All right, let’s finish the week with a little more fun release news…

The film has been digitally restored and remastered in 4K and will be presented in 1080p on this release. The set includes audio commentary with Frank Capra Jr., the Frank Capra’s American Dream feature-length documentary, 5 featurettes (Frank Capra Jr. Remembers... Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Conversations with Frank Capra Jr.: A Family History, Conversations with Frank Capra Jr.: The Golden Years, Frank Capra: Collaboration, and The Frank Capra I Knew), the film’s original theatrical trailer, and a rare international trailer.
