'Elvis and Anabelle' gets DVD release--finally
Looks like Austin-shot Elvis and Anabelle starring Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) will finally get a U.S. DVD release on June 20. The film premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in 2007 and has aired a couple of times on Lifetime (another airing is slated for June 7--set that Tivo).
Will Geiger's odd story of a dead beauty queen who comes back to life and falls in love with her embalmer has reached a sort of quiet cult status despite its lack of distribution before now. It was a product of Burnt Orange Productions, the ill-fated film production arm of the University of Texas.
Here's a bit more about the film.
