The Sting

Some great news from the DVD front.

Universal is finally releasing a widescreen DVD of "The Sting," one of the movies that's been on the most-wanted-on-DVD list for years. It'll be available September 6th, but you can pre-order yours here right now, as I just did. It's a 2-disc set from their Legacy Series, which presumably means not only a terrific print, but also a retrospective with interviews from the cast and filmmakers.

Other films getting the Legacy treatment include "The Deer Hunter" and "To Kill A Mockingbird," with a documentary about Gregory Peck produced by his daughter, Cecilia, and an interview with Mary Badham, who played Scout, about her experience working with Peck.
