First off on June 24th are two new releases from Paramount Home Entertainment, Beautician and the Beast and Popeye.Beautician and the Beast will include an audio commentary by Fran Drescher, while Robert Atlman's big screen version of Popeye will have none. Both DVD releases will come in new remastered anamorphic widescreen transfers and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound remixes.

On July 1st Paramount Home Entertainment will release Flight of the Intruder and Roman Polanski's The Tenant. Both will have anamorphic widescreen transfers, but only Flight of the Intruder will have a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, The Tenant will be mono. I was hoping for a better release of Polanski's The Tenant, but with much of Paramount's catalog titles, it's a pretty bare bones release. Retail price is $19.95.

Stay tuned...
