Second Woody Allen UK Blu-Ray Box Set Six Films 1979-1985 Released December


Arrow Academy recently acquired the Blu-Ray rights to Woody Allen’s catalogue from 1971 to 1991. They have been rolling out both standalone releases and box sets for 19 films. We now have details and artwork for the second box set.

The second box set is called Six Films 1979-1985. It will include the films
Stardust Memories
A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy
Broadway Danny Rose
The Purple Rose Of Cairo

The set will be released on 12th December 2016, and you can pre-order on Amazon UK. The set will come with a book containing archival writing. No other special features as far as we can tell. The Blu-Rays are Region B.

Which means Arrow have a very packed schedule. They are also doing standalone Blu-Ray releases for each title (excluding Annie Hall and Manhattan). The complete schedule is:

26th September
Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex
Six Films 1971-1978 Box Set

3rd October
Love And Death

14th November

12th December
Six Films 1979-1985 Box Set
Stardust Memories
A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy

One more box set will follow, as well as another 10 more standalone films. No doubt they will roll out through the first few months of 2017.

This tight schedule is a sharp contrast to the US, where Twilight Time have been releasing two or three titles a year for several years. These are shaping up to be the best way to own a physical copy of Allen’s early decades of work.

Once again, get them all at Amazon.

  1. Kudos to The British for getting these great sets. This is a major coup for America’s cousins from afar. I wish this sort of access to Woody’s catalog was available in the states like they did with his DVD’s. Whether it be Woody’s box sets or Kate Middleton or Kate Beckinsale or Keira Knightly there’s great things going on “across the pond!!!!!!!!’
