A movie musical Blu-ray debut!

Cult movie musical THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY'S is set for its Blu-ray debut today, February 24.

The official description of THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY'S is as follows: "Britt Ekland portrays Rachel, a beautiful young Amish woman who leaves her Pennsylvania home and comes to New York City in hopes of becoming a dancer, and ends up doing something quite different: inventing the striptease! Jason Robards gives a wonderful performance as Raymond Paine, the somewhat sleazy star of Minsky's burlesque show, who takes on interest in Rachel's many charms. But his admiration is challenged by Chick Williams (Norman Wisdom), Raymond's comedy partner for the past ten years. And when Rachel's dress is torn accidentally, she plays it up and finds herself the object of even more affection - from the very appreciative audience! The leader of an anti-vice group has everyone arrested, but not before Rachel becomes the toast of the town, in this hilarious - and scandalous - hit! Starring Jason Robards, Britt Ekland, Norman Wisdom, Forrest Tucker, and Harry Andrews. STREET DATE: FEBRUARY 24, 2015."

THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY'S is available today, February 24.
