    Behind the Scenes Mini-Documentary Featuring Costume Designer Helen Rose

    After covering a golf tournament in Los Angeles, sportswriter Mike Hagen returns to his New York home with a tan. And with a fashion-designer wife he scarcely knows.

    Romantic pitfalls surface gleefully in this Vincente Minnelli-directed comedy featuring an Oscar®-winning* script and Manhattanites – an ex-flame (Dolores Gray), low-life hustlers(Chuck Connors, Jesse White) and an addled palooka (Mickey Shaughnessy) among them – who rub elbows and funny bones. Lauren Bacall plays the stylish title character. As Hagen, Gregory Peck gamely displays his comedic flair, pratfalling into a chair, slyly mimicking Bacall and coping with indignity as ravioli is served…in his lap.

    YES!!! Now if we can get The Opposite Sex (1956) on blu, then we'll have the great Dolores Gray's entire MGM out put on blu ray!

    Wow! Another shocker to me. Great news! Fun film with an excellent cast. Really enjoy Jack Cole in this.

    Excellent news. A good looking DVD becomes an even better blu-ray. Queen of Outer Space next?

    Be patient, Rick. It's just a matter of time before those other good looking DVDs that Warners has like The Prodigal, Rome Adventure, Mame, Legend Of Lylah Clare, Any Wednesday, Harum Scarum, Queen Of Outer Space, Palm Springs Weekend and Story Of Mankind get released. Warners can't release them all at once.

    Really a great choice. Designing Woman is one of the A list movies I dreamed WB would get around to. Hope they do more quality classics like this in the future. : ) !

    Very surprised and delighted by this announcement. I think The Opposite Sex would be a grand choice for Dolores Gray fans.

    Seconded!

    The Jim Wynorski remake featuring Kelli Maroney in the title role is due out this summer. Might bode well for a Blu release of the original.

    Onto my wish list Designing Woman goes. More Lauren Bacall is always welcome:
