Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Paul Mazursky’s directorial début, co-written with Larry Tucker, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) is a satiric comedy of manners focusing on two Eisenhower-era couples played by Robert Culp (Hannie Calder) & Natalie Wood (Love with the Proper Stranger) and Elliott Gould (Busting) & Dyan Cannon (8 Heads in a Duffle Bag) who must confront the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

Of course, they do this with varying levels of timidity and gusto, and the result is a sharp yet generous-spirited send-up of social mores, spectacularly acted by its quartet of anxious protagonists.

Bonus features on this Twilight Time release include the following:

-Isolated Music Track
-Audio Commentary with Film Historians Julie Kirgo and Nick Redman
-Audio Commentary with Director/Co-Writer Paul Mazursky, and Actors Robert Culp, Elliott Gould, and Dyan Cannon
-Tales of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice
