Cover artwork revealed for the May 2012 Blu-ray release of Doris Day & Rock Hudson’s ‘Pillow Talk’February 22, 2012 3 Comments
In January 2012, we announced how Universal Pictures USA were this year celebrating its 100th anniversary by releasing on Blu-ray “newly restored” editions of 13 of its most iconic films. The chosen titles include Doris Day and Rock Hudson’s 1959 box office hit ‘Pillow Talk‘.
In our initial article we made a plea to the folks at Universal to drop their disappointing cover artwork used on the 2009 DVD re-issue of ‘Pillow Talk’. We instead urged them to revert to the cheery, eye catching cover sleeve shot used on their 2003 DVD release (which we know so many of you preferred!).
Well we are just thrilled to reveal here that Universal did indeed listen to our concerns and have produced a truly lovely cover sleeve for their upcoming Blu-ray release which is available to pre-order now from amazon.com.
The 2012 Blu-ray features a new 1080p video transfer of ‘Pillow Talk’ which is described as “erupting with dazzling color and detail”. Included is a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack and a selection of bonus features (detailed below). This will notably be the first Doris Day film to be issued on Blu-ray format.
