Despite David Lynch’s recent negative attitudes towards the home video market, one of his earlier films, the dramatic true story Elephant Man, is coming to DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment in December.
Based on the true story of John Merrick, a 19th-century Englishman afflicted with a disfiguring congenital disease. With the help of kindly Dr. Frederick Treves, Merrick attempts to regain the dignity he lost after years spent as a side-show freak.
“Elephant Man” will be presented in its original 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with audio in its original monaural as well as a remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track. The disc will include a theatrical trailer, a narrated photo gallery, retrospective cast & crew interviews and an interview with Academy Award winning make-up artist Christopher Tucker.
December 11th is the release date for the dramatic tale of the Elephant Man. The suggested retail price of $29.99.
