The Criterion Collection has a very interesting release this month with the Double Indemnity Blu-ray coming to the UK.
Double Indemnity (1944) is a crime film noir directed by Billy Wilder. Furthermore it stars Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson.
I love these types of films especially if they star Edward G, so I may well review this blu-ray release.
Double Indemnity Blu-ray – Criterion Collection
I expect the picture quality to be excellent due to the fact the film has undergone a new 4K digital restoration.
There’s also a interesting set of extras that you can see listed below.
Whilst this looks like yet another excellent Criterion release its not exactly cheap.
- New 4K Digital Restoration (with uncompressed monaural soundtrack)
- Audio Commentary (Film Critic Richard Schickel)
- Interview with Film Scholar Noah Isenberg, Editor of Billy Wilder on Assignment
- New Conversation with Film Historians Eddie Muller /Imogen Sara Smith
- + More
You can pre-order now on bluray from Amazon or HMV for £25.99 (Prices correct as of 27.05.22).
