More Universal titles, via TCM's Vault line, are on their way as the double feature Back Street (1941 / 1961) is now up for pre-order at TCM.com. Its release date is set for September 26th and no additional specs are known at this time.
Fannie Hurst's novel becomes a pair of classic melodramas in this twin bill.
Back Street (1941)
Reunited in New York City years after their marriage plans were sabotaged, Margaret Sullavan discovers that Charles Boyer is now wed to another. Desperate to remain a part of his life, she agrees to become his mistress. With Richard Carlson, Tim Holt, Frank McHugh.
Back Street (1961)
Producer Ross Hunter's 1961 filming of Back Street stars Susan Hayward (in a career-defining role) as a woman who meets and falls for a handsome Marine (John Gavin) returning home from World War II. Fate brings them back together when Hayward moves to the Big Apple to start a fashion design career, but upon learning that Gavin now has a wife and child, she must stay in the shadows and is forced to accept her role as his mistress. Co-stars Vera Miles, Charles Drake, Virginia Grey.
And while this set may be exclusive to TCM, nowhere else will these films be available to rent except at ClassicFlix.com. Put them in your rental queue now and they will be available for shipment in late September.
