Sun Valley Serenade (1941) still stuck in the shade

PostThu Dec 21, 2017 12:10 pm

I've been waiting for years for Fox's "Sun Valley Serenade" to come out on dvd. It never has.

It should still have some appeal. It was the last successful (?) star vehicle for Sonja Henie, and has that great
Glenn Miller band, on state-of-the art multi-track recording. Some enchanting period footage of Sun Valley, Idaho too.

I don't think it's a Miller Estate issue. "Orchestra Wives" made it onto dvd.

It has been officially released here in the UK on DVD by Fox - I have a copy. Think it came out as part of a Fox box set of musicals in 2007.

And there is also a nice soundtrack release coupled with Orchestra Wives issued by Kritzerland in the US:

It was remastered in high-def a couple of years back and offered in a group of Fox titles for streaming rental or purchase from iTunes. It's on Vudu now.

Some of the titles in that group have been released on blu-ray.

Here's the line-up of titles:
