The Hepburn / O'Toole movie HOW TO STEAL A MILLION is to be released on June 19th in R2 UK in what looks like a bare-bones edition. It's scheduled for an R1 release in December.
Specs unknown.

It'll part of Fox's Studio Classics line, so there will definitely be extras.

I have the Fox R2 Japan release which is stunning. The colors are phenomenal. I'm sure they'll use the same transfer. One of my favorite Audrey Hepburn films.

Now if FOX would release release TWO FOR THE ROAD on DVD
I'd be a very happy Audrey Hepburn fan!

Well, Henry, there's no reason you should've expected a barebones disc, since all Fox Studio Classics titles are pretty loaded Special Editions, despire the low price.

"Two for the road" is due out on R2 at about the same time so hopefully a R1 release will be forthcoming...

Fox released this in R2 Japan last December. Unfortunately, this one is a non-anamorphic transfer. Hopefully, they'll be an eventual R1 anamorphic release.

Two for the road is already available in France on a SE with loads of goodies!

You can find it under the name "Voyages a deux"

I hope the upcoming R1 comes with at least the same extras!

- Audio Commentary by Stanley Donen
- The Face of Fashion in Two for the Road (the evolution of Audrey Hepburn's Look from Funny Face to Two for the Road)
- Stanley Donen and Audrey Hepburn, a winning duo
- Original Theatrical Trailer

The second and third are probably documentaries/featurettes but I'm only guessing.

Still, very nice set of extras, don't you think?

No interview with or commentary from Peter O'Toole?!!

That's just sad.

It sounds like they just ported the LD track over to the DVD. I hope they didn't, because Donen doesn't have much to offer since he gets caught up in watching the movie all over again and lapses into extended periods of silence.

And isn't about time someone at a major home video label did a Special Edition feature on one of Hank Mancini's film scores? I was so disappointed to not even see his name mentioned in all the advance hoopla for the recent Pink Panther box. Yeah, the cartoon character was memorable - but I'd bet a lot of that was due to the classic sax theme Mancini composed.

>He didn't do anything for Lawrence of Arabia, I can't imagine how you could be surprised. The man is getting up there in years, you know.



He participated in commentaries for The Ruling Class and The Stunt Man. If he's not up for a commentary anymore, then surely he would be for at least a brief interview -- although he looks frail, from what I've heard, he's in good health. A friend of mine saw him bicycling all around Telluride when he was there a few years ago. As a final note, Eli Wallach, who apparently will be participating in the commentary for How to Steal a Million, is 17 years *older* than O'Toole.

As for Lawrence, O'Toole probably felt he'd already said enough about it. (Just my guess.)
