The Black Dahlia on DVD

The day after Christmas, when you're plucking sleepies from the corners of your eyes and cleaning up Christmas wrapping paper, throw on THE BLACK DAHLIA for a little "mystery" and "intrigue." Because nothing says "mystery" and "intrigue" like waking up with dried egg nog on your back and forty bucks in your pocket. "Mystery" you say? "Intrigue" you say? Indeed.

On December 26th, Brian DePalma's adaptation of James Ellroy's crime novel will be released in seperate anamorphic widescreen and full screen editions. Any word on upcoming collector's and director's cut and extended editions is at this point strictly "rumor" and "hearsay". "Rumor" you say? "Hearsay" you say....all right, I'm done.


  • "Reality and Fiction: The Story of the Black Dahlia" - A conversation with best-selling novelist James Ellroy, who gives an in-depth perspective on the crime and how he turned fact into fiction
  • "The Case File" - A behind-the-scenes look at the filmmakers, actors and crew that brought this infamous mystery to the screen
  • "The De Palma Touch" - A look at how acclaimed director Brian De Palma brought his unique and shocking visual style to the film
  • English & French DD5.1 Surround
  • Spanish DD2.0 Stereo
  • English SDH, French & Spanish subtitles

Extra Tidbit: Eva Green (The Dreamers, Kingdom of Heaven) turned down the role of "Madeleine Linscott" to avoid being typecast as a "femme fatale". The role eventually went to Hilary "Chad? Chad Lowe who?" Swank.
