The oh-so-American Stanley Donen (Two for the Road) directs Peter Cook (Those Daring Young Men in their Jaunty Jalopies) and Dudley Moore (Arthur) in 1967 fantastical comedy-romance Bedazzled.

The film is a Faustian tale about a Wimpy bar burger-flipper (Moore) so hopelessly in love with a waitress (Eleanor Bron) that he sells his soul to the devil (Cook) in exchange for seven wishes. All, of course, goes hilariously wrong, up to and including the brief appearance of a beauteous Raquel Welch (Hannie Caulder) as the very incarnation of Lust.

Along with an isolated audio track featuring the music of Dudley Moore, the Blu-ray contains the following special features:

-Peter Cook & Dudley Moore on The Paul Ryan Show
-A Bedazzled Conversation with Harold Ramis
– Original Theatrical Trailers
