    Simmering Hi-Def Summer

    Posted by Mike Finnegan on

    The summer wind blows hot and fierce with Twilight Time’s five-film midsummer lineup, with one North American premiere of a distinguished historical saga from Japan, plus four other tantalizing titles (from such literary notables as William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal and Dead Poets Society Academy Award® winner Tom Schulman) promising barn-burning fisticuff excitement, mischievously murderous mayhem and star performances that ensure home theater temperatures will rise and surprise.

    Coming August 15 are: 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag (1997), starring Joe Pesci, Andy Comeau and Kristy Swanson, directed by Tom Schulman, score by Andrew Gross; The Emperor in August aka Nihan no ichiban nagai hi ketteiban (2015, Region A only), starring Kôji Yakusho, Masahiro Motoki and Tsutomu Yamazaki, directed by Masato Harada, score by Harumi Fuki, in Japanese with English subtitles; Kid Galahad (1962), starring Elvis Presley, Gig Young and Charles Bronson, directed by Phil Karlson, score by Jeff Alexander; The Long, Hot Summer (1958), starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and Anthony Franciosa, directed by Martin Ritt, score by Alex North; and Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), starring Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn and Montgomery Clift, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, score by Malcolm Arnold and Buxton Orr. Details of each release will follow in July.
