|Blu-ray edition of The Magic Christian|
Amazon's description: This zany British comedy finds a homeless hobo (Ringo Starr) being adopted by the world s richest man, Sir Guy Grand (Peter Sellers). Setting sail on the luxury liner The Magic Christian, Sir Grand sets out to test the limit of human avarice. Wilfred Hyde White plays the drunken captain, Yul Brynner a chanteuse transvestite along with notable star appearances from John Cleese as the director of Sotheby's, Raquel Welch, Roman Polanski and Richard Attenborough.
Directed by Joseph McGrath from a Terry Southern script, the film clocks in at 88 minutes. This is a PAL release for region B/2 blu-ray players.
While were asleep at the wheel, Ringo's first non-Beatles film, "Candy" was released on Blu-ray in the USA last May, in a brand new 2K HD restoration.
|"Candy", filmed in 1967 and released in 1968 - out on Blu-ray in 2016.|
It's funny how film-collecting Beatles fans will still have to collect some films from one country and some from another to keep their collections up-to-date. Not to mention, having to own several blu-ray players or both PAL and NTSC compatible television sets. And no, these aren't films that will be on Netflix or HBO etc anytime soon, we think.
