Kino Lorber did right by screen goddess Sophia Loren (Nine) with the release of three of her films on Blu-ray for the first time: The deliciously bawdy sex farce Marriage Italian Style (1964), the lovely comedy Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (1963) and the melodrama Sunflower (1970) made their high-definition debuts on May 3, 2011.
All are presented in their original Italian language with English subtitles and co-star that other gorgeous Italian screen legend of yesteryear, Marcello Mastroianni (8 1/2).
Marriage Italian Style Blu-ray and Sunflower Blu-ray each carry a list price of $29.95.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow Blu-ray was priced higher at $34.95, but it includes the feature-length documentary Vittorio D., a look at Yesterday’s director, the great Vittorio De Sica (Shoeshine).
Bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD discs include trailers and stills galleries.
All of the films (including Vittorio D.) are available in the Sophia Loren Award Collection DVD, which has a suggested retail price of $49.95. The DVDs are not available individually, unlike the three Blu-ray discs.
