TCM Shop is promoting a restored by Library of Congress new DVD of the classic Christmas movie.
I should have called this thread "Remember The Night New Restored Version at TCM Shop. "My title makes it sound like they changed the ending of the film or something.
Anyone have any information. Will the first discs be pressed?
From the website:
Turner Classic Movies, Universal and the Library of Congress are proud to present this new DVD release of Remember the Night (1940), featuring—for the first time—a beautiful transfer in crisp black-and-white from an original negative preserved by the Library of Congress.
Screen icons Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray star in this heartwarming holiday classic, the first of four films to feature the legendary duo. Stanwyck plays a petty shoplifter on trial for swiping jewelry just before Christmas, while MacMurray is the Assistant District Attorney who sends her off to jail then suffers a crisis of conscience and bails her out. When he invites her to join his family for the holidays, a love blossoms between the two that will strain, but ultimately redeem, all parties. Featuring a wonderful supporting cast (Beulah Bondi, Sterling Holloway and Elizabeth Patterson), stylish costumes by Edith Head, a charming script by Preston Sturges and superb direction by Mitchell Leisen, Remember the Night (1940) is a timeless holiday favorite that can be enjoyed in any season.
I had the privilege of seeing this film at AFI theater in Silver Spring MD last week. It was great seeing it on the big screen with an audience.
