US Blu-ray press release:
Quote
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will bring Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity (1944) and Orson Welles' Touch of Evil (1958) to Blu-ray this Spring.

Both highly anticipated catalog classics make their Blu-ray debuts on April 15th.


Touch of Evil

Synopsis: Directed by Orson Welles, Touch of Evil is a film noir masterpiece whose Hollywood backstory is as unforgettable as the movie itself.

The Blu-ray features three versions of the film: the Preview Version, the Theatrical Version and the Reconstructed Version, based on Orson Welles' original vision. All three are presented in 1080p with a English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track. Special features include:
•Preview Version Commentary with Welles Historians Jonathan Rosenbaum and James Naremore
•Theatrical Version Commentary with Writer/Filmmaker F.X. Feeney
•Reconstructed Version Commentary with Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh and Reconstruction Producer Rick Schmidlin
•Reconstructed Version Commentary with Reconstruction Producer Rick Schmidlin
•Bringing Evil to Life
•Evil Lost and Found
•Theatrical Trailer

Nice to hear that about Double Indemnity.... I don't give a damn about Touch of Evil..... You know what would be mighty interesting - if we could get, as a bonus feature, the original final scene of Double Indemnity, where Neff is executed while Keyes watches

That scene was definitely filmed. There are stills from it. You think there isn't a single print of it somewhere, in some vault?

Lets move this discussion over to the DOUBLE INDEMNITY thread. I didn't realize you'd made a thread for it... I've been tellin CJ for a while, if we have a thread for every noir, it doesn't make sense not to have one for DI, one of the most famous of them all!

TCM is showing what they are calling "Touch of Evil: Extended Edition" on Thursday at 12:15 a.m ET.

(I do not know the difference between one edition and another; I saw one version of the movie once and couldn't stand it.)

Nice cinematography.   Boring plot.
