As you may know, Cameron is a big fan of Harold and Maude, Hal Ashby’s 1971 cult classic starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. Criterion has recently released the film on DVD and Blu-ray and we wanted to bring it to your attention. If you haven’t seen it, we urge you to give it a look. The disc is also filled with some great extra features.

  • New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Optional remastered uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • New audio commentary by Hal Ashby biographer Nick Dawson and producer Charles B. Mulvehill
  • Illustrated audio excerpts from seminars by Ashby and writer-producer Colin Higgins
  • New interview with songwriter Yusuf/Cat Stevens
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Matt Zoller Seitz; a 1971¬†New York Times¬†profile of star Ruth Gordon; and two excerpted interviews, one from 1997 with star Bud Cort and cinematographer John Alonzo and one from 2001 with executive producer Mildred Lewis
