Fox To Release S*P*Y*S In April

Fox Home Entertainment will release Irvin Kershner's 1974 comedy S*P*Y*S, which re-teamed Donald Sutherland and Elliot Gould, on April 3. The DVD, which will retail for $19.98, will include the bonus features "Inside S*P*Y*S" and "Irvin Kershner: The Road To 'The Road Of 100 Days.'" I remember enjoying this movie when I was a kid, but I do have misgivings as to how it will hold up... Hopefully those misgivings are ill-founded! (Still, I wouldn't expect M*A*S*H...) That same day Fox will also (finally!) release the 1967 Dudley Moore/Peter Cook classic Bedazzled (which, for the spy connection, also featured Fathom star Raquel Welch as "Lilian Lust, the babe with the bust!") and Richard Lester's Royal Flash, starring Malcolm McDowell and based on the "Flashman" books by Octopussy screenwriter George Macdonald Fraser. McDowell will provide an audio commentary for that one.
