Robert Altman's '3 Women' - on Blu-ray 13th July

06th of July 2015, 14:00

Arrow is thrilled to announce the UK premiere Blu-ray release of Robert Altman’s celebrated classic, 3 Women, the 1977 acclaimed master work that pipped Star Wars to top Roger Ebert’s films of the year on its initial release. Presented in a glorious new 4k digital transfer, this restored dream-like masterpiece of cinema will be available on Blu-ray from 13th July 2015.

The latest Robert Altman release to come from Arrow Academy (following The Long Goodbye) this new disc will feature an interview with David Thompson, editor of Altman on Altman and producer of the BBC’s Robert Altman in England. The disc will also include an archive interview with Shelley Duvall from the Cannes Film Festival (where she won the Best Actress Award) in which she describes working with Altman, his methods and how she started acting.

Rounding off the disc are image galleries featuring behind-the-scenes photos, the Cannes Film Festival press conference and promotional shots. The Blu-ray comes with a collector’s booklet with new writing on the film by film critic David Jenkins and excerpts from Altman on Altman, illustrated with original stills.

Synopsis

Maverick filmmaker Robert Altman continued a stunning run of celebrated work that included McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye and Nashville with 3 Women, a dreamy masterpiece that would fend off the titanic Star Wars as Roger Ebert’s best film of 1977.

Shy and impressionable Pinky (Sissy Spacek, Badlands, Carrie) strikes up a friendship with her fellow nurse ‘Thoroughly Modern’ Millie (Shelley Duvall, Nashville, Thieves Like Us). As the two spend more time together Pinky becomes dependent on Millie, adopting aspects of her personality and appearance. Things take an unusual and darker turn as Pinky discovers Millie with a man, a local bar owner whose wife (Janice Rule) forms the third of the title’s three women.

Based on a series of dreams and influenced by Ingmar Bergman’s Persona, Robert Altman cut the deal for 3 Women with Twentieth Century Fox in a matter of minutes and the remarkable faith of the studio would produce one of the most striking works of the period.
