Mayerling to get DVD release
From Films Around the World:Posted: April 29th, 2013
Films Around the World, Inc. is delighted to confirm that the Audrey Hepburn/Mel Ferrer MAYERLING will indeed be released on DVD in 2013. After several years of discussion, Audrey Hepburn’s sons, and Mel Ferrer’s widow, have authorized its distribution by us.
We have digitally remastered it from the original kinescope negative, and upgraded the new master using the latest enhancement software and expertise; it will be the first release on our new “Mr. FAR-W Video” silver and blue label, initially available through Amazon.com.
The first public exhibition since the original (and only) live television broadcast, in 1957, will be as the closing event at the Stadtmuseum Munchen/Filmmeuseum’s Audrey Hepburn Retrospective, at 9PM on June 24, 2013.
We mastered iMAYERLING in two versions — one with the original commercials, and one without them. Each version can either be played straight through, or by the four acts of the original broadcast. The masters have been delivered to both Amazon and the Stadtmuseum; check on our website or directly with Amazon for the availability of the DVDs.
