Default A Star is Born (Judy Garland) June 22nd

I just noticed that even with the front page news article, there is no thread about this.

Here is the cover art (from classicflix.com):




Warner Home Video has announced A Star is Born, directed by George Cukor and starring Judy Garland, for release on a two-disc Blu-ray Deluxe Special Edition on June 22, including a 40-page booklet with rare photos, press materials and an essay by film historian John Fricke. As previously reported (see blu-ray.com, May 23, 2008), this was the first film to be completely mastered at 6K — from scanning to restoring to mastering.

Special features include:
Introduction
Ten additional and alternate takes
Film effects reel
Vintage featurettes:
A Report by Jack L. Warner
Huge Premiere Hails A Star Is Born Newsreel Montage
A Star Is Born Premiere in Cinemascope
Pantages Premiere TV Special
1956 WB cartoon: A Star is Bored
Trailers:
A Star Is Born (1937)
A Star Is Born (1954)
A Star Is Born (1976)
Audio Vault (audio only):
Two outtakes
Dec. 28, 1942 Lux Radio Theater Broadcast with Judy Garland and Walter Pidgeon)

Day 1 buy for me. You can see a 720p version of the restoration on Netflix right now. Strangely enough though, the dialog channel is missing. Must be a technical goof. Oops. Looks quite a bit better than the DVD.

Just saw this for the first time... the only Judy Garland film apart from Wizard of Oz I've seen - she was really good in it! In general I really rather liked it, I think I'll be getting this - it's sure to be a great transfer/release!

I picked up a flyer for this at the TCM Film Festival and noticed it had a very wonderful piece of news not yet released (and I hope it isn't an error). It mentions, of course the 40-pg digibook, and we know there will be extras...but the flyer says:

"IMPRESSIVE BONUSES

40+ hours (emphasis mine) of Special Features including an hour of never-before-available enhanced content, alternate takes, deleted scenes and excerpts from Garland's audio recording sessions."

If only there was a copy of the real version out there.

I'll pick this one up, but like Cleopatra I'll always know what I am missing.

There is someone who has a complete version of A Star Is Born but it seems they won't play ball with Warner, you can read about it here:

Now that is an interesting article. Thanks!

This Blu may not have it, but I have always been under the impression that this and Cleopatra had been completely destroyed. I had always hoped some survived - and the hope that some did certainly warms the heart for the future.

Thanks so much for posting that!!!

Don't get your hopes up too high. Apparently there's a good chance this "missing" print doesn't really exist...

According to the last I saw when they did the DVD earlier in the OO's that a few scenes had been found but not in great condition no one has the completed version. I still hold out hope that someone out there has a copy, though as the years go on it seems less and less likely. It seems like such a travesty that they could just throw out 1/3 of a film like that and not even save it in a vault somewhere...

Walmart has it for $23.86 (shipping is $ .97)! This is the cheapest I've seen so far!
Fun Fact: I am the same height ( 5'1'') as Carrie Fisher, Jean Harlow, Holly Hunter, Christina Ricci, Emilie De Ravin, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Bell...yes great things do come in small packages :)

Turner Classic Movies Channel will be airing the new high def restored version of "A Star is Born" on June 19th.

Edited to add: According to TCM and the VP of Warner, the movie will be shown as it was seen originally, in its 3 hr debut.

I'm confused. Are they showing the Haver cut? Or something else entirely?
