Olive Films has announced that they are adding the drama Lady From Louisiana to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by Bernard Vorhaus and stars John Wayne, Ona Munson, Ray Middleton, Henry Stephenson, and Dorothy Dandridge. Lady From Louisiana will be available in stores and online beginning on May 28th.
In the film, northern lawyer John Reynolds (Wayne) travels to New Orleans to try and clean up the local crime syndicate based around a lottery. Although he meets Julie Mirbeau (Munson) and they are attracted to each other, the fact that her father (Stephenson) heads the lottery means they end up on opposite sides. When her father is killed, Julie becomes more and more involved in the shady activities and in blocking Reynolds’ attempts at prosecution. Lady From Louisiana was released in April of 1941.
Olive Films has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
