The Great Moment (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Preston Sturges
Pre-orders are generally sent several days in advance of street date.
Legendary filmmaker Preston Sturges, the writer/director of The Great McGinty, Christmas in July, The Lady Eve and Sullivan’s Travels, turns to a more serious subject matter focusing on one of the great medical discoveries in modern history. The Great Moment takes inspiration from the true-life story of Dr. William Morton (Joel McCrea, Union Pacific, The Palm Beach Story), a dedicated dentist who discovers ether, otherwise known as anesthesia, in 1846. The doctor’s great contribution to humanity, the tribulations he later faced sharing his knowledge, and his reluctance to capitalize on his discovery, are meticulously laced with typical Preston Sturges humor and drama. The stellar cast includes Betty Field (The Shepherd of the Hills), Harry Carey (The Spoilers), William Demarest (Easy Living), Franklin Pangborn (The Bank Dick) and Porter Hall (Murder, He Says).
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Great Without Glory: Introduction by Film Historian Constantine Nasr
Triumph Over Pain: A Celebration of Preston Sturges (with Preston Sturges' Son Tom Sturges, Acclaimed Filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich and Documentary Filmmaker Constantine Nasr)
