The Stooge with Martin and Lewis on Blu-ray November

– Commissions Earned –

The 1951 film The Stooge starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis is coming to Blu-ray Disc for the very first time on November 10th via Paramount. The film, directed by Norman Taurog, co-starred Polly Bergen, Marion Marshall, and Frances Bavier.

UPDATE: The tech specs for the release will include a 1080p HD video presentation in Black & White and in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono sound mix.

As far as I know, no bonus materials will be included with this release. However, I could be wrong. You can now find the debut of the film to Blu-ray Disc available for preorder over at Amazon. Below, you can find what Amazon has up about this on the product list.

“THE MARTIN & LEWIS CLASSIC FOR THE FIRST TIME ON BLU-RAY! Money isn’t everything and Bill Miller is the guy who keeps proving it. He’s carved out a modest niche as a singer in the off-off-vaudeville circuit. But suddenly his act is big news. Well, not just his act. He’s now teamed with a manic comic. Yet Bill can’t admit that the reason for his success is The Stooge. One sings, one clowns…sounds like anyone you know? Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis bring their straight man-funnyman act to this show biz story set in the 1930s. Songs include “Who’s Your Little Whozis?” and comedy moments include just about any time Lewis is on screen. Don’t miss the fun when he turns Dino’s “Just One More Chance” into a zany production number of rising curtains, falling sandbags, and a flying comic-on-a-rope. You’ll be glad to give it more than one chance!”
