Some Tyrone Power Movies Finally Make It To Video

Of the movies in the Tyrone Power DVD box set with a 5/1/07 release date, Prince of Foxes and Son of Fury never had a video release in any format that I know of. Prince of Foxes has a great performance by Orson Welles as Cesare Borgia, work he took to get the money to restart his production of his movie Othello. Co-star Dudley Digges in Son of Fury has one of the best supporting roles of this now almost unknown actor, playing a lawyer. As far as I know, these two movies have been missing in action for eight or more years on cable (AMC or Cinemax).

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Tyrone Power: The Swashbuckler Box Set for 1st May 2007. Known for his masterful swordplay and irresistible charm, Tyrone Power was destined to silver-screen stardom, hailing from one of the most prominent acting dynasties dating back to the late 18th century. Five of Power’s most renowned action-adventure films are featured for the first time in an all-new DVD collection. The set includes The Black Rose, based on a novel about a 13th century Saxon nobleman and his search for prestige and wealth in the Far East; Blood and Sand, the tale of a matador who inevitably becomes spoiled by greed, fame and adulterated lust; Captain from Castile, based on the epic novel about a Spanish soldier’s escape from the Spanish Inquisition; Prince of Foxes, which earned two Oscar nominations, is set in the 1500s and portrays Power as Captain Andrea Orsini who is under the charge of military commander and aristocrat Cesare Borgia; and Son of Fury: The Story of Benjamin Blake, an action-adventure saga in which an orphaned son, played by Power, rebels and leaves his family in order begin a new life and create his own fortune. Available together for the first time on R1 DVD, the all-new box set offers revealing bonus materials, such as audio commentaries, fearurettes, photo galleries, original theatrical trailers and more.
