Brand New 4K Master! From Billy Wilder, the legendary director of Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd., Stalag 17, Witness for the Prosecution, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Irma La Douce and The Fortune Cookie, comes this classic drama starring screen great Ray Milland (X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes, Reap the Wild Wind). An uncompromising look at the devastating effects of alcoholism, The Lost Weekend was almost never released because of the poor reaction by preview audiences unaccustomed to such stark realism from Hollywood. It has since gone on to be regarded as one of the all-time great dramas in movie history, featuring Milland’s haunting portrayal of a would-be writer’s dissatisfaction with life that leads to a self-destructive three-day binge. Filled with riveting imagery, this masterpiece, co-starring Jane Wyman (All That Heaven Allows), won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (Wilder), Best Actor (Milland) and Best Screenplay (Charles Brackett and Wilder), and was nominated for Best Cinematography (John F. Seitz), Best Editing (Doane Harrison) and Best Score (Miklós Rózsa).
