This Christmas, beautiful bodices as well as festive gift wrappings will be ripped, and the darker side of the medical community will be explored through the lacerating black humor of an Academy Award®-winning Paddy Chayefsky screenplay and the grace under pressure of an unexpectedly powerful lead actress performance that got Oscar®, Golden Globe and BAFTA attention. Following a brush with ballet music contributed to The Gang’s All Here, Twilight Time’s five-film December lineup heartily welcomes onto the label a magnificent full score composition by the supremely talented David Raksin. Sharing marquee space with favorite filmmakers named Woody and Otto and esteemed maestros named John and Michel are new-to-TT director’s chair occupants Bryan Forbes, Robert Fuest and Arthur Hiller. Let the hi-def holiday season revelries commence!
