It is the first time that this film will be available on Blu-Ray. The rights for this film has always been set apart from a majority of Allen’s films, being part of a one film deal with the long defunct Palomar Pictures.
Take The Money And Run was written, directed and starred Woody Allen. He plays Virgil Starkwell, a hapless crook, whose adventures is really a showcase for Allen’s jokes. The film, released in 1969, also stars Janet Margolin.
It seems unlikely there will be any supplemental material, something Allen doesn’t normally allow. But previous DVD editions have been poorly packaged. If there is any improvements on screen resolution or sound quality, it will be a big step up. We will keep you informed on more details of the reissue.
