Kino Lorber March 7 will release on Blu-ray Disc two classic romantic comedies from the 1980s, Secret Admirer and Making Mr. Right.
Both films carry suggested retail prices (SRP) of $24.95, with advance orders by retailers due Feb. 7.
In director David Greenwalt’s Secret Admirer (1985), an anonymous note sets off a romantic chain-mail reaction with hilarious results. When high school heartthrob Michael (C. Thomas Howell) receives an unsigned love letter, he assumes it’s from prom queen Deborah Anne (Kelly Preston) instead of pretty honor student Toni (Lori Loughlin). And when Michael accidentally misplaces the letter, the juicy jottings soon make their way into the hands of the whole neighborhood. Cast members also include Fred Ward, Dee Wallace, Leigh Taylor-Young, Cliff De Young, Casey Siemaszko, Courtney Gains and Corey Haim.
The film arrives on Blu-ray Disc from a brand-new HD master from a 2K scan of the 35mm Interpositive. Bonus features include a new audio commentary from Greenwalt, co-writer Jim Kouf and associate producer Lynn Kouf, moderated by filmmaker and historian Daniel Kremer.
Making Mr. Right (1987) was directed by Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan) and stars John Malkovich and Ann Magnuson. Magnuson portrays savvy and beautiful PR executive Frankie Stone, who is hired by a giant technology company to “humanize” their latest invention — an android-astronaut named Ulysses (Malkovich). She is shocked to discover that her new client embodies all the qualities she’s ever wanted in a man. Shot by cinematographer Ed Lachman, the film also features performances by Ben Masters, Glenne Headly, Laurie Metcalf, Polly Bergen and Hart Bochner.
Making Mr. Right also arrives on disc from a brand-new HD master from a 2K scan of the 35mm Interpositive. Bonus features include a new audio commentary from Seidelman and Magnuson, as well as new interviews with both.
Both films are part of Kino Lorber’s Studio Classics line.
