Coming to DVD: Back Street (1941 and 1961)

The TCM Vault Collection has a new release of Universal films coming on October 3rd: a two-film set containing the 1941 and 1961 versions of BACK STREET.

The 1941 film stars Charles Boyer and Margaret Sullavan, supported by Richard Carlson. It was directed by Robert Stevenson.

The 1961 edition stars Susan Hayward and John Gavin, along with Vera Miles. It was produced by Ross Hunter and directed by David Miller.

Turner Classic Movies aired both versions last weekend.

If only TCM could have also released the 1932 Irene Dunne version also...

There's surely no question that the 1932 version with Irene Dunne, so beautifully directed by John Stahl, is the masterpiece of the three. I can't imagine anyone who has seen all three who would not agree with that.

So why is Universal leaving that out here? One must assume they have it.

I only have the 1932 version, which I like very much!
