No, this is not a spoof announcement.
In their first wide-release of new material in two and-a-half years, 20th Century-Fox has announced Stars and Stripes Forever (Blu-Ray / DVD Combo) for release on December 13th.
Fox's classic output has been dormant since May 2009's Man Hunt, as they mainly focused on re-releasing catalog titles on Blu-Ray. No word yet, but hopefully this will be followed up by many releases from their deep catalog.
This 2-disc combo pack contains 1 Blu-Ray disc and 1 Standard DVD. Retail will be $34.99, but it's available at ClassicFlix.com for only $27.99.
Bonus features are below, however it is not clear if they are exclusive to the Blu-Ray or if they are included in both.
Stars and Stripes Forever is the rousing and patriotic march heard every Fourth of July, and, the inspirational film about the American music legend who wrote it, John Philip Sousa.
Beginning with Sousa’s days as a sergeant major in the United States Marine Corps and leader of the Corps’ famous marching band, Stars and Stripes Forever transports you back to the 1890s and Sousa’s ascent to world renown as a composer and conductor of The Sousa Band. Three-time Academy Award Nominee Clifton Webb shines as Souza, “The March King,” along with Robert Wagner, Debra Paget and Ruth Hussey.
