Powerhouse Films announces ‘Indicator Series’ releases for March 2017

This March, INDICATOR continues its mission to publish unmissable films in lovingly-produced Limited Dual Format Editions (including UK premiere Blu-rays and a collector’s booklet).

Available on 20 March, INDICATOR presents three all-time classics: John Huston’s brilliant, powerful boxing drama FAT CITY (1972), with Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges; Fritz Lang’s noir masterpiece THE BIG HEAT (1953), starring Glenn Ford and Gloria Grahame; and Martin Ritt’s bold Hollywood-blacklist comedy drama THE FRONT (1976), featuring Woody Allen and Zero Mostel.

Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these essential releases will feature expertly encoded presentations, a range of new and archival extra features, and newly-improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Published in limited runs, these first pressings will also contain an exclusive, full-colour booklet with newly commissioned writing and full film credits.



FAT CITY

Directed by John Huston

Starring Jeff Bridges, Stacy Keach, Susan Tyrell, Candy Clark

Release Date: 20 March, 2017

John Huston’s sombre but compassionate boxing drama is a criminally-underseen late-career masterpiece from the great director.

Peppered with outstanding performances this gritty yet affectionate look at the world of small-time boxing highlights a down-and-out fighter and a young up-and-comer, both moving through a world of seedy gyms and flop houses.

THE FRONT

Directed by Martin Ritt

What if there were a list?

A list that said: Our finest actors weren’t allowed to act. Our best writers aren’t allowed to write.

Our funniest comedians aren’t allowed to make us laugh. What would it be like if there were such a list?

It would be like America in 1953.
