Liza Minnelli's TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME, JUNIE MOON to Debut on Blu-ray

Olive Films, a boutique theatrical and home entertainment distribution label dedicated to bringing independent, foreign, and classic films to DVD and Blu-ray, has just announced that August 16th will be the Blu-ray debut of Liza Minnelli's Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (1970).

"Working on this film with Ken Howard was such a joy," said Liza Minnelli in regards to the Olive Films release of Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon. "I look forward to watching this film again for the first time in years and am so happy that a new audience will be able to discover it."

The film, which has been previously unavailable on disc, comes to DVD and Blu-ray August 16th. It boasts a reputation amongst fans of Otto Preminger, because it fits perfectly into and provides an interesting perspective on his oddball late career, including films such as Skidoo, Such Good Friends, and Bunny Lake is Missing. The cult classic also showcases one of Liza Minnelli's most emotional and powerful performances.

At the time of the film's original release, director Preminger said of its star, "I am not the easiest man in the world to work for and I do not praise people promiscuously, but I tell you Liza Minnelli is a professional actress who has more natural acting talent than almost any other young actress I can think of."

Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon focuses on a trio of MISFITS rejected by mainstream society, made up of a former party girl whose face has been badly scarred by an acid attack (Liza Minnelli), an epileptic young man (Ken Howard), and a gay paraplegic man (RoBert Moore). Painting a rich and loving portrait of its characters, the film found its way into the hearts of audiences everywhere. With the film robbed of a previous DVD or Blu-ray, fans of Liza Minnelli, Otto Preminger, and cult classics can look forward to the Olive Films release.

Olive Films is a Chicago-based boutique theatrical and home entertainment distribution label dedicated to bringing independent, foreign, documentary, and classic films to life. Its catalog boasts over 500 titles ranging from Hollywood classics to contemporary titles. More information about Olive Films may be found at olivefilms.com.
