Groovy Giveaway: Cabaret 40th Anniversary on Blu-ray
Courtesy of The Karpel Group and Warner Home Video, this week's Groovy Giveaway is three Blu-rays of Cabaret, Bob Fosse’s ground-breaking Oscar-winning 1972 musical drama starring Liza Minnelli (Arthur, The Sterile Cuckoo), Joel Grey (TV’s Oz), Michael York (the Austin Powers films), Helmut Griem and Marisa Berenson (I am Love).
Remastered for the first time in over 20 years with new and vintage special features, Cabaret tells the story of Sally Bowles (Minnelli), a flamboyant and eccentric American entertainer who sings in Berlin’s decadent Kit Kat Club in 1931 - even as Nazism rises in Germany. She falls in love with a British language teacher (York) – whom she shares with a homosexual German baron (Griem). But Sally's insular, carefree, tolerant and fragile cabaret world is about to be crushed under the boot of the Nazis as Berlin becomes a trap from which her German friends will not escape.
Cabaret will be available in a premium Blu-ray Book format containing 40 pages of insightful photos and text on February 5 (it's also available on DVD).
To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners must have a US mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Monday, February 4 (CST).
