Blu-ray Release: Bananas

Blu-ray Release Date: Nov. 14, 2017
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Writer (here with Mickey Rose)-director-actor Woody Allen’s madcap Bananas (1971) is part wild political satire/part screwball romance.

Allen stars as the remarkably named Fielding Mellish, a nebbish whose yen for a political activist (Louise Lasser, Crimewave) involves him in a South American country’s exploding revolution, up to and including his eventual and unwitting appearance as a Castro-like dictator.

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of the PG-13-rated film includes an isolated music track and an original theatrical trailer.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
