Good Night and Good Luck, The Searchers and Caddyshack make their HD DVD debuts on August 22 from Warner Home Video. Good Night and Good Luck will be released as an HD-DVD/DVD combo and will be available for $39.99 Suggested Retail Price. The other two titles will sell for $28.99 Suggested Retail Price.
Good Night and Good Luck, the critically acclaimed Oscar- nominated drama starring David Strathairn and directed by George Clooney, chronicles the real-life conflict between newsman Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy. The Searchers, with an indelible image of the American frontier and the men and women who challenged it, stars John Wayne and was directed by John Ford. Caddyshack, 18 holes of fairway foolishness with Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray, did for golf what Animal House did for college fraternities.
Must wonder about The Searchers being a HD DVD release. A 1956 film on HD DVD? Seeing how disastrous Goodfellas and Full Metal Jacket have appeared on HD DVD, is there hope for The Searchers. We’ll find out on August 22, 2006.
