20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that it will bring the 1950 classic All About Eve to Blu-ray on February 1, 2011. Nominated for 14 Oscars and winner of 6, including Best Picture and Best Director for Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Next year is big on Blu for the Mankiewicz brothers since 2011 should see the release of a spruced up Citizen Kane for its 70th anniversary edition. Kane, of course, won it’s only Oscar out of 9 nominations for Herman J. Mankiewicz and Orson Welles. (What other creative endeavor has ever inspired pairs of brilliant brothers more than the movies?)
Fox will be releasing An Affair to Remember, Leo McCarey’s 1957 tearjerker the same day as All About About Eve (as it happens, the day after the SAG awards). Full-sized views of both Blu-ray book covers, after the cut.
