20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced the addition of the musical comedy On The Riviera to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by Walter Lang and starred Danny Kaye, Gene Tierney, Corinne Calvet, Marcel Dalio, and Jean Murat. On The Riviera is currently available for pre-order online and will be available in stores everywhere beginning on October 8th.
You’ll double over with laughter at Danny Kaye’s Golden Globe-winning dual performances in this classic musical farce that was nominated for two Oscars Awards. Faced with a scheduling conflict, a womanizing French financier-aviator (Kaye) hires a nightclub performer (also Kaye) to temporarily impersonate him. But things go hilariously awry as one man tries to romance two beautiful women (Tierney and Calvet) – who both think he’s their lover. On The Riviera was released in May of 1951.
The On The Riviera Blu-ray will include several special features, including:
- The Riviera Story: A Remarkable Impersonation
- A Portrait of Danny Kaye
- The Jack of Clubs: Choreographer Jack Cole
- Theatrical Trailer
