Blu-Ray News #383: The Long Ships (1964).

Directed by Jack Cardiff
Starring Richard Widmark, Sidney Poitier, Russ Tamblyn, Rosanna Schiaffino

In June, Imprint is bringing Jack Cardiff’s The Long Ships (1964) to Blu-Ray, and a Technirama picture coming out in high definition is always a good thing.

I’ve never seen The Long Ships, and I’ve always wanted to. It’s got Richard Widmark as a Viking, Sidney Poitier with crazy-looking hair and the already-mentioned Technirama. What’s not to like? Plus, it was done around the same time Poitier and Widmark made the incredible The Bedford Incident (1964). Really looking forward to this one.
