New Bedazzled DVD

BedazleddvdNext week 20th Century Fox will finally be releasing Stanley Donen's Bedazzled (1967) on NTSC Region-1 DVD. The movie has been available in the UK on PAL DVD for a few years, but next week will mark the first time this classic comedy has been available on DVD in the US.

The movie stars Dudley Moore as the hapless Stanley Moon, a cook working at Whimpy Burger who is hopelessly in love with a waitress named Margaret (Eleanor Bron), but Margret hardly knows that he's alive. When Stanley decides to kill himself and end his misery, the smooth-talking George Spiggott (Peter Cook), a.k.a. Satan, appears and grants Stanley seven wishes to help him win over Margaret. Unfortunately his attempts are thwarted at every turn by the appearance of the Seven Deadly Sins, which include the lovely Lilian Lust (Raquel Welch).

The new 20th Century Fox Bedazzled DVD boasts some terrific extras including interviews with Dudley Moore and Peter Cook, the original theatrical trailer and a conversation about Bedazzled with Harold Ramis who directed the rather awful 2000 remake of the film starring Brendan Fraser. The DVD also features a new widescreen print with both stereo and mono sound.

If you don’t already own the PAL DVD release of this stylish & funny film, I highly recommend picking up the new 20th Century Fox DVD when it’s released on April 3. It’s currently available on Amazon with a pre-order price of $13.99.
