Fox shines up DVDs for Oscar’s 75th

Studio to release restored, remastered best pic winners

HOLLYWOOD — Fox is helping the Golden Guy celebrate his diamond year.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will launch a line of DVDs under the title Fox Studio Classics, tied in with the 75th anniversary of the Academy Awards.

On Jan. 14, the studio will release three completely restored and remastered best pic winners: “All About Eve,” “Gentleman’s Agreement” and “How Green Was My Valley.” After that, on the first Tuesday of every month, the label will release a pic that won or was nominated for an Oscar.

Titles will be priced at $19.98.

Package deal

Any consumer who buys three Fox Studio Classics titles will be given a DVD or VHS copy of “Sunrise” — the 1929 film that earned the Academy’s only trophy “for unique and artistic production.” It also picked up Oscars for actress and cinematography (“Wings” was the overall best picture winner).

Titles in the series include “Viva Zapata,” “The Grapes of Wrath,” “Anastasia” and “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing.” Additional restored titles with extra features will be released to retailers each month in 2003 and beyond.

Buzz boosters

The studio is planning a major national media campaign and will develop a related Web site.

With 14 Oscar nominations, “Eve” held the record for most noms until “Titanic” matched the number. It won six trophies. “Agreement” and “Valley” won three and five, respectively.

Other studios have released DVDs of classic pics that won Oscars. Warner Home Video is releasing special DVD editions of “Amadeus,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Unforgiven” on Sept. 24.
