They’ve also announced that they’re working on a new 4K restored Blu-ray release of Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms (1957), directed by Charles Vidor. Coming too (to Blu-ray and/or DVD) are Marjorie Morningstar (1958), Gunsmoke: The Long Ride (1993), Compulsion (1959), and The Pied Piper (1972).
