The Furies (1950) from Criterion in June - 3 DAY SPECIAL PRICE

**Criterion** has announced a June (exact date yet unknown) release date for The Furies - Criterion Collection. It will retail for $39.95, but is available at for only $29.99. However, for 3 days only (until March 18th), we'll have it for the SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICE of $25.99. The usual plethora of bonus features accompany this Criterion release and stars Barbara Stanwyck, Walter Huston (his last film), Wendell Corey, Judith Anderson, Gilbert Roland, Thomas Gomez, Beulah Bondi, Wallace Ford and was directed by Anthony Mann. Details below.

Barbara Stanwyck and Walter Huston are at their fierce finest in master Hollywood craftsman Anthony Mann’s crackling western melodrama The Furies. In 1870s New Mexico Territory, megalomaniacal widowed ranch owner T. C. Jeffords (Huston, in his final role) butts heads with his daughter, Vance (Stanwyck), a firebrand with serious daddy issues, over her dowry, choice of husband, and, finally, ownership of the land itself. Both sophisticated in its view of frontier settlement and ablaze with searing domestic drama, The Furies is a hidden treasure of American filmmaking, boasting Oscar–nominated cinematography and vivid supporting turns from Judith Anderson, Wendell Corey, and Gilbert Roland.
