Last week, when we showed you some pictures of the various makeup designs that Al Pacino developed for his character Big Boy Caprice for the movie Dick Tracy, I mentioned that I hoped we would be able to experience the film on blu-ray soon. Well, if you shared that sentiment with me I have good news. A release date for the film’s high-def home video release has been set – December 11.
Now the Amazon listingdoesn’t mention any extras for the disc yet, but I would think that there should be a few things that could be put on there at least.
While the script might be a bit bare bones, the production design of the film is just flat out stunning. By replicating the look of a Sunday color comic strip (all the reds are the same red, all blues the same blue, etc…) star and director Warren Beatty created a film that was eye-catching and stylistically paved the way for films like Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City. And he was able to do it in the days before CGI.
