DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES (1962) New 2019 1080p HD Masters From 4K Scans of the Original Negatives 

When Blake Edwards’ powerful film of J.P. Miller’s heartrending teleplay Days of Wine and Roses hit movie screens, it won critical raves, box-office success and shone brightly as a career highlight for its two stars, Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick who play a couple caught in alcoholism’s web. A San Francisco public-relations hotshot is a “social” drinker…who never stops socializing. His vivacious wife starts drinking to keep him company. They live for good times, but eventually good times turn bad. A poignant, harrowing portrait of human lives at their lowest, it also reflects filmmaking at its height. Phil Lathrop’s gorgeous and glorious Black and White cinematography, Lemmon’s and Remick’s searing performances and Henry Mancini’s heartbreaking score are all revealed as never before in this pristine High Definition transfer that pays proper respect to a true cinema classic. Special Features: Commentary by Director Blake Edwards; Vintage Jack Lemmon Interview; Theatrical Trailer. 16×9 Widescreen
