Official Details on "Picture of Dorian Gray" DVD
Warner Bros. has confirmed the rumors that The Picture of Dorian Gray will arrive on DVD on October 7, 2008. Here's the official release:
Burbank, Calif., June 9, 2008 - The Picture of Dorian Gray never gets old. On October 7, just in time for Halloween, Warner Home Video will introduce one of their most requested titles on DVD - MGM's gripping 1945 adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Victorian horror novel about a man who stays eternally young while his famous portrait ages through the years. The film, starring George Sanders, Angela Lansbury and Donna Reed, was nominated for three Academy Awards,®-winning one for Best Cinematography and a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Miss Lansbury. The Picture of Dorian Gray ($19.97 SRP) has been remastered especially for this release and boasts new bonus features, including cast commentaries, a vintage short plus a special cartoon.
Cast commentaries by Angela Lansbury and film historian/screenwriter Steve Haberman
1945 MGM short Stairway To Light

It appears that Dorian Gray will not be a part of Warner's previously announced horror box set, as we previously speculated.
