The Eddy Duchin Story movie scene

Tyrone Power stars in The Eddy Duchin Story.

Tyrone Power stars as charismatic music man Eddy Duchin in the 1956 music-filled biographical drama The Eddy Duchin Story, which makes its Blu-ray debut from Twilight Time.

Directed by veteran George Sidney and shot by the great Harry Stradling, Sr. (a two-time Oscar winner for My Fair Lady and The Picture of Dorian Gray), the film tells the story of Duchin, who came out of nowhere to become one of the 1930s’ top pianists and bandleaders. Kim Novak (Pal Joey, Picnic) co-stars as the society dame who helps, loves, and marries him. Sadly, Duchin’s stratospheric success is laced with tragedy…

Bonus features on the Blu-ray include an isolated music and effects track (the score was composed by George Duning, who picked up an Oscar nomination for his work) and the film’s original theatrical trailer

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, pre-order this one directly from distributor Screen Archives NOW!
