As is the case every month, a new slate of classic movies are being released on Blu-ray this February. While not many are making the transfer as in previous months, there are a few great titles worth checking out.
On February 5th, Warner Bros. will mark the 40th anniversary of Bob Fosse's Cabaret (1972), which won Liza Minnelli the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as the decadent Sally Bowles. Also on that day, Disney will release several editions of their animated classic, Peter Pan (1953), including a three-disc Diamond Edition with a ton of extras.
Next on the slate is Otto Preminger's classic film noir, Laura (1944), which starred Dana Andrews as a private investigator digging into the past of a murdered socialite (Gene Tierney). That film will be released by 20th Century Fox on February 5th.
Finally, on February 19th, the Criterion Collection will release Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront (1954), which starred Marlon Brando in his iconic Oscar-winning performance as Terry Malloy, a washed-up prizefighter turned dockworker who's compelled to testify after witnessing a mob murder.
As always, the classic movies being released this month are great additions to the collections of movie buffs and casual fans alike.
