    Culver City, Calif. (Sept. 30, 2002) - Director John Huston's
    outstanding boxing
    drama, starring Jeff Bridges (The Muse, KPAX), Candy Clark (Buffy the
    Vampire Slayer,
    At Close Range), Stacy Keach (American History X, TV's "The New Mike
    Hammer"),
    and Susan Tyrrell (Flesh and Blood, The Demolitionist) will debut on DVD
    December
    10, 2002. Often considered an overlooked gem, FAT CITY is credited for
    reviving the
    directing career of Huston and launching the acting career of Jeff
    Bridges. In addition,
    Stacy Keach and Susan Tyrrell provide riveting performances, which
    garnered Tyrrell an
    Academy Awardr Nomination.

    Jeff Bridges stars as the likeable, simpleminded amateur boxer on a
    brief rise who
    catches the eye of an aging fighter (Keach) heading downward in this
    1972 film by John
    Huston and based on the novel by Leonard Gardner. Keach's character
    becomes the
    younger man's mentor, and the two hit central California's tanktown
    circuit of small
    matches for small money, interspersed with visits to smoke-filled bars
    and hellish gyms.
    Theirs is a cut-rate dream, but real and driving and, finally, simply
    punishing.
