Night and the City With 2 Versions on Blu-ray

Criterion Edition Has US and UK Cut on Board

Jules Dassin's film noir Night and the City exists in 2 versions. Apart from the US version, there's also a British version that offers more scenes than the original, an alternate opening and a completely new score. Criterion presents the film's original version with a 4k restoration and puts the alternate British cut in the bonus section (probably without the 4k sweetener).

The Blu-ray has its US release on August 4th, 2015. You can order it at Amazon.com.
 

The specs:

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Alternate presentation of the 101-minute British version of the film
  • Audio commentary from 2005 with film scholar Glenn Erickson
  • Interview with director Jules Dassin from 2005
  • Excerpts from a 1972 televison interview with Dassin
  • Comparison of the scores for the British and American versions of the film
  • Trailer
  • An essay by film scholar Paul Arthur
