Liza Minnelli-Led STERILE CUCKOO Gets 10/16 DVD Release

The Sterile Cuckoo will be released on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time on October 16, 2012 by Olive Films.

Alan J. Pakula’s 1968 directorial debut stars Liza Minnelli (Cabaret) as Pookie Adams, a relentlessly kooky coed who falls in love with a reserved young college student, Jerry Payne (Wendell Burton). She actively pursues the shy boyish-man and helps him through the tough first months in school. They both benefit from the relationship; he gains self-confidence and she’s now able to come to grips with her unhappy home life, but sadly he gradually outgrows her.

This very realistic and heartbreaking love story received two Oscar® nominations, one for Minnelli (Best Actress) and one for Fred Karlin and Dory Previn for their song, “Come Saturday Morning”.
