

I do appreciate their efforts though in releasing titles that would likely never be on blu otherwise. When it comes to a Best Picture winner, however, is a different story.

 

I remember reading this film was originally released in stereo, but those sound masters no longer exist...(?)

Great news!

 

I saw this was coming while perusing amazon.uk recently.  Almost pre-ordered there.  Glad I waited.  The release date listed there is October 7.

Besides the stereo release wasn't From Here To Eternity released in 1:85 widescreen?  Here we go again!

That question has been asked and answered in the Aspect Ratio Thread here.

 

Edit: But you were probably asking if Sony has announced any AR specs on the disc. Sorry for jumping to the wrong conclusion.

Sony's VP of Catalog Restorations Grover Crisp is notoriously meticulous about getting these right...if you read the press release, you'll see that the blu-ray's sourced from a 4k scan from the original camera negative...I believe it was shot in Academy ratio 1.37:1, however!!!

Never seen Miss Kerr's first name spelled "Debra" before!

 

Another must-have release for 2013! What a watershed year this has been for catalog product!

Excellent!  This is one of my favorite films, I'm looking forward to picking it up on October 1.  My wallet is going to hate me, as I also plan on buying The Big ParadeHouse of Wax, and The Little Mermaid.I wonder, will this include the full 44-minute version of "Fred Zinnemann: As I See It" or will it be the same 9-minute excerpt from the DVD.  I'm hoping it's the full version, as I've never seen it before.  But I can live with the 9-minute one, as it's miles ahead of the lousy 2.5-minute "The Making of From Here to Eternity" excerpt from The Lady with the Torch.
