'Carmen Jones' Coming To Blu-Ray DVD 12/3


So a few months ago I reported that Carmen Jones, 20th Century Fox’s 1954 film with Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte (with Pearl Bailey and a very, very young Diahann Carroll as well), directed

by the great Otto Preminger, was finally coming out on blu-ray DVD.


Home Video ran, a few months ago, an online contest in which they asked film lovers

to vote for their favorite Fox film, two from each decade, from the 1930’s to

the 1960’s, that they would most like to see released on blu-ray, and Carmen

Jones (as well as the Spencer Tracy/Katherine

Hepburn comedy Desk Set) won

hands down, as the 1950’s picks.

So Fox has announced that they will be releasing the films

on blu-ray. The only problem is that you’ll have to wait until December December 3rdfor it to come out.

The reason for the delay was most likely due to the

restoration work that needs to be done on the film, which is a process that

always takes a lot of time and patience.

The film is not yet listed on Amazon, but, no doubt, it will

be soon.
