Filmbo's Chick Magnet has reported that Lions Gate is going to be releasing an Alain Delon box set in the late part of March. The titles include DIABOLICALLY YOURS (1967), LA PISCINE (1969), THE WIDOW COUDERC (1971), LE GITAN (1975) and NOTRE HISTOIRE (1984).
I am especially thrilled to see LA PISCINE (THE SWIMMING POOL) and DIABOLICALLY YOURS finally hitting region one disc, as they are two of my favorite Delon films. Kimberly from Cinebeats posted an excellent look at DIABOLICALLY YOURS a few months back that can be read here.
It's thrilling to see more of Delon's work becoming more readily available stateside and this set looks to be one of the essential purchases of 2008. Thanks to Filmbo's Chick Magnet for posting this information.
