The classic 1957 musical is planned for Blu-ray.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive will be releasing 'Silk Stockings' on Blu-ray later this year.
You'd think chilled borscht pulses in her veins. She's Ninotchka Yoshenka, a lovely yet severe Soviet envoy sent to Paris to rescue wayward comrades from the perils of champagne and capitalism. But there may be a thaw in Ninotchka's Cold War. She meets Steve Canfield, a smoothly brash American who won't take "nyet" for an answer.
Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse recapture the magic of their The Band wagon pairing in this musical based on the same-titled 1955 Broadway hit and on the famed 1939 Greta Garbo comedy Ninotchka. Set to witty Cole Porter tunes, spiked with laughs and featuring the two leads dancing the Eugene Loring-Hermes Pan choreography into timeless emotion, Silk Stockings shows why elegance and fun never go out of style.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Cole Porter in Hollywood: Satin and Silk, hosted by Cyd Charisse; Vintage Theatrical Shorts; and Theatrical Trailer.
