#1 Post by John Johnson » Mon Feb 13, 2017 10:12 pm




Kino Lorber will bring to Blu-ray director Ken Annakin's film Monte Carlo or Bust! a.k.a. Monte Carlo or Bust! (1969)m starring Bourvil, Lando Buzzanca, Walter Chiari, Peter Cook, and Tony Curtis. The release will be available for purchase on April 25.

Synopsis: Screen legend Tony Curtis leads an all-star international cast in this hilarious, romantic and action-packed romp! Set in glorious Monte Carlo, this hugely entertaining follow-up to Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines follows the dashing Schofield (Curtis) as he teams up with the scheming Sir Cuthbert Ware-Armitage (Terry-Thomas) in a zany, winner-take-all car rally beset with scheming competitors, treacherous cliffs - and a very beguiling blonde (Susan Hampshire).

Special Features:
NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian David Del Valle, moderated by Filmmaker Elijah Drenner
Optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature

The label has also revealed the official cover art for the upcoming Blu-ray releases of Anthony Simmons' The Optimists (1973) and Jacques Demy's The Pied Piper (1972). The two releases will be available for purchase in May.

The Optimists

Synopsis: The Optimists tells the story of Sam, a street performer with a unique outlook on life. Sam befriends two children who have led hard-knock lives and teaches them to look at life from a new perspective. The novelty of having a song and dance man as a friend soon turns into something much deeper, as Sam realizes that the children have just as much to teach him about life. Set amongst a wonderful London backdrop, Peter Sellers stars in one of his most charming and tender roles ever in The Optimists. Cinematography by Larry Pizer (Phantom of the Paradise, Isadora).

The Pied Piper

Synopsis: During the Middle Ages, the divided town of Hamelin tries in vain to rid itself of the black plague. When a mysterious musician arrives, can the townspeople put aside their personal agendas to rid themselves of their rat infestation? Or will the petty and greedy town leaders attempt to take advantage of their savior?
London. Greatest City in the world.
