Today marks the 50th anniversary of director Arthur Hiller’s timeless classic, Love Story. The milestone offers the perfect opportunity for this film to join the Paramount Presents Blu-ray line on February 9th, 2021.
The release date is deliberately just ahead of Valentine’s Day and for good reason. Back in 2002, the AFI placed Love Story at position #9 on its list of the 100 greatest love stories of all time.
Paramount has restored the original film with a new 4K transfer for the new Paramount Presents: Love Story Blu-ray. A Digital copy also boasting the new transfer is included.
The packaging follows the Paramount Presents blueprint with a foldout foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster, and an interior spread with key movie moments.
A bonus feature included is Filmmaker Focus with film historian Leonard Maltin. Other previously released extras are comprised of:
- Commentary by director Arthur Hiller
- Introduction by film critic Ben Mankiewicz
- Love Story: A Classic Remembered
- Theatrical trailer
