Intelligently directed by Sydney Pollack (The Way We Were), 1977’s Bobby Deerfield is a romantic melodrama starring the beautiful young Al Pacino (Scarface) as an American driver on the European racing circuit who falls in love with an impulsive eccentric (Marthe Keller, Fedora). Their love affair takes on added depth when she challenges his sullen introversion – and when he discovers her tragic secret.

Highlighted by Henri Decaë’s (The 400 Blows, Purple Noon) dreamy cinematography and a lovely score from the great Dave Grusin, available here as an isolated track, the Bobby Deerfield Blu-ray also includes an archival audio commentary by director Pollack and the film’s original theatrical trailer.
