**Fox** has announced a March 31st release date for South Pacific (Blu-Ray) - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition. The 2-disc set will retail for $34.99, but is available at for only $27.99.

It will match the 2006 SD set with "General Release" and "Road Show" versions and all the same bonus features with the addition of a new full-length documentary: Passion, Prejudice and South Pacific: Creating An American Masterpiece. Details below.

It all starts "Some Enchanted Evening," when a young American nurse from Little Rock (Mitzi Gaynor) meets the handsome and mysterious French planter (Rossano Brazzi) on a South Pacific island during World War II. Seeking respite from the battles around them, they find refuge in each other as their romance blooms in the lush tropical paradise. The natural beauty of the islands, the hijinks of the sailors, the danger of war, the passion of young love and the strength of true love are joined by a sensational Rodgers Hammerstein score.

Surrounding this Oscar-winning classic are special features as a behind-the-scenes making-of featurette, a songs-only option, Sinalong subtitles, vintage stage excerpts with the original Broadway stars, insightful commentary, and much, much more!
