Blu-ray Release: Manhattan Murder Mystery

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 20, 2018
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Writer-actor-director Woody Allen’s (Love and Death) 1993 Manhattan Murder Mystery is a delightful comedy whodunit, starring Allen and the always-game Diane Keaton (Interiors) as a middle-aged married couple suddenly energized as she enthusiastically and he reluctantly find themselves involved in the titular killing.

Alan Alda (Crimes and Misdemeanors) and Anjelica Huston (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) are also drawn into the increasingly perilous proceedings, in which Manhattan – gorgeously captured by cinematographer Carlo Di Palma – is once again another of Allen’s most significant characters.

Special features in this latest Twilight Time Blu-ray release of a Woody Allen film include an isolated music and effects 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!

Oh, and for what it’s worth during these troubled times, I’m proud to declare that Woody Allen remains–unequivocally–America’s greatest living filmmaker.
