The never-ending and unforgettable drama Dear mom celebrates its 40th anniversary with an all-new Blu-ray in the Paramount Presents lineup, launched on June 1, 2021 by Paramount Home Entertainment. To celebrate we have an exclusive clip from the release that is part of the special features, a new commentary from drag performer Hedda Lettuce. Check out the iconic scene below.
Based on the controversial bestselling Christina Crawford novel, Mommie Dearest features a powerful performance by Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford, fighting for her career while battling the inner demons of her private life. While the Crawford audience was an object of glamorous and willful admiration, behind the scenes is a private Crawford – the woman desperate to be a single mother and trying to survive in a devastating industry that is mindlessly swallowing up careers.
Recently restored from a 4K film transfer, Mommie Dearest is presented in a limited edition Blu-ray disc with collectable packaging featuring a fold-out image of the film poster and an interior with key moments from the film. The Blu-ray includes a new Filmmaker Focus with biographer Justin Bozung on the film and director Frank Perry, new audio commentary with American drag queen Hedda Lettuce, access to a digital copy of the film, as well as bonus content already published.
