This November, the Criterion Collection will present Orson Welles’s elegiac second feature, The Magnificent Ambersons, in its first-ever Blu-ray release, an edition packed with supplemental features. Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis star in Billy Wilder’s gender-bending Some Like It Hot, a pinnacle of Hollywood comedy, appearing in a new 4K restoration. David Byrne explores the wild, wild life of Texas in the musical odyssey True Stories, making its Blu-ray debut in a special edition that also includes a never-before-released CD of the film’s complete soundtrack. And Kenji Mizoguchi’s long-unavailable late-career classic A Story from Chikamatsu will appear in a new 4K restoration. Plus: the previously announced Blu-ray box set Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema celebrates the visionary Swedish director’s 100th birthday with the most comprehensive collection of his films ever released on home video.
