Default The Miriam Collection

Here's an excerpt from a press release at

THE MIRIAM COLLECTION will issue deluxe releases of classic, foreign and modern cinema. The label will also restore and re-release older classics as well as foreign films and some modern favorites. Many of these releases will include extra features including never before seen footage that will surely satisfy the appetite of classic film lovers worldwide. The first release from THE MIRIAM COLLECTION will be the Academy Award nominated 1961 classic epic “El Cid,” produced by Samuel Bronston, starring Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren. Never released on DVD, this classic film tells the story of the legendary Spanish hero, Rodrigo Diaz, who succeeded in driving the Moors from Spain. After “El Cid,” THE MIRIAM COLLECTION will release a steady stream of past and current classics including three more Samuel Bronston produced films such as “Fall of the Roman Empire” starring Alec Guiness and Sophia Loren, “55 Days at Peking” starring Charlton Heston and Ava Gardner, and “Circus World” starring John Wayne and Claudia Cardinale. Foreign classics to be released under THE MIRIAM COLLECTION include Akira Kurosawa's last film “Madadayo,” and Pedro Almodovar’s “Dark Habits” and “What Have I Done to Deserve This?” The first modern classic to be released will be “The Deal,” the 2003 British TV movie that follows the rise of Prime Minister Tony Blair with the same writer, director, and star of Stephen Frears’ “The Queen.” Additionally, each year there will be one film released under the banner “Bob and Harvey’s Pick” which will be selected by Bob and Harvey Weinstein. All proceeds of this release will be given to charity.

Two titles that I would like to see US releases are My Blueberry Nights and Control. My Blueberry Nights has been released in other regions on .
