Number: TWILIGHT292-BR

THE LONG, HOT SUMMER (1958) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Orson Welles, Lee Remick, Paul Newman, Angela Lansbury, Joanne Woodward, Anthony Franciosa
Directed By:  Martin Ritt
Composed By:  Alex North

“Paul Newman’s performance as Ben Quick is as mean and keen as a cackle-edge scythe.”
– Time Magazine

“Strikingly directed by Martin Ritt…melodrama frank and unashamed …Highlighting the diverse and contrasting moods is the fine score by Alex North.”
– Variety

The extraordinary team of director Martin Ritt and writers Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank Jr. adapt a pair of William Faulkner narratives in The Long, Hot Summer (1958). Paul Newman gives perhaps his most Newmanian performance as a crafty drifter who drops like a bomb into the wealthy Varner family, already a stewpot of lust, rivalry, and dysfunction. Orson Welles is the manipulative paterfamilias; Joanne Woodward his intelligent, wary daughter; Anthony Franciosa his weakling son; Angela Lansbury his long-suffering mistress; and Lee Remick his sexed-up daughter-in-law. This seductive cocktail is handsomely scored by the great Alex North.

Wow! This new transfer is a dream come true for those who love this film. The old dvd was noticeably softer than most (though still worthy of many viewings). Now even the opening credits, which often suffer added grain from the optical process, are sharp and as detailed as the best 35mm film transfers I've seen. The appearance of a fine film grain and lack of artificial edge enhancement give it a truly cinematic appearance. So glad to see what is to me one of the best of the great 50's southern dramas (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof another good example) receiving the 'Criterion' treatment from Twilight Time. Thanks
