Subject:        Throne of Blood on DVD

Those who are fans of Akira Kurosawa's Macbeth adaptation THRONE OF
BLOOD may be pleased to learn that a Criterion DVD edition was announced
today.  The edition will include a newly remastered picture, the
original soundtrack, an audio commentary track by Michael Jeck (an
expert on Japanese film), new subtitles, a trailer, and an essay by
Stephen Prince.  This promises to be comparable to Criterion's fine
laserdisc edition (long out of print), and a significant improvement
over the Mei Ah DVD version, the only DVD version with English subtitles
currently available (to my knowledge).  It is scheduled to appear on May
13.

Cheers,
Douglas Lanier
